Let's do this quick. I need to get back to Bianca.

Hunter is a fast, powerful cheetah from the Spyro the Dragon series, who speaks with a surfer dude accent and helps Spyro on many adventures. He is often equipped with a bow and arrow and is known to be a champion of the Speedway levels.

History with the Crash Bandicoot series

Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage

Being a character not originating from the Crash Bandicoot series, he has only made very few appearances in Crash's games. His first appearance in such is as a cameo in Purple.

While he has a slightly larger role in Purple's sister game in the Spyro series, Spyro Orange: The Cortex Conspiracy, appearing in a few cutscenes, he appears within Purple as an NPC in the hub world Fire Mountains, where he warns Crash about Flame Thrower Lab Assistants up ahead. He can also appear obtaining his trading card in Orange and trading it over to Purple via link cable.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled

Hunter makes his first true appearance in the Crash series in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, as one of the three characters added during the Spyro N. Friends Grand Prix, alongside Spyro himself and Gnasty Gnorc. Hunter can be purchased in the Pit Stop for 1500 Wumpa Coins.

Crash Bandicoot: On the Run!

While Hunter himself did not appear in On the Run!, a Hunter themed skin for Crash was added in Season 3: Battle of the Dragons.



Hunter is an easygoing, friendly, and somewhat naïve character. He's very physically skilled, having hobbies such as archery, skateboarding and scuba diving. He's a loyal friend to Spyro, often helping him out on his adventures. As his name implies, he's a talented archer, and he enjoys exploring new places. He isn't highly intelligent, and can be quite gullible and forgetful at times. He can also be quite cowardly, shown in many of his animations in Nitro-Fueled.

Physical Appearance

Hunter is a tall, lanky anthropomorphic cheetah. He has sandy coloured fur with an off-white belly and muzzle, as well as brown cheetah spots on his back, arms, legs and tail. He has a large, triangular dark brown nose, heavy-lidded medium blue eyes with thick dark brown eyebrows, three thin tufts of fur on top of his head and white claws. He usually has a quiver filled with arrows around his torso, and is often seen either carrying his longbow or with it affixed to the back of his quiver. He also has a thick, dark grey armband around his left forearm, as well as a thin one on his right upper arm.
