Trivia: TBA

  • Spyro the Dragon: A Gnorc walks up to a mountain holding a sign with the company's name on it. He puts the sign in the mountain and goes "Rah!" as we zoom in the sign. We zoom out and Spyro charges at the Gnorc.
  • Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage/Gateway to Glimmer: After a few seconds, the sign tilts left. We zoom out from the sign as we see the caveperson, looking at it in Skelos Badlands. He tilts it back to normal. He jumps, running away as the Lava Lizard chomps the sign before chasing the caveperson.
  • Spyro: Year of the Dragon: After a few seconds, the sign twangs as we zoom out to see the dragon egg near it in Fireworks Factory. The hand touches the sign, and the Ninja Rhynoc's head peers up behind it. He jumps, flipping in the air and landing near the egg. He looks both ways as if no one is looking. He proceeds by taking the egg and walks away, but Spyro charges at him just in time, the egg is in the air, crushing the sign into pieces, and landing near Spyro.

FX/SFX: Depending on each game.

Music/Sounds: On Disruptor, none.

Music/Sounds Variants:
  • Spyro the Dragon: The sound of the footsteps as the Gnorc walks, a "thud" as he sticks the sign on top of the mountain, the Gnorc going, "Rah!" throughout the wind ambience and also the title's music.
  • Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage/Gateway to Glimmer: A wooden creak as the sign tilts with the ambience of the lava bubbling, one more creak as the cave person tilts it back, the Lava Lizard growls, the cave person goes "WOAH!", and a "chomp" sound with stomping sounds of its feet.
  • Spyro: Year of the Dragon: A famous Warner-Bros wooden twang, a piece of wood grabbed as the hand places the sign, a whoosh as he jumps, a thud as he lands, then the music begins, a "grab" foley sound as he takes the egg, a Hanna-Barbera running sound effect as Spyro charges, a punch sound as he knocks the Rhynoc down, a wood clatter as the egg crashes the sign, and a last thud as the egg lands near Spyro.

Availability: Seen on Disruptor, Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage/Gateway to Glimmer, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon.

Editor's Note: None.
