The Barricading Lab Assistant[citation needed] (Japanese: 陰に隠れるシールド研究員、盾研究員) is a Lab Assistant variant that appear in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex, and the N. Sane Trilogy remaster of the second game.


They look like regular Lab Assistants, with white coats and light brown hair, but they hold a big shield in front of them, with a big "N" on the front.


They stand still in one place and push in front of them with the shield. If Crash or Coco approach them with any attack other than the spin attack or slide, they will push them backwards and do a little hop forward.

Attacking them while vulnerable will push them back instead. They can only be defeated by pushing them back until they fall into a bottomless pit, or hazardous obstacle.
