Spyro the Dragon is the Main Character in every single Spyro Game. He is purple and orange, and can control five main elements--Air, Earth, Fire, Ice, Electricity--but prefers fire. It is suggested he has a romantic relationship with Cynder at the end of The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon, and he acts like a brother to Sparx (mostly due to the fact they were raised as brothers).
Spyro is always followed by Sparx
Spyro first appeared in Spyro The Dragon on the console PlayStation 1, and his latest debut is in the upcoming Skylanders: Swap Force game.
