They appear as the main enemies of the platforming level. Their main attack is to throw toxic waste barrels at Crash. Once thrown, the barrels roll down the main path. Whenever he throws a barrel, the potoroo lets out an evil chuckle. They can throw regular barrels or jumping toxic barrels, which are also seen in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Team Racing. The jumping toxic barrels are harder to dodge, so the player will have to time their movements carefully. When Crash gets close enough, he can defeat the henchman with a spin attack.
Similar to Pinstripe and the Slim, the Fat are dressed like the gangsters of the 1930's and 1960's, complete with a fancy black mobster jacket, pink shirt, white tie and fedora hat. They are also the more overweight enemies.
