Game Script

In the Year of the Dragon, in a world beyond the realms, I, like all the others, awaited the birth of the dragon of whom the prophecies foretold.

But the Dark Master heard the prophecies as well.

I should have hidden the eggs long before, but I. . . I thought they were safe. Oh, how I was wrong.

IGNITUS: May the Ancestors watch over you. May they watch over us all.

Eventually, the egg came to rest in a distant swamp, where a family of dragonflies gathered 'round, wondering what magnificent creature could possibly live inside.

They didn't have to wonder for long. . .

It was a purple dragon whom they eventually adopted and raised as one of their own. They named him Spyro, and he grew up alongside Sparx, the young dragonfly who was born the same day.

From that day forward, Sparx and Spyro were raised as brothers.


SPARX: C'mon, mom said we have to hurry. The Bulb Spiders are wrecking her mushroom patch.

SPARX: Jump over this hole, Spyro!
Press A to Jump.

SPARX: You're going to have to jump higher now!
Press A twice to double jump.

SPARX: Grab this ledge, Spyro.
Double jump up to the ledge, then press A again to jump over the lip.

SPARX: Flap your wings, big guy!
Double jump, then hold A to glide.

SPARX: Hurry up, slowpoke. Just jump down.
Press Down and A at the same time to jump down.

SPARX: I'll bet you can't break that gem cluster!
Press B to attack the gem cluster.

SPARX: Spyro! Look out for those Frogweeds!
Hold B while moving to charge.

SPARX: C'mon, HURRY UP! The mushroom patch is just over here.

WHACK-A-BULB SPIDER! Hit each Bulb Spider as it pops up from the ground. Whack them all within the time limit to win! Press Left and Right to move Spyro and A to WHACK.

Bad Luck.. Try Again?
Congratulations! You Win!

SPARX: Good job with those Bulb Spiders. We should head home now before it gets dark.

SOLDIER: Got you, you little gnat! Ha ha!
SPARX: SPYRO! Help me!
Hold the R to use your fire breath.

SPARX: Thanks, Spyro! I thought I was a goner! You almost toasted me too!
SPYRO: I don't know what happened. I just got angry, and fire came out!

SPARX: Mom! Dad! You should have seen what Spyro did! He breathed FIRE!
FLASH: We knew this day would come. We just hoped it wouldn't come so soon. You are not a Dragonfly, Spyro. You are a Dragon.
SPYRO: I'm a Dragon? So. . I'm not your real son?
NINA: You are our real son. It's just that you came from somewhere else.
SPYRO: Where did I come from? I want to know who I am.
NINA: There are rumors of a creature that lives in a cave in the swamp. Perhaps he will be able to help you.

NINA: Be careful, boys.
SPARX: Aww Mom..
SPYRO: We'll be careful, I promise.

SPARX: It looks pretty dark in there, Spyro.
SPYRO: Don't be a scaredy-fly.

SPYRO: Heeello?
IGNITUS: It can't be! You're alive!
IGNITUS: Hardly that, my young friend. I am Ignitus, Guardian of Fire. I can hardly believe my eyes. The purple dragon lives!
SPYRO: Purple dragon? What am I?
IGNITUS: A purple dragon is born only once every ten generations: a special creature of incredible power!
SPARX: Spyro? Special?
IGNITUS: Very much so. We are at war with Cynder, an evil dragon, slave to the Dark Master. You must help us!
SPYRO: But what can I do?
IGNITUS: Volteer, the Guardian of Lightning, has been captured by the Ice King. You must free him so he can help us fight the Dark Master.
SPYRO: I'll do what I can.
SPARX: Oh brother, here we go..

SPYRO: I wonder where the Guardian of Lightning is being held. . .
SPARX: Well I'm no hero, but how about we follow the path?
SPYRO: Hrrrmphh.

SPYRO: I wonder what all these statues are for.
SPARX: I think one of them just blinked.
SPYRO: No way! You're crazy.

SPARX: Are we there yet? It's chilly out here.
SPYRO: Stop complaining; I'm sure we're almost there.
SPARX: What about a fire? And marshmallows! Mm..

SPARX: What? I can't see anything.
SPARX: Ahh!! Spyro, look out!!

SPARX: Take that! We showed him!
VOLTEER: A purple dragon! I am Volteer, and I must commend you two on your valiant efforts. Incredible, amazing, wond..
SPYRO: No time to talk! we have to get back to Ignitus!
VOLTEER: Ignitus? He lives? I have much to discuss with him. Terrible things are afoot.
SPARX: Does this guy ever stop talking?

VOLTEER: . .and so I was captured, and my power stored in a Magic Orb, drained away by Cynder.
IGNITUS: This must be a part of the Dark Master's evil plan. We have to stop them!
SPYRO: But what can I do?

IGNITUS: Cynder. She is not as evil as you believe.

SPARX: What about me? I helped too!
TERRADOR: . .and his incredible friend.
SPARX: That's more like it!
SPYRO: Are you feeling better, Cynder?
CYNDER: Yes, thanks to you Spyro.
SPARX: Aww brother, here we go..
SPYRO: We don't know what happened to the Dark Master, do we?
