Ripto is a dinosaur and the antagonist of some Spyro games. He utterly despises dragons and will attempt to destroy Spyro at every opportunity. He usually sends out his lackeys, Crush and Gulp, to do his dirty work. He uses a scepter to cast evil spells, but isn't quite as good as a master dragon.
Crash Purple: Ripto's Rampage
In Crash Purple: Ripto's Rampage, he teams up with Dr. Cortex to destroy their common enemies. He is the penultimate boss and then he unites with Cortex in a battle ship, which the player has one minute to destroy. After destroying the battle ship, the player beats the game.
- Ironically, his name is identical to Spyro's Japanese name.
