This article is about the swirling columns of wind seen in the Original series. You may be looking for the Skylander from the Skylanders series.

Whirlwinds appear as swirling columns of sparks/magic in the original Spyro series that, when stepped into, will cause Spyro to travel upward, usually allowing Spyro to reach a new area that he couldn't without the whirlwind. Their appearance has changed over time.

Appearances

Spyro the Dragon

The original whirlwind design consisted of only blue sparkles swirling around and upwards towards where Spyro needed to go. There were also special whirlwinds in Lofty Castle that were created by the fairies who were locked in cages. The sparkles for these whirlwinds were rainbow colored. All whirlwinds make a slight tinkling noise.

Ripto's Rage!, Year of the Dragon, and Enter the Dragonfly

Whirlwinds got an update in these games. The blue sparkles are still a part of them, but now there are small streams of light that go straight up along with the swirling sparkles. Also, some whirlwinds could be unlocked after performing a certain task, such as completing a realm (like Cloud Spires). This was very evident in Year of the Dragon, since many of the realm designs placed the end within a reachable distance from the beginning with a whirlwind to access it.

A Hero's Tail

The whirlwinds in this game include sparkles and more of a swirling mist around them, and they also make more of a whooshing noise.
