The Barricading Assistant is a Lab Assistant variant that appear in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex, and the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy remaster of the second game.


They look like regular Lab Assistants, with white coats and light brown air, but they held a big shield in front of them, with a big "N" on the front.


They stand still in one place and push in front of them with the sield. If a player approaches them with any attack other than the slide, they will push them backward and make a little hop forward.

The slide attack will make them loose balance and make a small hop backward. They can only be defeated by pushing them backward until they fall into a bottomless pit.
