Spyro using Supercharge

A Supercharge was a part of Spyro's special moves in the original Spyro series. It is basically an improved version of the basic charge attack, only it enables Spyro to run faster and be able to jump higher if he runs off certain platforms.

In both Spyro the Dragon and Spyro: Year of the Dragon, Spyro performs the Supercharge by charging across special ramps that show glowing arrows. In Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!, Spyro performs the Supercharge by running through a Supercharge Power Gate. In Spyro: A Hero's Tail, Spyro glows yellow when he steps into the Supercharge gadget instead of running his legs in circular motion while charging fast.

Supercharge can be needed to:

  • Defeat large enemies wearing armor
  • Break open locked chests or metal chests
  • Break open certain doors
  • Catch up with thieves
  • Travel long distances when going off the end of a ramp
  • Defeat metalback spiders

Trivia

  • On the back of the Greatest Hits case of Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!, Spyro is seen performing the Supercharge in Scorch. However, there is no point in the stage where Spyro is able to obtain the Supercharge power up.
  • In the original Spyro trilogy, the faster you charge, the smoke behind Spyro changes from normal to yellow, to orange, and finally red.
  • In early demos for the first Spyro game, the Supercharge is referred to as the "Superdash."
