“Ah, Spyro, darling, you need to learn as much as you can in order to help you in your quest to find Red!”

Magnus is a Dragon Elder in Spyro: A Hero's Tail, and reappears later in Spyro: Shadow Legacy. He appears rather camp.


Spyro: A Hero's Tail

Magnus resided in the Crocovile Swamp, where he taught Spyro how to pole spin.

In the secret ending, he was shown watching TV with the other elders. He mistook Astor's insult as an offer for a sandwich, causing the green Dragon Elder to call him a deaf coot. He still thought he was getting a sandwich when Tomas and Titan agreed to turn the TV off, by saying he wanted bologna on his.

Spyro: Shadow Legacy

Magnus taught Spyro Shield and Critical Hits moves after he was saved by Spyro from the Shadow Realm.



  • Both Magnus and Mrs. Shoutfire share a similar character design, with Mrs. Shoutfire being thicker than Magnus.
