Profiles[]

Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex[]

  • Manual

“Cortex’s most radical weapon yet created, Crunch is a perfectly tuned Super-Bandicoot! A bionic brute, he has been genetically created for one reason and one reason alone: DESTROY CRASH BANDICOOT!”

Crash Bandicoot 2: N-Tranced[]

  • Manual

"Related to Crash only by species, Crunch is a super-bandicoot originally created to destroy Crash. Freed from Neo Cortex's mind control, Crunch has now joined up with Crash and his friends."

Crash Nitro Kart[]

  • Manual

“Originally created by Dr. Neo Cortex to destroy Crash, Crunch had a change of heart and joined the bandicoot family. His tremendous bulk gives him amazing momentum and speed, but he’s a bit slow to start.”

Crash Boom Bang![]

  • In-Game

"He was originally created by Cortex. He's one tough and powerful dude."

Crash Village[]

  • In-Game

"Another mutant created by Cortex to destroy Crash, Crunch has seen the error of his ways and now tries to be a positive role model for children. Crunch feels like he's really a member of the Bandicoot family, the "big brother" of Crash and Coco. Crunch has a bit of a problem with mixing metaphors but he'll do anything for his new family."[8]
