I can beat this game without dying and I actually think some of the elite bosses are harder than Malefor himself

Yeah, I knew that. They cancelled it because it wasn't 'Spyro' enough. It still had the 'toys to life' thing though.

"Despite Cynder being a black dragon, her scales sometimes appear to be purple, be it dark purple, when compared to Spyro in Dawn of the Dragon. This appears mostly in previous concept art of Cynder, and in the final game of the series (where her body is seemingly always shown to be purple). It could be a glitch, a color error, or could also be a result of the lighting (notice that blacklights glow purple). It is also possible that if her coloring was black, it would be hard to see the shading on her." ~Spyro Wiki
