Welcome to Bandipedia!



Totally Bear is the twenty-sixth level in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy remake of the second game. The first of two original secret levels in the game, it is unlocked by finding the Secret Warp Room in Un-Bearable. This level is considered to be much harder than the previous bear riding levels. It forces Crash to once again ride his pet polar bear cub, Polar, close to the end of Un-Bearable. In Bear It, it was during the day, in Bear Down, it was evening, and now in Totally Bear, it is night, making it harder for the player because you cannot see that much farther ahead, and there is a light following the two. It is unknown what the source of the light is, possibly moonlight.

  • This level's name could be a sly pun on Mattel's popular and famous Totally Hair Barbie, which sold extremely well in the years prior to this game's release.
  • Totally bear phantom tnt

    The TNT and life crates, which are destroyed before they should come visible to the player, as seen using a level editor

    Shortly after the second check point, the box counter will increase by two without Crash breaking a box. Through hacking, it has been discovered that this small glitch occurs as a result of a TNT crate exploding before it comes on screen, breaking a nearby life crate with it. If these two boxes that never occur on screen weren't counted, this level would have the least amount of crates in the game.
  • As with the other Polar levels in this game, Aku Aku is banned from this level, so even if the player has an Aku Aku mask when entering the level, the player loses it.
