Man-eating Plant


Even the vegetation is more than a little wild in Crash's archipelago, as large, sentient man-eating plants are a common sight. Being rooted to the ground, they wait for unsuspecting passersby to get close before suddenly lunging at them, swallowing them whole.

Some of these plants are red, while others are dark purple with white spots. One subspecies seems particularly cowardly, preferring to keep threats at bay by spitting out toxic seeds and relying on its prickly vines for defense as a last resort measure. Another subspecies dwells on the surface of river water, camouflaging itself as a harmless flower and snapping shut periodically or as soon as prey steps on it.


  • As with many fictional man-eating plants, these bear a striking similarity to Audrey II from the movie Little Shop of Horrors.
  • One of these plants can be seen in Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Naughty Dog's first game after Crash Team Racing. It's located in Samos's hut, and it even uses the same model as in Crash Bandicoot 2, albeit with a greener hue.
