I think I know what Cynder was going to be before she got courruted. I think she was born a fire dragon because in this game her elements are poison, (burns like fire) fear, (fear is red and people fear fire) wind, (sorta like how fire travels) and shadow. (has the same shape as fire and she can breath shadow fire.

I find Malefor easy!!! The golem is... well... not harder... but more annoying! I think the easiest level ever is the Ruins of Warfang! I hate the Dragon City, the cannon and the siege engines are annyoing. The troll was easy though! I just used fury!

It does in the part where he makes a shield that surrender him.

the head thing worked but only on the second part. my friend came over again and we finally beat it! yes!!!! it took us like 5,000 tries!!! i love that music at the end! just like in TEN they play the best music! oh i forgot about the cheats because i wanted my friend and i to beat it without cheats! Plus, fury doesnt work because your fury meter doesnt go up in the malefor battle.
