The Riflemen are a type of Guard that is an enemy encountered in the Scorch realm in Avalar. Whilst the normal guards, they launch towards Spyro with their scimitars, the squat Riflemen aim their musket-like rifle and fire. Unlike the other guards, they have lavender-like color skin; however, they do wear turbans like the other type of guard. They can easily be defeated with a charge or flame. There are ten total of this type of guard in Scorch.
- Two of the riflemen can be seen shooting the snakes in baskets while Spyro is out of their view.
