** Granted the description he gives is very accurate. The gathering and celebration are very much styled after a party, just celebrating the exact opposite of Crash's birth.

* ''[[VideoGame/CrashBandicootNSaneTrilogy Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy]]'' (2017) -- A collection of the original PS1 games remade from the ground up with PS4 graphics by Vicarious Visions. Historically, Vicarious Visions' Crash games have always been the most faithful to Naughty Dog's, so they're a great fit (Incidentally, they were also in charge of making sure Crash's appearance in ''Skylanders'' was faithful to his roots).

** The original: Cortex or Uka Uka
** ''Cortex Strikes Back'': Throughout the game, Cortex and Brio accuse each other of being the true villain. [[spoiler: It's Cortex]], though once again, maybe Uka Uka.
** ''Warped'': Firmly Uka Uka here.

After six years with no sign of life from the franchise and just in time for [[MilestoneCelebration his 20th year of existence]], Crash made his triumphant return to console gaming in 2016 by making a playable appearance in a [[ShowWithinAShow game-within-a-game]] in ''VideoGame/Uncharted4AThiefsEnd'', another game made by Naughty Dog. Shortly afterwards, it was announced that the original three Naughty Dog games will be receiving HD remakes for the UsefulNotes/{{PlayStation 4}} developed by Vicarious Visions.

Visions (the GBA games and Nitro Kart's developer) titled the ''[=N-Sane Trilogy=]''.

* SpiritualAntithesis:
** The [[VideoGame/CrashBandicoot1996 original game]] is this to ''VideoGame/SuperMario64''. Whereas the latter pioneered the capabilities of the N64 and made open environments out of its levels, the former pushed the boundaries of what the PSX was able to do, and opted for [[SlidingScaleOfLinearityVsOpenness more linear level designs]]. The results are {{Killer App}}s that showcase the strengths and limitations of their respective consoles, with a [[TechnicianVsPerformer distinct approach in development]] to each one.
** The series is also an antithetical sister series to ''Franchise/SpyroTheDragon'', also because of the SlidingScaleOfLinearityVsOpenness. In fact, the latter could be considered a true PSX counterpart to ''VideoGame/SuperMario64''.

* VillainDecay:
** Dr. Neo Cortex in today's games is nowhere near as malicious and sinister as his Naughty Dog depictions were. He and most of the other Doctors (notably N.Gin) are also a ''lot'' less intelligent and a lot more comical for a bunch of [[MadScientist mad scientists]] now.
*** Played with in ''Mind Over Mutant''. He's just as campy and deranged as ever, if not ''more so'', but in terms of role, he takes revenge on his trecherous niece, overthrows and humilates his abusive boss and pulls an effective NotSoHarmlessVillain moment one on one fight with Crash, not to mention, lack of pants aside, makes a clean escape, avoiding his usual end of game HumiliationConga.
** Reversed for Nina who went from an adolescent assistant of Cortex in her first appearances to a devious usurper as Uka Uka's [[TheDragon Dragon]] and the final boss in ''Titans''. She ended up dealt with accordingly at the start of ''Mind Over Mutant'' however, reducing her to a minor role.
** Uka-Uka went from being a ManipulativeBastard to being a PointyHairedBoss between ''Warped'' and ''Wrath of Cortex''. He regained some credibility in ''Titans'', only to fall victim to a humiliating overthrow from Cortex in ''Mind Over Mutant''.
** Played with for N. Tropy who constantly switched from being a time-pun spewing minor nuisance to a more sinister potential replacement for Cortex DependingOnTheWriter. His final appearance in ''Twinsanity'' seemed to play the middle ground.

And that means that once a redesigned Spyro appeared in the new, wildly successful ''VideoGame/{{Skylanders}}'' franchise, it was only a matter of time before Crash followed suit. In ''Skylanders Imaginators'', Crash and Cortex each have their own playable toys that unlock an extra Crash-themed level, and thanks to the toys' forward compatibility, they should remain playable in all future Skylanders games. Furthermore, Crash makes his WesternAnimation debut in the ''Skylanders Academy'' Netflix show, SuddenlyVoiced and with strong hints that Crash will be receiving his own animated series soon.
