Crash Bash Logo

This page is comprised of transcriptions of all the cutscenes in Crash Bash.


  • Each cutscene is in chronological order of appearance in regular gameplay.
  • Cutscenes are split between the Good and Evil routes. The intro is placed in its own section as it is the same for both.
    • There is also a third Neutral section for a two-player team made of one good and one evil member. The Neutral route does not have its own ending due to the tie-breaker. Neutral cutscenes for clearing the first and second warp rooms do not exist, with the game simply using the cutscenes of whichever team player one's character is on.


In the Hyperspace Temple, Aku Aku and Uka Uka debate on whether good or evil is greater.

  • Aku Aku: "Uka Uka, how many times must you be told? You cannot defeat me!"
  • Uka Uka: "I have heard enough of your shallow wisdom. It is I who is the strongest, and it is evil that will ultimately prevail!"
  • Aku Aku: "This bickering can go on no longer. We must resolve this once and for all time."
  • Uka Uka: "Hmm... for once, feeble brother, I agree with you. We shall settle this argument. Prepare to fight!"

Uka Uka lunges at Aku Aku, only for Aku Aku to stop him.

  • Aku Aku: "No, Uka Uka! The Ancients would not allow it. There can be no malice between us."
  • Uka Uka: "Hmph! A contest, then. Good against evil. Your players against mine!"
  • Aku Aku: "Very well. Summon the teams."

Fade to Crash peacefully sleeping in a field, before disappearing in a flash of light. Cortex is then shown in his laboratory, before being taken in turn. Both appear before Aku Aku and Uka Uka at the temple.

  • Uka Uka: "Crash! Cortex! Welcome!"

Coco appears alongside Crash. Tiny, N. Brio, Rilla Roo, Dingodile, and Koala Kong all appear alongside Cortex.

  • Uka Uka: "You and your friends have been summoned here to do battle. To do battle between good and evil. A battle to the end. May the best player win!"
  • Aku Aku: "Uka Uka, this is not a fair contest! You have too many players! If your confidence in evil is so great, you can win with equal sides. You must surrender two of your team."
  • Uka Uka: "Very well. Choose."

Tiny and Dingodile are teleported to Aku Aku's side.

  • Aku Aku: "Let the games begin!"


First warp room cleared[]

Aku Aku is shown floating in space.

Aku Aku: "Well done. You have completed the challenges that have been set for you in this warp room. To progress to the next set of games, you must defeat the mighty Papu Papu."

Second warp room cleared[]

Aku Aku: "You are progressing very well. More challenges lie ahead in the next warp room. Show us you are worthy of them by defeating the mechanical bears."

Third warp room cleared[]

Aku Aku: "I suspect this tournament may not be all that it seems. Guard your crystals well. Meanwhile, you must proceed by perfecting your skills in the tank."

Fourth warp room cleared[]

Aku Aku: "Thank goodness you have made it this far! I now believe Uka Uka has been fooling us. You must succeed in the final challenge before I can safely hide the crystals you have won."

Good Ending[]

  • Uka Uka: "NOOOOOOOOOO! It cannot be!"

Back in the hyperspace temple, Uka Uka cries out in rage over his loss. Cortex and N. Brio back away from him, afraid.

  • Uka Uka: "What sort of trickery was used to defeat I, the great Uka Uka?!"

Aku Aku determinedly floats up above a box full of crystals.

  • Aku Aku: "No trickery. No cheating. Your secret plan to steal the crystals has failed!"
  • Uka Uka: "You knew!"
  • Aku Aku: "Of course I knew. And, as I predicted, good will always triumph in the end."

Uka Uka glares down at Cortex and N. Brio.

  • Uka Uka: "You have failed me for the last time!"

Cortex and N. Brio flinch and back further away.

Uka Uka: "You will pay for your INCOMPETENCE!"

Cortex and Brio yell in fear and turn to run as Uka Uka begins to charge up an attack. Meanwhile, Aku Aku presses a button on the wall. Uka Uka is distracted and stops his attack.

  • Uka Uka: "What are you doing?"

A small hatch in the wall behind Aku Aku begins to slowly slide open.

  • Aku Aku: "These crystals are far too powerful to leave lying around. They are safe once more, that is all you need to know."

The box of crystals slides through the hatch before it closes once again. Uka Uka roars in frustration.

  • Uka Uka: "I WANT WHAT IS MINE!"
  • Aku Aku: "I believe that can be arranged."

The stone table in the middle of the room glows a bright white as it slowly slides off to the side, revealing a square opening underneath.

  • Uka Uka: "What is this?!"
  • Aku Aku: "The penalty for disturbing the crystals, my brother!"

A light blue swirling vortex manifests from within the pit and begins to suck Uka Uka into it.

  • Uka Uka: "NOOOOO!"

Uka Uka screams as he's launched through the bottom of the temple and sent flying off into space.


First warp room cleared[]

Uka Uka is shown floating in space.

  • Uka Uka: "Excellent. I am now well on my way to defeating that feeble brother of mine. But before you can continue, you must first meet an old friend: Papu Papu."

Second warp room cleared[]

  • Uka Uka: "I notice you have won some crystals. These could be very... useful, to me. Defeat the mechanical bears, then continue to collect crystals wherever you can."

Third warp room cleared[]

  • Uka Uka: "When you are quite finished playing around in that tank, make sure you win all the crystals you can from the next warp room!"

Fourth warp room cleared[]

  • Uka Uka: "To maintain the pretext of this foolish tournament, you must enter the arena for one last time. Then, with the crystals you have won, I, the great Uka Uka, will at last have the power to enslave that miserable brother of mine! Ehahahahah!"

Evil Ending[]

Lightning strikes by the Hyperspace temple. Crash and Coco are standing on the table in front of Aku Aku. Uka Uka is floating opposite them, a box of crystals on the table before him.

  • Uka Uka: "The Earth is mine!"

Uka Uka laughs triumphantly.

  • Aku Aku: "What do you mean, 'the Earth is mine'?"
  • Uka Uka: "It was my plan all along, brother. Now I have all of the crystals, and all of the power!"
  • Aku Aku: "How can this be...? Was it so naïve of me to believe that goodness on its own could triumph over evil?"

Uka Uka laughs maniacally as the crystals glow brightly, beams of light shooting into the mask as he absorbs their power.

  • Aku Aku: "Now Uka Uka has the crystals, the Earth is surely doomed! Run, Crash, hide!"
  • Crash: "Woah!"

Crash and Coco turn and run off.

  • Aku Aku: "My friends, save yourselves!"
  • Uka Uka: "There is nowhere to hide, from the wrath of the mighty Uka Uka!"

Uka Uka lets out another victorious evil laugh as arcs of magenta electricity shoot out of him from every side, lightning continuing to strike outside of the temple.


Third warp room cleared[]

Aku Aku and Uka Uka float side by side on a starry backdrop.

  • Aku Aku: "Only our most challenging games await for you in our final warp room. Master your skills in the tanks to gain access to them."

Fourth warp room cleared[]

  • Aku Aku: "Excellent! There now only remains one challenge. You will need to combine all the skills that you have learned to succeed."


Uka Uka and Aku Aku are shown in the Hyperspace temple once more.

  • Aku Aku: "Well, Uka Uka, it seems we have a problem. A team made of both good and of evil has won."
  • Uka Uka: "This will not do!"

Uka Uka turns to the player.

  • Uka Uka: "Stop brooding with that puny enemy and get back to the arena! You must crush your team-mate. Evil must succeed! I, the great Uka Uka, must succeed! I MUST HAVE THE CRYSTALS!"
  • Aku Aku: "The crystals, Uka Uka?! What exactly are you planning?"

Aku Aku turns to the player.

  • Aku Aku: "Listen to me, this has gone beyond the tournament. Uka Uka must not be allowed to take control of the power contained within the crystals. You must defeat your evil team-mate. Good luck."
