Wumpa Fruit in the Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy.

Wumpa Fruit are Crash Bandicoot's favorite food and a common object in the Crash Bandicoot series.

Collecting 100 Wumpa Fruit will give Crash an extra life (platformers from Crash Bandicoot to the N. Sane Trilogy). If Crash spins at any Wumpa Fruit, they will fly away, but if Crash slides into them, they will be collected normally. In most games, losing a life, dying in any context or failing a challenge often causes the current amount of Wumpa Fruit collected upon entering an area to be instantly lost, as they will be visually subtracted from Crash's Wumpa Fruit count on the HUD. During N. Gin's boss fight in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, Crash launches Wumpa Fruit at N. Gin's Mech to damage it. He also uses Wumpa Fruit as ammo for the Fruit Bazooka powerup in Crash Bandicoot: Warped.

The fruit serve a different purpose in Crash Team Racing, Crash Nitro Kart, and Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled where they increase a racer's top speed. In Crash Team Racing, and in the Nitro-Fueled remake, fruit crates, which are placed around the tracks award between 4 and 9 Wumpa Fruit, based on luck and level of difficulty. In Crash Nitro Kart, 3-4 Wumpa Fruit are awarded. The most Wumpa Fruit a racer can carry is 10, at which point their weapons will be "Juiced Up" (i.e. made more powerful in some way). A racer may lose some of their Wumpa Fruit if hit by a track hazard or another racer's weapon, or if they fall off the track.

In Crash Bash, Wumpa Fruit serve as either health or speed boosts, like in the Crash Dash minigames.

In Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage, Crash has infinite lives. Wumpa Fruit is instead used to access some levels and buy trading cards.

In Crash of the Titans and Crash: Mind Over Mutant, they replenish health.

Wumpa Fruit reappear in Skylanders: Imaginators, and they only appear in the Thumpin' Wumpa Islands level. They now have a sparkly effect surrounding them, and are found on paths and in different types of crates. Unlike the Crash Bandicoot games, when collected they will give the current Skylander one piece of gold.

In Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time, collecting enough of these fruits will also give you a certain number of gems; the more Wumpa Fruit collected, the more gems can be earned. At maximum, the player can only get three of the level's gems this way. In N. Verted Mode, Wumpa Fruits are replaced by Bumpa Berries, having the same function as Wumpa Fruits in normal mode. Additionally, spinning Wumpa Fruits no longer makes them fly away, instead they will be collected.

Golden Wumpa Fruit are a variant of Wumpa Fruit that appear in several games.
