Welcome to Bandipedia!



Carbon Crash (or Carbon Crash Bandicoot) is a clone of Crash created by Cortex. Carbon Crash is used by the second player in Crash of the Titans, and in Crash: Mind Over Mutant prior to Coco's defeat. His name is a pun on the phrase "carbon copy".


Physical appearance[]

He and Crash are completely identical except that Carbon Crash has pale white fur, turquoise tattoos, black hair, green shorts and brown sneakers. However, in the PlayStation 2 version of Mind Over Mutant, his tattoos and hair are silver-colored.


As seen in the promotional short "Have Another", Carbon Crash was created by Cortex using the cloning machine called the "Make-Another-Ator" on a captured Crash, in order to defeat him with an army of "him". For an initial test, Cortex ordered Nina to use the Arachnina on him, though while doing so she ended up cutting through Crash's cage and freeing him. The two bandicoots started to fight, but when they bumped into Cortex and the Make-Another-Ator fell on the ground, cloning both Crash and Carbon Crash, resulting in the creation of 18 colored Crash clones, who joined up and defeated Arachnina by knocking it down, forcing Cortex and Nina to flee. Crash reunited the clones and was about to 'make-less' them, but after seeing all of them making sad faces, he changed his mind. They ended up relaxing at the beach, with Crash cloning a Wumpa Fruit with the Make-Another-Ator for Carbon Crash.


Crash of the Titans[]

Carbon Crash is seen as the second player. He has no connection to the story, however, he can be very helpful in some levels. Like Crash, Carbon Crash has costumes, and just as they have different color schemes, their costumes have as well. While in co-op mode, they can jump in and out of each other's backpack in order to progress certain areas with ease.

Crash: Mind Over Mutant[]

In Crash: Mind Over Mutant, he plays the same role as he did in Crash of the Titans. However, he is replaced by Coco in the Xbox 360 and Wii versions of the game, and only appears as a skin for her.


Carbon Crash is able to perform every move Crash can. In Mind Over Mutant's co-op mode, both of them are able to turn into a mask, similar to Aku Aku, and then shoot chickens that explode on contact with enemies, walls, or the ground.
