I've never liked the eels, but common sense would say that the only thing to do when encountering an electric eel is to avoid it. Ever since I first played the game I always thought the eels were invincible, and while reading from Bandipedia (Fandom) on the electric eel page, it seemed clear that the Behavior section confirmed by belief:
They can't be defeated or interacted with at all.
However, as I continued reading I found that the same creature in one specific game (Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure) apparently could be killed:
They can be defeated when no electrical charge goes though their bodies.
Given that electric eels could be killed in the other game, I'm wondering if perhaps there is some way to kill the electric eels in Crash 2.
