Console Version


Sequel to 2006's The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning, The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night continues the story, but as it's the second of a trilogy, it doesn't conclude it.

Welcome to my walkthrough for the The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night's PS2 version. Most everything should also apply to the Wii version but not to the Nintendo DS or Game Boy Advance versions.

If you've played the previous game, A New Beginning, you should already be familiar with what the gems in this game will do. Red will heal Spyro, Green will fill his magic bar, Blue will give him experience to upgrade his breath attacks, and purple fills Spyro's Fury bar.


This is almost identical to A New Beginning, your health is displayed by a red bar in the top left corner of the screen and is replenished by collecting Red Gems. These can be found by killing enemies or by smashing the red gem clusters you'll find strewn around the game. Once your bar empties Spyro will die and be sent back to the last checkpoint, which are quite frequent but usually difficult to accurately guess exactly what counts as one. For the most part you won't get set back too much.

Unlike A New Beginning though you can upgrade your health by collecting the five Health Relics hidden throughout the game. Refer to the Relic section for locations.


Again the same as in A New Beginning, this is displayed by a green bar in the top left corner and is used to power Spyro's breath attacks, both primary and secondary. You can fill it up by collecting green gems, dropped by enemies or found in green gem clusters, unlimited versions of the clusters are usually found near places where you will need to use a breath attack to move on such as near magical torches which require fire breath.

You can also upgrade your magic bar by collecting green Magic Relics, five of which are hidden around the game. Refer to the Relic section for locations.

Fire Breath, aka "Fire Blast", has been enhanced from the previous game, now it occasionally sends out a long range blast.

Ice Breath or "Polar Bomb", freezes enemies allowing you to freely melee them without interuption, though attacking can cause them to become free again. Smaller enemies become snowballs which you can roll about and even knock off any nearby edges.

Electric Breath, "Electric Orb", is completely different to what you may have enjoyed using previously. Instead of being able to drag enemies about Spyro creates an orb which you can either drop straight away or knock further off, detonating either manually by pressing the primary breath again or leaving it to go off by itself. The effect is to throw enemies up into the air, as well as damaging them of course.

And finally Earth Breath has become "Earth Flail". A devastating attack which when held down you can swing about through enemies knocking them about. Jumping in the air and holding the primary breath attack will automatically spin Spyro around, but you're more likely to miss.


Melee has been complemented by a variety of new elemental secondary attacks, all of which take Spyro into the fray rather than staying out of it with primary or the secondary of the previous game.

Comet Dash, the fire attack, causes Spyro to rush into enemies with more force than a simple charge.

Ice Tail freezes and knocks back enemies close to Spyro.

Electric Whirlwind turns Spyro into a mini yellow tornado, you control the path, ripping through enemies and throwing them up into the air.

Earth Pound throws nearby enemies up into the air so that you can melee them.


Just about identical to the previous game again. Collecting Purple Gems will fill the circle surrounding the element icon in the top left corner of your screen and when full you can unleash a devastating attack on all the surrounding enemies.


And again with the similarities with A New Beginning. Collecting the blue versions of the gems, or Blue Spirit Gems as they're called, will fill up a small pool in the Level Up screen which will show you exactly how much your collection of gems will advance your primary breaths. These spirit gems tend to be found in the remains of dead enemies or in blue clusters, usually hidden slightly out of the general path.

Even if the game is suggesting that you can fill up a level for a breath, your pool will still collect Blue Spirit gems so don't worry about losing out on experience if you're saving for some new breath that you haven't got yet if that's what you want to do.

I've got an ace cheat to play as dark spyro even if u havent completed the game. (its only for ps2 though)
#29 spyro16 06:21:21 25/03/2010
The sad part in the ds version is that its not possible to use dark spyro. But there is a mode called GOD MODE were you can get hit as many times as you want and you wont die! There is another mode called FURY FRENZY where you can use your fury as many times as you want!

2 wenjoma:
What I like to do is go back to where you first saw the pirates jumping of the ship and look to the right of the pink lava. There is a small opening between the two boxes. Jump through there and a few more pirates will come. Kill them and then there is a wick in between two more boxes. Its to the left of where the pirates came. Ignite the wick and some boxes will blow up. You will automatically be placed at where they blew up so yo go in there and you will have to kill more pirates. It will show you two of the pirates jumping out of a boat right in front of you. Jump into the boat and it will take you to where you have to jump to the left. from there you need to jump on the box in front of you. then jump on the box in front of that one. Then you will need to glide over to the next box in front of that one. A pirate will jump up and try to attack you. Kill him then jump onto the box that is either in front of you to the left to the right depending on wich way your facing and you will see those other pirates w/ the swords. You just need to basicaly follow that trail meaning jump onto the first box were the first pirate is..... kill him......then there will be a box in front of you w/out a pirate. It will have a burning pile of wood......jump onto that box...... then there will be two othe boxes w/ pirates on them. Simply glide over there, kill the pirates, and on the last box you should be able to glide to the ship. Once on the ship two more pirates will attack you. After yu get rid of them there is a barrel to the right(the game will show you where it is). Hit that to release a cannonball. there is a cannon were you got on to the ship. load the cannonball into the cannon and breath fire onto the back of the canon and the game will show you where to go next. Incase you dont know use your ice breath to clear out the flaming wood piles. there will be some in the next area. (I would prefer to use the ice tail. That way yo dont have to hit the wood twice)

#22 All of them 00:34:29 25/07/2008
Fire, Ice, Earth, and Electric. These four elements join forces to create the most powerful element of them all.....
"The Dark Elemant"
This powerful element is nothing but black and a drop of purple.
This breath will make holes under enemies and the enemies will fall forever.Be strong, Spyro. May the force be with you.
