This battle occurs when the entire Lodge gets distracted by Devon and Cornwall's hilarious antics after they retrieved Excalibur. Kayley, Spyro and Sparx walk out of their sights. But when Kayley suggests they go back for Garen, Dark Cynder and Ruber's minions capture them.
Dark Cynder encounters Spyro and Sparx once again. She headbutts Spyro across the field, and the League teases him about his cowardice. But Spyro instead fights Dark Cynder.
The fight only lasted 30 seconds because of Spyro's powerful attacks until Dark Cynder smacks him again, then has Ruber's minions tie him up. Dark Cynder then snatches Excalibur, and uses it to revive Lord Cobra.
