“Crush, kill it! KILL IT!”
    —Ripto, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!

Crush (クラッシュ in Japanese) is one of Ripto's minions, the other being Gulp, and the more dim-witted of Ripto's minions. Along with his master, Crush first appeared in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!.


Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!

Crush first fought against Spyro underneath Summer Forest Castle, but eventually the roof fell in on top of him and knocked him out. In the epilogue of the original game, Crush began studying under the teachings of the Professor to pursue higher learning.

Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly

Crush appeared again, having rejoined Ripto's side in helping him capture the Dragonflies. When Crush explained to Ripto a problem regarding his scepter, both he and Gulp were then blasted away when Ripto became enraged by the fact that the dragonflies were scattered across the Dragon Realms. In this game, Crush is able to speak more fluently and is more observant of situations surrounding his boss, to the opposite of his first appearance he seems to be the more intelligent minion (which makes sense as the epilogue of Ripto's Rage! showed that he pursued higher learning).

Spyro 2: Season of Flame

Crush also appeared as the first boss in Season of Flame.

Spyro Orange: The Cortex Conspiracy

In The Cortex Conspiracy, Crush was the second boss alongside Gulp.




  • He is the first boss in the Spyro the Dragon series to have a Health Bar.
  • Ironically, Crush gets defeated in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! by getting crushed by rocks.
  • Crush's club is actually a chicken leg. In Crush's Dungeon, if Spyro does not move (at the start of entering battle, only) for too long, Crush will start eating off the club.
  • Both he and Gulp are capable of speech, as shown in multiple games when they are not with Ripto, and only keep quiet during Ripto's presence, as shown when they dared to speak in front of him they got punished.
