Special Moves

Neutral Special Dragon Breath Spyro unleashes a spurt of flames from his mouth. These flames deal minor knockback and only 12% of damage. Can be charged to become bigger and deal 25% of damage.
Custom 1 Daybringer Breath A larger and more powerful fire breath. Takes twice as long to charge and recharge.
Custom 2 Thunder Breath Replaces the fire with lightning. Comes out faster, but isn't nearly as powerful.
Custom 3 Icy Breath Replaces the fire with ice. Freezes opponents when fully charged, but deals no damage regardless.
Custom 4 Magical Breath A combination of the Dragon, Thunder, and Ice Breath. Whichever one you use is randomly picked.
Side Special Charge Spyro lowers his head and charges forward for as long as the button is held, and can change direction. Spyro can only be knocked out of this attack with stronger attacks.
Custom 1 Armor Charge Spyro cannot be knocked out of the attack and takes less damage, but moves much slower while using it.
Custom 2 Quick Charge Only lasts the length of a button tap. Spyro charges forward and takes no damage or knockback, but has no control.
Custom 3 Inferno Charge Spyro becomes engulfed in flames while using the move. Invincible at first, but becomes vulnerable after a while.
Custom 4 Slip Charge Spyro deals no damage to opponents, but instead causes them to trip.
Up Special Spyro's Flight Spyro takes off in a loop, which damages opponents, and then shoots upwards a good distance. This move works as an effective recovery.
Custom 1 Dragon's Flight Ditches the loop and just takes off, reaching a greater distance at the expense of not having a hitbox.
Custom 2 Blustery Flight Spyro creates a burst of wind upon initiating the move, pushing opponents away from him.
Custom 3 Combo Flight A powerful loop attack with great knockback, at the expense of not being a very effective recovery.
Custom 4 Spiral Flight Spyro loops and barrels through opponents, damaging them rapidly as he does so.
Down Special Earth Pound Spyro jumps up into the air, unless he's already airborne, and slams into the ground head-first, damaging any opponents he comes into contact with.
Custom 1 Grounded Pound Buries opponents on contact, but doesn't deal as much damage.
Custom 2 Quake Pound Spyro hits the ground harder to create rock pillars that damage opponents. Takes longer to pull off.
Custom 3 Quick Pound Doesn't take as long to pull off, but leaves Spyro more vulnerable after using it.
Custom 4 Dragon Pound Spyro creates a patch of flames after hitting the ground that temporarily give him super armor.
Final Smash Dragon Eruption Spyro's eyes glow white as he gains a flaming aura that causes pillars of fire to erupt all over the stage, damaging and knocking away anyone who comes into contact with them.
Custom Final Smash Master of the Elements Spyro's eyes glow white as he uses all his elemental abilities in battle, creating flames, summoning lightning, freezing opponents, and causing earthquakes.
