Tawna Bandicoot - Crash Bandicoot's Own Dasmel In Distress

Post by Polar on Sun Sep 16, 2012 9:09 am

I posted this on MPL so why not post it here?

I have been playing the original Crash Bandicoot alot lately, and I felt like doing a little thing about Tawna Bandicoot.

Tawna Bandicoot - Crash Bandicoot's Own Dasmel In Distress

Crash Bandicoot was released in 1996 for Sony's Playstation 1. The Story for the original Crash was that the evil scientist Dr. Neo Cortex is taking animals from their habitats to create an army of super animals to help take over the world. With the help of an old time friend, Dr. Nitrus Brio who created the Evolvo ray, a machine that is capable of giving animals human qualites. After the animal is envolved he/she will be placed uner the Cortex Vortex, a mind controlling device that can control the animal. With everything ready. The mad scientists place an Eastern-Barred Bandicoot under the evolovo ray, the evolution works perfectly, with only one more step they place the bandicoot under the Cortex Vortex, Dr. Brio has he doubts but Dr. Cortex proceds anyway. The Cortex Vortex rejects the bandicoot, for his kind behaviour. The bandicoot who we know as Crash, manages to meet another bandicoot, named Tawna. Unfortenaly Cortex chases crash who manges to jump out of a window, Crash slowly drifts out to sea...


Tawna the Bandicoot. Unlike Crash she was unable to escape and is going to be placed under the Cortex Vortex. Only Crash can save her!

We don't see too much of the female bandicoot, Tawna will appear in bonus stages but that's pretty much it. Crash manages to get to Cortex's Castle and saves Tawna before she can be placed under the Cortex Vortex.


She is saved! After all of Crash's hardwork, Tawna will probaly reward Crash with a little something...

Suprisingly Tawna did not appear in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back. She was replaced by Coco Bandicoot. Naughty Dog later said Tawna was removed for being too inappopraite for kids, as Crash Bandicoot was aimed towards familys. Fans of Tawna either 1) Stopped worrying or caring about her or 2) Didn't believe this and still expected Tawna in the later Crash games. Jason Rubin who had worked on the original Crash Bandicoot gave the REAL reason why she was removed. Appartenly the makerting director of Universal Intecractive Studios was a very small minded woman. She saw the original design of Tawna and insited that the drawing of her should not be in the final game.


The original design of Tawna Bandicoot.

The makerting director was not impressed. She called Jason into the office and yelled at him impyling that Women should not be shown in that manor and that no women would ever wear clothing like that. They had drawn her clothing based off one of the other female employees who worked there and when she walked by the office, the makerting director called her in and yelled at them for half an hour. She insisted that no video game would become famous for having a sexy women in it. She managed to make the president of Universal Interactive Studios so nervous that he asked them to redesign Tawna to the makerting director's image. Tawna was heavily toned down to wear simple clothing. They thought the new design was not what they wanted and scraped Tawna from any Crash game. Also, Tomb Raider was realesed later and appartenly the makerting director left video games forever.


In game model of Tawna.

Even though she was scrapped, Tawna would still appear as cameos in some Crash games. She appears in a poster in Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped! and Crash Bandicoot: The Warth of Cortex and Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Muntant, She also appeared on a sign saying Moulin Cortex in Crash Twinsainity.
Tawna even appeared as a playable character in Crash Boom Bang! A party game that was created by a Japanense team.


Her cameo in Crash Twinsanity!

So while she was scrapped and replaced by Coco Bandicoot. Tawna Bandicoot is one of my favorite Crash characters out there! I hope you enjoyed reading this article as much as I enjoyed typing it!

That was a good article and it is a let down when a charcter is replaced for a newer one.
