Rats are enemies encountered throughout the Crash Bandicoot series. Rats made their debut in the first Crash Bandicoot game.

Crash Bandicoot

Rats are found in Lights Out and Fumbling in the Dark. Only their red eyes can be seen in the darkness. They move in packs, like Skunks towards Crash and fall off the end of the path.

Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back

A different type of rat appears in the sewer levels. It is armed from the side and is required to be jumped on to be defeated.

Crash Twinsanity

Rats were not seen again until Crash Twinsanity. Rats are found in almost every part of the game, they are first seen in the caves of N. Sanity Island, around N. Gin's Battleship, on the grounds of the Academy of Evil, in the underground Boiler Room and finally on the rooftops of the academy. The only place they do not appear is obviously in the Tenth Dimension, since there are no fauna native to Twinsanity Island.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

Rats and Spike Rats, reappear in the N. Sane Trilogy, where they reprise the roles they had in the original versions of the first and second games.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled

Spiked Rats make a cameo appearance in the Nitro-Fueled remake of Crash Team Racing in the race track N. Gin Labs. At Megamix Mania, a pair of rats can be found trying to help one of their spiked counterparts up a ceiling hole. Another Spiked Rat also appears in the wall with Rusty Walrus's imprint.
