Crash Bandicoot Wrath of Cortex Body Slam

Crash's body slam

The Body Slam, also known as the Belly Flop, is one of Crash's moves. To perform it, the player must jump and press the duck button (Circle in PlayStation games) while in the air. Crash will slam down and crush anything beneath him. It was first used in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back.


The Body Slam can destroy locked crates (although the Super Charged Body Slam is needed to do this in Crash Bandicoot: Warped). Other than that, it doesn't have many uses. It can also be used to gain slightly more height from a jump, albeit less than the Double Jump in Warped.

Coco has an equivalent move in Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex (a stomp attack) and in the N. Sane Trilogy remasters of the second and third games (the Double Leg Drop)[a].


The Belly Flop's Power-Up is the Super Charged Body Slam. It increases the radius of the Belly Flop by two or three crates.

In Crash Bandicoot: Warped, it is obtained after defeating the first boss, Tiny Tiger. In the Wrath of Cortex, it appears as a secret power-up, obtainable in Banzai Bonsai's red gem path.


Crash uses the Body Slam in Crash Bandicoot: Dansu! De Jump! Na Daibouken to try and impress Aku Aku and to 'clean' Ripper Roo's books. Instead of referring to it as the 'Body Slam', Crash calls it the 'Body Press'.


  1. In the N. Sane Trilogy's trophy/achievement list for Cortex Strikes Back, the Body Slam is referred as "Double Leg Drop" for Coco, in the "Boom Shakalaka!" trophy description.
