green gem, also known as the Emerald is a rare type of gem in the Crash Bandicoot series. Along with the other colored gems, this gem is very powerful and opens up secret areas.
In the original Crash game, where the colored gems were earned on the same way as the clear gems, the green gem is obtained by breaking all the
crates and not losing a life in The Lost City (or Hog Wild in the Japanese release). It opens up the green gem paths in Jungle Rollers and Castle Machinery.
The green gem appears a bit flat and oblong. In this game, it can be obtained in
The Eel Deal by completing the secret course behind a fake wall. It opens up the green gem route in Ruination and part of the multicolor gem route in Spaced Out.
The sprite of the green gem is exactly the same as in
Cortex Strikes Back. It can be obtained by completing the death route in Flaming Passion. It opens up the green gem route in Gone Tomorrow and part of the multicolor gem route in Bug Lite.
The five colored gems from the latter two games appear in
Crash Team Racing, four of which also appear in the successor game, Crash Nitro Kart. There are five gem cups, one of each color, with the Green Gem Cup consisting of Roo's Tubes, Coco Park, Polar Pass, and Cortex Castle. The player must collect the four green CTR tokens to unlock the cup.
The player is awarded the green gem upon victory in the cup. This also unlocks
Papu Papu as a playable character.
The gems awarded in
Crash Bash are all green. Each minigame contains a green gem and it can be won by winning a harder version of this minigame. It takes 25 gems unlock Keg Kaboom.
The green gem gets a different sprite, becoming more clear and round in the top (with a sharp bottom). It can be obtained by completing the death route in
Wizards and Lizards. It opens up the green gem route in Cortex Vortex.
The green gem is located in
Sunken City. It's located to the left of the start of the level, but to access it, Crash must hit an ! crate, which turns an outline crate into a TNT crate, and then backtrack to the green gem area. This bears some resemblance to the way the red gem is acquired in Crash 3's Deep Trouble, except that there isn't a long path leading to the gem. Acquiring this gem unlocks a green gem path at the end of Just Hangin'.
There is a green gem shard in each of the first four Arabian levels. Acquiring these unlocks the level
101 Arabian Kites, which contains the game's green gem.
It has the same role as in
CTR, except only three races are featured. The three races are Jungle Boogie, Deep Sea Driving, and Out of Time. The player will, as in CTR, receive the green gem upon completion. The green gem also unlocks Zem as a playable character.
The green gem reappears in the
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy remasters of the first three games where it reprises the same role it had in the original versions of those games. It is customly drawn on the pause screen and looks the same throughout all three games.
