2Spyro the Dragon
Everyone’s favourite purple dragon is none other than Spyro. Spyro is the protagonist of the 3D platforming game series titled, appropriately, Spyro the Dragon. And, unlike other games on this list, you actually get to control Spyro. He’s perhaps the least threatening-looking dragon you’ll come across, but that doesn’t mean you’ll love him any less.
In the Spyro series, our little purple hero attempts to save his friends from the evil Gnasty Gnorc. Players are able to use his dash, fire breath and gliding abilities to take out enemies and traverse the world, collecting treasure and freeing his imprisoned friends. If you’ve always wanted to embody a dragon, Spyro is adventurous, courageous and just about the cutest little dragon around.
