Defeat The First Boss

To defeat the first boss, use Cynder's siren scream and blast him with it, and his mask that he is wearing will fall off then you can start hitting him and do some damage.

Beating Malefor, The Dark Master

Final level

For this battle, Spyro and Cynder should be wearing the Gold or Dark armor set (I prefer the Dark armor set because the fury breath is almost the only thing that can hurt Malefor). In the 1st fight, fly close to Malefor and use Cynder`s fury breath (accessed by pressing the D-pad in any direction twice) until he makes an angry grunt while being forced backwards. Make sure you dodge his fire. Then he'll charge to the other end of the portal. Continue this tactic until he's beaten. In the 2nd fight, you'll be fighting Malefor while the world is ending. Do the same thing but this time, you'll be dodging ice! Then, press the buttons on the screen. Do the same in the 3rd fight and Malefor is dead!

How To Defeat Malafor

Final Boss

Part one: Avoid all the fireballs by flying to one side then pressing L1 to dodge them completely. If you don't press L1 they will home you and hit you hard. Then, use Cynder's fear ability to get close to him and shoot not the screams but the little fearballs until he lets out a yell and gives you health gems. If you are ever to run out of mana, melee him after his fireballs and it will give you mana. Repeat until the cutscene.

Part Two: You want to use Spyro's Ice for this. After he shoots out the dark purple balls, go up to him and use your ice twister until he yells and you get health. Repeat same as before if you run out of mana and until it goes to the cutscene.

Part Three: You want to melee the purple shield until your fury bar is full, then use your fury untilyou get his health down to zero and then you have to pressthe buttons to avoid his attacks. At the end of his attacks continously press the button it says and you will hit him hard. That's your last fight of the whole Spyro Trilogy.

My Comments: Watch and listen to the cutscene at the end very carefully and right before you see Spyro sacrifice himself to save the world you will hear Cynder say to him " I love you." I was disappointed to play the whole game and have Spyro AND Ignitus die, I've played all the Spyro games and I really really hope they come out with more :)
