Stage Dive is the boss fight and the final story level of The Hazardous Wastes and the sixth main level of Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time.
Crash and Coco confront N. Gin and his Weapon of Mass Percussion. The speakers shoots both discs of light and Crazed Kids. The battle has four phases and in each phase, Crash/Coco must spin or slide to send three Ramblers back to the speakers until the target spot of the weapon is revealed, and then jump to the drums of the weapon to spin the target spot. During the last three phases, the player needs to use Lani-Loli to reach the target stop. The second Quantum Mask, Akano, is used as a power source of W.O.M.P., but is accidentally thrown through a quantum rift into Salty Wharf after the battle, prompting Crash, Coco and Lani-Loli to go after him into the rift.
