Artwork of a regular Crate from Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy.

Crates, also known as Basic Crates[1] and Basic Wooden Crates,[2] are objects featured in every Crash Bandicoot game, starting with the first game, Crash Bandicoot. Crates are breakable objects featured in every level, and breaking a Crate releases one or a few Wumpa Fruits. There are many different types of Crates, and Crash is required to break every one to receive either a Clear Gem or a Colored Gem, depending on the game. They are also named Boxes, and both names are used interchangeably throughout their appearances.

In Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage, there is a blue trading card of regular created named Wood Crate.
