Profiles[]

Crash Bandicoot[]

Manual (NTSC-U)

"What can we say about this heroic, seriously agile, recently evolved marsupial that we haven't said all through this manual? Not much? Okay, well you might like to know that he really does enjoy a good tussle every now and then. And since this whole thing is for his girlfriend Tawna, so much the better!"[8]

Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back[]

Manual

"He's a marsupial on a mission! He's cool, he's brave and he's ready for action! He's a hero who believes, but he's no fool!"[9][10]

CTR: Crash Team Racing[]

Manual

"Crash is quite a hero and he's had plenty of practice beating bad guys. Crash's kart is a good all-round racer with an excellent balance of acceleration, top speed and handling."[11][12]

Crash Bash[]

Manual (NTSC-U)

"Every big event needs some star power to bring in the crowds. Dur big name is Crash "The Basher" Bandicoot representing Aku Aku and the forces for everything good. No one is faster, smarter and more agile than Crash. When riding a polar bear he zips in and out of the arena. He can execute a spin that'll knock any opponent off their feet or send crates spinning out of control. He's ready for battle. Are you?"[13]

Manual (PAL)

"CRASH BANDICOOT – the Blunder from Down-Under"[14]

Prima strategy guide

"What else can we say about this heroic, seriously agile, recently evolved marsupial that hasn't been said already? He's cool, he's brave and he’s ready for action... although you get the feeling he'd rather be napping in the sun."[15]

Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex[]

Manual

"Taken from his jungle paradise and subjected to Dr. Neo Cortex’s Evolvo-Ray, Crash was the pinnacle of Cortex's genetic manipulation. But as fate would have it, Crash was thrown out like garbage by Cortex for being a nice guy. Crash spends his time these days sunning himself by the seaside, and is called upon from time to time to thwart any World Domination plans Dr. Neo Cortex might have in the works. Can Crash do it again?"[16]

Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure and Crash Bandicoot 2: N-Tranced[]

Manual

"Our hero! Crash might not seem like an ideal champion to save the entire planet, but this is one tough bandicoot."[17][18]

Crash Nitro Kart[]

Manual

"Crash is strapping himself in his kart, getting ready to lead Team Bandicoot to victory! His medium build makes him an all-around racer with exceptional acceleration."[19]

Website

"Our loveable [sic] Bandicoot is strapping on his racing gloves once again to lead Team Bandicoot to victory! His medium build makes him an all-around racer with exceptional acceleration."[20]

Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage and Spyro Orange: The Cortex Conspiracy[]

Manual

"This wild and crazy guy must search high and low for ways to defeat Cortex and Ripto. But this time, he is not alone on his quest."[21][22]

Crash Twinsanity[]

Manual

"Crash was an ordinary bandicoot whose life was forever changed in a failed experiment performed upon him by the evil Dr. Cortex. He would be happy to spend his days basking in the warm sun, but adventure will not leave him alone."[23]

Crash Boom Bang![]

In-Game

"A bit of a bumbling hero, Crash is always saving the world."

Crash Village[]

In-Game

"Crash was an ordinary south pacific bandicoot until the evil Dr. Cortex used his Evolvo-Ray in an attempt to create a mutant henchman. Crash refused to work with Cortex and instead smashed Cortex's lab and defeated the mad doctor's evil schemes. Crash would be happy to spend his days basking in the sun but his danger-loving, fearless nature and his love of a good fight with a bad guy keep him busy. Crash is very emotional, quick to laugh and quick to cry. Crash rarely seeks out trouble but trouble always seems to come Crash's way."[24]

Crash Nitro Kart 2[]

In-Game

"Our Bandicoot is a racer with a good balance of skills."

Crash Bandicoot: On the Run![]

Promo

"He's always here to keep the multiverse safe from crazed scientists, mad mutations and even a twisted, buck-toothed doppelganger. When it comes down to it, no one can stop this stylin', profilin', motorcycle-riding, jetpack-flying, bazooka-firing son of a... well, bandicoot."[25]
