How Evil Red joined the Tourney
Many years passed, and Red returned to the Dragon Realms with dark stones known as Dark Gems to fuel his evil power. Spyro and Alisa Bosconovitch discovered that the Dragon Realms were being plunged into darkness, and teamed up with Mario, Crash Bandicoot, and Talim, in order to take down Red and his unholy alliance of Gnasty Gnorc, who was thought to have been defeated in Spyro the Dragon, and Ogre, a beastly god of fighting who lives in the ancient temples of Arizona. The five heroes teamed up and battled their way through the homeworlds, and eventually defeated the evil dragon. However, Red escaped to the Smash Bros. Tourney and captured Professor Mole, forcing him to build an army of robots to get revenge.
