Die-O-Ramas are clips in Crash Tag Team Racing featuring Crash getting killed in various ways due to the dangerous MotorWorld theme park. While some are caused by Crash's own foolishness, others are accidental. They are not to be confused with the gags that appear in this game as while some gags do result in death, Crash is not the one being killed.

Crash runs past a big cow drinking some water; he quickly comes back and studies the nearby sign. He gets a mischievous look on his face and tries to tip the cow over at every side, but he's unsuccessful. He stops at the back of the cow to catch his breath. The cow then grabs Crash by his neck with his tail and wraps hard and by its butt. The cow wraps harder, then farts into Crash's face, either asphyxiating him or smothering him with methane gas. An interesting note is that the icon for this Die-O-Rama in-game depicts Crash being smothered by green gas emanating from the cow's butt, whereas in the Die-O-Rama itself the gas is invisible.

- "The Smell of Money" is the longest Die-O-Rama in the game. It also appears to be absent from the Japanese version.
- In the Japanese version, Crash switches to his American model whenever he is crushed or flattened in the Die-O-Ramas.
- "Tickle the Ivories" and "Explodeded" are the only Die-O-Ramas where Crash dies without doing any action.
- "For Every Action..." is the only Die-O-Rama in which Crash does not die.
