The Burned Lands is a large, desolate landscape that surrounded the Dragon Temple in The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon. It is where Spyro and Cynder lost Ignitus to the dark power of the Belt of Fire when they tried to cross it. The Burned Lands is also an ambush area for enemies Spyro and Cynder have faced before, as they attempt to stop the two dragons from reaching Malefor.


Before the events of The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon, the area surrounding the Dragon Temple was ravaged into a fiery wasteland dotted with mini volcanoes and streamed with lava when Malefor reclaimed the temple.

After failing to stop the Destroyer, Ignitus escorted Spyro and Cynder to the Belt of Fire to confront Malefor. When they attempted to cross through it, the dark power of the Belt of Fire began to overwhelm Ignitus' barrier that protected them from the heat. As he struggled to keep the barrier around them up, Ignitus apologized to both Spyro and Cynder for everything that had happened to them by his failures. Sacrificing himself, he threw Spyro and Cynder through the fire; his death having a deep, almost devastating impact on Spyro. Saddened by his mentor's fate, Spyro continued on his journey to Malefor's Lair along with Cynder, who comforted him that he wasn't alone.
