Crash: Mind Over Mutant

Crash Bandicoot: Mind over Mutant.
Concept art of the Slap-E hiding in its glove, without its glove and with its glove.
If a Slap-E cannot reach Crash, it may say "Error 404: Bandicoot not found", which is a reference to the once common "Error 404: Page not found" error message found when a web page is missing.

Their name is a pun on the word "slappy".
