Welcome to Bandipedia!



Liz is a character that appears in Crash Team Racing and its remake, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. She is a female bandicoot part of the Nitro Squad, responsible for handing out prizes to Polar and Pura in Crash Team Racing. She returns as a playable character in Nitro-Fueled, speaking with a British accent, suggesting she's from the United Kingdom.[2] Liz is named after Elizabeth (Liz) Ashford, who was the PR Manager for Sony Computer Entertainment Europe at the time.


Crash Team Racing[]

In Crash Team Racing, Liz is one of the motorsports models seen in the game along with Ami, Megumi and Isabella, handing out trophies to the winners at the end of races. Liz gives trophies to just Polar and Pura. The epilogue of the game states that she posed for Bandiboy Magazine, buying her dream Malibu mansion with the earnings.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled[]

Liz was added to the game as a playable racer in the Nitro Tour Grand Prix. She is a Turning class racer, similar to the racers she used to hand out prizes to (Polar and Pura).

Because of her playability, Liz and the rest of the Nitro Squad no longer hand out trophies at the end of races.

Physical description[]

Liz has black hair and a black tail, orange fur, a peach muzzle, blue eye shadow, and purple eyes. Her outfit consists of a short light green crop top that shows her midriff, a short purple skirt, and purple sneakers. She is often seen carrying a large green and purple striped umbrella.

In Nitro-Fueled, Liz now has purple highlights in her hair and tail, lighter fur and wears purple eyeshadow and lipstick. Her clothing is now altered as well: her crop top is now a tank top which is darker green with purple straps, her skirt and sneakers are now a dark purple with her skirt gaining white stripes and she now wears dark purple leggings under her skirt. Her left ear also has two silver piercings.


Although little of her personality is explored, Liz is implied to be hungry for fame and fortune. Her general attitude implies she has no interest in actually winning a race as much as basking in the attention victory would bring.
