Ok, but seriously, why does everyone want to eat the ****ing Mabu this season?

Zap, Eon didn't commit Genocide. He literally says he sent them to another realm. No killing done.


Loved this season. The finale is fan-friggin-tastic

Pros


I love all the characters, new and old. Great development for most of them, even Bad Breath!

The story choices. Near all of them I think are great. With the exception of Malefor being Cynder's Daddy. Still not a bad relationship between them though.

Expanding on the characters like TfB and VV would NEVER do. Spyro's parents? Kaos' dad? THE SKYLANDERS HAVE FAMILIES? THAT'S SO COOL!

Animation seems to have gotten nicer, moves better too.

NO SPYRO X CYNDER! HUZZAH!!!!

Jokes are GREAT. Oh my God. When the guy Mabu tried to swipe Malefor, I found that so damn clever.

D A R K S P Y R O

Strykore is pretty cool too. Looks like he's Eon's twin brother. Great design.

Cons

Music is bad, like it's composed well, but it's so bad when you hear it. It's clearly done on a computer and sounds awful.

Wish we saw more Skylanders, like, at least 6-7 more would have been great. Same goes for the places in Skylands. Lots of Falling Forest....again.

GOD DAMN IT ACTIVISION WHY DON'T YOU ACTUALLY MAKE THE GAME STORYLINES THIS ENJOYABLE?! *facedesk*

So, yeah, I watched the season. I don't care if it seems like a budget show, I really do like it. And I've pretty much moved on from cartoons, save for this one. I'm not sure what it is, but the show's just fun, even during its more serious moments. Somehow, someway, Eric and co. were able to balance out the ensemble cast with a mere 13 episodes. Everyone got their moment in the sun... except for Wolfgang, who basically had not a damn thing to do the entire season. But I don't really care; I'm not particularly attached to the character.

Of course, I'm a bit disappointed the season basically went with a similar format to season 1 (everyone gets one episode of focus, semi-slice of life stories, but it all comes together in the finale) although there's at least a bit more episode-to-episode continuity. Like with the games, Kaos gets a very strong character arc. But unlike the games, so does Spyro. Hell, even Eon gets one and Chris Diamantopoulos continues to do a perfect job voicing him.

Cynder's absolutely adorkable and this take on Malefor is miles better than what DotD gave us (not that that's a very high bar). He and Strykore are unmistakably Jim Cummings, channeling that usual "evil" voice of his (with a hint of SatAM Dr. Robotnik for Malefor to boot). I'm genuinely curiously to see what these two villains are going to do next season. Especially since it looks like the Doom Raiders were unceremoniously given the boot.

Either way imma just sum up my thoughts *breaths in heavily* AMAZING 10/10 AWESOME BRILLIANT GENIOUS MALEFOR VS SPYRO HAS HAPPENED ONCE AGAIN AND OOOOOOOOH NINJINI WAS GREAT TOO SHES ALWAYS BEEN MY FAVOURITE GIANT AND ACADEMY REMINDED ME WHY I LIKE NINJINI AND OH MAN OH MAN ALOT MORE CY AND BAD BREATH ARE BEING APPRECIATED THATS LOVELY THE FIRE VIPER TALKS AND THAT ACTUALLY WORKS SURPRISINGLY AND THE BUILD UP AND REVEAL OF STRYKORE WAS GREAT AND THE BUILD UP TO SPYRO'S PAST WAS GREAT TOO AND SO MUCH MORE!

Now VV if you don't make an excellent story that tops Superchargers and academy I'm going to be mad. At you. NAAAAAAH WHO AM I KIDDING VV WILL DO GOOD BUT BACK ON TOPIC SPROCKET IS EXCELLENT AND AS ZAP SAID WHEN IN THE HECK DD SHE GET TO BREAK IT DOWN LIKE LUCIO?!

Both Strykore and Malefor. I'll guess the Doom Raiders will sit this one out but I doubt they're gone as villains altogether, they'll probably seek out an artifact or something.

Also, can someone ask Eric what's up with the lack of Hex on Belly of the Beast? Pre-release he told us there was a good reason, but we never even heard the characters mention her, and Cynder and RB are close to her.

The only reason she wasn’t there was because it was supposed to be a 5 pairs of Skylanders and Hex just wouldn’t fit the cast they had already assembled for it.

Yeah, but still salty there wasn't a line like the excuses they had for Bad Breath in S1. I like Split Decision but the entire impact of that episode dissipated faster than mist when Hex only makes cameos for the rest of the season - not even a mention she's training out of classes or something.

Also, fun fact for anyone still watching: the spells in this season are all subtitled, and they're actually normal words in reverse. Going back to read Skull's was an adorable surprise smilie

Please forgive my grave mistake, a friend who didn't give but would always take.


I think they're backwards in S1 as well, but there's no subtitles, so it's impossible to understand the real phrase.

It doesn’t. Both aspects address two specific flaws of JV’s character. E2 was about his control freak nature and It Techs Two is about him being too prideful

It goes back to his issues with feelijg old, but I don't agree with that notion since you never really stop doing that. However, in Belly lf the Beast, he breaks characters to give a 40-part strategy plan, though Spyro stops him and opens the portal early.

Oh! I was thinking Skull was based more on Hex's S2 Wow-Pow. Kind of an obscure character to make real, tbh!

Skull is based on the figure which is why he has the orb, Eric probably wouldn't have the time to upgrade EVERYONE just to see each and every power, just the first few. Actually, on Hex, he probably only saw the first two since she doesn't do anything but make her hands glow a bit e_e

I was actually expecting Skull to have a super form based on Skull Buddy, but I guess that 20 minutes was too much development for a B-Teamer.

Also, I'm pretty sure Strykore is voiced by Fred Tatascoire, not Jim Cummings. It sounds closer to Fred's deep voice than Jim Cummings. Really, really tough to tell though. It does have a similar texture to Snap Shot's, who is voiced by Fred.

I think Eric said something about using him for both villains, but I could be wrong, it's better to ask him directly.

Also, speaking of the big boi, I went back to get a quote and noticed his spell is a trap; unlike Skull and Kaossandra(I think) that recite only the words backwards, his entire chant is reversed as well.

Live may I more once so you consume it let. He was getting Kaos to say that. Is there any more doubt that he was lying through his teeth about the family stuff?

Well, his signature ability already is remove someone else's free will and possibly put them in life threatening danger with the look of those Mabu in the flashback. Eon did something horrible because he got desperate and couldn't control his magic, Strykore does it because he can.

I noticed that Flashwing only talked in the first epsoide of season 1 and The first epsoide of season 2.
Trigger Happy on the other hand have made on appearance only and that’s in Split decision + He hasn’t had any lines this season.

Trigger Happy actually appears on Thankstaking for the Memories for 2 seconds at the start and end of the episode. That... Counts, right?

Also, can we talk about this?

[User Posted Image]

TeamTO was doing so well with flashback pictures and ****ed up real hard this season. Eon has a beard in the same time he's KNOWN to have none and brown hair, and we have a blue dragon in this supposed picture about purple dragons(and indigo and green dragons in other pictures). Seriously?

True, actually. Even in the Flu episode, Spyro mentions the durability of his scales, not it's color.

Cynder's biography goes on to explain Spyro is the only purple dragon, though. I might have to use that term on the wiki until we actually see them up close, because I have no idea what's about Spyro's scales that are any different from other scale textures. The tail makes sense, but it didn't seem to be the main subject.

The dragon in the back of the picture might simply be blue tinted because of eons magic spell if you look at the lighting. The wings are still purple.

Hmmmm maybe they did it because Cynder and Malefore are different colors, to re confirm scale type isnt color type. That seems a shame but maybe they are trying to take it away from the Dungeons and Dragons aspect of scale colors

The campus? Ka-Boom left the premises, so someone has to do patrol.

Speculating here, the plot is delicious but you can tell they barely had any time to cram in sentences to explain things like in S1. You either show Spyro/Kaos development or you take out a minute to say Hex just goes to a spa during Thankstaking.
