Crash Team Rumble: Best Character Abilities



The beloved marsupial hero, Crash Bandicoot, has returned in a new chapter developed by Toys For Bob and Activision. Crash Team Rumble offers a unique experience, unlike the previous titles in the franchise, where players engage in online 4v4 arena battles to be the first to fill their Wumpa bank. Each character in the game possesses a unique skill set that gives them unorthodox advantages over their opponents. Success in the game depends on careful consideration of the character’s abilities, ensuring they fit the playing style.

Coco Bandicoot, the brains of the Bandicoot family, possesses the Quantum Wall ability that allows her to conjure a temporary obstacle to separate herself from the opposition, buying precious time to make an escape or capitalize on the opportunity to bank her Wumpa stash. Catbat, the first non-binary character in the franchise, has the Heal Burger ability that allows them to whip up a tasty sandwich to recover lost health for themselves or teammates in need. Tawna is a deceptively agile character with the Hookshot Dash ability that allows her to swiftly cover a significant amount of ground, establishing a speed advantage over the opposition. N. Brio’s Transform ability allows him to change his small stature into a Hulk-like physique, charging ahead and beating his large fists into the ground and onto any unfortunate opponents in his way. N. Tropy’s Time Tether ability shoots a long bar-like projectile toward her opponents that trips them up and causes them to lose some health and precious Wumpa, while the Slime Monster ability conjures a large and aggressive green slug that attacks any nearby threats and causes damage to them.

Dr. Neo Cortex’s Transform Shot ability temporarily renders opponents vulnerable and defenseless, delivering further damage by using his Piano Drop or escaping from any threat and taking his Wumpa supplies to the bank. Crash Bandicoot’s Superslam ability is among the best character skills in the game, seeing the bandicoot leap into the air and perform a devastating belly-flop onto the ground, flattening opponents temporarily and rendering them defenseless. Dingodile’s Super Tailwhip ability turns him into a terrifying tornado, charging up his spin move to continuously pirouette in the direction of any enemies in the way, making him near-unstoppable for a short period.

In conclusion, Crash Team Rumble offers a fresh take on the beloved franchise, with unique abilities for each character that add a new level of strategy to the game. Careful consideration of each character’s skill set is essential to success in the game.

Everyone’s favorite marsupial hero is back with a new chapter of the legendary Crash Bandicoot series, which has been gracing consoles for over two decades. In the latest collaboration by developer Toys For Bob with Activision, the beloved characters from the franchise are thrown into a whole new experience in Crash Team Rumble.

Unlike previous titles in the franchise, Crash Team Rumble bypasses the typical storyline structure, instead opting for an online 4v4 arena battle where players square off against one another to be the first to fill their Wumpa bank. Each of the game’s characters has a unique skill set, giving them unorthodox advantages over their opponent. Character abilities are a fundamental part of success in the game, so careful consideration is advised to ensure the character fits the playing style.

10 Quantum Wall – Coco

The brains of the Bandicoot family is unsurprisingly the most technically savvy in the arena, evident in Coco Bandicoot’s Quantum Wall ability. Her high-tech ability supports the intelligent persona and appearance of Coco, especially when considering she could not be without her tablet, even in a high-stakes battle for Wumpa supremacy.

Coco’s Quantum Wall ability allows her to conjure a temporary obstacle to separate herself from the opposition and buy precious time to make an escape or capitalize on the opportunity to bank her Wumpa stash. It is particularly useful when Coco is being pursued by opposing Blockers, or when she is on the cusp of being interrupted while attempting to bank the precious fruits for the win.

9 Heal Burger – Catbat

Anyone that says burgers aren’t healthy needs to speak with Catbat. The first non-binary character in the Crash Bandicoot franchise has the ability to whip up a tasty sandwich in a heartbeat to recover some health for themselves or to pass along to teammates in need.

The Heal Burger ability allows Catbat to toss a burger in front of them to recover any lost health, or for another member of the team to do the same. This is a great ability when Catbat is on the move or under attack from an opposing player, as a close-quarter exchange may have a different outcome after Catbat recovers from some of the damage delivered.

8 Hookshot Dash – Tawna

Despite her size, Tawna is a deceptively agile character, making her an ideal Scorer in Crash Team Rumble. Part of what makes her so speedy is her Hookshot Dash ability, which allows her to swiftly cover a significant amount of ground.

The Hookshot Dash ability allows Tawna to throw her hook ahead of her and pull herself toward it, which is great for establishing a speed advantage over the opposition. This ability can be used in both an offensive and defensive manner, as it allows Tawna to escape the grasp of enemies or narrow the gap between Tawna and her target.

7 Transform – N. Brio

N. Brio is the character with the most to gain from the abilities he uses in Crash Team Rumble. On the surface, Brio lacks any physical prowess or skills that would make him a threat by any stretch of the imagination. However, once he gulps down the suspiciously-colored contents of his flask, it is an entirely different story.

N. Brio’s Transform ability allows him to change his small stature into a Hulk-like physique in a true modern-day Jekyll and Hyde conversion. For a short period of time, Brio’s hulking mass charges ahead, beating his large fists into the ground and onto any unfortunate opponents that happen to be in the way. This is a particularly potent attack, however, it does not rank as high as it may deserve because of how vulnerable he is without it.

6 Time Tethers – N. Tropy

There are some questions as to why the female N. Tropy, who was first introduced in Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Timeis featured in the game instead of her longer-tenured male equivalent, however, there is no question that she is a powerful character in Crash Team Rumble. An agile but strong Blocker, Tropy comes with a few effective skills for knocking out opponents and denying their Wumpa banks. One of them is the Time Tether.

The Time Tether ability allows Tropy to shoot a long bar-like projectile toward her opponents that will trip them up and cause them to lose some health and precious Wumpa. As an added bonus, victims will also be knocked backward, which can put them in a sticky situation if they are close to an edge on the field.

5 Slime Monster – N. Brio

When not in his hulking green Transform physique, players will find N. Brio zipping about the field with two flasks in his hands. He can use these to clobber his opponents, but can also use the serum contained in them to create some temporary allies to help fight his battles.

With the Slime Monster ability, Brio can conjure a large and aggressive green slug that will attack any nearby threats and cause damage to them. These monsters make up for the lack of offensive prowess Brio has, and can temporarily distract opponents from the scientist as he makes his getaway or transforms into a formidable creature to turn the tide in his favor.

4 Gravity Slam – N. Tropy

The menacing master of time performs all of her movements with purpose and grace and commits to a very calculated form of combat. This is evident in her Gravity Slam ability, where the Master of Time gracefully floats in the air before slamming into the ground, forming a number of energy orbs that can damage any who come in contact with them.

The Gravity Slam ability will cause damage to any targets it hits, but will also slow them down. This is a useful skill to have, as Tropy is able to capitalize on the opportunity to launch a further assault with her Time Tethers or swift melee strikes to deliver a knockout blow.

3 Transform Shot – Cortex

No matter the size of the target, Dr. Neo Cortex’s Ray Gun has the capacity to make anyone feel and look very small. With his Transform Shot ability, Cortex shoots a ball of energy to turn its victim into a small and defenseless animal. It is as effective on small characters as it is on large, as evident in the above image of the hog formerly known as Dingodile.

Cortex’s Transform Shot will temporarily render opponents vulnerable and defenseless, which is a great opportunity to deliver further damage by using his Piano Drop or to escape from any threat and take his Wumpa supplies to the bank. As an added bonus, players who use Cortex’s Dash ability on a transformed opponent can deliver a big knock-back blow, which could result in an instant knockout.

2 Superslam – Crash

Crash Bandicoot’s Superslam ability is ranked among the best character skills in Crash Team Rumble on account of its effectiveness, but also its nostalgia value. One of Crash’s signature moves throughout the franchise sees the bandicoot leap into the air and perform a devastating belly-flop onto the ground.

Any unfortunate enough to be underneath the Superslam will find themselves literally flattened temporarily, rendering them defenseless. This ability is an excellent tool for slowing down opponents and will grant him an opportunity for Crash to deliver further offense with his signature spin move.

1 Super Tailwhip – Dingodile

Dingodile has always been an unusual creation, given he is a genetic combination of a dingo and a crocodile, but with his Super Tailwhip ability, he is also capable of turning himself into a terrifying tornado. With this ability, Dingodile charges up his spin move to continuously pirouette in the direction of any enemies in the way.

The Super Tailwhip makes Dingodile near-unstoppable for a short period and is a particularly useful skill for the Blocker when one or more opponents are attempting to bank their Wumpa. With a well-timed move, Dingodile can deny multiple opponents the opportunity to contribute to their team’s total, and risk being knocked out in the process.

Crash Team Rumble is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One.
