Crash riding a hog
The Warthog, or simply Hog, is an animal that appears throughout the Crash Bandicoot series. The hog primarily appears in the original Crash Bandicoot, where Crash uses it as a means of transportation in the levels Hog Wild and Whole Hog. In these levels, Crash will mount a ride on a hog through a jungle while facing many obstacles. Crash must control the hog while facing many obstacles include tribesmen, spiked pillars, and rotisserie hogs. If he crashes into any of these obstacles or falls into a pit, then he will lose a life and the hog, and must return to the nearest checkpoint. The hog was also an enemy in Road to Nowhere and The High Road, where it will run back and forth across the bridge. Crash cannot defeat the hogs in this level with any attacks and it is best to avoid them.
The hog makes a cameo appearance in Crash Nitro Kart on the track Tiny Temple, where some will appear in several outlets in the track as background elements. Hogs also make an appearance in Crash Twinsanity, as enemies in the level Totem Hokum, where they attack by charging at Crash.
Hogs would have appeared as enemies in Crash Landed.
