Dingodile is a major character in the Crash Bandicoot video game series. He is a genetically enhanced combination between a dingo and a crocodile with a heavy Australian accent. He was originally a villain who served the series main antagonist, Dr. Neo Cortex until he eventually retired from villainy to open his own diner.
He was voiced by the late William Hootkins in Crash Bandicoot: Warped, then by the late David Anthony Pizzuto in Crash Team Racing, then by Dwight Schultz in Crash Nitro Kart, then by Nolan North in Crash of the Titans and by Fred Tatasciore in Crash Bandicoot: N-Sane Trilogy. In Japanese dub from the game, he was voiced by Keisuke Ishida in Crash Bash.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time
Sometime after the events of Warped, Dingodile seemingly lost his loyalties as one of Dr. Cortex's henchmen and retired from his villainous ways to open his own diner at Mosquito Marsh. However when his business competitor Papa Batfield managed to destroy his restaurant, Dingodile bared arms once more to get his revenge. He used his Vacuum Cannon to dismantle Papa Batfield's juice mixing vats and blow up his juice cellar before an interdimensional portal called a Quantum Rift suddenly pulled Dingodile into an alternate dimension. For much of the game, Dingodile attempts to return home while inadvertently helping Crash and Coco on their adventure through the multiverse.
Dingodile eventually ended up in Bermugula's Orbit where he decided to tag along with the bandicoots to defeat N. Tropy, and afterwards inquire about going back to his world. He is told that the Quantum Masks can only take him as far as Neon City in the Sn@xx Dimension until they have rested enough to send everyone home. Dingodile used his time in Neon City to grab a bite to eat with Tawna before his old boss Dr. Neo Cortex kidnapped Kupuna-Wa to travel back in time. He helped Crash and Coco go after the villain while he stayed in the Sn@xx Dimension until he was finally sent back to Mosquito Marsh where he rebuilt and reopened his diner.
Crash Team Racing
In Crash Team Racing, Dingodile appears as a playable racer. He can be selected in the adventure mode, where he is one of eight characters competing to stop Nitros Oxide from conquering the world.
In Crash Bash, Dingodile appears as playable character and anti-hero (with Tiny Tiger). Dingodile is summoned with a handful of other villains to assist in the battle between Aku Aku and Uka Uka. Since Uka Uka has too many allies, Dingodile and Tiny are moved to Aku Aku's side to even things out.
Crash Nitro Kart
Dingodile is featured as an unlockable character in Crash Nitro Kart. Shortly before Velo's circuit, N. Trance kidnapped Dingodile and hypnotized him into racing for his team. In the adventure mode, he appears as an enemy racer and is allied with Velo.
Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled
Dingodile returns in the remaster for Crash Team Racing serving the same role he had in the original game. He is a Speed class driver.
