A mug is an item that gives the player an extra life in most of the games. They are mostly found in Crash Crates but can also be found floating in the air. Mugs appear next to the player's life counter and next to the boss's health meter. There are also extra life mugs for Nina, Coco, Mecha-Bandicoot, and Dr. Cortex when players control them. They are replaced by a counter showing Crash's remaining lives in Crash of the Titans. If the player loses all lives, the game over screen occurs.

Mugs also appear in spin-offs. In the racing games, the leading four players' mugs are displayed at the side of the screen. In Crash Bash, mugs appear on top of the players' health, points, etc.

In Crash Boom Bang!, there are two additional catergories of mugs. The first are emotes, used for the distraction mechanic. Each playable character has a happy, angry and sad emote each. The second type are the cards used in the Silhouette Quiz minigame, featuring mugs for some non-playable characters.

In Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, each character has multiple mugs; one default mug, and one for each of their unlockable Skins. There also exists a category of Stickers consisting entirely of unique mugs (in this game known as Portraits) for each playable character, as well as a few non-playable ones. Like any other Sticker in the game, these can be used to customize the player's kart, and can be purchased in the Pit Stop. Some of these Portrait Stickers are unlocked via Adventure mode.
