“I hate those bugs. When I become big and strong, like you, I'll squash 'em all!”
“Until then, remember that super charge makes you invincible.”

Metalback Spiders (also known as Bugs) are enemies that are appeared only in original Spyro the Dragon, in the realm High Caves. They can be defeated only by using a Supercharge or a Superflame.


Avoid at all costs, run away from them and jump onto any higher or lower ground you can find to get a break and see where to run next. Once you get either a superflame or supercharge powerup, they can be defeated just as easily as every other enemy.


  • Many Spyro fans consider this enemy the scariest enemy in the entire series.
  • These enemies resemble stag beetles more than spiders.
