- Gender: Male
- Alignment: Good
Pura is Coco's pet tiger. He let her ride him across the Great Wall of China during Uka Uka's attempt to gather crystals from different time periods. Despite being only a cub, Pura runs very fast and has amazing stamina. He purrs, meows, and loves being petted by his owner, much like a domestic cat. He also gets along fine with Polar and Baby-T, Crash's animal companions.
In Crash: Boom, Bang!, Pura is anthropomorphic, wears pants, and is able to talk.
- Pura was set to make an appearance in Crash of the Titans. The original draft was centered around the idea of Crash having to rescue him and Baby-T.
- In Crash Team Racing, Pura was originally intended to share a kart with Polar. Due to technical limitations, they were each put in his own kart.
