Electric Lab Assistants are variants of lab assistants that appear in Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and the N. Sane Trilogy. They will shock Crash if he runs into them while they are sparking.

Crash Bandicoot

Their only appearance is in The Lab. They appear on platforms with pits surrounding them and will run after Crash and attempt to electrocute him. When the lab assistants are not electrified, they can be spun back until they fall into the surrounding pit while screaming. Crash can also avoid them by jumping around them.

Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back

These lab assistants appear in Rock It and Pack Attack. Unlike the previous game, they now look half robotic and half human, and don't approach the player. They must be spun into a fiery force field in order to continue, and will scream just as they did in the previous game.

Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy

Both types of electric lab assistants reprise their roles in the Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy remasters of the first and second games, respectively.




  • In the Japanese version, the level "The Lab" is named after this lab assistant.
  • The fact that the Electric Lab Assistants generate electricity is a hint that points to them being androids, as well as having a half robotic face.
