* AdvancingWallOfDoom: Let's see: a giant, rising drill, pissed-off tribes people, angry rocket-wearing penguins, a walrus chef, ''deadly acid in a library,'' and a ''swinging bus!''
* AndCallHimGeorge: [[AllThereInTheManual As stated in the game's manual,]] Nina loved animals so much that Cortex replaced her hands with [[ArtificialLimbs mechanical ones]] so that she could no longer hug critters without crushing them to death. Fittingly, the grappling targets were originally supposed to be cute little birds and lizards she'd latch onto, painfully squeezing them in the process.

* AscendedExtra: Dingodile, N. Tropy, and N. Gin, at least compared to ''Wrath of Cortex''. After having their roles massively shrunk in their first sixth-gen outing to only appearing in the opening cutscene and as stage hazards, all three are now proper bosses. Dingodile's role is comparable to his debut in ''Warped'', while N. Tropy and N. Gin, while not on the level of their respective debuts as major antagonists, still have their own plotline with Nitrus Brio.

* AbsenteeActor: The Komodo Bros are the only bosses from the Naughty Dog era completely absent. Cortex is one of the main characters, the other doctors and Dingodile have their own plotline, Papu Papu shows up in Totem Hokum, and everyone else, Oxide included, gets a non-speaking cameo at the "birthday party." Among notable non-bosses, Pura and Fake Crash are also absent.

** The Evil Twins.Twins for the main plot, and a slip from Moritz ended up kick-starting the sub-plot.



* TheBusCameBack: With the exception of Cortex, every boss from the first game slowly declined in prominence before vanishing from ''Wrath of Cortex'' onwards. All of them reappear to some extent here:
** Papu Papu, whose last appearance was as the first boss of ''Bash'', is an antagonist in Totem Hokum.
** Ripper Roo makes his sixth-gen debut at the "birthday party" after being in every fifth-gen game save for ''Warped''.
** Koala Kong only appeared in the original and ''Bash'', but attends the party.
** Pintripe Potoroo, fourth boss of the original and ''Crash Team Racing'', is another guest.
** Nitrus Brio, who, besides ''Bash'', vanished from the games after the second one, is one of the treasure hunters and assists Nefarious Tropy in a boss fight.



** Various villains ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg also Crunch and Polar]]) turn up at Crash's "birthday party". Tawna also appears on a sign for the Moulin Cortex.

* BottomlessPit: Averted in Jungle Rumble, where the pits clearly have a bottom, it just happens to be covered with spikes. Played straight in basically every other stage, though.

** The last part of the FinalBoss: The boss itself is protected by a circular force field. [[VideoGame/MetroidPrime The only way to damage it is by shooting missiles in between the gaps...]]

* TheStarscream: Almost ''every'' prominant ally of Cortex turns on him after hearing of the Twins' supposed treasure. Dingodile even directly attacks the doctor at one point.

Later, Crash and Cortex end up meeting the [[IncomingHam Evil Twins]] - strange, bird-like creatures from the Tenth Dimension who've come to get some sort of strange revenge on Cortex, take over the dimension, and make everyone their slaves. This forces Crash and Cortex to set aside their differences, and form a very [[EnemyMine uneasy alliance]] against them, [[HilarityEnsues and make their way to the Tenth Dimension to stop their evil plans.]]

* BeeAfraid: Totem Hokum. All sympathy for Cortex in this level is completely non-existent -- by the first checkpoint the bees chasing him give him [[AmusingInjuries visible blisters]], a beehive gets dropped on him, and that eventually lures a [[BearsAreBadNews hungry bear]] into the chase!

* BodySled: The Humiliskate minigames of [[SlippySlideyIceWorld Slip Slide Icecapades]] and [[DeathMountain Rockslide Rumble]]. In it Crash slides on N. Cortex after Crash may or may not have pushed him down a hazardous course. In Rockslide Rumble, [[EvilTwin Evil]] Crash slides on Cortex's "daught... [[LastSecondWordSwap err]]... [[ChasteToons NIECE]]", though judging by the level's picture it doesn't seem she minds.

* DemotedToExtra: Many of the villains/bosses from prior games make an appearance early on. Out of them, only Dingodile and N. Gin show up as bosses. After his first few lines of dialogue, Aku-Aku is demoted until the Uka-Uka boss, after which they appear together in two more cutscenes, and from then on are only found in crates and say nothing. Coco, who was playable and a pivotal character in the previous game, makes cameos at the beginning, midway through the game, and at the very end, although she was originally [[WhatCouldHaveBeen going to be playable.]]

* DroughtLevelOfDoom: High Seas Hi-Jinx starts fairly basic, but it goes through two rather long areas, then a boss fight against N-Gin, then a ChaseScene with Rusty Walrus, and finally a DualBoss against N-Tropy and N-Brio, all with no save points in-between.
