- "A wise dragon once told me 'Aim high in life but watch out for flying boxes.'"
Jacques ( アメージング・ボックス, Amazing Box in Japanese) was the penultimate boss in the original, Spyro the Dragon game. He resided in Dream Weavers in a nightmarish volcanic landscape that was populated by lava creatures and was fought on a series of platforms that levitated above a volcanic crater.
Jacques mostly threw boxes at Spyro throughout the battle. As Spyro chased him, Jacques moved from one platform to the next until he reached and stood on a dark pink box, where he'd stay put and continue throwing boxes. If Spyro flamed him, he moved quickly to the next dark pink box (there were 3 in total) and repeated the same process. Once Jacques was flamed on the last pink box, he disappeared and left 4 Purple Gems .
- "Jacques" is the French spelling of "Jack," appropriate as he is a Jack-in-the-box.
- Jacques was similar to other Jack-in-the-Box themed video game bosses, such as Mad Jack in Donkey Kong 64.
