For me Jed is the 2nd hardest dragon to get in Spyro 1. The reason why I used #13 for this picture was because I actually did lose 13 lives that and 13 is a number that symbolises bad luck.
Edit: Jees... lot of people want to know what my hardest dragon was o.o. My hardest was Copano from the hidden supercharge room in haunted towers. Look down in the comments to see why.
Surprisingly, that dragon in Haunted Towers you mentioned in the description was one I was able to get easily... but only because that's the ONE thing from the game I remembered when I played it as a kid a long time ago, so I was prepared for it the moment I entered the level. Still managed to claim my life once or twice though.
I lost so many lives trying to get to this dragon. >_<
That is SOOOOOOOOOO funny " SPYRO: 13 Lives later
Man, some of these guys were hard as tits to find.
...But Jed was right, though; that WAS one hell of a ride.
