In the Polar riding levels of Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, TNT crates start the timer automatically without Crash touching them. In the Ripper Roo boss fight of Crash 2 and El Pogo Loco in Crash Bash, he places TNT squares on the ground, which count down from six seconds in the former.
In Crash Team Racing, Crash Nitro Kart, and the Nitro-Fueled remake of Crash Team Racing, when one is hit the driver must jump repeatedly to try and get it off their head before it explodes. If the driver succeeds, the crate goes flying behind them and explodes upon hitting the floor, damaging anyone too close. If they fail, it sends the driver crashing. If the player is Juiced Up, it becomes a Nitro Crate, which explodes immediately on contact. Ripper Roo uses TNT crates normally in his boss challenge, and Komodo Joe and Nitros Oxide launch TNT crates which explode on impact, as if they were on their head, in conjunction with deploying Nitro Crates as normal. In Nitro-Fueled, the TNT Crate also appears as an alternate skin for the Iron Checkpoint Crate.
In Crash Twinsanity, the TNT crates are used to clear paths, by exploding near Nitro Crates, and take down nearby trees. During the battle with N. Gin, he throws TNT crates, and are used to explode the crows nest, and defeat the Mini-Boss. On the following scene, Rusty Walrus is the unique enemy in the entire game that isn't vulnerable to TNT crates nor Nitro Crates, to which Rusty doesn't get defeated.
In Japan, this crate has a bomb symbol instead of the "TNT". In Skylanders Imaginators, Crash's attacks include throwing TNT crates and spinning them into foes.
