Tiny Tiger is a boss in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure, Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage, Crash of the Titans, and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy remaster of the second and third games.
Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back
Tiny appears as the third boss, sent by N. Brio to prevent Crash from gathering the Crystals for Cortex.
A door bearing Tiny's face will appear, soon bashed open by Tiny himself. After a vicious roar, he will jump into a room with nine green platforms, and the fight will begin. Tiny will jump from platform to platform following the player, and the player must avoid him. The player must lure Tiny toward a red platform to win the fight, since when a platform turns red, it falls. Once Tiny falls three times the boss fight is won by the player and will be advanced to the fourth warp room. If Crash and Tiny land on the same platform, the player loses a life and must start the boss fight over again.
- In the Crash 2 prototype, Tiny's name is not displayed on his health bar.
Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped
Tiny Tiger (けんとうし タイニータイガー lit. Gladiator Tiny Tiger in Japanese) is a boss fight held in a colosseum in Rome. Tiny is the first boss and has three hit points. In addition, Dr. Cortex is watching the fight. It begins with Cortex waving to the crowd of Roman lab assistants. Then the camera pulls over to Tiny who is chained between poles. Tiny roars, cracks the poles and frees himself. He then sees Crash, grabs a trident, and the fight begins. As in Crash 2, he jumps after Crash five times and tries to stab him. However, if Crash dodges his final attack, the trident becomes stuck in the ground, leaving Tiny open for a strike. When Crash attacks Tiny he jumps onto a platform and many lions come out of the dungeons below him in a straight line. Jump them or spin them to get past them. The pattern is repeated two more times with the only difference being that the amount of times he jumps after Crash increases by one each time he is attacked, the amount of time it takes him to free his weapon from the ground and the number of lions he summons. When defeated, the power Super Charged Body Slam is awarded to the player. Next Aku Aku informs the player that the gate to the second warp room is open.
In the N. Sane Trilogy remake, it should be noted that Coco cannot visit Tiny Tiger's level and is barred from the other boss fights as well.
Tip: You can avoid most of the lions by standing on the left side of the arena.
Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure
Tiny (とにかく にげろ！ lit. Escape Anyway! in Japanese) is the third boss and has three hit points. Crash must hit Tiny whenever his spear gets stuck in a platform; once he is hit, he will hop up and come back down with another spear and start fighting. After being hit, a platform will fall, he will hop up to get another spear, and after the player hits him the final time, he falls of the platform, and the player wins the fight.
Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage
Tiny is the second boss and has three hitpoints and will controlling a tank. Crash will be in a tank too and he will be surrounded by walls that go up and down. Crash can use this to his advantage to shoot Tiny's tank while the walls go down. Repeat this two more times and Crash wins.
Crash of the Titans
Tiny is only a miniboss, where he stands on top of a gate locked with four targets, he will then send out titans to defeat Crash. Crash now must use Snipe to shoot the targets. When all four targets are gone, he jumps off, running away. Then Crash must jack a Shellephant using a Magmadon and chase him along rocks and breaking through rocks standing in his way. Once Crash gets across the rocks Tiny will be cornered and defeated.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
Reprises his boss from the second and third games.
- Originally the Tiny boss fight of Crash Bandicoot 3 had a strange blue screen near Cortex and in the battle of Tiny in Crash Bandicoot 3 Tiny had a Crash Bandicoot 2 icon.
