This is a list of quotes in CTR: Crash Team Racing.

Aku Aku/Uka Uka[]


  • "Welcome to the adventure arena. You can travel around this area and practice your driving skills."
  • [opening cutscene in N. Sanity Beach area] "The dots and stars on the map represent Warp Pads, which lead to races. When they flash, it signifies they are open to play."
  • "To access a race track, drive onto a Warp Pad that has an active warp vortex, and it will take you to the track's start line. Finish a track in first place to win a trophy. As you collect more trophies, other tracks will turn on and open to you. Good luck, and drive fast!"
  • [if the player does not have enough trophies to access a track] "To access this track, you must first collect the number of trophies required to turn on the Warp Pad. To get trophies, you must race other open tracks and come in first place."
  • "To access this boss garage, you must come in first place in all four races of this area."
  • "You must have a Boss Key to open this door. You can race a boss after beating all four tracks in an area. Beat the boss in a boss race, and a Key is your prize."
  • "You must have 2 Boss Keys to open this door. You can race a boss after beating all four tracks in an area. Beat the boss in a boss race, and a Key is your prize."
  • "You don't have the 4 Boss Keys to open this door. Beat each boss to get a Key, and when you have all 4 Keys, come back here to race Oxide."
  • [after completing the first area] "Congratulations on opening this new area! Here you will find four more tracks to race. Good luck!"
  • "This is the Load-Save Screen. There are five of these screens, one in each world section. When you want to load or save a game, go to one of these screens. To access it, drive up to the screen and stop. Then follow the directions."
  • "Congratulations. You win a Trophy."
  • "You can get a hang time turbo from jumping. The longer you're in the air, the bigger the turbo you'll get when you land. For big turbos, try to get extra air time by hopping off jumps using the L1 button.
  • "You can go faster through turns by power sliding. To access the power slide, press and hold the L1 button while turning hard."
  • "To get a turbo boost while power sliding, wait until the smoke from your exhaust turns black, then press the L1 button. If you wait too long, you'll hear a backfire sound, and miss your chance for a boost."
  • "To get around a tight turn, or to face a direction quickly, use the brake slide by pressing and holding the Square button while turning hard."
  • "The more Wumpa Fruit you collect, the faster your kart will go. If you collect and hold 10 Wumpa Fruit you'll be juiced up and your power up(s) will become more potent."
  • "When you get a TNT Crate on your head, start hopping immediately. If you react fast and hop enough times, the TNT Crate will fall off your head before it explodes!"
  • "Collect every Crystal in the arena before the time runs out. If you can get them all, you will win a prize!"
  • "Collect the letters 'C', 'T' and 'R' on each track and come in first place to win a CTR Token. Beware, some letters are hard to find!"
  • "If you collect 4 CTR Tokens of this color, you can enter the Gem Cup. Score the most points in the 4 races of the Cup to win a Gem."
  • [if the player does not have enough Relics to access Slide Coliseum] "You must first collect the required number of Relics to race this track."
  • "Get the lowest time you can by racing fast and breaking Time Crates. Each Time Crate you break will freeze the clock. If you achieve a low enough time, you will be awarded a Relic.


  • "Great. You've earned a Relic."
  • "Congratulations. You've won a Gem."
  • "Good Job. You've earned a key." (Unused)
  • "Excellent work. You've collected a C.T.R token." (Unused)

I travel the stars, looking for creatures to test my skills. It's a little game I call Survival of the Fastest. Here's the way we play: I challenge the best driver of your world to race for the planet. If your driver wins, I'll leave your miserable little rock alone. But if I win, I'll turn your entire globe into a concrete parking lot, and make you my slaves! Hahahahahaha! Get ready to race for the fate of your planet!"

Your miserable planet stays mushy and green. At least you still haven't gathered all of my Time Relics. Until you've collected all of those, and race me again, you'll never be able to claim you are the fastest! This won't be the last time you'll face Nitros Oxide! We will meet again!"
