He is the title character and primary protagonist of the crash tag team racing series. Crash is an eastern barred Bandicoot who was genetically enhanced by the series’ main antagonist Cortex and Doctor Nitrus Brio’s Evolvo-Ray. Before escaping from Doctor Neo Cortex’s island fortress.
Crash became romantically attached to a female bandicoot named Tawna, who was another one of Cortex’s experiments. Crash’s separation from Tawna at the hands of Cortex serves as the primary root of Crash’s antagonization of Cortex”. Crash is a very emotional character who is quick to laugh and quick to cry
Crash acts as the opposition against Cortex and his schemes for world domination. While Crash has a number of offensive maneuvers at his disposal, his most distinctive technique is one in which he spins like a tornado at high speeds and knocks away almost anything that he strikes.
Crash has an extremely limited vocabulary, preferring to speak in unintelligible gibberish; the few English words he is capable of speaking include “Whoa!” (which he often exclaims upon being physically harmed), “Nina” and “pancakes”.
Crash is prone to impolite personal habits such as belching or scratching his posterior.
She is the younger sister of Crash Bandicoot. Just as her older brother, she was genetically engineered through Doctor Neo Cortex’s and Doctor Nitrus Brio’s Evolvo-Ray. Coco’s most notable trait is her high intelligence; her intelligence quotient is said to be as much as 164.
Coco has a heroic personality and a fearless nature, as she is willing to take any chance to help her family save the world from evil.
He is the older brother to Crash and Coco, he was also genetically engineered through Doctor Neo Cortex.He was created to defeat crash but he failed, and after his defeat he had a change of mind, and he join his sibling to fight against evil. He is known for his muscular body, his bravery and strength to face anybody that comes between him and his siblings.
Doctor Neo Cortex
He is the primary antagonist of the Crash Tag Team Racing series. Cortex is a mad scientist and terrorist who seeks to achieve world domination as an act of vengeance for the ridicule he has suffered in the past. To achieve this, he mutated animals into his soldiers, he eventually creates Crash Bandicoot, the titular character of Crash Tag Team Racing, but soon rejects him as unworthy of being in his army and removes him from his castle.
Cortex’s plans for world domination are often hampered by Crash along with other characters. Crash’s constant interference has made eliminating Crash one of Cortex’s top priorities along with world domination.
Doctor N. Gin
He is the right-hand man of Doctor Neo Cortex, N. Gin went on to become a world-renowned physicist in the defense industry. However, due to a budget cut, one of his missile projects ended up faulty and, as a result, went awry, lodging itself into N. Gin’s head.
With his intellect, N. Gin was able to stabilize the weapon and reconstruct it as a life support system at the cost of his sanity. Because the missile is still live, it activates whenever N. Gin is stressed or angry, leaving him with a large headache. Shortly after the missile incident, Doctor N. Gin was taken in by Doctor Neo Cortex to help him with world domination.
She is the niece of Doctor Neo Cortex. Nina is known to be more ambitious and egotistical than her uncle cortex. Despite her self-admittedly antisocial demeanor, she is said to have a love for animals. Nina’s most distinguishing features are her spring-loaded steel bionic hands, which were given to her by her uncle Doctor Cortex.
The Full Story of Crash Tag Team Racing
The game opens with a pair of chicken sports commentators named Chick Gizzard Lips and his hip co-worker Stew, announcing the farewell race of Von Clutch’s Motor World. Long ago, Ebenezer Von Clutch, the deranged German cyborg genius fabricated the ultimate auto-racing theme park.
For years, the park’s racetracks have wreaked terror on its participants in ways too gruesome to describe on regulated television. But now the park’s Power Gems, which have kept the park active, have been stolen, giving Von Clutch only a few hours to get them back.
In the process of finding more racers to help him, meanwhile, Crash Bandicoot, Coco Bandicoot and Crunch Bandicoot are escaping from Doctor Neo Cortex, Doctor N. Gin, and Nina Cortex through a road, they literally crash in, resulting in Von Clutch recruiting them for assistance.
At first, Cortex is unwilling to help Von Clutch, but then it is explained that whoever finds and returns all the missing Power Gems will win the ownership of the park. Even Von Clutch’s own beloved Black Power Gem, which is his life source, is gone.
Without it, Von Clutch will die in a matter of hours. N. Gin informs Cortex that this strange theme park is fertile grounds for them to “plant their new seed of evil”, with Cortex believing this would lead to the park becoming their new base of operations, meaning they have an unlimited supply of churros and eliminate the Bandicoots.
From there, the gang is introduced to Pasadena O’Possum, a professional racer hired by Von Clutch to ensure his continued ownership of the park, and Willie Wumpa Cheeks, the “jolly park mascot” of Von Clutch’s Motor World and the producer of “Wumpa Whip”, the parks most popular beverage.
After Crash finds and returns all the missing Power Gems and officially wins himself the ownership of the park, a bandaged Cortex suspects some unsavory person is upstaging his efforts to make the park his own.
This is confirmed when Coco deduces that whoever stole the Power Gems in the first place had some connection to Wumpa Whip, due to, per Pasadena, the presence of a trail of Wumpa Whip at the scene of every stolen Power Gem in the park.
Crash is suspected of stealing the Gems due to his heavy consumption of the drink, but Willie Wumpa Cheeks admits that he stole the Power Gems and the Black Power Gem, though without any given motive as to why he stole them. Von Clutch is struck with disbelief.
With the Black Power Gem in his possession, Willie flees to Astro Land, saying that they can “look for [him] in the sky”. He prepares to blast off into outer space through Astro Land’s largest rocket. Crash Bandicoot decides to stop Willie Wumpa Cheeks, retrieve the Black Power Gem, and save the weakened Ebenezer von Clutch.
In Astro Land, Crash sees Willie entering the rocket, preparing for liftoff. But when Crash pulls a nearby lever, the launch is aborted. Crunch opens the rocket door and grabs Willie by the nose. Just when they’re about to interrogate Willie about the location of the Black Power Gem, somebody shoots him from afar, resulting in a liquefied Willie.
The culprit is Doctor Neo Cortex, N. Gin, and Nina inside a battleship. Cortex is prepared to obliterate the Bandicoots for ruining his plans for using Von Clutch’s amusement enterprise as the ideal strategic cover.
After Cortex attempts to destroy the Bandicoots with a machine gun mounted on his ship, Crash tosses a chicken into the ship’s main rotor, causing the ship to behave erratically and unpredictably. Cortex promises Crash they’ll meet again as he flies off in his malfunctioning ship.
As the Bandicoots are handed the deed to the park, Coco decides that the deed should be returned to where it belongs: to Ebenezer von Clutch. But Pasadena informs them that that’s an impossibility. Because the Black Power Gem was never recovered, it is apparent that Von Clutch will remain deactivated.
As everyone mourns the loss of their dear friend — all except Crash, who is attempting to find and consume more Wumpa Whip from Willie’s nose — Crash starts choking on something. He coughs up Von Clutch’s Black Power Gem, which jettisons into the slot, reviving Von Clutch.
He thanks Crash for all he’s done, and gives free lifetime passes to Von Clutch’s Motor World to all the Bandicoots. Unfortunately, crash inadvertently ejects the Black Power Gem, thus deactivating Von Clutch, after giving Von Clutch a friendly slap on the back.
Before anyone has a chance to react, Crash jumps into the orange car he was seen driving at the beginning and drives off, leaving Coco, Crunch and Pasadena behind.
