Effect Explodes upon contact

Nitro Crates are explosive green crates filled with nitroglycerin. Since their first appearance in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, Nitro Crates have appeared in most Crash Bandicoot games. Unlike TNT Crates, Nitro Crates instantly damage Crash upon contact, so he must avoid them entirely. In many of the main series installments, Nitro Crates can only be safely destroyed by activating a Nitro Crate Switch, which blows up every Nitro Crate in the level. In some of the games, Crash dies instantly from touching one, even if he is under Aku Aku's protection.

In Crash Team Racing and Crash Nitro Kart, Nitro Crates are a juiced power-up for TNT Crates, which are upgraded if a racer has ten Wumpa Fruit. Unlike TNT Crates, if a racer drives into a Nitro Crate, it instantly explodes on them, causing the racer to lose three Wumpa Fruit.
