“It was built long ago by the Moles in honor of their friendship with the Dragons. Before Malefor, Dragons were quite revered.”
    —Hunter


Warfang, also known as the Dragon City, is a massive city that had been built by the Moles in honor of their friendship with the dragons. It made its debut in The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon. It sports many landmarks including many dragon statues and an extremely powerful cannon on the lamparts in the shape of a dragon head. Despite being a city made for dragons, it is shown to also be populated by the Moles.

The Dragon City is where Spyro and Cynder took part in battling and defending Warfang against Malefor's overwhelming army of Grublins and stopping the Golem. It was nearly decimated by the resulting attacks.

Story

Hunter led Spyro and Cynder through the Forbidden Tunnel, and from there, to the Dragon City of Warfang, a settlement that the Moles crafted in honor of their friendship with the Dragons, before Malefor caused the Dragon race to be feared. As soon as they arrived, the City was under attack. Hunter became separated from Spyro and Cynder, and they were forced to go their separate ways. After putting out a building fire and rescuing a group of Moles, the city came under a fierce assault from outside the walls. Spyro and Cynder helped defend the City atop the ramparts, before the gates were breached by a Troll. Once the Troll was defeated and the city gates were sealed shut, the army of Grublins retreated, despite having an advantage against the citizens of Warfang by large numbers. It was then revealed that they were allowing Golem from the Catacombs to attack the city. During its rampage, the monstrosity reformed its missing arm from city debris. The Guardians, Ignitus, Terrador, Cyril, and Volteer, lead the attack on the Golem, with Cyril and Volteer falling behind to grant Spyro and Cynder time to defeat the creature.

After it was finally killed, the Guardians were able to be reunited with Spyro and Cynder after three long years. Later that night, the Dark Master Malefor sent them an omnious message through a dark crystal: he had revived the Destroyer, an ancient creature whose only purpose was to renew the world by bringing about its destruction. If it completes its circle around the world, known as the Belt of Fire, everything as they knew it would end. Unable to catch the creature if they fly after it, Ignitus concocted the plan by going underground to intercept the Destroyer before Malefor could realize the City was unguarded.

After Spyro reconstructed the world, Warfang was later seen being rebuilt after the destruction of the war and the earth splitting apart.

Trivia

  • The city greatly resembles Minas Tirith from The Lord of the Rings, with the siege on the city having little differences with the movie's version.
  • In the previous two Legend of Spyro installments by Krome Studios, there is no evidence of Warfang anywhere near the Dragon Temple. This is a result of the change in game developers that added Warfang onto the revised map in Dawn of the Dragon, despite being told that it was built long ago.
  • Despite being separated from Hunter by a fallen building structure during the level introduction cutscene, Spyro and Cynder would have been able to fly over the wreckage to reach the cheetah warrior thanks to their upgraded wingspan. Instead, they headed to the opposite direction where they would hear the Moles' cries for help. This is notably one of the many story plotholes in Dawn of the Dragon.
  • In the Nintendo Gamboy Advance version of The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night, the Dragon Guardians were mentioned to have left for the city of "Doxantha" to prepare for the Night of Eternal Darkness. As that version of the game was the only one to contain the canon names of the Celestial Moons, it's possible that Doxantha was Krome Studios's version of Warfang as the four were encountered here.
  • The city's only known line of defense between potential invading armies and the city itself is one lone catapult. It is unknown if there are other catapults along the top of the city walls.
