Skins are unlockable cosmetic items that can be equipped to change the appearance of the playable character, usually by addition of some sort of costume. Since their introduction in Crash Tag Team Racing, they have reappeared in many more recent games.

Description[]

Crash Tag Team Racing[]

In Crash Tag Team Racing, skins can be unlocked by purchasing them from Park Drones using Wumpa Coins, which can be found scattered loose around the park or inside of crates. The only exception to this is the Baby Crash skin, which is unlocked by discovering all 34 Die-O-Ramas.

Each of the eight playable characters have one skin each (except for Crash Bandicoot, who has eight), leaving the game with 15 skins in total.

Though these skins are cosmetic, with the items themselves having no effect during races, unlocking some skins is necessary for story progression, with characters sometimes asking Crash to buy one for them.

Crash of the Titans[]

In Crash of the Titans, there are twenty-one skins for Crash to wear. Most resemble a specific minion or titan in the game, and are earned by defeating or jacking a certain number of enemies, granting Crash a Voodoo Doll. When worn, they allow Crash to instantly defeat or stun the enemy it represents. Other skins may be earned through game completion or by inputting a cheat code. Unlike the titan skins, these do not confer any bonuses when worn.

Skins are exclusive to the console versions of the game.

Crash: Mind Over Mutant[]

In Crash: Mind Over Mutant, there are ten unlockable skins for Crash and two for Coco. Most skins can be unlocked by completing all ten mini-game rounds in a specific arena. The player can equip or remove skins using the treasure chest in the Bandicoot House. Unlike the previous game, skins do not confer any extra benefits when worn and are purely cosmetic.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled[]

Nitro-Fueled has the most skins of all Crash games, with a grand total of 334 skins (not counting the characters' default appearances). There are different kinds of skins in the game.

The first kind is the Exotic skin, denoted by the character's icon having a purple background. All Exotic skins are simply recolours of the character's default look, possessing no unique animations or other properties. Most Exotic skins are unlocked by winning a certain number of races as the specific character. Most characters have 3 Exotic skins each.

The second type of skin is the Legendary skin, shown with a yellow background. These skins give the character an entirely new look and add a unique podium victory animation. Some legendary skins add a filter over the character's voicelines to add to the effect, such as a robotic or muffled filter. Most Legendary skins are bought from the Pit Stop using Wumpa Coins. Every character that was present at launch has at least one legendary skin (though some weren't added in until later, such as Geary's Beenox Robot skin) and most of the characters added in post-launch possess at least one. There are a handful of post-launch racers (such as Yaya and Pasadena) who lack Legendary skins altogether. Some legendary skins also have recoloured versions, bought separately.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time[]

Skins reappear in It's About Time. Most are unlocked by collecting Gems or completing challenges during gameplay. Crash and Coco are the only playable characters to have skins. Crash and Coco have 30 skins each including their default appearances, and skins are changed via the skins menu on the dimensional map.

Crash Bandicoot: On the Run![]

Skins appeared in On the Run! for both playable characters, Crash and Coco. 71 skins were available at launch, and more were added through seasons, with the final total sitting at 196. These skins weren't just cosmetic, as they granted special bonuses to help in gameplay. Most skins were obtained by purchasing them for crystals or real money at the vending machine, while others could be won via passes or the team leaderboard during seasons.

Crash Team Rumble[]

Skins are featured in Crash Team Rumble alongside other cosmetic items such as hats, backpacks and unique accessories for each character, which may be mixed and matched. Some skin designs are recycled from It's About Time, while most others are new, original designs. 51 skins were available at launch, and more were added through seasons and updates, with the final total sitting at 159.
