Ah, yummy! Fresh meat for my pot!Rusty Walrus, Crash Twinsanity
Rusty Walrus is a genetically enhanced walrus who appears only in Crash Twinsanity. He works for Doctor N. Gin as his battleship's cook. Rusty is voiced by Dwight Schultz in the English version, and by Hajime Iijima in the Japanese version of the game. He is notorious for his stage's difficulty.
Not much is known about Rusty. What is known is that he is a chef under the employ of Dr. N. Gin (as depicted from his apron). After Crash defeats N.Gin, the platform the fight took place on collapses. Crash falls and crashes through the desk of the ship, landing in a corridor. Rusty appears from another room, declares Crash to be his next meal, and begins chasing him. The chase that ensues is much like the traditional boulder dash levels of previous games. Obstacles include holes in the floor (which strangely Rusty walks over some of them), Nitro Crates (which Rusty is surprisingly immune to) and burning-hot steam. After the chase, Crash escapes.
It is unknown what became of him after N. Gin accidentally set off the major TNT explosion, but since he was immune to the nitro crates, he was probably immune to the TNT's explosion. Actually, on the High Sea High Jinks level gallery Crash is shown falling through a hole in the floor and landing in Rusty's pot. He is not featured as a character in any other games in the Crash series so far.
His theme music is an acapella version of the Hebrides Overture.
- Rusty Walrus' name is an homage of the famous NASCAR driver Rusty Wallace.
- Rusty, like all chase level characters, are immune to hazardous level objects such as Nitro Crates.
- There is a glitch in his chase where if Crash spins to his side he will be behind Rusty, making the chase easier, as he will run into all the Nitro Crates on that floor.
- Rusty was intended to appear in Twinsanity's cancelled sequel in a cooking show, where he would have chased Crash again.
- Rusty appears in concept art for a cut level where Nina had to climb a large tree.
- In the NTSC-J version of Crash Twinsanity, Rusty can sometimes run into the walls and get stuck in them.
- In the Japanese version of Crash Twinsanity, he is simply named Walrus (ウォーラス Wōrasu).
- Rusty was originally going to be a full boss, but was reduced to a simple chase sequence due to time contraints.
