Meet your brand new, hydraulically operated twin brother: Mecha Bandicoot!Doctor Neo Cortex, Crash Twinsanity
The robot was first introduced as a boss fight after the battle between Crash and Cortex, piloted by N. Gin.
The main method of attack for those piloting the Mecha-Bandicoot are its hands; its right hand is a giant chainsaw, while the left has a rocket launcher. Another weapon featured in its design is a plasma gun in its nose, which functions similarly to Cortex's ray gun.
In its beta model, Mecha-Bandicoot was shown to have a giant drill instead of the chainsaw. Even earlier in development, in some concept art featuring it, it had a robotic hand instead of a missile launcher.
- It is unknown how Mecha-Bandicoot got to the 10th Dimension; N. Gin may have taken it there in order to get the treasure of the Evil Twins or Cortex had put it in storage in his lab, which Crash went back to get for after the fight. It could have been possible that Crash went back to the mines in his dimension to get it, as of which that could explain why he left before Nina fights the Evil Twins.
- When the fight with Mecha-Bandicoot begins, it is shown to be able to jump very high, but when it is playable, it can't jump very high.
- Mecha-Bandicoot was originally going to be playable in the cut level, Ocean Commotion.
- In one piece of concept art, it shows Mecha having a drill instead of a chainsaw.
- This drill was present on an early model of Mecha-Bandicoot, which is visible in Twinsanity's demo.
- Its ammo icon is a picture of Cortex's ray gun instead of being a rocket, which was cut from the game.
- Mecha's chainsaw would have been another attack when it was playable. It would also have an ability of strafing sideways, just like playing as Cortex by pressing the R1 and L2 buttons.
