Bad news: We are in Pinstripe's power plant, and his henchmen don't let you pass easily! - Level description
Toxic Waste (ドラムかん ステップ lit. Drumcan Step in Japanese) is the twenty-first level (including boss fights) and is the fourth level of the third island in the original game and the Crash Bandicoot remaster of the first game. As the name suggests, it is full of toxic waste and is the only type of level to take use a lot of it. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Pinstripe's minions throw barrels of toxic waste to stop Crash. Some barrels just roll while others bounce. It is considered to be one of the hardest levels in the game. The blue gem is obtained here for breaking every crate without dying once.

Translation of Aku Aku Hints in the Japanese Version
From ancient times, jumping drumcans in games is interesting. Is it difficult? Advance with your feeling. If the hopping ones make you feel bitter, it's good to try dodging to the sides.
If you pass from here, you'll enter Pinstripe's room. When this guy is firing his gun, he is invincible, so hide patiently anyway. When he is replacing bullets, it's timing chance.
It is possible that this level is a parody of the video game since it involves Crash jumping over barrels.
The first Aku Aku hint in the Japanese version could be referring to this.
The barrels thrown in the level make an appearance on a track called " Crash Team Racing N. Gin Labs".
Similar barrels also appear in the sewer levels of .
