Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex (also known as Crash Bandicoot 4) is a platform game, the sixth in the Crash Bandicoot series and was developed by Traveller's Tales and published by Vivendi Universal Interactive Publishing and Konami for PS2, Xbox and GameCube in 2001. The story centers on the appearance of Crunch Bandicoot, a genetically advanced bandicoot working for his creator Cortex, who is aided by a group of destructive masks known as the Elementals who are wreaking havoc on Earth, as Crash and Coco attempt to stop them.

Coco Bandicoot[edit]

  • What's going on? Oh, no! Crash, look out!
  • It's almost finished. A few little adjustments here and there and it'll be ready to go.
  • Hey, any of you guys need a ride?
  • You're welcome, Crunch. Hey, do you think that's the last we'll see of Dr. Cortex and Uka Uka?

Aku Aku[edit]

  • Crash, Coco, it is just as I feared. Uka Uka and Dr. Cortex have freed a group of destructive masks known as the Elementals. We must find a way to stop them before they destroy the Earth and all of its inhabitants. The only way to stop the Elementals destructive nature is to imprison them with the use of ancient Crystals. Each Elemental can be returned back to their hibernation state with a total of 5 Crystals. We must act quickly. Coco, what is the status of the new portal chamber you've been working on?
  • Well done, Coco! This gives us the ideal opportunity to test it. We must hurry!

Crunch Bandicoot[edit]

  • Finally. I get to wrap my fingers around your puny, orange neck.
  • [after being released from Cortex's mind control] That annoying scientist doesn't have control of me anymore! Where is that pathetic twerp?

Neo Cortex[edit]

  • Can't you ever let me win? What do you want from me, you cretin? [hits lever]

Uku Uka[edit]

  • Imbeciles, fools, nincompoops! Can't you idiots do anything right?! According to this, your track record for spreading evil is pathetic!
  • Enough excuses! You five idiots need to come up with one good plan... or else!

Dialogue[edit]

[The game opens in a space station where Uka-Uka is holding a convention of villains]
Uka-Uka: Imbeciles, fools, nincompoops! Can't you idiots do anything right?! According to this, [shows a chart with a line going down] your track record for spreading evil is pathetic!
Cortex: Uka-Uka, it's not our fault. That wretched Bandicoot is to blame!
Uka-Uka: [growls] I will not let anything stand in the way of evil, especially not a brainless orange marsupial. Crash must be eliminated!
N. Gin: Uh, Uka-Uka? Need I remind you that Crash always finds a way to defeat us? Maybe he's just too good for us.
Uka-Uka: Enough excuses! You five idiots need to come up with one good plan, or else.
Cortex: How do I get into these situations? Ugh.
N. Tropy: There must be something we can come up with. [to Cortex] Say, Doctor, haven't you been tinkering with some sort of super weapon in your laboratory?
Cortex: I don't know what you're talking about, N. Tropy.
N. Gin: Dr. Cortex, I think he's referring to the super secret weapon that you've been laboring over day and night since the last time Crash defeated you.
Uka-Uka: Enough bickering! Do we have a plan?!
Cortex: Well, in my scientific endeavors, I've been able to create a genetically advanced super-weapon of unbelievable strength, but the power source... is the final missing crucial element.
Uka-Uka: Hmm. Element...? Element...? Yes, the Elementals!
Cortex: Right. The Elementals, that's it! If released, their destructive energy could create enough power to bring my secret weapon to life. We'd have a weapon capable of crushing mountains, demolishing entire cities!
Uka-Uka: And wiping Crash Bandicoot off the face of the Earth forever!
Cortex: Get ready to face my wrath, Crash Bandicoot! [evil laugh]

Coco Bandicoot: [Crash is water-skiing] Go, Crash! Yeah! Crash, you're getting great!
Aku-Aku: [relaxes on a chair, then hears a volcanic eruption] What's happening? [sees an erupting volcano] No! It cannot be! [sees a growing thundercloud] Oh, no!
Coco: [sees thundercloud] [shocked gasp] What's going on? [notices a large tidal wave] Oh, no! Crash, look out!
[giant tidal wave splashes beach, soaking everyone.]
Aku-Aku: Is everyone all right? It appears that my evil twin brother, Uka-Uka, is up to his no-good tricks again. I must find out what he is planning. I will meet up with you later.

Uka-Uka: Ah, hello, my feeble brother.
Aku-Aku: You have gotten my attention, Uka-Uka. What kind of diabolical scheme do you and Dr. Cortex have planned this time?
Uka-Uka: No schemes; Just some old familiar faces dropping by for a visit. [the Elementals appear; Uka Uka laughs evilly]
Aku-Aku: [alarmed] No! Not the Elementals! Uka-Uka, why did you release them? Don't you remember what happened the last time they were free?
Uka-Uka: So they were responsible for a few earthquakes, floods and that little Ice Age a couple of centuries back. You worry too much, brother.
Aku-Aku: You cannot restrain them, Uka-Uka. They are far too dangerous! This could spell disaster for us all!
Py-Ro: [chortles] On the contrary, Aku-Aku. It spells disaster for you and that precious planet you care so much about. DESTROY HIM!
[the Elementals narrowly miss Aku Aku]
Aku-Aku: You won't get away with this!
Uka Uka: [chortles] Who's going to stop us?

Aku-Aku: Crash, Coco, it is just as I feared. Uka-Uka and Dr. Cortex have freed a group of destructive masks, known as the Elementals. We must find a way to stop them before they destroy the Earth, and all of its inhabitants. The only way to stop the Elementals' destructive nature is to imprison them with the use of ancient Crystals. Each Elemental can be returned back to their hibernation state with a total of 5 Crystals. We must act quickly. Coco, what is the status of the new portal chamber you've been working on?
Coco: It's almost finished. A few little adjustments here and there and it'll be ready to go.
Aku-Aku: Well done, Coco. This gives us the ideal opportunity to test it. We must hurry.
[Coco opens the pod bay doors of their garage, revealing a collection of machines. Crash and Aku-Aku look on with amazement on their faces. Coco types on a nearby keyboard, activating a couple of the machines in the room]
Coco: Okay. All systems are ready and operational.
Aku-Aku: It's time we evened up the odds in our favor. [Crash points to himself questioningly, as Aku-Aku smiles]

Cortex: Crash Bandicoot, my old nemesis. How the heck are you? Still gathering crystals? Old habits die hard, don't they? My days are being spent on something much more intriguing. Meet Crunch, my newest creation.
Crunch: This is the creature who keeps sabotaging your master plan? HA! You gotta be kidding. I'll exterminate this field rat in no time!
Cortex: Now, Crunch, your time with Crash will come soon enough. Isn't he brilliant? A testament to my true scientific genius; a real Bandicoot warrior, unlike you, Crash. Oh, well, we all make mistakes. Ta-ta for now.

[after entering the 1st regular level to play]
Rok-Ko: What are you looking at, fuzzhead? I'm Rok-Ko, the Earth Elemental. Uka Uka and Dr. Cortex woke me from my captive slumber, and now, I'm free to pulverize whatever gets in my way. Oh, don't even think about getting those Crystals, runt. 'Cause if you do, I'm gonna bury you alive.

[at the beginning of the 2nd regular level of play]
Coco: [through radio] Crash, the generators; shoot them down! It looks like Neo's using them to make his tornadoes!

[after entering the 3rd regular level to play]
Rok-Ko: You want a piece of me, Bandicoot? Huh? Huh? Do ya? Huh? Wuss.

[after entering the 5th regular level to play]
Rok-Ko: Oh, I am gonna shake, rattle and roll your Bandicoot butt!

[before Rok-Ko boss fight]
Rok-Ko: Well, well, looks like the Bandicoot's been busy collecting Crystals. I warned you, Bandicoot.
Crunch: Finally. I get to wrap my fingers around your puny, orange neck.

[after Rok-Ko boss fight]
Uka-Uka: CORTEX! When are you and that super-weapon of yours going to put an end to that interfering Bandicoot?! You're beginning to test my patience!
Cortex: Uh, uh, I'm working on it, Uka-Uka. Listen, Crash, you may have outsmarted Rok-Ko, but there are three more Elemental masks where he came from. And just as luck would have it, they are all significantly more powerful. HA! I have no doubt that the Water Elemental, Wa-Wa, will make sure you never see the light of day.
Crunch: Yeah. The water boy and I are gonna take you out! Ooh, I'm gonna rip you limb from limb.

[after entering the 6th regular level to play]
Wa-Wa: Crash Bandicoot, you've got some nerve setting foot into my domain without an invitation! Don't talk back to me! I'LL FIX THAT ATTITUDE PROBLEM OF YOURS!

[after entering the 8th regular level to play]
Wa-Wa: Leave my levels alone!

[after entering the 10th regular level to play]
Wa-Wa: They're gonna have to hang you out to dry when I get through with you!

[before Wa-Wa boss fight]
Wa-Wa: AAAAAH! Get over here, you little ORANGE SPONGE!
Crunch: 'Cause we're gonna wring you out!

[after Wa-Wa boss fight]
Cortex: You are making a mockery of me in front of my minions! Not only have you defeated the Elemental masks, but you are still collecting those worthless crystals! Well, you've gotten this far, and this is as far as you're gonna get. Py-Ro, the Fire Elemental, will see to that.
Crunch: Oh, Cortex, come on! I don't need some flaming mask to help me! I can take on Crash by myself!
Cortex: Crunch, you will do as (Uka-Uka and) I say! You and Py-Ro will vanquish Crash, and his annoying friends.

[after entering the 11th regular level to play]
Py-Ro: I realize my brethren have had some trouble with you, my little orange friend, but I'm not quite sure why. Huh. Is it getting hot in here? Is it safe to be wearing that fur?! It looks FLAMMABLE!

[after entering the 13th regular level to play]
Py-Ro: Hmm, I have a taste for some deep-fried Bandicoot.

[after entering the 15th regular level to play]
Py-Ro: Hope you brought your sunscreen, 'cause you're gonna burn!

[before Py-Ro boss fight]
Py-Ro: Ah, the triumphant hero, Crash, reduced to a pile of smoldering ash.
Crunch: Let's finish this.

[after Py-Ro boss fight]
Uka-Uka: CORTEX! Why is that mindless marsupial still collecting those crystals?! He's defeated Rok-Ko and Wa-Wa( and Py-Ro)! I'm beginning to question the value of your super-weapon!
Crunch: I don't need another mask's help; I can take this Crash punk out with my metal arm tied behind my b-- [chokes]
Cortex: Oh, Crunch, stop being silly. (Don't worry, )Uka, he will use (Lo-Lo, the Air Elemental, the last of) the Elemental masks. No need for you to lose any beauty sleep.

[after entering the 16th regular level to play]
Lo-Lo: The Crash Bandicoot, eh? Oh, I've heard so much about you, and this is the hero I have to blow away? Heh! Seems like a bunch of hot air to me!

[after entering the 18th regular level to play]
Lo-Lo: Is there a draft in here?

[at the beginning of the 18th regular level]
Aku-Aku: [through ship radio] Coco, Cortex has assembled an armada of space stations that are ready to strike the planet. Use the lasers on your ship to destroy them.

[after entering the 20th regular level to play]
Lo-Lo: Not used to the weather around here, are you, wimp?

[before Lo-Lo boss fight]
Lo-Lo: Hey, look! The orange boy likes to fly!
Crunch: Time to earn your wings, kid.

[after Lo-Lo boss fight and entering the 21st regular level to play]
Cortex: Well, here we are again. I wouldn't necessarily call this irony, but don't you think it's a little odd how we keep meeting under these same world domination circumstances? Why not just give up, and let me win for once?!
Crunch: Don't worry, Dr. Cortex. Now that my Elemental powers have reached maximum capacity, this little geek is gonna wish he was never created.

[after entering the 23rd regular level to play]
Cortex: Bring it, you brain-dead Bandicoot.

[after entering the 25th regular level to play]
Cortex: Crash, you've been a naughty boy, but now that's going to end.

[after collecting all the crystals, and before the Cortex and Crunch battle]
Dr. Cortex: Congratulations, Crash. You should be proud of yourself. Not only have you collected all the crystals in record time, but you've also defeated the Elementals. Let Crunch and me be the first ones to congratulate you.
Crunch: By pummeling your sad Bandicoot frame to a pulp. Come and get it.

[after the first battle with Crunch; before the 106% ending]
Cortex: Can't you ever let me win? What do you want from me, you cretin?! [hits lever]
Uka-Uka: Cortex! You realize that Crash may have collected all the Crystals, but (fortunately,) he doesn't have all the Gems. With the Gems, we can resurrect the masks one last time, and destroy that Bandicoot once and for all.

[last lines; 106% ending after the second battle with Crunch]
Cortex: Can't you ever let me win? What do you want from me, you cretin?! [hits lever again] No, Uka-Uka! I can explain!
Uka-Uka: It's too late for that now! [shoots energy bolt at Cortex, who ducks]
[explosion]
Cortex: Uh, I don't think you should have done that.
Crunch: [regains consciousness] Oh, no. Where am I? Hey, wait a second. That annoying scientist doesn't have control of me anymore. Where is that pathetic twerp?
Aku-Aku: There's no time for that now, Crunch.
Lab Assistant: Danger! Critical power overload in evil space station! Run for your lives! [alarmed by this, Crash and Crunch run out]
Cortex: (Uka-Uka,) I think your energy volt caused a slight chain reaction. It might be wise if we made our way to the escape pods. (Plus, this wouldn't have happened if you hadn't shot me!)
Uka-Uka: (What?!) This is all your fault! If you hadn't ducked out of the way, none of this would've happened! (And how is that my fault?!)
Crunch: This doesn't look good!
Coco: [appears in a spaceship] Hey, any of you guys need a ride? [Crash and Crunch nod]
[Crash and Crunch enter Coco's ship, and they blast off to Earth]
Crunch: Crash, Coco, Aku-Aku. I'm grateful to all of you. If it weren't for you, I'd still be under the control of Dr. Cortex. Thank you for believing in me, guys.
Coco: You're welcome, Crunch. (Welcome to the Bandicoot family.) [to Aku-Aku] Hey, do you think that's the last we'll see of Dr. Cortex and Uka-Uka?
Aku-Aku: I'd like to believe that, my children, but somehow, I doubt that very much.
[Meanwhile, in the Antarctic wastes]
Uka-Uka: IDIOT! FOOL! NINCOMPOOP! YOU'VE LANDED US IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE!
Cortex: [getting zapped in the butt with energy bolts] OUCH! WHOA-HO-HO! No, wait! I can explain! [gets zapped by energy bolt] AAH! I'll get my revenge, Crash Bandicoot! JUST YOU WAIT!
