Known as Crash Fusion in Europe.Cortex and Ripto agree to destroy Crash and Spyro together using genetically altered Riptocs to trick them into fighting each other.

This game contains examples of:
- Canon Discontinuity: Possible, since the release of The Legend of Spyro series.
- Crossover: Crash and Spyro, of course!
- One Game for the Price of Two: This game has a counterpart where you play as Spyro himself, called Spyro Orange: The Cortex Conspiracy. If you want to get the full story, you have to get both, though later releases had both in a single cartridge, averting this somewhat.
- Third-Person Person: Nina Cortex.
