Spyro hails from a rare line of magical purple dragons that come from a faraway land few have ever traveled. It's been said that the Scrolls of the Ancients mention Spyro prominently -- the old Portal Masters having chronicled his many exciting adventures and heroic deeds. Finally, it was Master Eon himself who reached out and invited him to join the Skylanders. Now calling Skylands his home, he remains one of its most valued protectors, with evil facing a new enemy -- and the Skylanders gaining a valued ally.
Elite Spyro was released with the first year of Eon's Elite characters which came out with the Trap Team game. He is exclusive to GameStop.
Eon's Elite characters sit on a gold base with a clear uncolored bottom as they do not belong to any one game. In the Trap Team game and each game after Trap Team, the Eon's Elite characters will be three times stronger than the original character. In older games they will still work but they will act just like the original character did.
Elite Spyro has six other variants: Spyro (Spyro's Adventure), Dark Spyro (Spyro’s Adventure), Legendary Spyro (Spyro’s Adventure), Spyro Series 2 (Giants), Mega Ram Spyro (Swap Force), and Dark Mega Ram Spyro (Swap Force). With the Trap Team game, Spyro got a mini version of himself called Spry.
