xx Light Gems-Where's the Story Tie-In?
« Thread started on: Jun 16th, 2005, 9:03pm »

As we all know, Spyro the Dragon is a series in which you must collect doodads. Some people frown down upon these collectathons, while others enjoy them. Obviously, we enjoy them, or else we wouldn't spend our lives collecting every little sparkly thing and gem that we see.

And each sparkly thing that we collected tied to the story.

Spyro 1-The Dragons. You had to save them from their spell to restore the realms.
Spyro 2-Orbs. They reopen the portals closed and helped Spyro return home.
Spyro 3-The Dragon Eggs. They bring magic back to the Forgotten Worlds and the fact that they're living things says something.
Enter the Dragonfly-Dragonflies. The dragon's health bars. Of course they need returning.
Season of Ice-The faeries. Need to free them before Grendor can use them for a spell.
Season of Flame-The Fireflies. You need to capture them so that the dragon realms can return to their normal temperature.
Attack of the Rhynocs-The Hearts of the worlds. You need to collect them to send Ripto and his rhynoc army back through the rip in the two realms.

Excluding Spyro Orange, which really wasn't a collectathon at all, A Hero's Tail is different from this story. Where is the story tie-in for those Light Gems? All I see them as is just another thing for the developers to make us waste our time on.

And yes, I know the Elders have Light Gems in their staffs. I bet they feel really powerful knowing that they have only one while Spyro's carting around 100.

The only story tie-in is when The Professor asked Spyro what he was collecting and he answers with Light Gems.

...

WHY Light Gems? It's not like they're counteracting against the Dark Gems' magic because Spyro does that.

With his head.

WHY THE LIGHT GEMS?

Perhaps Spyro is getting a little greedy in the recent games, collecting the light gems probably just for himself... even Moneybags wasn't that greedy (and he overcharges Spyro of his gems). The light gems had no purpose whatsoever, as they weren't used at all in the ending. Notice that Spyro would do anything just for a light gem? Something isn't right in that game...

Good point. But, with the Dark Gems destroyed, maybe the dragon realms weren't turned back to normal unless te Light Gems have been brought back to the Elders. *shrugs*

I agree. Since I got the game I always thought he was just colecting them for himself. Hey, Maybe collecting light gems is his new hobbie! cheesy

We can only imagine, really. Maybe they'll have some tie-in with the DS game. Something about everyone being banished to the "Shadow Realm" (Yu-Gi-Oh, anyone?), so maybe they could have something to dow tih illuminating the realms...</poor speculation>

Guys, guys, guys... Remember, this is VU we're talking about here - they're the idiots who make so many plotholes in their games, that their end products are rather like swiss cheese.

Venom is right. How can we put logic in the Spyro world, now that VU properly annihilated every single piece of logic in the Spyro games?

The only tie in I see with the light gems is that they make stuff work. Like the ball gadget,some doorways (I almost said portal but then i remembered that they got rid of portals angry!) You get the picture.

Yeah, like SpyrotheDragon said. The LightGems powered up the Professor's gadgets. They also unlocked hidden doors to other areas of a level...

-_- Ok, ok, I'm not one to talk, just because I like them. I'll shut up now...

Yeah, but then again, anything could power up Professor's gadgets. He used to use Orbs.

The Light Gems can just be taken and replaced with Orbs because the story doesn't mention them at all. If you were to have Orbs, it'd be the same game storywise. Hell, we could be collecting statues of rubber ducks and it'd be the same game BECAUSE OF NO STORY TIE-IN!

This would be funnier, actually. grin
The Orbs are in Avalar... And we all know that we didn't hear of Avalar since YotD.

Just one question. Why does everyone here seem to be obsessed with Avalar? I'm not saying I don't like it. It just caught my attention that everyone likes Avalar more than any other realm. tongue I dunno maybe it's just me.

To answer your question, I have no clue. The orbs are probably only specific to Avalar, and maybe the Forgotten Realm because the Professor used them to get there. Maybe it's just because of VU or something in each of our subconcious that we're wondering about Avalar because VU "destroyed" it.

Anways, back on topic, Light Gems are just used in certain parts of the Dragon Realms...?

Two words: Daragon Hoards. 'nuff said. Dragons want the gems for their hoards. Why else would there be so little compared to the millions of dragons in the Dragon Realms? Only 100. ONLY 100 LIGHT GEMS IN A HERO'S TAIL.
