There’s no doubt that Spyro is the coolest dragon of all time!

But our purple hero is not the only dragon in the Spyro the Dragon video game series. What about the other dragon names?

Today, I’m listing all dragon names in Spyro the Dragon, including their meanings!

All dragon names in Spyro the Dragon (including meanings)

In Spyro the Dragon (the first Spyro game), Gnasty Gnorc has turned all dragons except Spyro into crystal statues. It’s up to Spyro to save them.

Each rescued dragon provides Spyro with a piece of advice. And those who don’t, simply say: “Thank you for releasing me.” Ah, the nostalgia!

Here are the names of all 80 rescued dragons in Spyro the Dragon (Spyro 1). And not just the names; I’ve included their meanings and genders too!

I’ve classified the dragons by their home worlds and levels.

Artisans dragon names

Female dragon names in Spyro the Dragon

I think it’s a bit weird all the dragons in Spyro the Dragon (Spyro 1) are male. Where are all the female dragons?

At least in Spyro 3, both male and female dragons hatch from the rescued eggs. But adult female dragons are not shown in the classic Spyro trilogy.

However, a few young and adult female dragon characters appeared in the Spyro games following the original trilogy.

In Spyro: A Hero’s Tail, there’s Ember, a young pink female dragon who has a crush on Spyro.

Spyro: Shadow Legacy introduced a female Dragon Elder, Cho Lei.

Cynder is a black female dragon in The Legend of Spyro series. She became Spyro’s love interest.

That was a lot of names, but we made it to the end! There you go; we’ve listed all dragon names in Spyro the Dragon (Spyro 1) and Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon.
