What's the origin of darkSpyro's name? [CLOSED]

I initially assumed it was named after, you know, Dark Spyro. But then I found out that the site's been called darkSpyro since well before Dark Spyro was introduced into the Spyro series, and that the existence of Dark Spyro was just a coincidence.


So where did the name darkSpyro come from, then?

Pretty much what Brawler said. If you look hard enough here you can find other sites Dark worked on with similar names, such as darkGTA and darkFAQs.

Have you ever gone on a website where you've entered a username and it's said "that username is taken, but the same username with numbers on the end is available!" and then you selected that username? Dark52.

Because he made darkSpyro when he was a child and realises now that it's a dumb name and probably regrets it, but the website is too big to change it now!

Well, I say a "child", he was in his teens. He wasn't an adult, strictly speaking.

He could always just change it to "Dark Spyro" and pretend he's just a really big fan of Spyro's dark form.

But that would be a lie, because who actually is a fan of Dark Spyro?

But that's fanon. Saying you like a character because of the fandom doesn't mean you like that character, it means you like that fanon interpretation.

Because anything black in the fandom is automatically better than the original.

Spyro's dark form didn't exist when dark52 made this website, so it wasn't based off that.

It's an alternate form of Spyro in which he gets dark powers. It was introduced in Legend of Spyro but later incorporated into Skylanders.

Skylanders version: http://spyro.wikia.com/wiki/Dark_Spyro_(Skylanders)
