Rats are enemies encountered throughout the Crash Bandicoot series. Rats made their debut in the first Crash Bandicoot game.
Rats appear more in the sequel, in the levels Road to Ruin, Ruination, Night Fight and Totally Fly. Rats in this game have big eyes, this is probably because they are found at night. Rats behave differently as well, some stay still others move back and forth. A different type of Rat also appears in the sewer levels. It is armed from the side and is required to be jumped on to be defeated. Another type of Rat emerge from the ground in the pits of the Jungle themed levels in groups, and Crash must spin them in order to advance. One of the jungle levels is named The Pits because of this.
Rats appear in the sewer levels of the game. They simply move from left to right.
Rats appear as trading cards in the game.
Rats were not seen again until Crash Twinsanity. Rats are found in almost every part of the game, they are first seen in the caves of N. Sanity Island, around N. Gin's Battleship, on the grounds of the Academy of Evil, in the underground Boiler Room and finally on the rooftops of the academy. The only place they do not appear is obviously in the Tenth Dimension, since there is no native fauna on Twinsanity Island.
