Rhynocs are common rhinoceros-like enemies in the Spyro videogame franchise.

The Rhynocs are a race of rhino-like creatures that are natives to the Forgotten Worlds and common enemies in Spyro: Year of the Dragon under the command of the Sorceress.

After a thousand years, the Sorceress found a way to employ the Rhynocs (as well as other creatures), much like how Gnasty Gnorc did. She made the Rhynocs her henchmen and used them to fight off Spyro and to capture all the dragon eggs. The artificial creatures are semi-immortal, they live forever as the same soul, though if they die, the Sorceress must bring them back. Chances are that genuine Rhynocs lived in the Forgotten Worlds before the fake ones (Gnorcs).

After the Sorceress' defeat, the Rhynocs discovered that they had no sole purpose, even when serving the Sorceress, until they were employed by Grendor. Grendor gave them new life by giving back their crystals; he sent them also to fight off Spyro. After Grendor's defeat, the Rhynocs once again felt unneeded and useless, until employed by Ripto.

Ripto controlled the Rhynocs when not using his army of Riptocs, and after stealing the Professor's Laboratory. Rhynocs have not been seen since.
