Spyro's Moneybags voted as 'the worst character in gaming' by fans

Spyro's Moneybags voted as 'the worst character in gaming' by fans

Spyro is a name that evokes strong childhood memories for me and many other people. We could soar through the sky, take down our enemies, save the day and look cool whilst doing it; a golden gaming experience for sure. Yet there was a darkness lurking within those jolly pixels, of a greedy bear who snatched our gems away from us at every turn. Moneybags.

Many have been burnt by his greed, so much so that fans have voted him the “worst character in gaming”, a title not easily received. This isn’t just the case of an unintentionally unlikeable character – Moneybags is designed to annoy you, with his so-called “help” feeling more like an insult than an aid. I bet if you dug deep enough, you’d discover a disclaimer in the Spyro and Crash Bandicoot petitions saying that Moneybags shouldn’t be saved.

Time to focus on the greatness of Spyro Reignited Trilogy and not the greedy lies of a certain bear...

“As a kid, I literally learned the word 'fee' from that dude,” shared SuttreeBeard on Reddit. “Such a piece of sh*t I learned a process of capital from him.” We all did, my friend, we all did. It was unavoidable when a conman as skilful as Moneybags gets their paws on you. The amount of time I spent grinding to find gems, searching high and low, every nook and cranny, doesn’t bear thinking about.

Let me posit this: there’d be no Tom Nook without Activision's Moneybags.

Some fans were less detailed with their ire, simply saying “F*ck that guy” before running away to cry about all the gems they lost to Moneybags’ schemes. If you think expletives are too much, you’ve clearly never had to deal with this deceitful bear before.

Perhaps the only Spyro character that can rival Moneybags for the top spot of worst character are the Thieves. Every time I hear “na nana na na” I immediately shudder. I spent hours – hours – struggling to catch those sticky-fingered inconveniences when I was a kid. “I’m imagining a purgatory where you chase him endlessly. That would mean unspeakable suffering, as you listen to his ‘na-na na-na-na’ bullsh*t into perpetuity,” said jacksonattack, and it’s a horror I never want to face.

Thank goodness that our beautiful purple boy is returning without Moneybags in tow! Long may Moneybags never darken our consoles or lighten our wallets again.
