Spyro the Dragon is a title character and the protagonist of the Spyro the Dragon, Legend of Spyro, and Skylanders series.
First introduced in the 1998 video game Spyro the Dragon, Spyro is a young, energetic, purple dragon with orange medium-sized wings, large, curved horns, a spiral-shaped spike on the tip of his tail, and spines resembling a mohawk. He is noticeably smaller than most other dragons portrayed in the series; a characteristic that aids him in the first game in the series. In the original series most dragons are depicted as bipedal, however Spyro is depicted as quadrupedal.
Kieio the Green Dragon was based off Spyro the Dragon.
