|~ Spyro, from his game debut.|
Spyro is the titular main protagonist of the video game series of the same name.
He is the hero of the Dragon Realms he calls home, commonly saving the world from evil that threatens the peace. Throughout his adventures, he is joined by a yellow dragonfly named Sparx, as well a large cast of characters who help him on his quests.
In the first game, he is voiced by Carlos Alazraqui in the first game, who also voiced Rocko in Rocko's Modern Life. In three of its sequels and the Reignited Trilogy series, he is voiced by Tom Kenny who was famous for voicing Dog from CatDog, SpongeBob SquarePants and Dad-o in Henry Hugglemonster. In the fifth sequel of the original series, he is voiced by Jess Harnell. He has no voice actor in the sixth and final sequel.
Spyro is known as a heroic dragon who is ready for action. He is fearless, spunky and has a blazing personality. Spyro also has little interest in love, seeing it as "a sad sight" (though in the Reignited Trilogy, it's teased that he might be a little interested in Elora, so he may be open to it in some cases). Spyro's exact characterization varies depending on the game; in the original version of the first game, he had a much more pronounced disrespectful and snarky attitude to a number of the dragons he saved and came off as mostly being interested in beating up Gnasty Gnorc. However, in Ripto's Rage and Year of the Dragon, he showed more actual care for those he saved, and his initial bratty and arrogant attitude was much more toned down, possibly to showcase him maturing and caring more about doing the right thing. Conversely, however, in A Hero's Tail, his arrogance becomes more pronounced again, and he actually denies helps to those who won't reward him at a couple of different points.
In the Reignited Trilogy, on the other hand, a lot of of his interactions, especially in the case of the first game, are tweaked or altered to make him come off as more playful, friendly and kid-like. While he's still impatient, showing reluctance to listen to some of the older dragons monologues or stories, as well as overly eager to torch Gnasty Gnorc, he comes off as less snarky and disrespectful and all-around nicer, with this characterization consistently carrying over into the next couple of game. It's just that in those cases, the difference from the original games simply doesn't stand out as much since his personality already softened in the original version of those installments. Overall, Spyro might be a little on the arrogant and overconfident side, but he is pretty much always willing to help those in need and will quickly head off to save the day without any fear or hesitation.
