King Chicken is a chicken who wears a crown. He makes his first appearance in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled as an unlockable character in Adventure Mode after collecting five golden eggs spread around each area and bringing them to the door near the Tiger Temple warp pad in The Lost Ruins. He was introduced with the Neon Circus Grand Prix.
King Chicken is a white chicken with a crown on his head to distinguish himself from other chickens. The crown itself is bronze in color and has three red diamond-shaped rubies.
- King Chicken's default driving style is "Drift", which was introduced in Nitro-Fueled, and contrasts with every other character in the game.
- He shares Penta Penguin's gameplay trait of using either Aku Aku or Uka Uka at random.
