Welcome to Bandipedia!



Tokens are special items found in Crash Team Racing, Crash Nitro Kart and Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled where players need them in order to be able to take part in Gem Cups. In CTR, tokens come in five colors: red, blue, yellow, green and purple. In CNK, they come in only four colors as there is no yellow one.

Ways to get them[]

The method used to obtain tokens varies slightly between CTR and CNK, and the purple tokens have a different obtain method in both games.

Crash Team Racing[]

In CTR, players need to get the letters C, T, and R in a race, and come in first place to win a token.

Crash Nitro Kart[]

In CNK, this is the same, except players need to get the letters C, N, and K instead.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled[]

The remake has the same method, also requiring that players collect the letters C, T and R.

Purple tokens[]

Purple tokens are obtained through a different method in both CTRCNK and Nitro-Fueled. After defeating the boss of a planet/area, the area's battle arena is unlocked, where players need to collect all of the crystals in the arena before time runs out. Doing so awards a purple token. Collecting all these tokens awards the player with a bonus battle arena in CNK.
