Wizard Lab Assistants (Japanese: 魔法研究員) are lab assistant variants that appear in Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex and the N. Sane Trilogy remaster of the third game. They attack by shooting magic projectiles at Crash. If Crash gets hit, he will turn into a frog in Warped, or a bat in The Wrath of Cortex. They wear blue robes with yellow stars, appearing in the medieval levels.
In the PAL version of Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, the wizard lab assistant takes two hits to defeat. The first hit destroys their wizard costume, leaving them in their underwear, while the second hit completely defeats them. Their costumes can be destroyed in the NTSC version with the Fruit Bazooka and they only take one hit to be defeated. When they laugh, their beard is below their chin, implying that they wear a fake beard.
In the N. Sane Trilogy, wizards are destroyed in only one hit and drop their hat and staff. These items can be kicked around.
- While wizard lab assistants do not appear in underwear in the N. Sane Trilogy, they do so in some of the cells and hanged cages of Cortex's Castle in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. They only wear white underwear with red hearts, a fake beard and carry their staff.
