Welcome to Bandipedia!



Nash is a shark-like alien from the planet Barin. He is one of Emperor Velo XXVII's champions that Team Bandicoot or Team Cortex must face in the Galactic Circuit to earn the second Champion Key.


Crash Nitro Kart[]

Nash is a cybernetically enhanced shark creature who is the champion of Barin. In the beginning of the cutscene, Nash is seen boxing with himself saying "Put 'em up, put 'em up!" He becomes antsy and begins yelling at Velo to start the race immediately but backs down when Velo starts to lose his temper with him. At the end of Team Bandicoot's victory, he asks if he may have his key back, but gets denied. He gets angry but suddenly faints when Coco hacks his brain to put him to sleep. At the end of Team Cortex's victory, Doctor N. Gin talks to Cortex about having cybernetic sharks as slaves, but Cortex points out how easily they can be beat. Much like in Team Bandicoot's victory, Nash is a sore loser and demands his key back from the team. He is eventually scared off by Velo. On the track, Nash uses shark teeth and joke teeth as weapons.

In the Game Boy Advance version of the game, he is unlocked by beating his boss challenge in Deep Sea Driving.

Physical description[]

Nash is a short, dark blue, shark-like alien. He has powder blue markings on his belly and muzzle and pure black eyes. He wears a bronze helmet with a small laser cannon on top. The helmet is connected to goggles over his eyes which are filled with water, keeping him hydrated. He has a bronze ring around his nose with a cross-hair on top, presumably used for aiming his laser cannon. A dull red cylinder is below his nose, attached to bronze piping that leads around his back, providing him water to breathe. He has red armour plates on his arms with bronze spikes on them, a bronze belt around his hips with a round buckle on the front, and an orange speedo with a green and yellow pattern on it.

In Nitro-Fueled, his design is changed slightly. His speedo is changed to board shorts, he's made more grey than blue and the water cylinder under his nose is attached to the cross-hair ring. His belt has been turned red, though the buckle remains bronze. Some of his skins in this game show him without his breathing apparatus. This may imply that he is able to breathe air, at least temporarily, as do the other members of his species in the game.


Nash is very bad tempered, impatient and high strung. He's cocky and so hyperactive that he does not even sleep naturally. Sleep must be forced by external means, such as hacking his cybernetic brain.
