Sapphire Relics are the easiest to obtain and have the longest time to obtain them. After this comes the Gold Relic and finally the Platinum Relic which are the hardest to obtain and have the shortest time to obtain them. Better relics are awarded when the player complete a certain course in a better time, by beating the record set by the CPU.
Although only the easiest time appears on screen, you do not have to have the Sapphire Relic to obtain the Gold Relics (except for Crash Bash). The same applies for the Platinum Relic with the Sapphire and Gold Relics.

- The Sapphire Relics were originally going to be Silver Relics in early versions of Crash Bandicoot: Warped. Due to the confusion of Silver looking similar to Platinum, it was changed to Bronze, but it eventually ended up as Sapphire.
- In Crash Bandicoot: Warped (as well as the later platform games and the remaster of Crash 2), a good tactic is to hold off on the Time Trials until you get the Crash Dash power, which makes getting the relics much easier.
- In the N. Sane Trilogy, Time Trials and relics are fully implemented into the remasters of the first two games, save for Relic-locked levels and the Gem obtainable by collecting every Gold Relic or higher. However, the criteria for retrieving two hidden Gems from Hang Eight and Plant Food remain the same, independent of the Time Trials.
- In Crash Bash, there are only two types of relics: Gold and Platinum. However, Gold Relics have a green jewel in them instead of red, and platinum relics look like Sapphire Relics. Also, in Crash Bash, relics are not obtained in a time trial mode, but rather in relic challenges.
- The Platinum times in Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped are not displayed until after beating Cortex.
- The relics resemble the ankh, an ancient Egyptian symbol of life that can also be seen on the moving platforms in the Egyptian levels of Warped. Visual changes made in N. Sane Trilogy bring them closer in terms of appearance.
- Relics were going to be used in Twinsanity, but they were cut.
- Relics were called "Trophies" in the Japanese version, but the name is reverted to "Relics" in the N. Sane Trilogy.
- According to Oxide and Velo, their full name is "Time Relics."
