The explosive crate[1] is a variant of containers that first appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). When destroyed, it releases a powerful explosion.

Description

The explosive crate has the same dimensions as the regular wooden container, except they possess a red coloration. When destroying an explosive crate in gameplay, it releases a small explosion that deals damage to surrounding enemies. However, the player is unaffected by the explosion. The explosive crate is very fragile though as it detonates if hit by anything.

The Explosive crate in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006).

In Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), the explosive crate is made of red and black metal with frames and is emblazoned with a white and red flame-symbol. They can be found everywhere in the game, and are arguably the second-most common form of container. When destroyed, they deal one hit worth of damage to all enemies in the near vicinity. Additionally, they are useful for gaining extra points; if the player detonates the crate inside a cluster of enemies and it takes all the enemies out, the player will earn bonus points.

In Sonic's version of Radical Train, Sonic must rescue a train before it crashes into a bomb consisting of a pile of explosive crates that blocks the train track. The player needs to activate a Switch to destroy them as they are blocked from the player's hand by a Laser Field Block.

The explosive crate in Sonic Unleashed.

In the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 version of Sonic Unleashed, the explosive crates look much like wooden containers, except they have a red burst-like symbol on their surface. They appear only in a few of the game's nighttime Action Stages. In addition to detonating it by attacking, the player can grab it by pressing XboxB/PSObutton and then throw it at enemy who has a reticle over it.

The explosive crate is an specially effective weapon against Big Mothers. By throwing the explosive crate into a Big Mother's open mouth, the beast will swallow the crate as it explodes, causing its body to comically expand and deal it damage while stunning it.
