Wumpa Fruit are Crash's favorite food and a common object of all Crash Bandicoot games. Collecting 100 wumpa fruit will give Crash an extra life (platformers from Crash Bandicoot to Twinsanity). In Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage, Crash instead has infinite lives and certain amounts of wumpa fruit are needed to access some levels and buy trading cards. Crash Team Racing and Crash Nitro Kart uses wumpa fruit to 'Juice Up' the weapons that players pick up throughout a race or during a battle. In Crash of the Titans, they are used to replenish health. Also in Crash of the Titans, there is a golden Wumpa Fruit that gives the player another life. They are obtained when the player sacrifices a titan to a large mojo sphere or when a spybot is destroyed.

During Doctor N. Gin's boss fight in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, Crash launches wumpa fruit at N. Gin's mech to damage it. If Crash spins wumpa fruit, they will fly away. But, if Crash slides into wumpa fruit, he will collect it as normal. In Crash Bash, they were used in Crate Crush and Tank Wars for restoring health.

Entry in Crash 2's instruction booklet

The following info is taken from the Crash 2 instruction booklet.

"Collect 100 pieces of Wumpa Fruit and earn a free life (1-up)."




  • In Crash Bandicoot, if players happen to leave Crash standing for too long, Crash will hit himself with a Wumpa Fruit, revealing purple juice. However, this has been retconned from Crash Tag Team Racing onward, with the juice being yellow instead.
  • Crash Tag Team Racing is the only game not to have any Wumpa Fruit, unless Willie Wumpa Cheeks is counted as one.
  • In Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex, if players leave Crash standing for a while, he'll start juggling a Wumpa Fruit or pull one out of his ear.
  • In Crash of The Titans, Wumpa Fruit are instead used as items to restore health (possibly because their function was replaced with Mojo).
