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.

In Spyro the Dragon, certain Fairies grant Spyro superflame when they kiss him.


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.

Original series

Spyro the Dragon

The Save Fairy.

Fairies made their first appearance, helping Spyro by:

Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!

Zoe was introduced. Other fairies were seen when they helped her scatter the Orbs around Avalar from Ripto.

Spyro: Year of the Dragon

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.

Spyro: Season of Ice

In this game, the main focus is all on the Fairies and the Fairy Realms. Here, Grendor has frozen all the fairies, and Spyro must unfreeze them.

Each fairy's in-game sprite colours are based off the four seasons (Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer).

Spyro: A Hero's Tail

Other fairies make their appearance in A Hero's Tail, including Zoe. The fairies appeared after Spyro defeats a boss and grants him an elemental power: Electricity, Water, and Ice.

Trina serves as the tutorial fairy in the game.

Spyro: Shadow Legacy

Fairies, including Zoe, live in the Tree Tops somewhere in Avalar.

Skylanders series

Fairies make an appearance in Skylanders seriesThey 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.

One notable fairy, Persephone, upgrades your Skylanders' abilities for gold. 



  • 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.
