Welcome to Bandipedia!



Warthogs, also known as simply Hogs are enemies that appear in the Crash Bandicoot series.


Warthogs have a big dark patch of fur on their back and on the tip of their tail, while the rest of the body is of a lighter shade of brown and with less visible fur. They have a long tail and really small and skinny legs.

A mutant character inspired by the warthog was supposed to appear in the first game, but was later turned into a normal animal enemy.


Crash Bandicoot[]

In Crash Bandicoot, they first appear as animals that Crash can ride on top of in the levels Hog Wild and Whole Hog. Together they must dodge spiky pillars, natives and other warthogs being roasted on moving sticks. Warthogs appear also as enemies in the levels set on the collapsing old bridges such as Road to Nowhere and The High Road. They run back and forth and are impossible to defeat. If you try walking on the ropes or run alongside them they will turn and butt Crash.

Crash Bandicoot: Dansu! De Jump! Na Daibouken[]

A warthog has a brief appearance at the beginning of Chapter 3: Get them! The Power Stones!, where it attacks Crash and Aku Aku after Crash accidentally throws a rock at its head.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy[]

In the N. Sane Trilogy, the warthogs reprise their role from the original Crash Bandicoot. They can now be defeated only by using invincible Aku Aku or losing one Aku Aku mask.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled[]

Warthogs have a camero appearance in Nitro-Fueled, seen in the background of Tiger Temple.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time[]

A single lone warthog (referred to as a Bullying Boar in the concept art gallery) can be found towards the beginning of Rude Awakening. It charges towards the player character and can be defeated with any normal attack.

Crash Team Rumble[]

Hogs have a minor role in Rumble, being one of the randomly selected animals that enemies can be turned into using Cortex's transformation ability.
