Here to defeat Spyro again!Gnasty Gnorc, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled
Gnasty Gnorc is a character from the Spyro the Dragon series. He is the main antagonist of the first game in the series and an antagonist in Spyro: A Hero's Tail.
As a Gnorc, Gnasty is a large, green, orc-like creature with two fangs protruding on his lower jaw. He possesses golden armor with spikes on the arm pads, and has a viking helmet. He possesses a belt, which holds his clothing, and has knee pads. He wields a large, blue scepter, which has multiple spikes on it.
In the original Spyro the Dragon game, Gnasty Gnorc is described as an unpleasant creature with the short temper of a gnome, and the bad attitude of an orc. He is shown to be self-conscious about his appearance, envies and resents dragons, and especially detests their Gems, as they not only look pretty, but their shiny surfaces show Gnasty his own reflections, reminding him of his unappealing appearance. He takes full offense in being called simpleminded, unthreatening, and especially ugly.
Some of this is reflected back in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, in which he occasionally retorts to racers he passes by saying they are ugly instead, as well proudly proclaiming that he is a threat after all when winning a race. Likewise, upon losing a race, he blames his loss on a dragon.
- He is the first villain introduced in the Grand Prix event from Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. Ironically, he has Sparx as his "Invincibility Mask" and Aku Aku as his tutor in Adventure Mode.
