Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Wumpa Fruit

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

Wumpa Fruit are Crash's favorite food and a common object in all Crash Bandicoot games.

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 Doctor N. Gin's boss fight in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, Crash launches Wumpa Fruit at N. Gin's mech to damage it.

Crash Team Racing, Crash Nitro Kart, and the Nitro-Fueled remake of Crash Team Racing use Wumpa Fruit to "juice-up" the weapons that players pick up throughout a race or during a battle.

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

In Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage, Crash instead has infinite lives and certain amounts of Wumpa Fruit are needed to access some levels and buy trading cards.

In Crash of the Titans, they are used to replenish health. There is also a Golden Wumpa Fruit that gives the player lives. They are obtained when the player sacrifices a titan to a large mojo sphere or when a spybot is destroyed. In Crash: Mind Over Mutant, Golden Wumpa Fruit extend Crash's health bar when collected. There are 14 Golden Wumpa Fruit in this game, and each can only be collected once.

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.
