Mines are hazards that first appear in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back.

Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back[]

The first type of mines appear in the river levels Hang Eight, Air Crash and Plant Food. When Crash hits them, he falls off the jet board and drowns unless he has an Aku Aku. Some of the mines move in a set path, making it harder for Crash to avoid them.

The second type of mines are land mines, found in "chase" levels as well as Diggin' It and Bee-Having. When Crash steps on land mines, they send him flying into the air, temporarily stunning him.

Crash Bandicoot: Warped[]

The first type of mines appear as hazards in the underwater levels of Warped. They are attached to chains and follow Crash's movements. Shooting a missile from the Jet Sub at the mines is the only way Crash can safely destroy them.

The second type of mines are land mines that appear during Cortex's boss fight. These mines explode after approximately 3 seconds.

Crash Bash[]

In Crash Bash, they are a special item found in all of the Tank Wars arenas, including the boss fight with the Komodo Brothers. A player can drop mines which will explode after a few seconds.

Spiky Land Mines also appear in the Tank Wars mini-games as the weapons used by Tiny Tiger and Koala Kong. They cause more damage than the weapons the other characters shoot out from their cannons, but they can't move very fast.

Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure[]

Mines once again return in the underwater levels. Unlike their Warped counterparts, these mines are not attached to anything. In addition, they move quicker, making it harder for Crash to safely pass them.

Land mines also appear in the chase sections of Frostbite Cavern, Snow Crash, and Snow Job. They send Crash and Polar flying into the air, stunning them.

Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage[]

Mines appear in river mini-games as hazards and function the same way as mines from river levels in Cortex Strikes Back, there is also a trading card featuring a mine in the game.

Crash Nitro Kart 2[]

Mines appear as hazards in The Nitroactive Sewers tracks, Nina's Track and Toxic Tunnels. They hang from the ceiling on ropes and explode if collided with, causing a spin-out.

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D[]

An unused mine item icon is present in the game files.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy[]

The Water and Land Mines appear in the remake of the first three games, reprising their original roles.
