The Scepter appears in Crash Nitro Kart. Players can earn a scepter two times; once by beating the game with Team Bandicoot and once by beating the game with Team Cortex. By getting both scepters, players will unlock Velo as a playable character. When earning the scepter with Team Bandicoot, players will save Earth, and members of the team will use it to teleport back home. They will take Polar with them. When earning it with Team Cortex, Dr. Cortex will try to use it to get his team back home, but the scepter will malfunction and teleport them to Terra instead. Tiny Tiger will then try to repair it, but he will become the king of Terra instead, which will annoy Cortex.
