Basil the Explorer is a human character found in Mystic Marsh in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!. He'll give you an orb once you have collected four spark plugs for his jeep, which were stolen by Kangaroo Thieves.

In the original epilogue for Spyro 2, Basil compiled a catalog "Basil the Explorer's "Faunus Mortas" Extinct Creatures of Avalar", showcasing different designs of creatures not found in the game.

Trivia

  • Basil is one of the few characters in the entire Classic series who is human.
  • He has the same character model and voice as the Mayor in Metro Speedway (found in a hidden area behind a waterfall) who challenges Spyro to help Hunter catch cat burglars.
