Tnt

A TNT Crate.

The TNT Crate is an explosive crate that appears in many Crash games. As its name suggests, it is filled with TNT/dynamite. It is by far one of the most dangerous crates, even though destroying it is required to get all the crates in the level. Unlike nitro crates, there are no crates designed for detonating all the TNT crates in a level. Most methods of attacking it will make the player lose a life or Aku Aku mask. However, by jumping on it or giving it a headbutt underwater or in space, it will count down from three to one before exploding, giving a chance to escape.

In the Polar riding levels of Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, TNT crates start the timer automatically without Crash touching them.

In Crash Team Racing and Crash Nitro Kart, 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 sends the driver crashing. Ripper Roo uses TNT crates normally in his boss challenge, and Komodo Joe and Nitros Oxide use TNT crates as if they were 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, he throws TNT crates, and 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, to which Rusty doesn't get defeated.

In Japan, this crate has a bomb symbol instead of the "TNT". In Skylanders Imaginators, Crash's attacks include throwing TNT crates and spinning them into foes.

Trivia

  • The big red TNT crates from Mind Over Mutant countdown from proximity (even from the side) as opposed to only touching the top like in most other games.
  • The TNT crate was first introduced in the second level of the first Crash game.
  • In the prototype version of the first Crash game, the TNT crate doesn't have a countdown until it explodes, but it just flashes, while sounds are emitted slower then faster, similar to how the Big TNT crates explode.
