Armored Turtles[1] are turtle enemies in Spyro the Dragon, where they are native to Dream Weavers. They only appear in Dark Passage. If there is a Lamp Fool nearby, don't let him blow out his lamp or the Armored Turtle will become bigger and invincible.

In their weaker form, they are only vulnerable to charging. The Armored Turtles can spit fire balls at Spyro, and they can do it in the weaker form and stronger form. Hastily charging the weaker form can result in damage, as it almost immediately launches its fireball as you get close. Jumping and tapping the charge button should remedy this.
