Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon Easter Egg Screenshot by xFlowerstarx Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon Easter Egg Screenshot by xFlowerstarx
This is an Easter Egg which only works if you attempt to block the NPC's (Non-playable Character) way which ensues them to say things you normally wouldn't expect them to. However, this doesn't work on everyone. It will only work on Bartholomew, who is Bentley's little brother, and the female pandas from the Bamboo Terrace. Though, trying to block the pandas' way is much tougher than doing the same to Bartholomew. I discovered this Easter Egg by accident when I thought that Bartholomew is following me. It's definitely worth giving this a try for a laugh.

Also, this Easter Egg will only occur if you start the whole game from scratch on a new file. When you're at the beginning of Bentley's Outpost for instance, walk towards Bartholomew and talk to him. He asks you to break the boulder which is blocking the doorway. When you destroy it, proceed to the next area but don't walk through the doorway entirely. Turn around and you should see him standing on one of the steps behind you. Go over and talk to him and he'll tell you to move out of his way since he is supposed to be moving ahead of you.

Me too! :) :D :meow: It's one of my favourite Classic Spyro games. Plus, in my opinion, it's the perfect way to celebrate Chinese New Year. After all, the game IS called "Year of the Dragon" for a reason. It's named after one of the creatures or animals from the Chinese Zodiac and it is released in 2000, which is the Year of the Dragon at the time. The Year of the Dragon comes every 12 years and there won't be another one until another 12 years. It is regarded as the most luckiest out of all the animals and the most sacred. Just let me know if you want to know more of Chinese New Year.

I knew that. :D Last year was year of the Snake, and 2012 was year of the dragon, also. :D And I just played through this game again! Omigosh, so many fond memories of playing this with my mom when I was younger. 8D In this game, my fave characters are Bianca, Sheila, Sgt. Byrd, and Agent 9. Who are yours?

Yep, last year was my Chinese Zodiac year which just so happens to be the Year of the Snake and 2012 is the Year of the Dragon also. I played this game for 15 days since the Chinese New Year festivities/holiday tends to last for that long which is my way of celebrating Chinese New Year. Anyway, you ought to check out my review. It's very popular amongst the fans. I have written it two years ago. This year is the Year of the Horse and I already have special plans for it. The celebration may have ended but it's still the Year of the Horse until next year. Um... my favourite character is obviously Spyro himself. I used to like Zoe but she's not my favourite character anymore. By the way, do you have a habit of turning the camera to face Spyro? He's soooooo adorable with those pair of big amethyst-coloured eyes. :aww: :meow: He seemed to have purple irises in those irresistibly adorable eyes.

Yeah, that sounds cool. :D
Awww, yesh! He's sooo adorable!! <3 I would stand facing a wall and rotate the camera so it doesn't automatically jump back in place. Also, did you know that if you keep Spyro idle long enough, Sparx will move toward the camera?

I already knew that YEARS ago. Why are you telling me something from 14 years ago? :facepalm: :icondoublefacepalmplz: Everyone knows that.
dinahsty0 Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2014
I just didn't think anyone would purposely keep Spyro idle for the chance of seeing that. :/ I discovered it one day when I left him standing in Sunrise spring home, and when I came back, Sparx was at the screen. (I forgot to pause the game.)

But still, you shouldn't be telling me something that's old news and so 14 years ago.

Not really an easter egg, just an ingame feature that meant to add a bit more interactivity in the game. If somebody accidently blocked an NPC they might not understand why nothing's happening, in this particular case, they won't have to guess as NPC explains to them that they're blocking NPC's path.

I thought it is an easter egg 'cause it is so secret and I didn't realise this until numerous years later when I replayed the level just for old times sake. I tried doing it on anyone I came across to like for instance, the hummingbirds, but it didn't work.
