Crash Bandicoot is an expressive, wacky, lazy, and somewhat dull-witted, genetically enhanced bandicoot created by the evil scientist, Dr. Neo Cortex. He was originally made to be part of Cortex's army of mutants but after the Cortex Vortex failed to mind control him, the bandicoot fled from his castle. Upon realizing Tawna was held captive, he traveled across islands to save Tawna and halt Cortex's plan, defeating his other experiments and allies on the way. Afterwards, Crash lives on Wumpa Island with sister, Coco, a masked spirit and father figure, Aku Aku, and reformed ally, Crunch, usually rising up to the task whenever a crisis is averted by Cortex or other threats.

Intelligence: Varies. Consistently shown to be a competent fighter, as well as a skilled driver/pilot, to the point where he was able to control a Mecha Bandicoot with no prior knowledge of how it works, even using it to defeat two beings of high intelligence. On the other hand, he blindly follows the orders of Cortex on two occasions, despite the latter's multiple attempts to kill him in the past, and was unable to see through a very obvious disguise made by Cortex. Crash also cannot speak coherently, with his speech being limited to a few key words (Woah, Pancakes, and oddly enough, Buenos Días) aside from basic grunts. However, this is most likely due to nobody teaching him how to speak, rather than him not possessing the mental capacity to do so.
Weaknesses: Aside from the aforementioned fluctuating intelligence, Crash does not know how to swim.
- Spin Attack: Crash's signature move where he spins like a top and attack enemies around him. He has an upgraded version called the Death Tornado Spin where he spins longer, faster, and can hover in the air.
- Super Charged Body Slam: Crash jumps and slam down on anything beneath him, being able to hurt anyone else near by.
- Super Slide: Crash performs his slide attack, which is faster and covers longer distance than his normal slide.
- Fruit Bazooka: Crash summons a bazooka that fires Wumpa Fruit as ammunition. This weapon proves to be powerful enough to defeat enemies, destroy machines, and even hurt Crunch.
- Magic Carpet: After breaking the Magic Carpet crate, Crash rides on a magic flying carpet and is capable of shooting energy projectiles.
