    Hunter the Cheetah

    This cheetah has been Spyro's friend since the second game and has aided him in his quest ever since. With his trusty bow and arrow Hunter now has the ability to use a crossbow to stop whatever gets in his way.

    Sparx the Dragonfly

    Sparx has protected Spyro from the beginning by providing him hit points to protect him from enemies. In this game, Sparx has his own mini game, where he has to reach the end of a tunnel by killing enemies on the way without dying. In return, the reward is a dragon egg or light gem.


    The game recieved mixed reviews but was regarded better than Enter the Dragonfly. Compared to the original three, the game was shorter and was aimed at a younger audience.
