Welcome to Bandipedia!



Krunk is one of Velo's champions and is the champion of Terra, the first planet in Crash Nitro Kart.


Crash Nitro Kart[]

When Krunk first sees the racers, he immediately condemns them as slow, and demands Velo to send them back, but Velo informs Krunk that they are from Earth, a planet which he shows dislike towards for "copying" Terra. He declares that he will race to prove his planet is better.

When the player races him, he will lay down Sticky Fruit to try to stop the player's character from winning. Defeating him gets the player the first of the four keys in the game.

When he is defeated by Team Bandicoot, he sadly tells them that Terra is free to roam because they now have his key. After hearing this, Crash shows a bit of compassion for Krunk and gives him his yo-yo which Krunk sees as a gift from Earth. Afterwards, he apologizes, admitting that it was Terra that "copied" Earth as he tries to learn how the yo-yo works. Afterwards, Velo warps up and sees Krunk tangled up in Crash's yo-yo, and is disgusted and angrily tells him to leave his sight. Krunk is then teleported away, most likely back to his home planet Terra.

When defeated by Team Cortex, he says the same thing and asks them not to cause trouble. Cortex promises this, at least until he conquers his own planet first, to which Krunk shows disdain for. Velo appears and tells Krunk to leave his sight. Krunk is then teleported away, most likely back to Terra.

He is unlocked in the Game Boy Advance version of Crash Nitro Kart by beating him in his boss challenge on Jungle Boogie.

Physical description[]

Krunk is a bright blue, ape-like alien. He is average height and has a large belly. He has a large red nose with a golden ring in it, red markings on his cheeks, red lips and black eyes with yellow scleras. He has large tufts of blonde hair on both sides of his head, as well as a blonde goatee on his chin and thick blonde eyebrows. He has a lighter blue patch on his stomach and a long tail with a golden ring around it, near the tip. He wears a purple head dress with red feathers with yellow tips. He has a red and purple striped collar with golden trim, red and gold cuffs around his forearms and baggy purple pants with a red loincloth over it.

His design sees next to no changes in Nitro-Fueled. The only difference is his eyes, which are now gold with white scleras and have dark blue bags underneath.


Krunk is largely portrayed as an aggressive and prideful racer, wishing to race Team Bandicoot and Team Cortex to prove his planet's superiority. He seemingly shows low esteem towards Earthlings, but later shows a more mellow attitude after his loss and humbly admits that his planet Terra was actually a copy of Earth. Crash presents him the gift of a yo-yo to make up for the loss of his key, whilst Cortex boasts that he has no interest in dominating Terra until he has taken over Earth first.
