Welcome to Bandipedia!



Barin is the second planet encountered in Crash Nitro Kart. It is a frozen, hilly land that has lava, mines, snow, and underwater sections resembling Atlantis and post-apocalyptic ruins. The planet's name comes from the word "barren", which means empty, as the planet is desolate and abandoned. The boss of the planet is Nash and the race against him takes place in Deep Sea Driving.

There is an outdoor section with brick ruins, icy machinery and a snowy pitch. Snow falls around the mountains outside. This world's battle arena, Frozen Frenzy, is located next to Meteor Gorge, with a similar aesthetic, and both areas use the same music. There is an underwater tunnel with the view of the seafloor underneath. The sea is above the snow and is easy to find as Barin is ice, snow and lava. Barin is in a layout with the hubworld being on the sea in-slope and with the tracks on the outside of the hub, not far away, with the exception of Deep Sea Driving, which is quite far under the sea.

The planet is inhabited by a race of sapient shark-like aliens, which Nash belongs to.
