Skill Point notice

Skill Points are hidden bonus objectives Spyro can complete in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. There are 16 Skill Points in Ripto's Rage!/Gateway to Glimmer, and 20 in Year of the Dragon.

The Spyro Reignited Trilogy marks the return of Skill Points after 18 years of absence, Ripto's Rage! and Year of the Dragon retain the same skill points in Spyro Reignited, but as Spyro the Dragon did not originally have Skill Points, it was given 14.

Skill Points usually consist of obscure and often seemingly pointless things like breaking a record, destroying all of a certain creature or item, or jumping/gliding to a specific, hard-to-reach area. Spyro is awarded an extra life for every Skill Point. Once all Skill Points have been completed, an extra page in the Guidebook/Atlas is added, called 'Epilogue', which shows what happens after the events of the game. In the Spyro Reignited Trilogy, the Epilogues were replaced with art galleries for the game.

Prior to Spyro Reignited, Skill Points did not continue on in the series after Year of the Dragon, but they are featured in the Ratchet & Clank and Resistance series, that were also developed by Insomniac Games.
