The Cow is a weapon item in Crash Tag Team Racing. It is very powerful and if thrown at a racer, it will result in an instant KO. Once thrown, the cow will let out a loud "mooing" sound and once hitting the ground it will explode, leaving giant pieces of steaks airborne and a large cloud of smog present.
Hitting either one of these will result in an instant KO. A cow is also seen in two cutscenes. The first is a Die-O-Rama where the cow is Crash's cause of death, in which the cow farts in his face. The cow is later seen in the scene where Crash recovers a gem, he uses the cow as a walkway toward the gem and the cow then falls into lava.
