“It's all about the crates! Smash the boxes open to get at all the secret goodness inside, like Wumpa Fruit or 1-Ups. But not all crates are nicey nicey, so be careful!”
—Manual, Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex
Crates are items in the Crash Bandicoot series that supply wumpa fruit, special abilities, extra lives, special equipment, or just placed as a trap for Crash. Crates have appeared in every Crash Bandicoot game up to date.
