Polar Bears are enemies from the Crash Bandicoot series.


The polar bears are big carnivorous animals covered in white fur with a big dark blue nose and sharp teeth.

What is supposed to be a mutant polar bear can be seen in Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex looking similar to other polar bears but with no visible teeth, a black and smaller nose, and wearing a small vest.


In the level Un-Bearable in Crash Bandicoot 2, polar bears will chase the player instead of the regular boulder. They can't be harmed or defeated and only at the end of each section will the polar bear become stuck in a doorway. Some polar bears will try to chase Crash over a wooden bridge, which gives way under their enormous weight; one such instance opens the way to a secret path in the level. Polar bears in this game appear to have a grudge against Crash, as they are seen laughing whenever the player loses a life.

In Crash Team Racing, a polar bear can be seen frozen inside a giant ice structure in Polar Pass.

In Crash Bash, a polar bear by the name of Bearminator appears as the second boss of the game. He rides a submarine and shoots bombs and mechanical bears onto the stage.

In Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex, a mutant polar bear on a flying carpet will race the player through a series of rings in the level Ice Station Bandicoot.

In Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure, smaller polar bears appear as regular enemies in the ice stages and can be defeated by any attack. They walk back and forth on the ground slowly.

Polar Bears reappear in the N. Sane Trilogy, where they reprise the role they had in the second game.
