Attack of the Golem is the fifth level in The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon. Spyro and Cynder fight their way through the City of Warfang to confront the Earth Golem that is in the process of destroying it.


Spyro and Cynder make their way through the dragon city of Warfang to help fight off the Golem. The Guardians, Cyril and Volteer, managed to aid the two young dragons and keep them out of harm's way. In the struggle, Cyril was knocked out of the sky by the Golem's thrashing tail, but is expected to recover. When the Golem started making its way to the upper part of the city where the inhabitants were taking shelter in, Spyro and Cynder couldn't allow the beast to go any further and engaged the Golem in battle. During the fight, Terrador attempted to help Spyro and Cynder, but the Golem hits the Guardian with a blast of fire, rendering him unconscious.

Shortly after destroying Golem's bottom jaw, Ignitus swoops in and breathes a blast of flames on the Golem's head, showing Spyro and Cynder a small bump on the Golem's head and indicating that the main dark crystal that controls the monster is hidden underneath. Despite the Golem's attempts to crush them, Spyro and Cynder tore the bump off and destroyed the crystal inside. With the dark crystal destroyed, the Golem died as it fell off the building and hit the ground below.

Spyro and Cynder are finally reunited with the Guardians after the battle. Later that night, the Dark Master, Malefor, sent them a message through a dark crystal that he had revived the Destroyer, an ancient creature whose only purpose was to renew the world by bringing about its destruction. When it completed its circle around the world, known as the Belt of Fire, everything as they knew it would end. Unable to catch the creature if they fly after it, Ignitus hatched the plan by going underground to intercept the creature before Malefor could realize the City was unguarded.
