Elite Enemies

Elite Enemies are extra tough versions of the enemies that you fight throughout the game. You will recognise them by the health bar that appears at the bottom of the screen and the helmets that they wear.

The main trick with elites is to correctly work out which element you need to use first. The colour of the helmet will indicate this, select the element that has the exact colour of the helmet and attack with it until the helmet flies off. This reduces the armour of the enemy and it becomes much easier to damage. It will still take a lot of damage to kill it though.

Elites also have a much stronger attack than normal enemies, it can kill you pretty quickly if you don't avoid being hit.

The reward for killing an Elite is usually a large amount of blue gems to help level up your elemental abilities. You will need to kill all eight elites to gain 100%.

The Catacombs

  1. After the Golem loses its hand you'll find this at the bottom of the area.

Twilight Falls

  1. Follow a gust of wind that you find through a cave in the area where you push a tree over.

Valley of Avalar

  1. On top of a cliff directly over from the village.

Ruins of Warfang

  1. Return to where you got the Crystal Key in the bottom left after waking the statue.

The Dam

  1. Above a large doorway blocked with earth.

Burned Lands

  1. In a cave at the top of a half-bridge near the start of the first lava river.

Floating Islands

  1. After lighting all eight torches it appears near the largest section of stonework.
  2. On a triangular platform off to the right after the two doors.

I killed every elite in every level all the way to the ruins of warfang. That ugly troll elite is stupid. It just looks at me as I'm pressing XY and my dad is messing me up! I killed him with fury after using flame to get off his helmet. He was the easiest one ever!


You must mean the one in the valley of avalar! There is no city of Avalar. I killed that orc easy. The first two elites are so easy. I just killed them easy peasy. THe one in Avalar was easy too. I just stood on this little ledge after I got the helmet of with electricity and then shot fear (phantom fright) with cynder and since they are like homing missiles they just went round to him and pasted him while he was trying to get Spyro!!! Epic Fail for that elite!

I can't kill them. I've died when I tried killing the Twilight Falls one. But now I might try, now that I know what to do.

Elite Enemies are easy to beat if you have the cheats. Most of them anyways

actually i've defeated a couple of elites but i just can't be really bothered to it
#35 Spyro LoverGirl 08:33:45 26/09/2010
I hate Elite Enemies! They're really hard to defeat everywhere. I've completed the game but didn't defeat any of those elites.

Elite at the Dam level was the most difficult to defeat for me.

i killed the hero orc elite enemy in the burned lands in less than five seconds, no joke... and i had just been telling my dad that elite enemies are extra tough versions of the normal enemies, and then he automatically said "crikey! you're really good at this game!" i was staring at the screen like it had just commited a murder, because it had just taken me half an hour to defeat an ordinary hero orc smilie
