Physical Appearance

Fake Crash basically looks identical to Crash Bandicoot, only with bushier eyebrows, a larger nose and sharper teeth. His eyes are also not as wide in comparison and have smaller pupils.


Crash Bandicoot 2: N. Tranced

Fake Crash was captured by N. Tropy and brainwashed by N. Trance to help them achieve world domination. Eventually, Fake Crash is confronted by his heroic doppelganger Crash Bandicoot and they engaged in battle. Despite matching all of Crash's abilities, Fake Crash is defeated and isn't seen again until the N. Trance boss fight. Fake Crash assisted Crash by pouring lava on N. Trance (or anyone beneath him) during the boss fight's second faze. After N. Tropy's defeat, Fake Crash took a photograph of the heroes as a memento.

Crash Nitro Kart

Fake Crash appeared as a playable racer on Crash's team. He can be unlocked by doing 50 or more boosts on a track while playing as Cortex's team in adventure mode. In the Game Boy Advance version of the game, Fake Crash is unlocked by finding him off road on the track Out of Time.



  • In CTR (Crash Team Racing) for some reason, he has some connection to Uka-Uka.
  • Fake Crash is a playable character exclusive for the japanese version of Crash Bash.
