Seals are common enemies that made their debut in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back. They are brown seals that are found in the arctic levels of the game.


Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back[]

The seals don't physically attack Crash, instead they shuffle across Crash's path and act more as a roadblock. There are certain areas in the certain levels where the seals will attack in pairs, and fall into a nearby pit before they reappear again. They can be defeated with any normal attack.

Seals also appear in the Polar Bear levels. In these levels, they only shuffle across the screen and act more as a roadblock rather than an attacking enemy. If Crash runs into them with Polar, then it will result in him dying and losing a life; however, if the player dashes through them at full speed, they will defeat the seal without losing a life.

They can be found in the levels Snow Go, Snow Biz, Bear It, Bear Down and Cold Hard Crash.

Crash Team Racing[]

The seals also appear in CTR on the track Polar Pass, where they appear as an obstacle on the track. If a racer bumps into a seal, then their kart will spin out.

Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex[]

The seals reappear in The Wrath of Cortex, exclusively appearing in the level Arctic Antics. In this game, the seals have a more cartoonish look and wear a propeller hat on their heads. They attack similarly to the ones in Cortex Strikes Back, except this time they will walk in and out of a cave and across the path. This means that attacking them is useless as they will keep popping out of the cave from the side of the screen. Crash can destroy them similar to the seals in Cortex Strikes Back by either jumping on them or spinning them away.

Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure[]

The seals that appear in Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure are similar to their Cortex Strikes Back counterparts, as they mainly slide down hills to attack Crash and can be killed by either spinning or jumping them. These seals have white fur instead of brown. They can be found in Frostbite Cavern, Snow Crash and Snow Job.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy[]

The seals then reappear in the N. Sane Trilogy, reprising the roles they had in the second game with no notable changes.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled[]

They also reappear in Nitro-Fueled where they reprise the same role that they had in the original version of Crash Team Racing.

Crash Bandicoot: On the Run![]

In On the Run!, seals appear throughout the level Bear It and are now cyborgs with metal flippers and mouths. They have two separate sets of behaviour. In the first, they move back and forth across the path, usually conveniently placed in such a way that spinning, sliding or body-slamming them will send them flying into nearby crates or explosives. The second behaviour sees the seals sliding on their bellies towards the player, being completely invincible in this state (aside from Aku Aku's protection). In both states, seals can be bounced on to reach higher areas.
