The Elemental Crates are cut crates from Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex that come with the Elementals in the forms of fire, air, water, and earth. They would appear in one level after defeating the final boss of the last hub. These crates would unlock a secret mini boss that would award the player a gem after its defeat. They were mentioned by one of the producers sometime before the game's release.
