- "This big robot is all charged up to meet you. Attacking the power poles should disrupt his power supply."
Metalhead (アイアン・ヘッド, Iron Head in Japanese) is a giant robot who is the boss of the Beast Makers world.
Metalhead was created by Gnasty Gnorc after his search for recruits to destroy Spyro after he froze all the dragons in crystal. He was charged up by the small power poles that are his power supply so he could move which forced him to stay inside his fortress or else he couldn't charge. Spyro destroyed all of Metalhead's power poles and defeated him.
Metalhead is encountered in the level, Metalhead. He fights Spyro in two large chambers surrounded by swamp water and filled with pylons that power Metalhead. Metalhead is too large for a charge attack and made of metal so a flame attack doesn't work. The only way to attack Metalhead is to attack the pylons supplying him with power.
Metalhead will start shooting rays out of his arm or by throwing ape-like monsters (Armored Banana Boys and Strongarms) at Spyro, and when he does, make sure you're standing in front of one the pylons. Get out of the way before the attack hits you, and the monster/ray will plunge into the pylon and destroy it, Spyro can also destroy the pylons himself by using his charge, unless they are being used at the time in which case Spyro will just be electrocuted. After destroying all of the pylons in both rooms, Metalhead will be defeated.
- Gems: 500
- Dragons: 1
Most of the Gems are obvious and are right in front of you as you travel to the fort entrance and are on the platforms where the Bananaboys and Strongarms are thrown from by Metalhead, at the final, outside "Arena" after you defeat Metalhead, there is a stairway on your left-hand side of the door which you came from which has a key-chest on the top of the staircase, but the key isn't very easy to find so, go to the start of the level then go to the Swamp-water river then press the triangle button to look down then there should be a ledge/platform with a busted gate, jump down and go through the gate, look around and the key should be around there somewhere, and after you have found it then look for a whirlwind (DON'T go up the whirlwind until you are ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE that the key is not there) then you should be able to glide to the Gem-crates on the tower...afterwards, go back to the final arena where you faced Metalhead and go back up the staircase which i told you about at the start then go and unlock the chest.
If you followed it all then you should have all gems in the level.
