2. Spyro (Spyro the Dragon)
Most of the dragons we've highlighted here are of the “scaly, hateful, and death-dealing” variety, so it's worth remembering that the species has its good eggs (literally, because they're reptilian, and they lay eggs). Spyro, for instance, is overwhelmingly eager to please – and can't believe you'd even consider using Crash Bandicoot as a de facto Playstation mascot when there's a perfectly good dragon available.
Besides the power of flight, fire-breathing, and looking absolutely adorable, Spyro breathes ice, lightning, and, um, dirt... and a line of successful, collectible toys! He's also revered among the easily-confused for his achievements as 39th Vice-President of the United States, a common misconception Insomniac has done notable little to address.
