The Alligators charge towards Spyro, trying to chomp him. Spyro can defeat them by either charging into them or flaming them. If they see a lobster, they will charge towards it and chomp on it, releasing a butterfly.
They appear to be the most basic enemy in the swamp. When observed from a distance, Gardener Rhynocs can be seen trying to shoot projectiles at them; the gators make a grunting noise when hit. If two gators are next to each other, they will pursue and try to bite each other.
- Spooky Swamp: Throughout level
- The grunting noise made by the Alligators is the same sound as the Cupids from Spyro the Dragon.
- During the mini-boss fight against Sleepyhead, if Spyro charges or flames the Alligators as soon as they are beginning to appear by Sleepyhead's magic summoning attack, a comical glitch will cause the Alligators to appear smaller in size while dying. A similar glitch also happens with the parrots found in Sgt. James Byrd's side quest segment from the Molten Crater world.
