Crash Bash (Oxide Ride)
The final boss fight in Crash Bash is called Oxide Ride, and it's against Nitros Oxide. To enter this boss fight, the player must have at least 22 trophies, 15 gems, and 12 crystals.
The battle has two phases. The first phase is a chase with Nitros Oxide. The second phase is Ballistix based, with Oxide as the only opponent.
In the first phase of the battle, the player must chase Oxide through an asteroid field similar to the final boss fight in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back. The player must dodge several hazards including asteroids, nitro crates, iron fences and Oxide's missiles.
In this phase, the player must beat Oxide at a Ballistix based game. If an iron ball passes through the player's or Oxide's goal, they will lose health. Occasionally, missiles will be fired from two cannons next to Oxide's goal. These will also make the player lose health. There are also red balls which will instantly kill the player if they touch it. These red balls also appear in the crystal challenge of Sky Balls.
