The original Spyro trilogy introduced Skill Points with Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage. These are in-game achievements awarded to the player for performing certain tasks or meeting certain requirements. There is a total of 50 different Skill Points across all three games in Spyro Reignited Trilogy Remaster for PS4 and Xbox One. There are 14 Skill Points in Spyro 1, 16 Skill Points in Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage, and finally 20 Skill Points in Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon. Getting a Skill Point in the Reignited Trilogy awards you with a life, concept art sketches, and endgame content such as characters’ stories. Below you’ll find a list of all Skill Points in each game and what to do to unlock them. You can keep track of your skill points by viewing the Guidebook in the Pause Menu and pressing / .
Artisans: Reach tricky platform
As soon as you’re able to control Spyro, run towards the hilltop where the two Gnorcs are. From this viewpoint, glide onto the platform opposite you. You can see some gems and a treasure chest on it. Once you land, the Skill Point will be yours.
Stone Hill: Burn the hidden pink tulip
In Stone Hill (Artisans) immediately after reaching the area with the Shepherds, stop for a moment. Use your camera to look behind you and point it up. You’ll see a pink tulip sitting on the higher area of the level. Reach this area and burn it to get the Skill Point.
Town Square: All bulls stuck
In Town Square (Artisans) are several bulls running around the level. To get this Skill Point you need to charge each bull instead of flaming them. Doing so will cause the bull’s horns to get stuck on the floor. Make sure to not flame them after to avoid voiding the Skill Point.
Peacekeepers: Scare 6 Gnorcs into tents
In the Peace Keepers Home world are several Foot Soldiers that will retreat back into their tents in fear if you flame at least one of them. Luckily there are 9 tents, so all you need to do is to kill one Foot Soldier to scare the nearby ones back into their tents. Rinse and repeat until you unlock the Skill Point.
Dr. Shemp: Perfect
To unlock this Skill Point you need to defeat Dr. Shemp (just the boss) without taking damage. Dr. Shemp is a level in Peace Keepers.
High Caves: Burn hidden painting
In High Caves (Magic Crafters), after killing the Green Druids moving the platforms they’re standing on, you’ll enter a new area. Instead of continuing on, turn 360° and to the left side of the entrance is the hidden painting. Burn it for a Skill Point.
Blowhard: Ride a Druid platform for 10 seconds
Halfway through the level, you will have to enter a cave where a set of Green Druids are moving platforms you have to use to get across to the other side. Stand on one of these platforms for at least 10 seconds to unlock this Skill Point. This is very easy because Druids don’t hurt you.
Terrace Village: No electric floor damage

To unlock this Skill Point you need to defeat Metalhead (just the boss) without taking damage.
Dream Weavers: Secret room

Haunted Towers: Burn blue wizard hat
For this Skill Point you need to find a hidden blue wizard hat that is sitting on top of a roof. After using the first whirlwind, go up the stairs and when you get to the last step stop for a moment. In the distance you’ll see a castle and a small platform you’ll be able to fly to. Fly to the platform and you’ll find the blue wizard hat here. You may not be able to reach it with a regular flight, so be ready to flame the hat while as you approach the platform or ram off the platform to extra distance while flying.
Lofty Castle: Destroy hidden stump
After you freed the first set of fairies, they will make a whirlwind for you to cross over to the central area. After you land in the central area, to your immediate left there’s a tower and behind it a small grassy platform with the hidden tree stump on it. To reach it, proceed through the level normally as you would to reach the exit. After the S-shaped indoor walkway, turn right and glide over to a platform with a tree on it, then glide over to the tower. You need to glide around the tower to reach the tree stump next to it. You can only ram it.

To free her you need to use the Supercharge power-up available in the level, but you first need to activate it by farming enough kills. Once activated, run one lap to free the faun.

Once you have freed him you can return to Molten Crater and take on his challenge. This egg challenge requires you to put all heads together in a circle.

Scattered across the level are gophers, ground animals that are very similar to moles. To kill them you need to use bombs Sgt. Byrd can drop from his fins to kill enemies, destroy chests, and unearth new areas.
Frozen Altars: Beat the Yeti in two rounds
This is probably the hardest Skill Point to achieve because it takes place during one of the thorniest minigames in the whole trilogy: the Boxing Challenge with the Yeti. To get this Skill Point you must beat the yeti within two rounds, thus avoiding going to the third and final round.
Lost Fleet: Beat the record at the skateboard course
The skateboard course is an area you need to visit if you’re aiming for 100% completion of the level.

Fireworks Factory: Agent 9’s power-up
This takes place in Agent 9’s mini game in Fireworks Factory. First, you need to pay Moneybags 1,300 gems to free Agent 9. Only then can you go back to Fireworks Factory and attempt Agent 9’s mini game, which is a sheer FPS. Start the mini game and clear out all enemies in the first room, then approach the door. It will open and new enemies will start shooting at you. Clear those, too. Afterward, move forward, keep clearing whatever it’s in your path, including the enemy dispenser. Retrace your steps and go back to the room where you killed your first enemies. Look up and you’ll see a red box. Shoot this box and you will get both a power-up that will are this challenge a bit easier and the Skill Point.
Charmed Ridge: The Impossible tower
In one of the caves in Charmed Ridge is a Superflame power-up gate. Next to it is a climbable wall that will get you to a sort of balcony. From here you can see a Cat Wizard conjuring up some magic. Fly to and get rid of him, then fly to the platform that is right in from of you. From here charge and jump to gain enough altitude to reach the tower on your left. You will probably need to hover to reach it safely. Once you’ve landed, you’ll unlock the Skill Point.
Charmed Ridge: Shoot the temple windows
To unlock this Skill Point you need Sgt. Byrd once again. You should’ve freed him already. During his mini game you need to get rid of flying cat witches swooping down on you by using your rockets.

This is the box you need to push off the cliff. Do so and you’ll unlock the Skill Point.
Desert Ruins: Destroy all seaweed
Similarly to Aquaria Towers from the second game, this time you have to do the same, but only in a specific section of the level. While visiting the underwater area where you take on Hunter’s challenge, use the Superflame power-up to flame the weed you see floating around the level. Destroy them all and you’ll unlock this Skill Point.
Haunted Tomb: Swim in the dark hole
As you progress through the level you’ll notice that one of the water streams has a seemingly empty area at one of its ends. The area is dark and you would never go here otherwise. Swimming here will award you with this Skill Point though, so make sure you go here.
Dino Mines: Hit all the seahorses
This is a very easy Skill Point to unlock as it is part of your 100% completion run of the level. The mini game here requires you to save a dragon egg after swimming through a mine with falling logs of wood, mines, and seahorses shooting at you. As you make your way to the end of the tunnel, make sure to hit all sea horses to unlock the Skill Point. You don’t have to hit them all in one run. In this particular challenge the seahorses don’t respawn.
Dino Mines: Hit the secret dino
To attempt this Skill Point you first need to free Agent 9 which requires you to pay Moneybags 1,300 gems. This is Agent 9’s mini game in Dino Mines, a FPS challenge where you need to shoot down all dinosaurs trying to kill you. At the very end of the mini game you’ll be overborne with dinosaurs coming from all angles. One of them, just casually posing by, is a red dinosaur. Shoot him down to unlock this Skill Point. If somehow you missed it, you can always play Agent 9’s mini game again.
