Orbs are special items that appeared in the first two Spyro games, Spyro the Dragon and Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!. They later reappeared in the Skylanders series as part of the treasure.

Spyro the Dragon

Orb StD

Orbs are items that are collected after you defeated an enemy you vanquished before. After an enemy is killed once (thieves or bosses too), the enemy will drop a silver orb (sometimes a silver dragon, which give you an extra life; or butterfly if Sparx's health is not gold) in subsequent kills. Collecting twenty of those silver orbs results in earning an extra life. The silver dragons that give you an extra life can also be found inside purple clamshell chests.

Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!

Orbs are energy sources used by Avalarians to power their portals, along with talismans. You receive Orbs from doing random jobs for the people who live in that world, or finding them hidden away somewhere. Although talismans are the first thing Spyro was told to collect, it turned out that orbs are even more important to the story. The Professor can use the Orbs to seal off Ripto. Not only did they break the seal on the castle door (along with other locks across Avalar), they gave Spyro powerful abilities for a limited period of time. Spyro used this to his advantage when facing Ripto. You need a certain amount of Orbs to reach later levels.

With 64 orbs in all, they are the least abundant of the original collectibles, along with, again, talismans.
