Cheat Codes have returned in Spyro Reignited Trilogy from the classic titles, including Big Head Mode, 99 Lives and other retro-style cheats. However so far they are only limited to codes that either didn’t use O or use it as the last input, as that quits out of the Pause Menu. Cosmetic codes will carry over between the three games and stack on top of each other, however they won’t appear in cutscenes. Lastly, using these will not disable Trophies/Achievements, even the 99 Lives code.
How to Enter Cheat Codes
To enter a code, pause the game first. To remove a cosmetic code, simply input the code again.
99 Lives Code
This code will instantly top Spyro up to the maximum amount of lives, 99.

Spyro 2 Superflame Toggle Code
After you’ve collected all 10,000 Gems and all 64 Orbs in Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage!, you can access the Permanent Superflame Powerup in Dragon Shores. Not only does this unlock Permanent Superflame in that save, it also unlocks it for all three Spyro 2 saves, including ones that already have saves in them! Note however that this only applies to Spyro 2, not Spyro the Dragon or Year of the Dragon.
If you want to go back to the regular Flame Attack without deleting all your Reignited save data, simply input the platform-appropriate code below to switch back. Inputing the code again will turn the Superflame back on again.

Tiny Wings Code
This code shrinks the size of Spyro’s wings, making him looks like many of the flightless-but-winged enemies of the trilogy.

This cheat gives Spyro the shades he wore (at night) in the 117% ending of Spyro the Dragon. This code can stack with the Big and Small Head cheats listed above, but will overwrite the Flat Spyro code below.

Flat Spyro Code
This code squashes Spyro’s Z dimensions so that he’s as flat as a rapping Jack Russel. Note that Flat Spyro will overwrite the Sunglasses code above.

Xbox: Left, Right, Left, Right, LT, RT, LT, RT, X
Colour Change Codes
These codes will paint Spyro a consistent colour all over, with the exception of his eyes. The code listed below is the same across all colours, while [FINAL] represents the last button in the code that determines what colour Spyro will turn into, listed in the table.
PlayStation: Up, Left, Down, Right, Up, Square, R1, R2, L1, L2, Up, Right, Down, Left, Up, [FINAL]
Xbox: Up, Left, Down, Right, Up, X, RB, RT, LB, LT, Up, Right, Down, Left, Up, [FINAL]
Squid Skateboard Code
This cheat, exclusive to Year of the Dragon, turns Spyro’s board into a squid. Originating from the PS1 original, this is a reference to the boarding challenge originally only being in Lost Fleet, where it used a squid instead of a skateboard.
