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. With the exception of Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex, ! 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.
