- “Have you seen my sister Greta? She's ugly with pigtails...”
Greta is one of the two child secret agents, debuting in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!, first seen along with her twin brother, Handel, in the desert world, Scorch. She later appeared in Spyro: Year of the Dragon, at the Fireworks Factory.
Greta is obviously the brains of the duo, although she has trouble pronouncing Ls and Rs, unlike her brother (in Spyro 2; in Spyro 3, he has trouble with it too). She appears to have a sibling rivalry with Handel, as several dialogue snippets in Scorch have the two insulting each other.
Greta is seen displaying amazing feats of physical ability, including the ability to defeat many enemies just like Spyro. She has also been seen making enormous leaps, and appears to be adept in martial arts, as seen in Fireworks Factory. Her most unusual ability is to perform a powerful spell with Handel. The spell is powerful enough to kick several enemies out of the castle in Scorch.
Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!
Greta's assignment, along with Handel's, was to blow up the enemy castle in Scorch and acquire the flag as proof their mission was completed. The reason why this mission was delayed is because Handel fell for a trap which used a lollipop as bait and Greta had to temporarily continue on without him. Spyro had to help the twins in order to receive the Talisman, which was the Emerald Scarab, that Greta stole from one of the guards. After Spyro exited Scorch with the Talisman in hand, the scene is shown where Greta and Handel were surrounded by the castle guards. The two held each other's hands, and when their hands connected, their eyes turned piercing red, and they held orbs of yellow light in their hands. Then, they threw them at the guards, knocking them out.
It was revealed in the epilogue of the original game that Agent Zero took Handel and Greta under his wing as his new recruits.
Spyro: Year of the Dragon
Greta was seen again at the Fireworks Factory, in which she had to steal the plans for the rocket, of which the Sorceress took. After Spyro helped her launch the rocket, Greta gave him a dragon egg, telling him if he finds Handel that she's helping building a rocket, then headed back to Evening Lake, where she, along with Bentley, Princess Ami, Crazy Ed and Eugene, helped prepare a rocket that would take Spyro and Sparx to Midnight Mountain (and Scorch's Pit).
- Her name is a play on "Gretel" from the fairy tale story, Hansel & Gretel.
- Sometimes, a float in the Tunnel of Love in Dragon Shores will show the twins together. Greta is also one of the possible partners Spyro may emerge from the ride with.
- Though Handel and Greta both claim to be 'secret agents', it is unknown who they are working for and for what purpose. They may work for Agent Zero as they are seen with him.
- Another theory is that they work for some sort of unknown government, which would explain the scene of the second game being held in an area similar to the Middle East, which just started having conflicts with the American government at the time of the game's release.
- Her speech is similar to Elmer Fudd's from the Looney Tunes.
- In the Reignited Version, her hairstyle is similar to Cindy Vortex from the Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius series.
