Polar's Father is Polar's unnamed father. While his appearances are next to non-existant in the games, he plays a significant role in the seventh chapter of the manga Crash Bandicoot: Dance! Then Jump! Na Daibōken, Panic at the Snow Mountain!!.


Crash Bandicoot: Dance! Then Jump! Na Daibōken[]

The only significant role that Polar's father has in the series is in Chapter 7: Panic at the Snow Mountain!!. When Cortex's plan to disguise himself as Crash in order to trick Polar into telling him where the power stone is fails, Polar's father witnesses Cortex throwing Polar to the ground, which sends him into a rage. Polar's father furiously chases after Cortex, but quickly loses track of him. He then notices the real Crash walking nearby and, thinking that Crash was the one that hurt Polar, starts chasing him. Crash has no clue what's going on and begs for mercy, but Polar's father is relentless, attacking and chasing Crash and Aku Aku until they take shelter inside a cabin. This plan turned out useless, as they forgot to barricade the back door, making it easy for Polar's father to walk right in.

Polar's father carries the beaten bandicoot through the forest, looking for Polar so that he can make Crash apologise, only to see Cortex grilling a sobbing Polar for information on the power stone's location. Noticing the remains of Cortex's disguise, Polar's father realises that he'd been tricked, and turns on him instead. After Cortex had gotten his just desserts, Polar's father apologizes profusely to Crash and Aku Aku. When Crash asks Polar about the power stone, Polar tells his father to give it to Crash, only for the "power stones" that Polar mentioned to be just rock candies.

Other appearances[]

In the level Un-Bearable in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, Crash is chased by large polar bears while riding on Polar's back. In the Japanese version of the game the level is called にげろや パパぐま (lit. Escape from Papa Bear), implying that one of the bears is Polar's father.

In the Japanese version of CTR: Crash Team Racing, the course Polar Pass is known as どっきり! カチカチパパぐま (lit. Startling! Frozen Papa Bear). This implies that the polar bear frozen in ice at a fork in the road is Polar's father.

The level Un-Bearable remains in the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy remake of Cortex Strikes Back, with the Japanese version maintaining the same name.

The Japanese version of Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled retains the same name for Polar Pass as the original game.


Physical description[]

Polar's father is a large polar bear. His main physical characteristics are his immense size, towering over Crash and Cortex, and his sharp teeth. His coloration is uncertain since the manga was printed in black and white, but considering that he is a polar bear, it's safe to assume white fur.


Polar's father is very over-protective of his son, being a living incarnation of the "papa bear" trope. He is extremely violent and aggressive when he feels Polar is threatened, but is more calm and friendly in peaceful circumstances, apologizing sincerely when he realized his anger at Crash was misdirected.
