Ripto is a recurring antagonist in the Spyro franchise. He is a dinosaurian sorcerer who serves as Spyro's archenemy in most of the game installments in the series. He is often accompanied by his two most loyal minions, Crush and Gulp.

General information[edit]


Ripto is a grumpy and short, orange sorcerer with a hatred toward dragons.


Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage![edit]

In Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!, Ripto's first appearance, Hunter accidentally brings him into Avalar through a portal. Ripto announces that he will take over Avalar because there are no dragons. Ripto starts out carrying a powerful magical staff, but loses it early when Gulp swallows it by mistake. Every time Spyro first enters a realm, Ripto takes over its castle and replaces the flags with ones showing his face.

Ripto has since remained relatively defenseless for most of Spyro's adventure. He only regains his true strength late into the adventure after he steals Avalar's greatest gateway crystal to create a new magic staff for himself. At Winter Tundra, Spyro manages to enter Ripto's Arena, where he engages in the final battle against Ripto. Spyro manages to defeat Ripto using his superflame-superfly powerup.

Spyro: Year of the Dragon[edit]

In the original epilogue, Ripto and Gnasty Gnorc hold a summit to discuss the "Spyro Problem".

Ripto's symbol from Ripto's Rage! is presented on the underside of Spyro's turbo-snowboard. There is also a skateboarding trick, the Raging Ripto, which is named after Ripto.

Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly[edit]

In Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly, Ripto makes his third appearance of being the main antagonist. He uses a spell to scatter the dragonflies around the Dragon Realms to render the baby dragons defenseless. Throughout Spyro's adventure, Ripto has his own group of minions, the Riptocs. Spyro managed to once again defeat Ripto, who then escaped through a portal.

Spyro 2: Season of Flame[edit]

Ripto returns as the main villain of Spyro 2: Season of Flame. In the game, Ripto hired the Rhynocs to invade the Dragon Realms and steal every firefly, which are the source for the dragons' fire breath.
