The third and final part to the Legend of Spyro trilogy. Three long years have passed since Spyro and Cynder were trapped in the crystal, since then Malefor has unleashed his evil onto the world. In this third chapter of the epic Legend of Spyro trilogy, Spyro must fulfil his destiny and face the Dark Master. As evil spreads over the world, Spyro and Cynder must discover new abilities and unlock their true powers to defeat Malefor and stop him from destroying the world.
In the culmination of the trilogy, players find Spyro teaming up with an unlikely ally - Cynder, his former enemy, to face his most challenging mission to date. As the Dark Master's (voiced by Mark Hamill) evil envelopes the world like a plague, Spyro must fulfill his destiny and unlock the true power of the purple dragon within him to stop the Dark Master in his tracks.

The graph below charts the compatibility with The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon since Dolphin's 2.0 release, listing revisions only where a compatibility change occurred.
This title has been tested on the environments listed below:
|r5287||Windows 7||Intel Core i7-920 @ 4.05 GHz||ATI Radeon HD 4890||The game can be played at full speed's in HD when fraps is not recording. This goes to show that with a strong enough PC Wii games on dolphin can be emulated quite well.
The game does suffer from a sound bug which makes the audio excruciating to listen to. The music is fine, the sound effects are just being encoded incorrectly. I have added some of the games audio into the video where it is tolerable to listen to.
Aside from this bug, the game works fine. The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon on Dolphin Wii/GC Emulator (1080p HD)
|r6543||Windows 7||Intel Pentium 4 @ 1.8 GHz||NVIDIA GeForce 7600GS||In Game|
|r7723||Mac OS X 10.6.8||Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.4 GHz||NVIDIA GeForce 320M||Playable|
|4.0.2||Windows 7||Intel Core i7-3930K @ 4.3 GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770||The game has minor audio glitches (the audio is perfectly fine at 100% speed) and majior performance problems and can barely manage 60FPS, but keeping it at 60FPS in fights its impossible, changing graphics settings does little if anything in terms of gaining extra frames. The game can be played through to completion.|
|4.0-3471||Windows 7||Intel Core i7-3930K @ 4.3 GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770||Graphical glitches in menus and pre-rendered cutscenes (in-engine cutscenes are fine), framerate cuts in half when breaking crystals. other than these issues the game runs perfectly with no issues at all.|
|5.0-2272||Windows 10||Intel Core i7-6700k @ 4.5 GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070||Game is perfect other then images/videos having lines in them & lines at both side of the screen.||Zewia|
