Awesome / Crash Twinsanity

Go To

  • While Twinsanity is the game that made Cortex into comic relief, what is quite possibly his best moment comes right before the final battle of that game. After being chased and abused by the Evil Twins who used to be his pet parrots, Cortex finally tells them, with no fear in his voice, that playtime is over and to go back into their cage. And it works.
    • ... For a moment, as the cage turned out to be a part of their giant robot. Granted, given the twins themselves were abused pets of Cortex originally, it could be considered equally awesome how quickly they turned the tables when old habits returned.
  • Madame Amberly says Cortex will always be a little worm to her in the cutscene before the boss battle against her. Said "little worm" defeats the Fat Bastard not long after, getting back at her for all the torment and harassment long ago.

  • Meta: The fact that, despite its incompletion, the game's loved and fondly remembered by many fans.
  • The Final Boss Battle against the Evil Twins as Nina, Cortex and Mecha Bandicoot! Too bad there wasn't any phases with Crash nor Crash & Cortex together... Nevertheless, the battle was awesome.
  • The Evil Twins get one for defeating Aku Aku and Uka Uka together. Seemingly without any problems, no less.
  • Spyro's cameo, though short, was pretty cool.
  • Dingodile earns one for his Creepy Awesome boss fight in the Academy of Evil's boiler room. Compared to his usual status as a comically-villainous Butt-Monkey, he comes off as genuinely menacing; with his disturbingly loud grunts and pig-like squeals, relentless and varied barrages of flamethrower attacks, and how he's only illuminated by the harsh red glow of the fires against the darkness of the rest of the arena.
    • One of the biggest factors in the atmosphere is his boss theme, an intense tribal dirge interspersed with war drum-like beat boxing and mournful wailing. Doubly-so considering it was done entirely in acapella — along with the rest of the soundtrack — and it still manages to be surprisingly scary!
  • Cortex has always been the Butt Monkey of the series. The Wumpa Islands are in danger - this is normal, of course, because it's usually Cortex himself putting them in danger. This time, however? Someone who is not him is planning to destroy the islands (and, it's implied, the world) and this is something up with which Cortex will not put - he can't rule the world and enslave everyone if it's already been done! So what does he do? He buckles down, joins forces with his enemy and actually becomes competent! Between them, they win.

How well does it match the trope?
