Hero Grublins[1] are a type of Grublin that wield shields in The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon. According to Grublin general rank and file units, Grublins that have survived enough battles earn the rank of "Hero", which supposedly grant them an increase in size and/or strength.[1]

Hero Grublins mostly serve as leaders of lesser Grublin groups. They sometimes launch dark energy at Spyro and Cynder if they are too close, and their shield must be destroyed in order to attack them directly. The Hero Grublin's rank is that of the Ape Leaders from Spyro's previous two adventures.
