Spyro the Dragon Fandom (Toxic Portion)
Good franchise, Bad Fanbase besides Spyro can breathe fire at them.
Type: Video Game Fandoms

Spyro the Dragon is a series of platform video games which feature the protagonist Spyro the Dragon. Since the series' introduction in 1998 with the PlayStation game Spyro the Dragon, there have been numerous sequels and spin-offs. Spyro the Dragon has quite a good fandom on the outside, but in recent years, the majority of its fans have done some very HORRENDOUS things. This article will only be focusing about the vocal portion of the fandom.

Why It's Toxic

  1. They keep praising the original trilogy nonstop (this applies to the Reignited fandom too but with the remasters).
    • In fact, most of the fans are blind to the original trilogy and not give newer games a chance.
    • Reignited fanboys praise the remasters so much that they hate on the original trilogy to the point of attacking fans for using the Classic Skin and playing with the original music in the remaster despite the fact both are optional
  2. Many hate the remasters for "replacing" Cynder with Elora.
  3. Just like the Crash Bandicoot Fandom they will never stop nitpicking about every small thing in the remastered trilogy.
    • When the game was revealed, many fans went crazy because of very small changes like Spyro's shade of purple and one of the dragon characters wearing a hat.
    • They hate the skeleton dance from the remastered second game just because it does the floss.
  4. Some are part of the Skylanders Hatedom.
    1. They all think that Skylanders ruined the characters of Spyro and Cynder when yet they're more likely guests and more likely alternate versions of said characters.
      • They also refuse to accept that Skylanders aren't Spyro games, but rather their own games.
  5. Some tend to make nasty fanart, mostly out of Cynder and Elora.
  6. Starts flamewars with the Crash Bandicoot Fandom.
  7. Spyro fantards cannot handle you criticizing the original and remastered trilogy, if you dare have an opinion then they will attack you for it, much like the Sonic fandom, they are not very smart.
    • Most Spyro fans don't actually even know why the original/remaster is better than the other, thinking is not their strongest ability.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Some fans are at least sane about the fact that Spyro and Cynder are alternate universe counterparts of the originals.
  2. Not all fans are like this.
  3. Any negative comments towards Sanzaru Games over their handling on Year of the Dragon is deserved because of their refusal to make a fifth Sly Cooper game following the very controversial sad ending of Thieves in Time.
  4. Some of them are Crash Bandicoot fans too, specially after Spyro, Hunter and Gnasty Gnorc were added to Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled as well as a track based on Spyro's world.

But one of my friends drew clean (meaning worksafe) Rule63 Spyro fan art that wasn't even fetishistic. Is that still a bad thing?
