Crystal Brutes are enemies encountered in The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning. They are made out of crystal with electricity keeping their limbs together. They walk dragging their overgrown crystal arm on the floor. Their attacks are quite vicious, since they bring their long arm off the ground and smash it down on Spyro (causing Spyro to halt and become dizzy), which is dangerous because it gives them a chance to hit you.

Crystal Brutes lurk in the crystal wasteland of Concurrent Skies. They are also found in Celestial Caves on White Isle in The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night, where the colour of the Crystal Brute matches the elemental level it is found on.
