The TNT Crate is an explosive Crate that appears in several Crash games. It is by far one of themost dangerous crates, even though destroying it is required to get all the crates in the level. Unlike Nitro crates, these have no detonators at the end of the level. Most methods of attacking it will make Crash Bandicoot end up dead but by jumping on it or giving it a headbutt underwater, it will count down from three to one before exploding giving a chance to escape.
In Crash Team Racing, when one is hit the driver must jump repeatedly to try and get it off their head before it explodes. If the driver succeeds, the crate goes flying behind them and explodes upon hitting the floor, damaging anyone too close. If they fail, it send the driver crashing. Ripper Roo uses TNT normally in his boss challenge, and Komodo Joe and Nitros Oxide use TNT as if it was on their head in conjunction with Nitro crates.
In Crash Twinsanity, the TNT crates are used to clear paths, by exploding near Nitro Crates, and take down nearby trees. During the battle with N. Gin, the TNT crates are used to explode the crows nest, and defeat the Mini-Boss. On the following scene, Rusty Walrus is the unique enemy in the entire game that isn't vulnerable to TNT crates nor Nitro Crates.
In Japan, this crate has a bomb symbol instead of the "TNT".
