The Cow is a weapon item in Crash Tag Team Racing. It is very powerful and once thrown, the cow will let out a loud "mooing" sound. Once hitting the ground, it will explode, leaving giant pieces of steaks airborne and a large cloud of smog present. Hitting either one of these will result in an instant KO.
A cow is also seen in two cutscenes. The first is in the "The Smell of Money" Die-O-Rama where the cow is Crash's cause of death, in which the cow farts in his face. A cow is later seen in the scene where Crash recovers the Tomb Town Power Gem in Tyrannosaurus Wrecks, where he uses the cow as a walkway toward the gem and the cow then falls into lava.
