Gorillas are common enemies that appear in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back. Their bodies contain different shades of purple and they have a larger body compared to most enemies encountered in Cortex Strikes Back. The gorillas primarily appear in the ancient ruin levels like Road to Ruin and Ruination.
The gorillas are buff enemies with very large torsos and arms, but very short legs. They have dark blue fur with a lighter patch of fur on their shoulder and a small lock of hair on top of their heads. The face and torso has visibile dark-yellow skin.
Gorillas stand on a stone pillar and constantly throw logs in front of them that bounce over the other stone pillars in front of them. The logs are thrown at them by some mysterious creature in the darkness under them, probably another gorilla. They can be defeated by a spin attack, making them loose balance and fall backward in the dark un der the platform they were previously standing on.
The gorillas act similar to Pinstripe's henchmen in the original Crash Bandicoot game, where they throw barrels towards Crash's direction in Toxic Waste. Crash must use the same method to defeat them as he did with the gorillas, in which he must dodge the barrels and spin the minions away when he gets close to them.
