Fairies are creatures who are frequently seen throughout the original Spyro the Dragon series. They often help out Spyro by saving his progress (most famously Zoe) and performing other various actions.
Fairies can grant magical abilities and their wand zaps serve as checkpoints. However they are vulnerable to dark magic, which acts as radioactivity to Fairies.
Fairies made their first appearance, helping Spyro by:
- Saving his progress - The Save Fairy
- Saving him from steep falls (Only in High Caves) - Rescue Fairies.
- Giving him Superflame powerups by kissing him (As seen in Haunted Towers and High Caves) - Flame Fairies
- Activating Whirlwinds (Only in Lofty Castle) - Whirlwind Fairies
- Pointing Spyro in the right direction (Night Flight, Crystal Flight and Misty Bog) - Pointer Fairies.
In this game, the fairies help Spyro search for the eggs and:
- Zoe will save his progress.
- The Charmed Ridge fairy community will help you along the way to save Princess Ami from the Cat Wizards.
- Princess Ami will give Spyro an egg if he keeps her secret.
- Isabelle will award Sgt. Byrd an egg for helping her.
- A special ice fairy will temporarily grant Spyro the ability to breathe ice in Frozen Altars.
Each fairy's in-game sprite colours are based off the four seasons (Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer).
The fairies, including Zoe, appear in the Fairy Library level.
Trina serves as the tutorial fairy in the game.
Fairies make an appearance in Skylanders series. They had been friends with the Skylanders, possibly because fairies can turn treasure into upgrade magic that gives the Skylanders new abilities, powers, and also fresh breath.
- A Save Fairy might be one of Zoe's friends who removed the Orbs from the Super Portal in Winter Tundra in the Reignited Trilogy.
- In the original Ripto's Rage!, Zoe mistakenly appears twice in said sequence. One of the Zoes were likely meant to be this fairy.
- There don't appear to be any male fairies, since all the fairies shown so far have been female.
