Willie Wumpa Cheeks is the main antagonist of Crash Tag Team Racing and was the mascot of Ebenezer Von Clutch's MotorWorld. His head is a gigantic Wumpa Fruit with a Wumpa Pumpa for a nose, from which the Wumpa Whip he produces comes from. He often speaks in limericks and rhymes, which proves to disturb many people, particularly Dr. Cortex and Stew.


Crash Tag Team Racing[]

At first, Willie appears to be a friendly mascot who provides riddles and hints. Later on, it is revealed that Willie is the one responsible for stealing the Power Gems from the park and Von Clutch's Black Power Gem. He admits to the crime out of sheer frustration of the other characters' less-than-intelligent accusation of Crash for the theft of the Gems, given that the one (and most obvious) piece of evidence points to Willie. He bounds off to Astro Land and attempts to blast off in a rocket, but is thwarted when Crash aborts the launch. Willie is pulled out of the rocket by Crunch, but before Willie can be interrogated on the location of the Black Power Gem, he is liquefied by a shot from Doctor Cortex's battle-craft and falls to the floor with his eyes left intact.

Other appearances[]

While Willie himself doesn't appear in Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time, nor is he mentioned, he is referenced. When the narrator is listing the side effects of eating Dingodile's food in the Dingo's Diner advert, he mentions "Wumpa Cheeks" as one of the symptoms, with Wumpa Cheeks being Willie's last name.


Physical description[]

Willie is a large, round mutant Wumpa Fruit with orange skin, orange eyes, twisted purple eyebrows, crooked and yellowed teeth, a stem with a leaf on his head, and a metal pump for a nose. He wears a red limbless bodysuit with coattails and a yellow screen on the chest, green gloves, and red shoes with grey heels.


While outwardly appearing as a friendly, albeit creepy park mascot, behind this facade, Willie Wumpa Cheeks is a treacherous and manipulative villain who wanted to kill his employer, Ebenezer Von Clutch, even being willing to accept Crash to be incriminated for his acts before revealing himself as the culprit.

He has a tendency to speak in rhymes, and as such he introduces himself and places while rhyming. He has been noted to scare others due to his appearance and demeanor, such as Doctor Neo Cortex and Stew. As a Wumpa Fruit, he produced wumpa juice that was converted into Wumpa Whip, a task which he expressed boredom with. Willie also expresses disdain and dislike for his work as a mascot.
