Hippos are animals that first appeared in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back.

Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back

Hippos appear in Hang Eight, Air Crash, and Plant Food, where they act as platforms. Once Crash lands on them, the hippos will sink into the water for a few moments.

Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex

A hippo was originally meant to appear in Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex in Jungle Rumble in the stampede of Rhinos alongside Elephant, and Giraffe that would pursue Crash in that level. Its model is still present in the game, so it can be enabled in Jungle Rumble via hacking.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

Hippos appear in the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, in the remaster of the second game, where they reprise their role from the original version. Unlike previously, they are light brown with darker spots, and black eyes with yellow pupils.
