Welcome to Bandipedia!



Off Beat is the first story level of Mosquito Marsh and the fourteenth main level of Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time.


The level is set during a festival being celebrated by ghosts and skeletons, which can be seen around the level playing musical instruments and having a good time, either in the background or as a hindrance to Crash and Coco's journey. Cannon Men can be found across the level which shoot Crash or Coco towards the next segment.

  • There are many cameos in this level, including a wanted poster featuring Pinstripe Potoroo, parade floats depicting Spyro, Pura, Eruptor (from Skylanders) and Fake Crash can be seen, and Ripper Roo bouncing around the city rooftops.
    • The Eruptor float in particular may be a reference to the real life Eruptor balloon that appeared at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parades from 2014 to 2016. It was the only Skylanders character to appear as a balloon at the parades, and is one of only 4 balloons that depict characters from video games.
  • At the third checkpoint, you can spin into the dumpster to get the "Here Kitty Kitty" trophy.
  • With the adjacent swamp/bayou, parade floats, jazz background music and French-style architecture, the setting of the level resembles New Orleans, Louisiana during Mardi Gras.
