It is possible to avoid the attack since they only toss the cocktails in front of Crash or Coco, leaves burning soot stains where the flames were. They are also encountered in Crash Bandicoot 2: N-Tranced, and the N. Sane Trilogy remaster of the third game.
In the original game, they resemble a woman in a purple suit, with eyes of the same color. They also have a yellow belt. In N. Tranced, they are Lab Assistant, that resemble the blade-throwing variant. In the remake, they also are a Lab Assistant, but look more like the original variants with a Ninja suit.
Arsonists are similar the Beaker-Throwing Lab Assistants in behavior, throwing a projectile at Crash or Coco. However, unlike the aforementioned assistants, the projectile lands onto a scorch mark and creates a small wall of fire that can be jumped over if Crash or Coco is careful or if they have the Double Jump power up.
They can be disposed of easily by the use of the Fruit Bazooka. They can also be spun, although that is a risky tactic to use on most of them, due to the chasm between them and the path. In N-Tranced, Crash can also defeat them by jumping on them.
- In Warped, their clothing closely resembles a Niqab, a garment typically worn by Muslim women.
