Note:
I do not own the Crash Bandicoot series. They are owned by Sony Computer Entertainment, Universal Interactive Studios, Konami, Vivendi Universal Games, Sierra Entertainment and Activision. I'm just a fan of the series. And I created this page.

Below is a gallery of some of the various models of some of the Crash Bandicoot characters, and a vertical side by side comparison between them. Note that this only covers the models that I consider worthy of inclusion. Any models that I dislike will not be included.

This page is a direct follow up of Volume One. While Volume One consisted of main characters, this page covers up recurring characters from the Crash Bandicoot series. Nine recurring characters.

These characters are Polar, Doctor Nefarious Tropy, Ripper Roo, Doctor Nitrus Brio, Pura, Fake Crash Bandicoot, Nitros Oxide, Papu Papu, and Pinstripe Potoroo. Enjoy! :)

Polar CTR Crash Team Racing
CTR: Crash Team Racing
(Intro)
This model is very similar to the previous one, but it is more detailed and more polygonal. Polar's eyes have blue irises, the his fur is whiter.
CTR Crash Team Racing Polar
CTR: Crash Team Racing
(In-Kart)
All in-kart models of Crash Team Racing are much more polygonal versions than usual, since 8 of the usual models on screen at the same time would be more than the PS1 could handle.
CNK Polar
Crash Nitro Kart,
Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage
This model is very similar to the first one, but it is much more detailed. Polar's nose is shinier, the paw style is different, and his eyes are blue. Polar's fur is whiter and he seems to be more slender and less chunky than in the previous games. Polar wears a pink and yellow helmet with an antennae on top, as he has been brainwashed by N. Trance in this game. He is more insane, and psychotic in this game, as a result of the brainwashing. Polar also shows traits of cowardice, as he keeps his head down inside his kart during a particularly high jump when racing.
Polar Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy This model is a much more detailed and 3-D resemblance of the Naughty Dog models. It is also very similar to the previous model which is also by Vicarious Visions. The fur is whiter and much more realistic than on the original model. Vicarious Visions created this model for the N. Sane Trilogy, a remaster of the first three Crash games.

Doctor Nefarious Tropy

Models: Appearances: Information:
Crash 3 N. Tropy
Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped
(Promotional Model),
Crash Bandicoot 2: N-Tranced,
Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage
(Trading Card)
As this is a promotional model, it is much more detailed than the model that appears in the game.
Crash 3 N. Tropy Head in time Vortex
Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped
(Head in Time Vortex)
The Head in Time vortex model bears little to no visual resemblance to Doctor Nefarious Tropy's other Naughty Dog models. So a model comparison is not possible. This model is much higher in polygons. The head is also more detailed than on the model that appears in the game.
Doctor Nefarious Tropy Crash Bandicoot 3 Warped
Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped,
CTR: Crash Team Racing,
Crash Bandicoot 2: N-Tranced
Doctor Nefarious Tropy's original design. Visually there isn't much of a difference from the promotional Crash 3 model, except this model is less detailed.
CTR Crash Team Racing Doctor Nefarious Tropy
CTR: Crash Team Racing
(In-Kart)
All in-kart models of Crash Team Racing are much more polygonal versions than usual, since 8 of the usual models on screen at the same time would be more than the PS1 could handle.
The Wrath of Cortex Doctor Nefarious Tropy
Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex In comparison to the original design, N. Tropy no longer has the large watch on his left wrist. His head is slimmer and his eyes have stretched out irises and green sclerae. They also don't move. N. Tropy's tuning fork is much wider and pointier, resembling a bident more than anything. The colour of his armour is somewhat duller, and the little tuning fork on his helmet is now facing sideways. N. Tropy's face is a bit more vertical and his mouth is narrower.
CNK N. Tropy
Crash Nitro Kart,
Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage
This model is very similar to the original design, but it is more detailed. The armour is much brighter, and the shoulders are chunkier. The pistons on Doctor Nefarious Tropy appear bolted on the bottom, and the clocks on his hat and wrist are bright yellow instead of green.
Dr. Nefarious Tropy Crash Twinsanity
Crash Twinsanity Doctor Nefarious Tropy is much shinier and more polished than before. He now wears leg armour and his left arm is either robotic or wrapped in a huge metal casing. There are three buttons visible on his lab coat instead of two. Like all Crash Twinsanity models, N. Tropy has five fingers instead of the usual four. However unlike other Twinsanity models, his left arm still only has four fingers, which suggests that it is really a robotic replacement. His eyes now have yellow sclerae.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Doctor Nefarious Tropy
Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy With more detail than ever before, Doctor Nefarious Tropy mostly has his original design back. The number of bolts have greatly increased. The nose is bigger, and the jaw is a bit smaller. The shape of the clock on N. Tropy's body is now a regular square instead of a rounded square. The parts connecting the hands to the shoulders are now bronze instead of silver. The hands of the clock on N. Tropy's body are also different. The clock on N. Tropy's hat is also much higher in detail. The tuning fork is much more detailed as well. Vicarious Visions created this model for the N. Sane Trilogy, a remaster of the first three Crash games.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Doctor Nefarious Tropy Head in Vortex
Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy
(Head in Time Vortex)
A much more detailed and 3-D resemblance of the original Head in Time vortex model from Warped. The Head in Time vortex model presented here greatly resembles the previous model. Besides the missing body, there doesn't really seem to be any visual differences between this model and the previous one. Vicarious Visions created this model for the N. Sane Trilogy, a remaster of the first three Crash games.

Crash 2 Ripper Roo
Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back
(Promotional Model)
As this is a promotional model, it is much more detailed than the models that appear in the game. Ripper Roo has grown blonde hair, tucked inside his new top hat, and a moustache. He additionally has a pair of reading glasses, a bow tie, and a cane, which acts as a Pogo-Stick. Ripper Roo is notably more collected and shows signs of great intelligence, studying subjects like physics in his new library as a hobby. This all blows up quite literally with a well placed TNT explosion.
Ripper Roo Crash 2
Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back
(First Form)
Visually there isn't much of a difference from the promotional Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back model, except this model is less detailed.
Ripper Roo Crash Bandicoot 2 Cortex Strikes Back
Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back
(Second Form)
When hurt by an explosion, Ripper Roo reverts to his usual, demented self, losing all additional props and revealing messy hair. His appearance is somewhat similar to Albert Einstein. Note that the tongue seems to have a bubblier texture than the original model does.
CTR Ripper Roo Promo
CTR: Crash Team Racing
(Promotional Model)
As this is a promotional model, it is more detailed than the models that appear in the game.
CTR Ripper Roo
CTR: Crash Team Racing
(Podium Model)
With more detail than any other previous in-game model, Ripper Roo has his original look back. Without counting the higher number of polygons, the only real difference is the eyes which are yellow, googly, and more demented looking. The eyes have spirals instead of pupils, much like the promotional design from Crash Bandicoot. The model used in the cut-scenes greatly the podium model but the head is lower in polygons.
CTR Ripper Roo In-Kart (Front)
CTR Ripper Roo In-Kart (Back)
CTR: Crash Team Racing

Doctor Nitrus Brio - Crash 1
Crash Bandicoot,
Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back
Doctor Nitrus Brio's original design.
Crash Bandicoot Doctor Nitrus Brio Hulk
Crash Bandicoot
(Hulk form)
This is Doctor Nitrus Brio's hulk form from Crash Bandicoot which he turns into two thirds of the way through his boss fight. N. Brio's skin has turned green, and his lab coat has been ripped off, since his hulk body form was much too big to wear it. Other than that, N. Brio bears little to visual resemblance to his usual form, so a model comparison in most cases is not possible.
Crash 2 Nitrus Brio
Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back
(Warp Room Hologram)
The Warp Room Hologram model bears little to no visual resemblance to Doctor Nitrus Brio's usual Naughty Dog model. So a model comparison is not possible. This model is higher in detail and seemingly higher in polygons.

The bags under his eyes are reddish, and his eyebrows are lighter. N. Brio's head is a bit shorter than on the original design, with wrinkles on his forehead, and his shoes are black instead of brown. He is wearing a new outfit that appears to be a combination between his outfit from Crash Twinsanity and the one from the original game.

Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy
(Hulk form)
This is Doctor Nitrus Brio's hulk form from the N. Sane Trilogy which he turns into seven tenths of the way through his boss fight. N. Brio's skin has turned green, and his lab coat has been ripped off, since his hulk body form was much too big to wear it. His shoes have also turned brown like in the Naughty Dog games. Other than that, N. Brio bears little to visual resemblance to his usual form, so a model comparison in most cases is not possible. This model is a much more detailed and 3-D resemblance of the original hulk model. Vicarious Visions created this model for the N. Sane Trilogy, a remaster of the first three Crash games.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Doctor Nitrus Brio Hologram

Pura Nitro Kart
Crash Nitro Kart The Crash Nitro Kart model is similar to the original design, but it is lighter in colour, with more teeth visible. The V-shaped stripes from Pura's Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex model were kept on his forehead, and his muzzle has some new stripes as well. This model is more detailed and less polygonal than the original model. The stripes on his fur are now black instead of brown, and the white fur is now cream. Pura wears a pink and yellow helmet with an antennae on top, as he has been brainwashed by N. Trance in this game. He is more insane, and psychotic in this game, as a result of the brainwashing. Pura also shows traits of cowardice, as he keeps his head down inside his kart during a particularly high jump when racing.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Pura
Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy This may very well be the most detailed model of the lot. Pura's fur is now lighter than ever before. The fur on his ears are now black.

Fake Crash is a playable character in the Japanese version of Crash Bash. His model is a slight modification from Crash Bandicoot's (even the animations are the same). The only changes made were the textures for the eyes and mouth, different eyebrows and a bigger nose. It resembles the Naughty Dog models but with much less detail and no change of facial expressions.
N-Tranced Fake Crash Bandicoot
Crash Bandicoot 2: N-Tranced
(Promotional 3-D Model)
Because of this model's similarities to the original Naughty Dog model, it is often mistaken for representing the latter, though it is a model in it's own right, made by Vicarious Visions. Though Vicarious Visions used the Naughty Dog model to extract the animation frames they needed, they still created a low detail model of their own, to add animation frames they couldn't find in the previous games. Fake Crash's arms are longer than before, his body has become more polygonal, allowing for separate fingers, the tummy button is smaller, and the eyebrows are less bushy and are wing shaped. During his and N. Trance's boss fights, his pants are green instead of blue. This model presented here is in 3-D while the version in the Game Boy Advance is in 2-D.
Crash Bandicoot 2 N-Tranced Fake Crash Bandicoot
Crash Bandicoot 2: N-Tranced Visually there isn't much of a difference from the promotional Crash Bandicoot 2: N-Tranced model, except this model is less detailed. This model presented here is in 2-D while the promotional model is in 3-D.

His eyebrows are now brown instead of black. Fake Crash's Crash Nitro Kart model seems to be his most detailed design to date.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Fake Crash Bandicoot
Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy This model is quite similar to the previous one, but the colouration is more similar to the Naughty Dog models, though the colours are a bit duller. Instead of green pants, Fake Crash now wears blue board shorts with laces, much like Crash Bandicoot for the N. Sane Trilogy. The fur is more realistic, the eyebrows are bushier, and he has more teeth showing because of the shorter lower lip. Vicarious Visions created this model for the N. Sane Trilogy, a remaster of the first three Crash games.

Nitro Kart Nitrous Oxide
Crash Nitro Kart In comparison to the promotional and cut-scenes models from Crash Team Racing, Nitrous Oxide's head is much narrower and has a single pipe on the back instead of two, as well as one golden bit on each side of his head instead of two. His eyes are set further apart from each other and his legs are now speckled. The ornament on his jacket is now purple.
Nitros Oxide Crash Twinsanity
Crash Twinsanity The yellow stripes on Nitros Oxide's face are outlined, but since his face is now of a lighter green, they blend in more. Instead of a yellow stripe extending from his ears and passing through his nose, the nose is textured like an elephant trunk. Nitros Oxide has two golden bits on each side of his head again instead of one, and his head is slightly wider. His legs are either more segmented or he's wearing boots. Like all Crash Twinsanity models, he now has five fingers instead of the usual four.

The ornament on his hair is usually blue and purple, but it's yellow in this game instead. The ornament is also yellow on Papu Papu's promotional model in Crash Bandicoot. His skin is also brighter than it was in the previous games.
Papu Papu
Crash Twinsanity Papu Papu's tummy is even larger and rounder than before. His ornaments and loincloth are more detailed, and he has three red stripes on his tummy, as well as some red marks on his arms. His toe nails have become white. This was Papu Papu's most detailed design to date.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Papu Papu
Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy Arguably the most detailed model to date. Papu Papu's tummy isn't as round as it was in Crash Twinsanity, and his skin has gotten much browner like it was in the Naughty Dog games. Papu Papu no longer has the three red stripes on his tummy. Instead, he has brown tattoos in leaf patterns. The red marks on his arms have been replaced with new brown markings. The red patterns on Papu Papu's face have extended to the chin area.
