Gnorc Balloonists are a floating variety of Gnorc Sentries that appear in Lofty Castle. They are found all over the level, floating up and down near the edges of bottomless pits. If Spyro gets too close, they try to hit him with their shield. The only way to defeat them is to flame the balloons they are holding, causing them to fall. The balloon can only be flamed when the Gnorc bobs down, leaving the balloon level with Spyro.
- The Balloon-a-rang Gnorcs from Cloudy Domain in Spyro: A Hero's Tail seem to be based on Balloon Gnorcs.
