His name is pronounced "Nasty Nork", as if without the Gs. However, the interviewer at the start of the first game pronounces the Gs (although this can be dismissed as ignorance).
Gnasty Gnorc is a mean, ugly, bad tempered, and 'nasty' Gnorc (a gnome and orc-like creature) who hates Dragons. He is unintelligent, sensitive about his appearance, and will not hesitate to attack those who stand in his way. He is mostly a bully and loves to taunt when you can't reach him, but when you get too close, he will panic and run.
Prior to Spyro the DragonEdit
Gnasty Gnorc was originally an inhabitant of the Dragon Realms, but as time went on, he found it hard to live with the Dragons' rules and customs, and he became chaotic and unruly as he gazed at the dragons' treasure cache of gems that were not only beautiful to look at but also showed him the reflection of his own ugly mug. As time went on Gnasty began causing mischief which soon escalated into trouble in the Dragon Realms as he began learning and meddling with magic. So the Dragons banished Gnasty to a wasteland world known as the Dragon Junk Yard, where he was far enough away to do whatever he wanted without hurting any other residents. Gnasty Gnorc in Spyro the DragonAdded by Nappa77Gnasty renamed the wastelands "Gnasty's World." He realized that his power was nothing without minions to command. After a while, he found out that he could turn gems into Gnorcs and so he began "borrowing" the Dragons' treasure and creating gnorcs out of them. The Dragons knew of this, but believed it would be best to let it go for the time being, so as not to upset Gnasty.
Dragon Realms InvasionEdit
One day, during the creation of a documentary video for the DNN (Dragon News Network), Lindar, when asked about Gnasty Gnorc, calls Gnasty "ugly," along with other derogatory terms. Gnasty, who overhears this, becomes enraged and encases every dragon in crystal (except for Spyro, who is apparently too small for him to notice). He then confiscates their entire treasury, turning some of the gems into Gnorcs and scattering the rest throughout the Dragon Realms. Gnasty also hires thieves to steal the remaining twelve Dragon eggs in an attempt to fully exterminate the Dragons. Since Spyro is the sole remaining Dragon, he takes it upon himself to free all the other Dragons, recover the gems and eggs, and defeat Gnasty.
Gnasty Gnorc and Spyro fightingAdded by Swansonak1In the final battle between Spyro and Gnasty Gnorc, Spyro must catch the thieves who hold keys to certain doors. Gnasty will meanwhile fire magic beams at him (which turned the other Dragons into crystal). Once Spyro reaches Gnasty, Gnasty runs away. Spyro must chase Gnasty throughout the realm and get close enough to flame him. After this, Gnasty will enter a lava tunnel. Spyro must follow him, gliding from platform to platform (each of which is gradually cascading into the walls) until he gets to the end where Gnasty will be waiting. Spyro must flame Gnasty a second time to finish him off.
A Hero's TailEdit
In Spyro: A Hero's Tail, Gnasty Gnorc was resurrected by Red, an evil Dragon Elder, and assisted him in his evil plans. When Spyro confronts Gnasty the second time, Gnasty claims that he was the one who defeated Spyro, but Spyro corrects him and the battle ensues. This time, Gnasty seems stronger and trickier to work with because he doesn't simply run away. After Spyro defeats him, the trapped Electric Fairy, Amp, grants Spyro the power of Electric Breath.
