The Shadow Amplifiers were machines that were created by the Sorcerer in Spyro: Shadow Legacy. Their purpose was to absorb magic and trap people in the Shadow Realm.

One Amplifier was in the Dragon Realms, guarded by the Ice Minion, while the other was in Avalar, guarded by the Fire Minion. Both Shadow Minions were defeated by Spyro, who proceeded to battle the Sorcerer inside a third, more powerful Shadow Amplifier that could trap the inhabitants of the world in the Shadow realm permanently.
