Crash Bandicoot's AMAZING Cultural Origins! - Gaijin Goombah

  • With the highly anticipated release of Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy, I've been N Sane-ly curious about the possible cultural origins behind Crash. And even though Crash is a series about anthropomorphic marsupials and egg-headed super geniuses who fight alongside living masks, the true culture behind the game was both simplistic, yet amazing!

    But why does papu papu have a pyramid on ctr? I think it's a mix between Aztec (u can see the sun discs and aztec designs around him) and Polynesian....but the second has more sense

    Papu papu is fat.
    I don't know if it's a problem representing Polynesian people as fat just because they have a problem with that actually being fat and reality. We wouldn't want to misrepresent them.

    Did he say that crashes penis splits into two at the end of it? does crash bandicoot have two penises or two heads to be more precise? That's what I took from this video.
