Rusty Walrus (ウォーラス in japanese) is a genetically enhanced walrus who appears only in Crash Twinsanity. He works for Doctor N. Gin as his Battleship's cook. Rusty is voiced by Dwight Schultz in the English version, and by Hajime Iijima in the Japanese version of the game.
Crash Twinsanity Edit
Not much is known about Rusty. What is known is that he is a chef under the employ of Dr. N. Gin (as depicted from his apron). After defeating the latter, Rusty appears from another room, sees Crash and says, "Ah yummy, fresh meat for my pot!". The chase that ensues is much like the traditional boulder dash levels of previous games. Obstacles include holes in the floor, Nitro Crates (which Rusty is surprisingly immune to) and burning-hot steam. It is unknown what became of him after N. Gin accidentally set off the major TNT explosion, but since he was immune to the nitro crates, he was probably immune to the TNT's explosion. Actually, on the High Sea High Jinks level gallery Crash is shown falling through a hole in the floor and landing in Rusty's pot. He does not show up at all in other Crash games.
His theme music is an a cappella version of The Black-Eyed Peas song "Out The Door" and the Hebrides Overture.
- Rusty Walrus is an homage of the famous NASCAR driver Rusty Wallace. This is fitting, considering he was originally planned to be in Crash Team Racing.
- Rusty, the triceratops, the giant bear, the dragon and the yeti are all related in the way that they are in chase levels and they are immune to nitro crates and other dangers.
- There is a glitch in his chase where if Crash spins to his side he will be behind Rusty making the chase easier as he will run into all the Nirto Crates on that floor.
- In a glitch with Crash taking Cortex everywhere, Crash brings Cortex with him to fight N. Gin. After N. Gin is defeated, both Cortex and Crash fall and meet Rusty Walrus and Crash will have to grab the crystal with Cortex to escape from Rusty.
- Rusty would have appeared in Twinsanity's cancelled sequel in a cooking show, where he would have chased Crash again.
