Gasmoxia is the home planet of Nitros Oxide, who soon returned home after his first defeat in Crash Team Racing. Not much was known about Gasmoxia at the time, only that it has a dark green moon and is in the Milky Way (of the Crash canon), which Oxide confirmed by calling himself "the fastest racer in the galaxy." When Oxide returned as a boss in Crash Bash, in the boss level Oxide Ride, the battle against him was set in a futuristic, carnival-like city on Gasmoxia. Zam and Zem also come from this planet, but they are of a different species. This alien world is dark, green, misty, and surrounded by a poisonous atmosphere. Possibly, only gas-proof creatures with green skin can live there.
