Mission 01: Find Coco's Parts[]

Worst Contact (A)[]

[This cutscene is done in the style of a puppet show. It opens with a still frame of a Crash puppet carrying a defeated Cortex puppet in his mouth. Fade to a scene of Coco's puppet fiddling with the fallen Doominator while Crash mills about aimlessly.]

Coco: "Oh, stupid thing, work!"

Crunch: "Wow, we should clean this place up, childrens. It's been like a metric year!"

Coco: "Uh, who's gonna make us, you? I don't think so."

Crash: (snickers)

Crunch: "Okay, guess I'll just say some catchphrases. Drink lemonade, vitamin C."

[Coco pulls on a wire inside the Doominator and electrifies herself, catching on fire.]

Coco: "Ow! Ah! Hot hot hot!"

Crunch: "I gotcha."

[Crunch produces a fire extinguisher and extinguishes Coco.]

Coco: (screams)

Crunch: "Heheheheh!"

Coco: (sighs) "If I get this Doominator eye working, we'll have the best entertainment system of all time! It'll play games, watch movies, and dispense butter! It'll be the mother of all TiVos!"

Crash: "Wahoo!"

Crunch: "That does sound good. Butter? And where'd I get this? Short-term memory loss. Confused! And where'd I get this?"

Coco: "Crash, to get this thing working I'll need a bunch of parts. Here's a list. First up is the capacitron by my house."

[Crash takes the list in his mouth and walks away as the screen fades to black.]

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "To do your classic spin attack, quickly rotate the left analogue stick. Spinning is a great attack, and also a way to quickly collect mojo."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Nice one, Crash! That powerup will double the amount of mojo you collect for a short time, so hurry up and break stuff!"

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Crash, you've unlocked the spin upgrade. Now you can spin longer before getting dizzy."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "These voodoo dolls will unlock special rewards for you, Crash. Collect all of them to get tons of cool stuff."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Do a spin-jump and get some real height. Rotate the left analogue stick and press the X button."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Crash, this item indicates a mojo challenge for you. You will be constrained by special rules, but if you succeed, you'll gain a valuable treasure of mojo."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Crash, you need to spin on top of this to make it work. Luckily, I hear that spinning is something you do pretty well by now."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Crash, this is a spot where the spin drill move would be useful. Try doing it here to advance."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Crash, bandicoots are great diggers, and you are no exception. When you see diggable stuff like this, rotate the left analogue stick, then, the Square button to dig through the ground here.

Aku Aku (voiceover): "If you're hanging onto a ledge, you can fall down by pressing the Triangle button."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "It's a little windy here, Crash. You'll have to time your jump when the wind is low to safely reach the other side."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "To use this, Crash, you'll need a little help from a friend. Another person balancing on the other end would make it much easier."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Crash, go into your house on Wumpa Island and check out the concept art."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Well done! We've got all the parts!"

Aku Aku (voiceover): "This cave is a shortcut home, Crash. Let's get going."

Parts delivered (L)[]

Coco: "Finally, Crash. Gimme this stuff and let's fire this sucker up! Watch us some NASCAR."

Crunch: "Yeah, turning left."

N Faux Mercial (A)[]

[This cutscene is animated in the style of an infomercial. It opens with N. Brio standing against a red background, burdened by the many devices he's carrying.]

Narrator: "Are you tired of having too many gadgets cluttering your life?"

N. Brio: "There's got to be a simpler solution."

[Wipe to Cortex, who is in a studio wearing a bald cap and Groucho glasses.]

Cortex: "And now there is! Ladies and gentlemutants, I present to you: the NV!

Cortex: "Access any file! Talk to your disgusting friends! Watch pay-per-view! And julienne fries!"

[He shoves a potato in his ear and fries come out the other end. He eats one, then gags and spits it out.]

Cortex: "Ew, waxy." (coughs) "And it's certainly not an evil plan. What do you think of that, audience?"

[An audience of Ratnicians clap nervously, as they are being held at gunpoint by Stenches. Cut back to Cortex and a Znu who is wearing a banana peel on its head.]

Cortex: "Bad credit? No credit? Disgusting personal habits? Just put on a helmet already!"

[N. Brio appears and puts on an NV.]

N. Brio: "Yes! Now I have more time to devote to my hobbies, like falconry and classical cheeses. Thank you, NV, for giving me... technological bliss."

[A falcon poops on his head. The NV is shown against a glowing background.]

Cortex: "But wait, you revolting peons! There's more! I just... can't think of it right now."

[Cut back to Cortex.]

Cortex: "Now how much would you expect to pay for this technological superiority? Let's hear some guesses, sheeple!"

[Cut back to the audience, who are reading off of cards.]

Znu: "Eleventy-thousand dineros."

Ratnician: "Twenty to the square root of itself in currency... or more."

Other Ratnician: "Uh, sir, uh, begging your pardon but I, uh, think I have a defective card, 'cause uh... it says nothing!"

[He is vaporized by a Stench. Cut to Cortex.]

Cortex: "It's my great pleasure to announce that this handsome product will arrive at the doors of Wumpa Island inhabitants free of charge!"

[A Znu is shown delivering an NV set to a Bratgirl. She puts it on and blasts him with a laser function it apparently has. Cut to a preview of other products.]

Narrator: "From the people who brought you the electric spoon and I Can't Believe It's Not Tolstoy!

[A Bratgirl takes a bite from the spoon and gets electrocuted. A Ratcicle falls asleep trying to read a book.]

"Call now and you'll also recieve Neckbeard-in-a-Can!"

[A Ratnician is shown looking dejected near some Bratgirls who are ignoring him.]

Narrator: "Got a problem? Spray some hair on it!"

[The Neckbeard-in-a-Can is magically sprayed on his neck, causing the girls to flock to him. The background changes to a glowing spiral that is briefly interrupted by a flashing image of Cortex relaxing on the beach.]

Narrator: "Stare into the dancing lights! Stare and dream!" (scream) "Stare and dream! Get your NV today."

[The heads of the NV's customers are shown against a starry background, which is interrupted by a flashing image of N. Brio wearing a bath towel.]

Narrator: "Soon to be available everywhere but Arkansas."

Coco and Crunch (L)[]

Coco: "Wow! That thing looked amazing! We should totally get us some."

Crunch: "Yeah! Games! Messaging! Dancing lights."

NVs arrive (G)[]

Aku Aku: "Mail call!"

Coco: "Yay! Gimme gimme gimme!"

Coco: "Oh my God! Somebody sent us NVs!"

[They put them on.]

N Coming Message (A)[]

[This cutscene is animated in a psychedelic style. Coco and Crunch are standing in the yard, wearing their NVs.]

Coco: "This is ultra-cool. I'm sending Crunch a text message."

Crunch: "I just got a text message. From Coco! I'mma reply."

[Crash attempts to touch the NV, but it shocks him.]

Crash: (cries out in pain)

Aku Aku: "I... guess it doesn't like you, Crash?"

[Crash pokes the NV with a stick. It shocks him again and he disintegrates into a pile of ash.]

Crash: (cries out in pain)

[Aku Aku puts on a helmet, but it doesn't fit.]

Aku Aku: "I'll be honest, guys. I don't see what the big deal is."

Coco: "Oh, oh! Now I'm recieving four hundred text messages a minute from ordained clergy!"

[Suddenly, N. Gin and his Ratnician underlings materialize into view.]

N. Gin: (barks)

[Aku Aku cringes. Crash gets ready for a fight, but is weakened by the shocks he's gotten.]

N. Gin: "I... I forgot what I was going to say. Wait! I got it! Kill the bandicoots with violence! And new holes! A-hah."

[He dematerializes. The Ratnicians cackle and advance.]

Aku Aku: "Come on, everyone! We've got company."

Crunch: "Can't talk, watching monkeys! Look at the monkey! Oh, right in his own mouth."

Aku Aku: "Looks like it's just you and me, Crash."

Aku Aku's commentary (G)[]

[The camera pans over Crash's house, over to the western bridge.]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "N. Gin got away. We've got to find him, Crash."

Mission 02: Find N. Gin[]

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Crash, he looks pretty tough. If he's blocking your attacks, you must use a charged attack to smash through it."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Good job, Crash!"

Aku Aku (voiceover): "These enemies are strong, Crash, but you're a lot faster. Press the Triangle button at the right time to dodge their blow."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "That's one down, two to go, Crash!"

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Nicely done, Crash! Your speed is your greatest asset when fighting big things like that."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Okay Crash, now this enemy is going to do a heavy attack. Time your dodge and counter, and take him out!"

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Brilliant, Crash! I'm so proud of you."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Hmm! You can freeze sparkling water with this titan. Give it a try now."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Oh snap! That powerup lets you do four times the damage for a short time! Hurry up and hit somebody!"

Aku Aku (voiceover): "You can use your sneeze attack to easily freeze blasts of water."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "You can freeze flowing water blasts, then jump on them with your titan."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Crash, you just unlocked a health upgrade. Now watch that health bar grow. A little bit, anyway."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "When you freeze water blasts, you can use a heavy attack to break through them."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "I smell evil and lunacy on the wind. N. Gin must be up ahead somewhere."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "I think there's someone inside here, Crash. Go take a look."

N Trapment (A)[]

[This cutscene is done in the style of an old black-and-white film. It opens with a still frame of N. Gin casting a shadow onto the wall, then fades into the inside of his hideout. N. Gin is watching something through his telescope.]

Crash: (clears throat)

N. Gin: "What are you doing here? Get out of my special place! I haven't cleaned... or shaved! You weren't supposed to see it like this."

Aku Aku: "N. Gin, what are you even doing here?"

Crash: (confused noise)

N. Gin: "When Doctor Cortex escaped, he left me here. But I have brains! And desires! I will not be ignored! I have been watching you and your delicious sister."

Aku Aku: "Delicious?"

N. Gin: "Precious! I meant precious! (I'm gonna eat her.) Watch! Watch bandicoots, and collect information!"

Aku Aku: "Oh, you've gotta be kidding me."

N. Gin: "And when Cortex is triumphant, I will be rewarded! With glories and showers of presents, like a million Kwanzaas! A-haah! And I, N. Gin, will be made king of Wumpa Island. I'mma be like Serpentor."

Aku Aku: "Ugh. You're totally nuts. Punch him in the throat."

[Crash walks towards N. Gin angrily.]

N. Gin: "Not my throat! I need that for swallowing!" (sobs, retches) "Guards!"

[A group of Ratnicians forcibly escorts Crash and Aku Aku out of the building.]

N Is for Evil (A)[]

[This cutscene is also done in the style of a black and white film. Crash, Aku Aku and N. Gin are all face-to-face inside the hideout.]

Aku Aku: "We've gotta stop meeting like this, N. Gin."

N. Gin: "Wait, stop! Leave me alone! I am too pretty to be throwing punches. For I have been watching and studying you for a lonely year now, with only these idiot rats as company!"

Ratnician: "That's not very nice, boss."

N. Gin: "Quiet, Tina! Or I shall give you the back of my missile!"

Aku Aku: "I'm only gonna say this once, N. Gin. Get off our island."

N. Gin: "I'm sorry, I'm not here to take your message right now. Please leave a message after the beep. Beep!"

Crash: (growls)

N. Gin: "I'm going, I'm going. It was worth a shot."

Aku Aku: "Let's see what Crunch and Coco are up to. Probably still stuck in their idiotic headsets."

[He looks through the telescope to see Crunch and Coco hanging out in their yard, still wearing the NVs.]

Crunch: "This is increditasticular. I'm getting up-to-the-minute weather reports. It's hot."

Coco: "And I'm attending a symposium on the effect of Hungry Hungry Hippos on children."

[The NVs begin to shake.]

Crunch: "Uh, are they supposed to be doing that?"

Coco: "Ugh, probably a feature. Don't worry about it."

[The NVs begin to spark.]

Crunch: "I feel funny. Not 'ha-ha' funny neither. Foooold your laundry!"

Coco: "Yeaargh!"

[Coco and Crunch are transformed into slavering beasts.]

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "We've got to hurry back and help Coco and Crunch! Get moving, boy!

Mission 03: Save Coco and Crunch[]

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Crash, I can store your titan for you so you can take him along. Try it now."

Confronting Coco and Crunch (G)[]

[The camera pans over the basketball court on top of the Doominator as Crash and Aku Aku arrive. The mutated bandicoots snarl at them. Crash attempts to pull Crunch's NV away, but pokes him in the eye instead.]

Crunch: "Ooooh! Don't touch my gizmo! It's fantabulous."

[He runs away.]

Aku Aku: "Crunch! Come back!"

Coco: (snarls)

[Coco leaps in front of them as Crunch escapes. She then hops into her basketball-launching machine and activates it.]

Versus Coco (L)[]

When Coco attacks[]

  • "I'm taking over!"
  • "I'll tear you up like a math test!"
  • "May the best blonde win!"
  • "Some hero you are."
  • "Cha-bung!"
  • "Hi-ya!"
  • "Booyah!"
  • "More stang on that one. Eww."
  • "Some are just born to win, Crash!"
  • "I bet I'm in trouble now."
  • "Oh, just block, you big baby!"
  • "Don't worry about it. I've beat people much smarter than you."

When hit by a normal basketball[]

  • "Bah! My eye!"
  • "Boy, what are you thinking?"
  • "Ow, uh, I'll just walk it off, uh."
  • "I'm gonna cry!"
  • "Ow, that smarted!"
  • "Ha, ha! You'll be the new star of the series at this rate!"
  • "You manic!"
  • "Ouch!"
  • "Hey! That'd better not have left a mark."
  • "Ow, ow, ow!"
  • "What is your malfunction?"
  • "You are playing too rough!"
  • "Ohhh, watch what you're doing, jerk bag!"
  • "Ooh, ooh, it stung!"

When hit by a flaming basketball[]

  • "Gross, I'm sweating!"
  • "Ehh, it burns! It burns!"
  • "You treat your sister like this?"
  • "This makes no sense!"
  • "This is ridiculous!"
  • "Stop, drop, and roll!"
  • "Ehh, hot, hot hot!"
  • "I'm boiling!"
  • "At least it's a dry heat!"
  • (screeches)
  • "No worrying."
  • "I'm not feeling the love here!"

When attacked directly[]

  • "You can't take my new toy!"
  • "I will destroy you for this!"
  • "Free me now!"
  • "I must escape!"
  • "I can't use my NV! Not fair!"
  • "Hurry! So pointy!"
  • "Can't move. Totally unfair!"
  • "Stop doing that!"
  • "Leave me alone! Really!"
  • "Just don't hit me now! That'd be unfair."

Aku Aku's commentary[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Crash, did you know that if you time an attack just right, you can hit back projectiles? Well, you do now."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Crash, don't forget that you can use your creature to freeze water in places like this."

Clepto-Braniac (A)[]

[This cutscene is drawn in the style of American comic books. A still frame is shown of Crash and Cortex standing on either side of the screen, with the word "POW" written between them. It then fades to the basketball court. Coco, defeated, reverts to her normal self.]

Coco: "Uh, hello?"

Aku Aku: "Coco! You're back to normal. The NV loaded you up with some sort of dark mojo. I could feel my brother's influence pervading you."

Coco: "Aw, but it was so cool. Are you sure it was nefarious?"

Aku Aku: "Oh yeah. You practically grew horns."

Coco: "Aw, fudge! Well now I'm mad. The best gizmo in ages is evil!"

Aku Aku: "Crunch is still under the NV's control. We need to find where he's going."

Coco: "Relax, boys. I've got a plan."

[She leaps down from the Doominator.]

Coco: "I'll use the eye to hack into the villains' network. Just gimme a sec. Think I've got something. There's a video posted in Cortex's blog."

Aku Aku: "Cortex has a blog?"

Coco: "Oh yeah. All the cool kids do it now. Well, they did two years ago, anyway."

Aku Aku: "Really? I never heard of that."

Coco: "Yeah, big shock. Watch this..."

The Big Twist! (A)[]

[This cutscene is also drawn in a comic book style. Cortex enters the scene from a door in the Space Head, where he is holding a meeting.]

Cortex: "Ugh! There was a piece of lettuce in the urinal. Who eats a sandwich while going to the bathroom? Seriously. Anywho, minions! I stand before you reborn! Renewed! Recommitted to evil!"

[He throws a water balloon at a Ratnician in the audience.]

Ratnician: "Augh!"

Cortex: "And, I've made up with an old colleague. Join me in welcoming Nitrus Brio!"

[N. Brio emerges from a port in the floor.]

N. Brio: "Yes, it is I, N. Brio! My name sounds like a fetus. Hm. No doubt you all remember me as the creator of the Evolvo-Ray!"

Uka Uka: "That was him? I thought Cortex did that."

N. Brio: "Of course it was me. I invented the Evolvo-Ray, and mutagenetic techniques still used by that treacherous Cortex today! I. Was in. The first. GAME!"

[N. Brio becomes large and green, then drinks his mutagen to return to normal.]

N. Brio: "Mm. Lovely mutagen. So good. And I'm very happy to be back."

Uka Uka: "Yes. It's been forever since we've done some old-school evil."

Cortex: "Oh, and I've got some old-school evil in mind. Allow me to present the NV!"

[A cloth is raised off a table, revealing a Sludge wearing an NV.]

N. Brio: "That looks totally awesome. I designed it and I want four of them."

Cortex: "Best of all, with it I can create the most powerful mutants ever! And ones totally under my control. Watch."

[Cortex pushes a button that activates the NV. The Sludge roars and comes to life.]

Cortex: "Totally cool, n'est-ce pas? Check this out."

[He pushes the button again, and the Sludge grabs Uka Uka, restraining him.]

Uka Uka: "Cortex! What is the meaning of this? Release me immediately."

Cortex: "I used to run this operation! And it's time I did again."

N. Brio: "Yes, go for it, Doctor Cortex. Eye of the tiger. Hadōken! Paper covers rock. But paper can't stop rocks. It makes no sense!"

Uka Uka: "I will destroy you for this, Cortex. Your life is forfeit!"

Cortex: "Oh my. Talk about a two-dimensional bad guy."

N. Brio: "Yes. I wrote that line earlier."

[They high-five.]

Cortex: "Look, it's nothing personal. I simply need a source of bad mojo to fuel the NV. And you're it! N. Brio, I need you to keep the bandicoots busy. Use our... secret plan."

N. Brio: "Yes. So secret, it's not been invented yet. But wait, Cortex. How will we get these devices onto mutants' heads?"

Cortex: "Oh, that's the easy part. We'll give it to them!"

[Cortex laughs as the room fills up with green smoke.]

Coco's suggestion (G)[]

Coco: "Those NVs could be sent all over the island by now. We need to find a way to take them out at the source."

Aku Aku: "How do we do that?"

Coco: "Well, I think I know someone we can ask. Ugh, can't believe I'm gonna say this, but... let's go talk to Nina."

[Crash and Aku Aku balk at this.]

Aku Aku: "Coco! I think that NV gave you brain damage."

Coco: "Look, she'll be on the outs with Cortex after all her shenanigans. Face it, she's our only lead."

Crash: (affirmative gibberish)

Mission 04: Find Information on Nina[]

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Crash, in places like this, you can climb straight up! See? You don't have to jump everywhere. Just most places."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Remember that you can store your titan in order to take them with you across spaces that only you can navigate."

Bratgirl introduction (G)[]

Bratgirl: "Move faster, mutant slaves! We need all mutants brought under NV control."

Ratcicles: (growl)

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "We need to find out where Nina's school is, Crash. Try talking to the local mutants."

Mission 04 complete (L)[]

Elderly Ratcicle: "You wanna talk to me? Oh, wa-diddly, that's fantabulous. Nobody talks to me since Grenada. There's a prison near here! Weird place, spooky place too. I stayed there a spell. Nice view, but lousy ambience. I wouldn't go there. Everybody but me that went there never came back! Those scary girls made sure of that."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "That prison sounds pretty weird, Crash. There might be some link between it and Evil School."

Mission 06: Find Information on Nina's School[]

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "All right Crash, you're inside. Try to find out something about Nina's school."

Bratgirls scheming (G)[]

Bratgirl: "Soon we will return to the Evil School's secret northern entrance! This haul of freaks and mutants is perfect for the Evil School science fair! Nina will be doomed to suffer in mediocrity."

Aku Aku: "Hear that, Crash? The entrance to the school must be near the Rat village."

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Let's go to the Ratcicle's kingdom, Crash."

Mission 07: Return to Ratcicle Kingdom[]

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Oh, you're gonna like this one, Crash. This titan can throw enemies around using the power of its mind. How can he do it? Science."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "See if there's something you can move around using this telekinetic guy's powers."

Mission 07 complete (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Evil School must be on the other side of this gate, Crash. I think we need a mutant that spins to open it."

Melvin: "If it's not too much trouble, Crash, can you go to the desert nearby? Lots of scary bads for you to fight. They spin, too."

Mission 08: Return to Wumpa Island[]

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "We should head back to Wumpa Island, Crash. You can take the route we originally travelled to get here."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Crash, we need to go to the temple coliseum. You have to pass through it to reach the desert.

Mission 09: Reach the Desert[]

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "This is the place, Crash. I think we'll need one of those telekinetic mutants to get inside, Crash."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "We're going to need some serious mutant muscle to get to the desert. This guy will do nicely."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Well done, Crash."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "We made it, Crash. Now we just need to get a Roller so we can open those doors."

Mission 10: Find RhinoRoller Village[]

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "We found them. Oh. They don't seem too happy to see us, though."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Let's get this Roller back to Wumpa Village."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "To come to a sudden stop while on a Roller, press the L1 button. Screeching to a stop can save you from falling off a ledge."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Roller can dash into enemies with devastating results. To do this, press the Square button."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "A Roller can take you to places other enemies can't. He can activate Roller Switches and boost up steep curves."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "These Rollers seem free from evil control, Crash. See if they know a way back to Wumpa."

RhinoRoller cub (L)[]

RhinoRoller cub: "Halt! Who goes there? I am commander... of the one! We defend the village from the spiky ones! Normally our parents do it, but they're away being crazy."

Mission 11: Defeat Spikes[]

RhinoRoller cub (L)[]

RhinoRoller cub: "We gotta keep making noises! The spikies don't know that we're so little, so we're trying to scare them off."

RhinoRoller cub: "You know, I think the old one likes you. Likes you, if you know what I mean! I think you do. Rrreow." (coughs)

RhinoRoller elder (L)[]

RhinoRoller elder: "Hey there, good-looking. You look like the kind of bandicoot that appreciates sandpaper. Been kinda lonely since all the hunky Rollers packed up and left, heh."

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Let's go, Crash."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "I can sense that this door will need something very special to open it. We'd better keep moving."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "The Rollers fixed the bridge, Crash. That old lady wanted to do you a favor!" (chuckles)

Mission 12: Get to Nina's School[]

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Okay. We should be able to make it back to Ratcicle Kingdom with the Roller now. Head down, power through, Crash. We need to hurry."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Keep moving forward, Crash. We need to get back to the Ratcicle Kingdom."

Evil School and You (A)[]

[This cutscene is done in black-and-white, in the style of an educational cartoon. It begins with a shot of the Evil Public School exterior.]

Narrator: "Welcome, boys and girls and as-yet undetermined sexes, to Evil Public School."

[Cut to a group of public school students, all scowling or smirking at the camera. One of them lights some dynamite under another student.]

Narrator: "Here at Evil Public School 101, you'll learn the basic evil principles that drive society, like mad science, mad mathematics, gym class, and waterboarding."

[A brief clip of each of these activities is shown.]

Narrator: "At EPS 101, students learn the value of evil socialization."

[An upset-looking Nina walks into a group of students armed with water guns.]

Narrator: "Hey, look, everyone! A new student! Welcome the new student, everyone!"

[They all spray her.]

Narrator: "Yes, the new student's life is ruined. Laugh and point at the new girl!"

[The students taunt Nina. A missile hits her in the back of the head, which she kicks and stubs her toe on.]

Narrator: "Do you think you have what it takes to be a student in Evil Public School? Well you don't. Classes are full and we hate new people!"

[Nina spits on the missile, which explodes.]

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "This is the place, Crash. We need to find a way inside, with punching."

Forbidden Love (A)[]

[Crash and Aku Aku fall into Nina's classroom from a hole in the ceiling.]

Crash: "Oh. Heh heh." (gibberish)

Nina: "Crash? What are you doing here? Leave me alone! I hate you! You ruined my life."

[She slaps them both.]

Aku Aku: "So... how's it going?"

Nina: "How's it going...? How's it going? I'm stuck in Evil Public School now. Oh, I used to be the queen of Madame Amberley's private school. And now I'm stuck with the dregs of society. All because of you!"

Aku Aku: "Yeah. So anyway, we need your help."

Nina: "What?"

Aku Aku: "Your uncle has been using a new kind of evil mojo to control mutants. And he's got Crunch! We need to find him and help him."

Nina: "Oh, so you need my help? That's so cute. Don't hurt your butt on the way out the door."

[She pushes them towards the exit.]

Aku Aku: "Please, Nina! We'll do anything."

Nina: "Anything? Really?"

Aku Aku: (sighs) "Yes."

Nina: "Kiss."

Aku Aku: "What?"

Nina: "Yeah, kiss. Right now. It will amuse me."

[Crash and Aku Aku almost kiss, but are interrupted when Nina takes a photo.]

Nina: (giggles, snorts) "Losers. Okay, I've got an evil science fair project to finish, and you two lovebirds can help me out."

[Crash pukes off-screen.]

Mission 13: Protect Nina's School Project[]

Nina's help (G)[]

Nina: "Ah, victory. Feels so good. So good!"

Aku Aku: "Yeah, yeah, we helped you out, now tell us what we need to know."

Nina: "Sure thing there, shingle. Uncle Cortex made up with his old lab partner, N. Brio."

Aku Aku: "N. Brio?"

Nina: "Uncie Cortex talks a big game, but N. Brio's the guy that actually built everything. And luckily for you, my science project thingy tells me exactly where he is. Now, run along to the other side of the island. I've got new evil plans to start."

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Nina must've meant that big metal gate in the desert. Let's get going."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Talk to that guy, Crash. See what he knows."

Attack on Wumpa (L)[]

Ratcicle Hero's son: "I keep hearing about scary mutants attacking Wumpa Island right near your house. Scarier than us, I mean."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "We better get back home, Crash. Nobody invades our turf and gets away with it."

Mission 14: Defend Wumpa[]

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Crash, we've got to get back home, fast. Get moving, boy!"

Aku Aku (voiceover): "This looks like trouble."

Spike Hero quest (G)[]

[The camera pans over Crash's destroyed house, over to the western bridge.]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "The only way to scare off those bad mutants will be to take out their leader."

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "While controlling an enemy with a ranged attack, hold the L1 button to use precision aiming."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "This must be the key to that huge lock we found in the desert. Time to go back to that gate, Crash."

Mission 15: Travel to the Junkyard[]

Abuse, Misuse, Recycle (A)[]

[N. Brio is seated in an armchair in the Junkyard. There is a blackboard next to him.]

N. Brio: "Greetings, little peons which I invented."

[He shows a few photos of various strange creatures to the camera.]

N. Brio: "You see before you a glorious history of evil devices that I, me, invented. Over time, the disgusting heroes of this world—which I invented! Me! Not Cortex, read your bible, I wrote it!"

[N. Brio drinks some mutagen and draws on the chalkboard as he talks.]

N. Brio: "Heroes like lazy bandicoots just leave these wonderful toys to rot where they fall. But Doctor Cortex, who says he invented many things—liar! says 'Hurry! Build me a Space Head, and many NV devices!' So! I have invented... recycling! Remember the N. Brio patented phrase: reuse, recycle, revenge! I created slinkies! Stop playing with them because they're mine!"

[A chalk drawing of N. Brio walks over a pile of garbage.]

N. Brio: "You see before you an ocean of wrecked dreams. My dreams. But from this ocean, Doctor Cortex has asked me to harpoon the white whale of evil. Recycling shall destroy the world! And I, as its inventor, shall get the credit."

[Doodle-N. Brio holds up a Lite-Brite.]

N. Brio: "Look, Lite-Brite. I didn't invent this. Burt Meyer did. It's not evil, why's it in the pile?"

[He throws it away, hitting a drawing of Cortex.]

Cortex: "Yes, that's right, you little fools! Evil recycling gives me everything I need to build and distribute NVs! Ugh, look... there's got to be a better picture of me."

[The real N. Brio erases and redraws Cortex.]

Cortex: "Enter my recycling program, Crash. The recycling program... of doom! ...Oh, that's good. I look butch."

Mission 16: Find Crunch and N. Brio[]

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "This guy is a slippery one. He can morph into the ground so nobody can touch him. When you're morphed low you can move underneath certain objects."

Sludge salesman (L)[]

Sludge salesman: "Hey, man, thanks for taking care of those bad dudes for us. I was sitting on a treasure of merchandise and couldn't move it."

Sludge salesman: "This part of the Junkyard is a gourmet for smart squishies like me that love to lurk."

Conjoined Sludge (L)[]

Middle head: "Crash! Fabulous! You come help us, no? You chase off the bad Sludges what are trapped by the mojo."

Mission 17: Save Crunch[]

Begin mission (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Let's go, Crash."

Sludge salesman (L)[]

Sludge salesman: "After N. Brio, those bad Sludges have been building weird stuff over there. This whole 'death ray' this, 'world-destroying' that. These people just need more chicken sandwiches."

Conjoined Sludge (L)[]

Middle head: "[unintelligible] N. Brio use NV to enslave Sludges. Put Sludges to work building death toys. Take away best junk from Sludge home."

Super Number One Bandicoot! (A)[]

[The cutscene is drawn in a chibi style. It opens with a still frame of Crash and Aku Aku smiling together, then fades to them, Crunch, and N. Brio in the boss arena.]

Crunch: "Crash! Stay away, little buddy. I can't control myself!"

Aku Aku: "Just take the helmet off already!"

Crunch: "You don't understand! So awesome! Monkeys!"

N. Brio: "Hahahaha! Yes, fight your 'little buddy'. Teach him who invented who! Strike him with your large man hand!"

Crunch: "I obey! Eat! Enough! Fiber!"

Versus Crunch (L)[]

When a missile system is destroyed[]

  • "Hi, little Crashy! Goin' bad again. Chew with your mouth closed! That's nasty."
  • "That one busted up good!"
  • "Oh, wait!"
  • "You made me mad! That makes me mad!" (growls)
  • "Doing some damage now!"

  • "My legs! I'm gonna be quadra-pilates!"
  • "That's repugnified!"
  • "My therapist told me to avoid this! Rrrr..."
  • "Crash's got some kick in him now! Kick with his fists!"
  • "Crash! How could you? Besides in the literal sense!"
  • "This is humilterrifying!"
  • "Hoo! That was a good one! Really shortened my change! A nickel came out! Tickle, tickle."
  • "It's for my own good. Tie your shoes! Rabbit in the hole."
  • "I'm being defeated. By little fuzzy! Comb your hair. Looks like a broom now."
  • "Uhh, I think I broke something!"
  • "That was a biiig shot!"
  • "Darn it! I'm in pain!"
  • "Crunch needs a hug!"
  • "I never learned to read!"
  • "Crunch don't feel so good."
  • "That hurt. Little bit."

Aku Aku's advice[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "We need to use Crunch against N. Brio to defeat him, Crash. Try to jack him when you get the chance."

While jacked[]

  • "Who's ready for some double trouble?"
  • "Time for the Crunch to win! And by extension, Crash."
  • "Form of: a monkey-pounding machine!"
  • "Now with twice the trouble."
  • "I can see clearly now. The rain is gone. Heh-heh."
  • "That was so bad, you could see us on the Richter scale."
  • "Time to be bad! In a good way."
  • "Tall, beautiful and strong, baby!"
  • "I am the greatest. The greatest! Usually."
  • "That was so pretty, I could kiss myself. Ana-platonically-correct."
  • "Bring it on, baby."
  • "Time to show them who the real champ is."
  • "Ooh, that's the good stuff."
  • "And Crunch is on the case!"

When N. Brio is attacked[]

  • "You've damaged my commemorative plates!"
  • "My protective casing will protect me. With... redundant protection."
  • "Oh, great. Now the radio's stuck on [unintelligible] Western."
  • "I blame lactose intolerant people everywhere."

Crunch Get! (A)[]

[This cutscene is also drawn in a chibi style. Crash, sitting on Crunch's back, tries to pull the NV off of him.]

Crunch: "Stop it, that's mine!"

[N. Brio leaps out of the fire and puts himself out.]

N. Brio: "Just swat him away, muscles!"

[Crash succeeds in taking the NV away and hops off. Crunch shrinks back to normal.]

Crunch: "Hey, I feel great! Got that monkey off my back. Thanks, little buddy!"

[Crash grabs Crunch and lifts him.]

Crunch: "No, really, I'm good now."

Crash: "Hi-ya!"

[Crash starts slamming Crunch into the ground. A monkey runs by.]

Crunch: "Stop it, please! Stop it, please! Ow, honestly, I'm much better. Ow! Lift with your legs, not with your back!"

[N. Brio watches, cringing as bones and various other objects fly in from off-screen.]

Aku Aku: "Well! I didn't think we'd meet again."

N. Brio: "Well, you were wrong, and I was right! As right as... Betamax! Why won't the world understand? We've got limitless bad mojo to power NVs!"

Aku Aku: "Bad mojo? How are you getting that?"

[N. Brio covers his mouth and mumbles.]

Aku Aku: "Start talking, mister. Crash likes Crunch, and look what he's doing to him."

[Crash lays down a detonator cable next to Crunch, who is tied up and surrounded by dynamite. Crash blows him up.]

N. Brio: "Cortex and I are in charge now, little fool! And your island is trapped by a device that I—"

Aku Aku: "That you invented, yeah, yeah, yeah. Come on Crash, looks like my brother's involved in this mess. You go on home, Crunch."

Crunch: "Yeah, think I'm leaking brain juice. Gonna lay down a while. Sleepy..."

[He falls down.]

Aku Aku: "And you! You clear out. You're not welcome. Come on, Crash. Let's go find my brother."

N. Brio: "This isn't the end! I invented endings. Why don't people take me seriously?"

[N. Brio walks down a road near a barn. He attempts to hitchhike on a passing truck, which ignores him.]

Episode 18: Travel to Mount Grimly[]

I'm Not Your Buddy, Guy (A)[]

[This cutscene is drawn in a style meant to imitate South Park. The opening resembles that of the show it's based on. It fades to a silhouette of Uka Uka, bound and hooked up to a mojo-milking machine. A silhouette of a Grimly climbs a ladder and begins force-feeding him cake.]

Uka Uka: "Agh! Ugh! Augh!"

[Another Grimly turns on a TV screen, revealing Cortex on the other side.]

Cortex: "Thanks. Finally answers the phone. Very classy. Not like I have anything better to do."

[The Grimly snarls resentfully.]

Cortex: "Oh, thanks for asking. I feel good. All this evil agrees with me. How's our little mojo battery doing?"

Uka Uka: "Augh!"

[A piece of cake falls on the floor.]

Uka Uka: "Cortex, you miserable traitor! I will have my reven—" (muffled speech)

Cortex: "Hah, fabulous. He's never looked better. Rubenesque, even. I was so tired of that guy. Felt like I married my mother. Not that I... thought about that."

Uka Uka: "Stealing my mojo to power your NVs! That's low even for you. But why do you keep feeding me cake? Agh!"

Cortex: "Oh, that. I just thought it would be mean. Seriously, you're never going to be able to eat cake again. Imagine that, life without cake."

Uka Uka: "You fiend!"

Cortex: "Gonna address the minions, excuse me. Listen up, Grimlies! Crash Bandicoot is on his way. No games, no foolishness. Find him and destroy him. Destroy him, for real! No death traps that take ten flipping hours."

[The Grimlies bow and hiss as they exit. One of them drops a piece of cake on the ground.]

Uka Uka: "Oh, oh... oh, that's... t-that's unsettling."

[The mitts on Cortex's monitor scoop up the cake.]

Cortex: "And guess what? Little Uka there's looking hungry."

Uka Uka: "Ew, gross, it's dirty! I'll get my revenge for this, Cortex!"

[Cortex shoves it in his face.]

Cortex: "Yes, yes, revenge. I'm not the one in the milking machine, milky... magoo. Cortex out."

Mission 19: Save Uka Uka[]

I'm Not Your Guy Friend (A)[]

[This cutscene is also drawn in the South Park style. Crash and Aku Aku find Uka Uka attached to the machine.]

Uka Uka: "Finally. Ugh! If I had nipples, they'd kill right now."

[Crash sets him free.]

Aku Aku: "My brother! What did they do to you?"

Uka Uka: "That treacherous dog Cortex stole my power! All my bad mojo has been drained and put into NVs that he sent all over the world."

Aku Aku: "All over the world?"

Uka Uka: "That little weasel of a scientist actually had a good idea for a change. However, I didn't realize it involved..."

Aku Aku: "...Milking you."

[Crash mimes milking a cow.]

Uka Uka: "Yes, milking me! Ha-ha, everybody enjoys a laugh at the evil mask! I will destroy Cortex for this, and you two short bus students will be the means of my vengeance."

Aku Aku: "Why should we help you? You're a jerk. Remember mom's birthday? You sent her socks. Honestly, who sends socks to a magic mask with no feet?"

Uka Uka: "You'll help me because if you restore my power, I will give you the means to reach Cortex's lair, and destroy his NVs forever."

[Crash bounces around the room and cheers.]

Aku Aku: "Fine, we'll restore your powers. Tell us what we have to do."

Uka Uka: "The voodoo bones of my mask have been stolen and given to the worst, most despicable mutants on the island. Get them back. Be my vengeance. I will use my power to let you move around quickly. You dummies probably walked everywhere. And, please... would you clean this cake off my face?"

[Crash does so.]

Crash: "Woo-hoo! Yahaha!"

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Crash, Grimlies have the power to slow down time. Your special bar will drain while it is active, so use it sparingly."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Destroy those mojo collectors to free my brother. They look pretty hefty, hefty, hefty though, so you need to jack a huge titan to break them."

Mission 20: Collect Uka's Bones: Uka's Vengeance[]

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Looks like this thing is one of those teleporters my brother was talking about. Hate that guy."

Snipe Hero quest (L)[]

RhinoRoller cub: "Crash, thank goodness you're here! One of our dumber cubs is gone. We think it got caught by a Snipe's gang! You've got to rescue it!"

Mission 21: Return to Uka Uka[]

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "That's all of them, Crash! Time to go back and see my brother."

Mission 22: Return to the Doominator[]

Aku Aku's commentary (L)[]

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Uka Uka somehow used his power to energize the old Doominator head, Crash."

Aku Aku (voiceover): "Let's go to Wumpa, Crash."

Mission 23: Defeat Cortex[]

Fists of Orange Fury (A)[]

[This cutscene is drawn in the style of an action anime. It opens with several shots of Crash, Cortex and associated characters posing, then cuts to the inside of the Space Head.]

Aku Aku: "Hello, Cortex."

Cortex: "I can't believe you dimtwits are trying to ruin my plans again. Seriously! Don't you have lives? Get a hobby! Woodworking or crocheting, something!"

Aku Aku: "You've got nothing left, Cortex. It's just you versus Crash."

[Crash strikes a pose and surrounds himself with glowing blue energy.]

Cortex: "Good. I want to settle this, man to mutant. I'm going to beat you, Crash, with my bare hands!"

[Cortex removes his coat, flexes, and strikes a pose. Crash and Aku Aku burst out in laughter.]

Aku Aku: "Oh no! Look out, Crash! Mister Hungry Pound's gonna get ya!"

Cortex: "Stop laughing. I'm serious! I'm going to slap some bandicoot!"

[Cortex shadowboxes a bit and makes noises.]

Aku Aku: "Right. Crash, love him up so we can go home."

Crash: (affirmative gibberish)

Cortex: "Oh, did I forget to mention I was going to cheat? I've got some of N. Brio's mutation formula here to even the odds."

[To their shock, Cortex drinks the entire beaker.]

Cortex: "Eugh! Oh, tastes like peppermint barf! Oh, hm, there's a hint of..."

[Cortex's eyes turn bloodshot. He transforms into a hulking beast and roars. Crash hesitates, then steels himself for the fight. A solar eclipse occurs. Unrelatedly, a mime performs in the streets of Paris.]

Cortex: (roars)

Versus Cortex (L)[]

When attacking[]

  • "Can't hide from me!"
  • "Finish him!"
  • "Come on, Crash. Let's see what you've got.

  • "The NV shall enslave the world!"
  • "I'm going to buy an overpriced resort."
  • "Now I feel beautiful! I mean, victorious!"

Home Pun (A)[]

[The final cutscene also is drawn in an anime style. Defeated, Cortex sobs openly and throws a tantrum.]

Cortex: "It's not fair, it's not fair!"

[His pounding the ground causes the ship's controls to spark and malfunction. He tears the steering wheel off its mount and breaks it in half.]

Cortex: "I want to win! It's my turn! Been trying for flipping years!"

Aku Aku: "Uh oh, Crash! I think he broke something!"

Crash: (worried gibberish)

[The Space Head starts to fall apart. Cortex's mutagen wears off.]

Cortex: "Oh no. What did I do? Where are my pants?"

Aku Aku: "Brace yourself, Crash! I think we're going down."

Crash: (yelps)

[A Znu walks in, eating a sandwich with lettuce.]

Cortex: "It was you! Ugh, no time to deal with that now. Disgusting freak!"

[Cortex pushes a button, and he and the Znu flee in an escape pod. The Space Head burns up in orbit, then crashes into a mountain on Wumpa Island, landing in the bandicoots' front yard. Crash and Aku Aku emerge from the wreckage unharmed.]

Aku Aku: "I can't believe we're okay!"

Coco: "Crash, down here! Great job, big brother."

Crunch: "Wow, we're really getting a lot of this evil junk all over the place."

Coco: "We're still not gonna clean up."

Aku Aku: (sighs) "I know, Coco, I know."

[Crash laughs, and the scene fades to black.]

Ratcicle Hero's son: "Now that daddy's home, I won't have to stay around protecting the village no more! I'll be free to start fires. Er, for research purposes, of course..."

  • "So Crash, uh... don't suppose you happen to have any list of, say, poorly guarded preschools lying around, hm?"
  • "If I needed a character reference for, say, a hypothetical court case, could I count on your support? Or are you gonna go all Smokey Bear on me?"
  • "You know who get a bad rap? Dingoes. Think about it. They just wanna take children screaming into the night."

With RhinoRoller

Elderly Ratcicle: "Hoo-ey! Hey, it's one of them roly poly mutants. They's mighty handy. They can get up to high places and stuff."

Elderly Ratcicle: "I sure wish I had one of them Roller fellas. I gots ideas for making waffles, and those things would come in right handy."

Elderly Ratcicle: "Honestly, I'm just thrilled about that thing. It's a serious piece of mutant."

Elderly Ratcicle: "Ooh, don't you get dizzy on that thing? I'm getting dizzy just looking at it. I also get dizzy looking at apples."

After Ratcicle Hero is freed

Elderly Ratcicle: "Nice having that big fella around again. [unintelligible]"

Elderly Ratcicle: "It's just so nice having the chief back. I never knew I'd miss the brutish psycho so much."

Elderly Ratcicle: "I wonder if things'll calm down around here. Not likely, I suppose; we're a little wound up, in case you didn't notice."

Elderly Ratcicle: "You want a dollar? Here, have a dollar. I got lots."

  • "Well, nothing left to do but stand around looking good. 'Cause I make this look real good."

Melvin: "It's gonna roll over and crush me! And I'm not even dressed for it!"

Melvin: "Oh, finally, something big enough to end my pain."

Melvin: "Oh, that's a large and unsavory-looking thing."

After Ratcicle Hero is freed

Melvin: "Oh, the chief is back. What a relief! Now people like myself won't be weighted down with lunch money all the time."

Melvin: "I'm not sure how we decided that guy's dad would be Chief. I think we just elected the one that hit the hardest."

  • "So! How's it going? Have you hit me recently? If not, feel free."
  • "I wish someone would go find my dad. I-I'm so alone."
  • "Later on, if you've got a minute, I'll introduce you to my trophy wife."

  • "You're turning me on... to self-defense programs."

After Spikes are defeated

RhinoRoller cub: "Yay, the Spikes are gone! Not that I couldn't have taken care of them eventually."

RhinoRoller cub: "The other cubs are very impressed with you, Crash. Honestly, just thrilled."

RhinoRoller cub: "Out of all the game heroes out there, you're probably my fifth favorite, and that's saying a lot."

N. Gin: "Eric would like to extend thanks to his family, friends, coworkers, casual acquaintances, casual Mondays, the Canadian Guild of Delicate [unintelligible]"—(laughs)—"he just rambles on from there.
