Sparky Tentaclebot Units are enemies encountered in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure, and the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy remaster of the second game. They are small bug-shaped robots that wander back and forth in Crash's path.

They have a defensive strategy to electrocute themselves by bringing up their six legs together, and create a small electrical current so that Crash can not attack.

However, when the robot pulls up its six legs to electrocute Crash, he can Spin or Slide into them to defeat them. When the robot has its legs extended Crash can attack with a jump or a Belly-Flop.




  • These enemies go by the name of "fred" in the code of Cortex Strikes Back.
