Purple ? and ! Crates appear only in Crash Bash.
Purple ? crates appear in
Drain Bash, Ring Ding, and Mallet Mash. In Drain Bash, they must be kicked or thrown to release their contents. If the opponent is empty-handed and gets hit with a purple ? crate, nothing happens. When kicked or thrown onto another crate or the ground, either a wumpa fruit or a weapon will appear. These weapons are the homing energy orbs, eight way missiles, or sonic rings. In Ring Ding, they contain either hover boots or the vacuum cleaner. In Mallet Mash, they contain either speedy boots or a shock wave.
Purple ! crates are another type of crate exclusive to Crash Bash. It appears in all of the
Pogo Pandemonium levels except for Pogo-a-Gogo. After landing on this crate, all of the player's squares will turn into points.
