Spyro head

Spyro using Headbash

The Headbash ability enables Spyro to break certain rocks and special gem containers. The headbash is achieved by leaping into the air and then pressing the triangle button. Spyro will execute a forward somersault and launch himself downwards, horns first. Spyro can also drop into a Headbash from a glide by hitting triangle twice—first to Hover, then to Headbash.

The Headbash was first introduced in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!. To get it at the near end of the game, Spyro needs to pay Moneybags a thousand gems in Winter Tundra.

Horn Smash

In Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly, the Headbash ability is renamed the Horn Smash.

Horn Dive

In Spyro: A Hero's Tail, Spyro gains a move called the Horn Dive by talking to Elder Tomas. The move functions and moves exactly the same as the Headbash ability. Spyro needs to use the move in order to destroy the Dark Gems and break unbreakable steel chests.

Spyro's Earth Pound

In Skylanders, Spyro has the ability to use an Earth Pound. This attack is performed by flying into the air and then crashing down head first.

Series 2 Spyro has a special Wow Pow ability that allows him to perform a powerful Earth Pound while spewing fireballs.
