Crash Bandicoot manual
Crash Bandicoot 2 Cortex Strikes Back Iron ! Crate
! Crates usually turn the outline crates into other types of crates, often iron crates, creating a bridge that allows the player to cross gaps, and regular crates containing wumpa fruit. Occasionally, they have other purposes, such as in The Lab, where they activate doors and platforms. ! Crates don't count toward the box count as they are indestructible.

There are many variants of the ! crate. In many games, there is a green variant- the nitro switch crate, used to detonate all nitro crates in a level. In Crash Nitro Kart and the Nitro-Fueled remaster of Crash Team Racing there is a wooden variant which activates traps after being broken. In Crash Bash, there is a purple variant found in many Pogo Pandemonium mini-games that turn a player's squares into points. They are also blue in the mobile version of Crash Twinsanity.
