1-Up Chests are a special kind of container that only appear in Spyro the Dragon. They resemble the purple scales that belong to Spyro.
1-Up Chests can be found in various realms and homeworlds, the first one being found in the hedge maze near Dark Hollow. Each time the chest opens itself, a pair of eyes can be seen looking around before the chest closes shut again, hinting that a creature may reside inside. If broken open, the 1-Up Chests reveal a silver dragon statue inside, which will grant Spyro an extra life if collected.
- 1-Up Chests are later replaced with butterflies in the future installments of Spyro the Dragon games.
- In the late demo, the 1-Ups inside the chests are golden, but in the final game they are silver.
