Trivia

  • Tara appears to be a parody of Lara Croft of the Tomb Raider franchise. Many fans even call her Tara Kroft.
    • Tara's modeler, Jacob Ovrick, refers to Tara as "Tara Croft".
    • Like the Spyro series, the Tomb Raider series has been rebooted twice, with the newest reboot game released in March 2013.
    • When Tara talks, she performs the same exact body movements as Bianca, likely because they both have the same character model.
    • Like Lara, Tara also has an English accent.
  • In the original game, Gus's character model is recycled from the Gemcutters characters from Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!.
