Crash Bandicoot (series)

Crash Bandicoot is a,........................um......well......he's a bandicoot. But he's awesome.

     Crash has a sister named Coco (who is WAY smarter than her brother and step-brother), a step-brother named Crunch (who has a mechanical arm), and a living Tiki mask called Aku Aku (he uses Aku Aku as a shield in the games. He has a Jamaican accent.).

      He was a failed experiment that was SUPPOSED to be evil, but the experiment backfired. Crash was created by Dr. Neo Cortex, the series MAIN villain, and Dr. Nitrus Brio, Cortex's partner in crime. In Crash Twinsanity, in the Tenth Dimension, there is a more feral, carnivorous, and ferocious version of Crash called Evil Crash, who is on a steady diet of raw flesh, and weirdly, there are Ant Soldiers just outside his lair. I wonder if them Ants ran into Evil Crash? In Crash of the Titans and Crash: Mind over Mutant, there is a black & white version of Crash called Carbon Crash, which is identical to Crash in appearance, motion, and skills, the only thing different is that Carbon Crash is black and white, while Crash is orange, black, and yellow.

Here's his life story in the games.

"Woah!" Crash is first seen in Doctor Neo Cortex's and Doctor Nitrus Brio's lab. He was created by them with the Evolvo-Ray, but of course, Cortex considered him a failure due to his kind nature, resulting in Cortex chasing Crash out of the castle. Crash's main objective is to clean up any pollution Dr. Cortex has left and to save Tawna Bandicoot, a female bandicoot and Crash's crush. He must defeat six bosses on the way: the obese tribe chief Papu Papu, the insane Ripper Roo, the hulking Koala Kong, the tommy-gun firing Pinstripe Potoroo, the stuttering Doctor Nitrus Brio and finally the demented Doctor Neo Cortex himself. After Cortex's defeat, Crash and Tawna are seen together on the blimp, then the credits roll. Or alternatively you can collect the gems and ride off with Tawna on the same kind of bird as in Slippery Climb except friendly. Note: This is not the canon ending.

The Sister and the Swindle

Crash in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back.
A year later, Crash is sent off to get a new laptop battery for his sister Coco, but is soon abducted by Doctor Neo Cortex, who claims to have changed his ways. He states that he feels a written invitation would have been turned down. Crash is then ordered to gather Crystals for Cortex while fighting off opposition from Doctor Nitrus Brio, who wants Crash to gather the Gems instead. The game has 5 bosses which consists of Ripper Roo, Komodo Moe and Joe, Tiny, N.Gin and Cortex. When Cortex's true intentions are revealed, Crash sends Cortex flying off into space and aids Doctor Nitrus Brio in destroying Cortex's Cortex Vortex by gathering all 42 gems. In this game Crash has the belly flop, slide, crawl, and the high jump.

Spinning through Time

When the remains of Cortex's space station crash into Earth and set the demonic Uka Uka free, Crash and Coco are recruited by Aku Aku to use Doctor Nefarious Tropy's Time-Twisting Machine to gather the powerful Crystals in their original places before Cortex does so. Crash eventually gathers all 25 Crystals, defeating Nefarious Tropy as well as Cortex, Dingodile, Tiny Tiger, and Doctor N. Gin. Crash then gathers all of the Gems and with Aku Aku has a final battle with Cortex and Uka Uka and the villains are defeated. The Time-Twisting Machine, unable to hold itself together, implodes on itself trapping the evil trio as prisoners of time. The heroes on the other hand escape and return home, having saved the world once more.

Traveller's Tales era

A New Enemy, A New Ally

Crash, as shown in Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex.
Crash, Coco, Aku Aku and Pura are having fun in the N. Sanity beach. Aku Aku is taking in some sun, Pura is building a sand castle, and Coco is riding a jet ski, with Crash attached to the back surfing. Suddenly, the earth is stunned by great disasters, such as a volcano eruption, tornadoes and tsunamis. Crash and company are caught in one of these, and Aku Aku deduces that his evil brother, Uka Uka, is behind these attacks. He goes to the Space Temple where the brothers have a discussion. There, Uka Uka shows Aku Aku that he has awoken the Elementals, powerful masks who control all the nature elements. Aku Aku is attacked by the Elementals and is forced to escape. Back in Crash's House, Aku Aku tells him and Coco about this terrible menace. He then asks the female bandicoot about her VR System, a machine that allows the user to travel to different parts of the world. Aku Aku's plan is to use the device in order to seek the Power Crystals. If five crystals are reunited, an elemental mask could be put in a state of hibernation. Coco finishes the machine and, along with Crash, she uses it to gather the crystals.
Soon they realize that Cortex is also involved in this plan, and that he will use his perfect creation -- the super bandicoot called Crunch -- to kill Crash and company. after gathering five crystals, Crash faces Crunch, who is using the power of the elemental mask of earth Rok-ko. Crash defeats him, and after gathering another five crystals he beats Crunch armed with the mask of water, Wa-Wa. Later, Crash defeats Crunch armed with the mask of fire, Py-Ro. After that, Crunch arms himself with the mask of wind, Lo-Lo, and is defeated again. Finally, Crash gathers the finals five crystals, but these are used to open a way to the Cortex's base, where Crash defeats Crunch ultimately, after being attacked with the power of all the elemental masks.
Suddenly, the base explodes, given the wrong activation of a switch. Crash, Coco, Crunch (now of good mind) and Aku Aku escape to the N. Sanity Island, where Crunch becomes a new partner of the bandicoot family. In the credits Crash is seen dancing with an Afro lab assistant.

Teaming with Cortex!?

Three years after the events of The Wrath of Cortex Crash Bandicoot and friends continue their peaceful life on N. Sanity Island. While Doctor Neo Cortex (along with Uka Uka) remain frozen in an icy prison due to the failure of his recent plot. Once Dr. Cortex hits the shore the ice eventually defrosts, and plots his final revenge against Crash Bandicoot once and for all. On the island Coco Bandicoot was playfully chasing a
Crash in Twinsanity
butterfly unaware that Cortex was watching her. Cortex then swaps his gun to "Paralyze" and fires it at Coco and steals her clothes. Elsewhere on the island Crash was digging burrows in the sand until he was called by Cortex (terribly disguised as Coco) to come check out something in the bay. Crash follows unaware of the trick Cortex has planned, into a battle-like ring. Where Cortex stands on it's edge and removes the disguise, he then compares himself to the fleas in Crash's fur and claims to have put together a birthday party (which is just a gather of past villains). He then begins to attack Crash and after their short feud, he reveals a 40-foot mechanical version of Crash known as Mecha Bandicoot. Crash easily defeats it which causes Cortex so much frustration that he throws himself into Crash and he two begin to engage in a Rollerbrawl. Afterward the duo comes across two familiar looking birds who call themselves the Evil Twins. Cortex mocks their power which angers them and results in Cortex's brain being snatched out and thrown to him. They then tell Cortex to run away in horror which he does cowardly. After a few run-ins with Papu Papu and the island totem god they travel to Dr. Cortex Iceberg Lab where they find themselves locked out due to the extremely cold climates of the island, Crash then follows Cortex for another entrance inside. On their way there they run into Uka Uka who is frozen in a wall of ice, Crash breaks the ice by throwing Cortex into it causing him to break free and spring to life again. Uka Uka immediately notices Crash & Cortex working together which makes him grateful and furious, giving them two options sarcastically "Kiss or Kill" Crash willingly puckers up for the kiss but Uka Uka uses his powers to create a new body of ice and fights Crash & Cortex. After the fight he is stopped by Aku Aku and is warned about the Evil Twins, convinced to help them with their problem he re-unites with Aku Aku and the two fly off. Crash continues his journey only to be greeted by the Evil Twins again and the two prepared for a fierce ambush to greet his return. Crash & Cortex easily defeats their ambush leaving the duo angry cursing Crash Bandicoot and swearing their vengeance. Aku Aku & Uka Uka questions Cortex about the Evil Twins but Cortex claims no affiliation Aku Aku then makes a suggestion that if they deliver him to the Evil Twins they will spare the lives of the others. Cortex seeing no other way out turns to Crash for help, which Crash happily obliges. Crash then follows Cortex to the Psychetron Cortex attempts to use the machine, but it doesn't have enough power to make the leap. Cortex then suggests that they travel to Doctor N. Gin's Battleship before it leaves shore but cannot find a way, Crash watches Cortex hang over the balcony and kicks him in the rear making Cortex fall helplessly on the ground for Crash to create a HumiliSkate towards the ship. Once there Crash battles N.gin on his floating Crows Nest which results into him falling in front of Rusty Walrus, Crash manages to escape but ends up being airborne by an explosion of TNT's dedonated by N.gin fall from his "Crow's Nest". Crash ends up landing on a stranded iceberg with N. Tropy and N. Brio who questions Crash about the treasure (Due to Crash being mute). he does not respond making N. Brio & N.Tropy fight to get the answers out of Crash, who eventually defeats the two and making a mutated N. Brio launch him off the Iceberg and into the Iceberg Lair. Once there Cortex uses the remaining crystals to power up the machine, but Coco (who thought Cortex have kidnapped Crash) attacked Cortex and made one of the crystals fly into the range of the phychetron and delayed the travel. Until Cortex suggested that they go to the Academy of Evil.

Radical Entertainment era

Titan Jacking

Crash in Crash of the Titans.
In Crash of the Titans, Crash aids Coco in the development of a butter-recycling device. This is interrupted when Doctor Neo Cortex arrives and kidnaps Aku Aku and Coco. Crash throws Coco's machine at Cortex's airship, severing the chain holding Aku Aku's cage, which causes the cage to fall into the nearby forest. After Crash rescues Aku Aku, they discover that Cortex and Uka Uka are stealing Mojo from a nearby temple and decide to stop them. Crash is unable to rescue his sister, but manages to defeat Cortex and begins his search for Coco, interrogating Tiny Tiger, N. Gin, and Uka Uka on her whereabouts. Crash finally confronts and defeats Nina Cortex inside of the Doominator robot, liberates his sister and with the help of Coco's part averts the destruction of Wumpa Island. Feeling happy for themselves, Crash and his family decide to celebrate their victory with pancakes, which he blurts out (speaking for the first time) in joy, when Coco and Crunch look at him odly.

The NV of all

Having been defeated by the bandicoots once again, Cortex drops Nina off at an Evil Public School, and returns to Uka-Uka to plan for his next trick. He meets and teams up with Doctor Nitrus Brio once more and introduced their new project to Uka-Uka: The NV. Meanwhile, Coco is now messing with a rather large Doominator which happens to be laying over half the island. She tries to get a screen on it working and asks Crash to go and get her some parts. When he finally gets the parts, she builds a giant TV and Crunch sees on it a commercial for the NV. Crash now has a ability to posses a counter attack meaning dogging and attacking by suprise A mailman brings one, and Coco and Crunch use it for browsing the Internet, but Crash is shocked by electricity every time he touches it. Aku Aku sends out Crash to figure out why, and the two are confronted by N. Gin. After knocking out his Ratnicians, Aku Aku and Crash see Coco and Crunch under what appears to be mind control through N. Gin's telescope. return home to free Coco and Crunch. Crunch runs off still under the spell, leaving Crash to force a mutated Coco into submission. Saving her from the NV, Coco goes on to Doctor Cortex's blog and (somewhat reluctantly) sends Crash to find Nina, who will hopefully confess her uncle's plan. Finding Nina at Evil Public School and saving her science project, she tells Crash where N. Brio and Crunch are located, where he takes off Crunch's helmet, and N. Brio goes away. After that, Crash and his sidekick, Aku Aku, go to Mount Grimly, where he frees Uka Uka, and is sent to go find his bones. After retrieving the bones from the most powerful Titans Crash returns the voodoo bones to Uka Uka at Mount Grimly. Wanting revenge on Cortex, Uka Uka trusts Crash and Aku Aku to use the teleportation systems to defeat Cortex at his new space station. Despite Cortex's cheating in his attempt to physically defeat Crash, the bandicoot repeats history once more as Cortex is defeated and the space station plummets down near Crash's home.

Crash Team Racing

Crash appears as a playable character in Crash Team Racing, in which he drives a blue, well-rounded

 kart. He is a Intermediate racer with Medium turning, Acceleration and speed. He is the only character besides Cortex and Fake Crash (supposedly because of his engine sound) that has these statistics. The beginning starts with people racing at Coco Park with Oxides' cameras watching them where he then announces from his spaceship that he has arrived to challenge the best of earth. If he or she is to lose the world will be turned into a concrete parking lot and you will become his slaves. The cutscene goes on to show everyone preparing for the races in which Crash Bandicoot is sleeping on the grass. This is the only game that he isn't really the main protaganist but Crash is still there. This is due to the fact that adventure can be played by any character. So you powerslide and boost your way through races to win trophies to battle the bosses of each world which they give you keys to race oxide. After defeating Oxide a cutscene comes where he states he wants a rematch once you collect his time relics. After you beat him again the credits roll, after a final cutscene of course. The epilogue states that Crash sold his life story, titled "The Color Orange", to a major film studio, set to be released by the Christmas season. It goes on to say that he can be found on a island doing what he does best, dancing and napping.
(You suspect that the island is N.Sanity island.)
