Znus are electrical minions of the Grimly that first appear in Mount Grimly. These creatures can shoot electrical beams and continuously jump to dodge attacks from Crash. They first appeared in the NV Commercial, when one of the Znus said the price of the product. One particular Znu had the habit of eating sandwiches while going to the bathroom, something Cortex was disgusted about.


Znus appear as small, purple, rounded figures. They have large hands, and orange shoes with their tips facing upward, and wear white clothes above their legs. Znus also have pointy and large teeth. On their arms and faces, they have an orange circle, with a yellow glowing circle on them.
