Bugbot Factory is the fourth and final Sparx Realm in Spyro: Year of the Dragon and in the Reignited Trilogy remaster of the third game. It can be accessed in the Midnight Mountain homeworld after defeating the Sorceress and completing the other Sparx Realms.
The Sorceress initially built this factory to create robotic creatures intended to eliminate Sparx, but after her initial defeat, they were instead programmed to defend an egg that was hidden here. After seeing Sparx defeat enemies in other realms, Zoe has confidence that these robotic insects won't be of any match for him.
Like the previous levels, Sparx has to fight his way through the robot insects, open force fields, and confront a boss at the end that has the egg. The Ladybeetles are just like any small enemy; one shot should take care of them. The blue beetles have the force field keys, and Sparx will have to charge into them to get the keys. The green bugs are like the Eels from Starfish Reef, however, they move much faster and spit fire often.
The boss of this realm is the Metapede. Defeating it will gain Sparx two abilities:
- Break open treasure chests and vases if they're near Spyro (except large and locked chests).
- Warp to any previously completed level in the Atlas. (In Spyro Reignited Trilogy, that is only reminded as this was already unlocked since the start of the game.)
- Shut down the Factory (Annabelle): Defeat the Metapede to receive this egg.
- This level, along with the other Sparx Realms, shares its theme music with the title theme.
