Polar Bears are enemies from the Crash Bandicoot series. They make appearances in many games and only in the snow levels of each game. Polar bears make their first appearance in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back.
Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back
In Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, there are giant polar bears that chase Crash Bandicoot in the level Un-Bearable and go so far to a point that they will fall into a pit or get stuck. The fourth polar bear chases him while he rides on Polar. It is implied that these bears are Polar's relatives.
Crash Team Racing
The polar bears make a cameo appearance in Crash Team Racing. They appear to be the same giant polar bears that chased Crash in the second game. In the race track Polar Pass, they are seen frozen in giant blocks of ice in a wall that the racers travel around.
In Crash Bash, polar bears would be used to push the player's opponents off the ledge of the icy arena. Another polar bear in is named the Bearminator and this time it is a boss. The Bearminator moves back and forth inside a submarine in an arctic ocean. He will shoot out mechanical polar bears from his cannon and they will try to push the character of the ledge. The player must push them off before they do.
Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure
Polar bears are enemies first seen in the Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure level Snow Crash. They do nothing more than walk back and fourth to get in Crash's way. They can easily be defeated with a jump, spin, slide, or belly flop.
Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex
In Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex, there is a polar bear that races Crash in Ice Station Bandicoot atop a flying carpet. Crash will be slowed down if he makes contact with him. As seen in an old picture of an early version of Ice Station Bandicoot, he would have been an enemy, seeing as no other enemies appear in the other early photos of Ice Station Bandicoot.
