- "Clear your mind Spyro, and feel the fire that flows through your veins. Allow its heat to consume you, and breathe with it. Now, rise up and release the firestorm within you!"
- —The Chronicler
Fire was the first element Spyro learned, and was his basic breath, which became more powerful as it was upgraded. The secondary attack was the ability to hurl fire bombs that arched forward and exploded upon impact. Fire fury was fire raised up and then it exploded outwards. When you fully upgrade the breaths the fire fury gets upgraded and shoots explosive embers out of it.
The primary fire breath could be upgraded to launch homing fire missiles along with the breath, whilst the secondary attack was the Comet Dash, a headlong rush and strike with fire. Fire fury was a cylinder shaped blast of fire with comets circling around it.
Spyro's Fire breath is much more stronger, as his Dragon's fire is upgraded, it can spread from enemies to other enemies. His secondary attack retains the Comet Dash from The Eternal Night, a flaming, ramming attack unlocked by upgrading the fire element. When the Comet Dash is fully upgraded, it can cause massive amounts of damage.
- The element of Fire was the first element both Spyro and Malefor mastered.
