Ami, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled

Ami is a female Bandicoot that appears in Crash Team Racing and its remake, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. She is named after Ami Matsumura-Blair, who was the marketing manager for Sony Computer Entertainment America at the time. The other trophy girls were also named after the people that were involved in the Naughty Dog games.

Physical Appearance

Ami has short, wavy bright green hair and tail and green eyes. Her attire consists of a yellow and green minidress/tankini and sneakers. She is often seen carrying a large yellow and green-striped umbrella.

In CTR Nitro-Fueled, Ami was the Nitro Squad member with the most alterations to her design. Her eyes are considerably smaller, her hair is now styled into a bob cut and she now has lipstick and yellow eyeshadow. Her minidress now has a yellow checkerboard pattern on her hips and like Liz, she now wears dark green leggings with yellow stripes.

Personality

Although little of her character is explored, Ami is by far the most aggressive member of the Nitro Squad. She is very physically active, constantly flexing her arms and performing backflips on the victory podium, implying a deep obsession with her muscles. She is a tomboy, which is even reflected in her original Crash Team Racing epilogue. She also hates losing, as she would sulk while crossing her arms. Despite this, Ami has shown to showcase her feminine side, as her Circus skin shows her posing around than showing acrobatic moves.

History

Crash Team Racing

Ami is responsible for handing out prizes to Tiny Tiger, Dingodile, Ripper Roo, Papu Papu, Komodo Joe, Pinstripe Potoroo, Fake Crash, Doctor Nefarious Tropy and Penta Penguin. The epilogue of the game states that she became a race kart driver herself, saying, "I'm sick of giving out trophies! I want a few of my own!"

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled

Ami appears as a playable character in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, as part of the post-launch Nitro Tour Grand Prix. She is an Advanced-class racer, like some of the characters she handed out prizes to in the original CTR

Possibly because of her playability, Ami and the rest of the Trophy Girls no longer hand out prizes at the end of races.
