It didn't take very long for me. I think I needed 2-3 attempts at the first time. Only tricky thing is to learn how to avoid getting hit by the spells the special orbs give to him. Just learn the patterns of those spells, learn to avoid them and get the special orbs before Ripto to get the advantage. Only thing really challenging in that battle to me is the hunt for skill point.
I might give you more opinions... for a small fee of course.

How long it took me to defeat Ripto for the first time? Like 20 lives when I was 6 years old (Yeah, 13 years ago I think), but if you ask me now, no lives at all, maybe 2 or 3 to get the skill point.

Anyway, if you want to defeat him and finish the game, you should study his moves very carefully. Here is some little tricks:

Phase 1:
When you die or enter to the battle, DO NOT MOVE until you saw one of the orbs in the arena, once you saw one, run and get it before Ripto, if Ripto is too close to any orb, just charge or flame him and get it, I highly recommend to get the Green and/or Red Orbs as your number 3 of your orb list because these powerups are easy to use to damage Ripto and not the Blue one (Super-Charge I mean).

Phase 2:
Okay, for me this phase is the hardest one, Ripto will use a Mecha/Robot Gulp version and he is EXTREMELY accurate with his scepter average attack, try to not move so much because Ripto will try to spam his attacks, in this phase I Recommend the Supercharge powerup because is extremely effective against Gulp, but the other ones works great too, just charge to any orb when you saw one before Ripto gets it because Ripto's powerups are NASTY!!

And Phase 3:
The easiest one (my opinion), you will have to fight and defeat Ripto while you are flying, you will get healed by the way, the only way to hurt him is to spam the superflame attack. When he is front of you, he will shoot his scepter homing attack, to dodge it I recommend to turn around and DON'T SEE the missile in your screen, yeah sounds stupid but it works and then search him and keep shooting to him and repeat and you'll make it, hopefully...

I'll hope that works and good luck!! ^-^

If you need the skill point, try getting 100% first so you can use the infinite super flame. You will no longer need to grab orbs at all, but it doesn't help with the last phase.

At least you don't have to get all the skill points to get the infinite GOONROflames.

Gulp took me forever!

Ripto is kinda hard, but if you can memorize his attack patterns, he gets a lot easier.

I think my friend defeated Ripto the first time I got that far in the game. I think I defeated him the second time, and now I can't defeat him.

He's actually quite tough. It took me a few tries, I think I lost about seven lives. I always lose more lives to Gulp, though, because for some reason I get really lazy in his battle- I think it's because once I have the Superflame, he has no means of defence and is very easy to hit. smilie

Getting the skill point is obviously very easy in the first two rounds, but in the last round, it can be a bit difficult to hit him without getting hit back if you're too cocky. You just need to be a little patient in that phase.

You guys should have seen the look on my face when he summoned the robo-gulp the first time. I spent all my hits getting him that far, then, boom, phase two.

he wasn't too tough, but if you plan to het the skill point, well good luck, cause that was tough, took me so many lives on getting the skill point, almost to the point of game over.
On board Spyro Reignited hype, Choo choo!

It took me 5 tries, I think, before I beat him for the first time. I was HOOKED on the Spyro games, so I would always dare to get back up when I was thrown down.

To be honest he was actually the hardest boss, Sorceress, Gnasty Gnorc were SO easy, even easier then Gulp and Crush.
It doesn't matter how spyro looks, he's still the purple dragon we all love! smilie smilie

Earlier today I was getting all the skill points and I went to fight Ripto for the first time in my new game. (With superflame unlocked.) and I "killed" him in like 3 minutes.... Without getting hit. IT WAS AWESOME.

^Superflame absolutely breaks the Ripto fight. Try to get that Skill Point without the superflame, it's quite frustrating. Since if you get in close proximity to him (and you will if you're trying to get an orb) your butt is as good as toasted by a fireball. <.<;
Congrats! You wasted five seconds reading this.
