Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! - all Skill Points in Spyro 2 and how to beat them
Idol Springs: Land on Idol
There's a supercharge ramp near the back of this level. In order to land on the idol in the middle of this area, you need to get on the roofs around the outside and glide across to it.
Colossus: Perfect in Hockey
For this Skill Point, you need to beat the Hockey challenge without letting a single goal slip past you. In other words, you need to win 5-0.
Hurricos: All Windmills
Hurricos contains a series of eight windmills that you'll need to locate for this Skill Point. Most of them you should easily find as you progress through the level, but keep your eyes peeled and check around every corner to ensure you've got them all.
Aquaria Towers: All Seaweed
This one is similar to the previous Skill Point. You'll need the Superflame power-up found at the end of the level in order to find all 11 strands of Seaweed. They're not too difficult to find, so just pay close attention and you should get this Skill Point fairly easily.
Ocean Speedway: Under 1:10
This one may take a little practice, but it's doable. All you need to do is complete the main course of the level in under one minute and 10 seconds. Don't fret if you don't do it the first time -- you can try again as many times as you need.
Crush's Dungeon: Perfect
You need to beat Crush, the first boss of the game, without taking any damage to earn this Skill Point. Good luck!
Skelos Badlands: Catbat Quartet
Just past the end of the level is a section with four Catbat enemies. You need to use the nearby lava rocks to take them out. Kill all of them to nab this Skill Point.
Skelos Badlands: All Cacti
Find and flame all seven Cacti in this level to earn the Skill Point. They're all easy enough to find along the main path.
Scorch: All Trees
There are seven palm trees scattered throughout this level. You need to charge into them in order to earn this Skill Point.
Fracture Hills: 3 Laps of Supercharge
This is one of the trickier Skill Points in Spyro 2. You need to perform three unbroken laps of the supercharge course, which means you'll need to know it pretty well. This will take a little practice.
Icy Speedway: Under 1:15
This is self-explanatory: complete the course in under one minute and 15 seconds.
Metro Speedway: Under 1:15
Again, this Skill Point can be earned by completing the course in less than a minute and 15 seconds.
Gulp's Overlook: Perfect
As with Crush, you need to defeat Gulp without taking any damage.
Gulp's Overlook: Hit Ripto
This one is tricky. You'll be able to see Ripto on his throne in the arena. What you need to do is fire one of the mini-rockets at him instead of Gulp.
Canyon Speedway: Under 1:10
As with the other Speedway levels, you simply need to finish the course within the time stated. In this case, under one minute and 10 seconds.
Ripto's Arena: Perfect
The final Skill Point tasks you with taking on Ripto without letting Spyro take a single hit.
