Ripto's Size [CLOSED]
Fireball Emerald Sparx Gems: 3134
#1 Posted: 17:39:39 27/07/2010 | Topic Creator
When I'm fighting Ripto, I notice that he is actually taller than Spyro. Ripto is supposed to be short, but he looks like the size of Moneybags. And in Year of the Dragon, in the prolouge, Ripto looks as tall as Gnasty! What's up with that?

He is short if you compare him to his companions(Crush and Gulp). But I agree, he isn't very short compared to other characters in the game. I've noticed it earlier, but not put much thought into it.
It was when I used double jump to get to where Ripto is in Gulp's Overlook that I could see just how much taller he is than Spyro O.o

Heh-heh... But actually when you go up to him in Gulp's Overlook he's alot bigger than he is when you fight him! The same goes for Crush's Dungeon.

I find it sort of ironic that the smartest enemy is pint-sized while his hench-men are huge.

I mean the height is fine, but being as tall as Gnasty Gnorc is way too far.

If it was orange juice, then why was it spraying all over the place. And question: If you noticed, when Metal Gulp is defeated, Hunter crashes into the lava. How did that happen?

Ripto could have used his magic to heal himself.

I don't know... Oh, and the answer as to why Hunter crashes into the lava is because a chunk of Metal Gulp collides with him, sending him smacking against the wall and falling into the lava. That's another question!! How does HUNTER survive the lava too?!?

Yep, you've got that right! So obviously the lava wasn't as 'deadly' as everyone thought it was if both Ripto and Hunter survived it... smilie

Ripto and Hunter survived lava, but the Sorceress didn't?

The first time she did, but the second she didn't.

Well, the lava that the Sorceress fell into the second time was purple... I don't see how that would matter, but...

#25 Posted: 20:26:24 29/07/2010
The lava that sorceress fell the 2nd time was purpe lava from the eaths core so it was deadlier! a least thats what i think!

I loved the hypocritical humour of Spyro calling Ripto 'shorty'. I guess he's just small for a Riptoc, because he can get much bigger when goaded with the right backfire spell.

Or he's possibly referring to Ripto's... Ahem... JEWELS. That'd explain why Ripto's so mad at Spyro smilie

*Ahem* Nah, it's probably relative to his species, because if it was your idea, Spyro wouldn't be able to talk.

Ripto is a rare once in ten Generations Red Lizard. He is special because he is red and has a nice cloak, so he can chaneg his size. smilie

JK, but thats how the "Purple Dragon is Special" Theory sounds to me.
Interesting though...

Honestly, with these new 'action figures' of Skylanders, Spyro's turning into Dungeons and Dragons.

No, he was small that way since before he came to Avalar and got the scepter, Doctorwho. The scepter didn't make him that way.

Just like Bowser, he does survive from anything such as falling from his throne in Gulp's Overlook to falling into the lava. But still, he, Hunter and Bowser can survive even worse things. I wonder how Hunter can survive lava? Does this mean Spyro can as well?!? :-O
