Rusty Walrus is a genetically enhanced walrus who appears only in Crash Twinsanity. He works for N. Gin as his battleship's cook.

He makes two cameo appearances in Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled in the track Megamix Mania, which partially is set within N. Gin's Battleship.


Crash Twinsanity[]

Not much is known about Rusty. What is known is that he is a chef under the employ of Dr. N. Gin (as shown on his apron). After Crash defeats N. Gin, the platform the fight took place on collapses. Crash falls and crashes through the desk of the ship, landing in a corridor. Rusty appears from another room, declares Crash to be his next meal, and begins chasing him. The chase that ensues is much like the traditional boulder dash levels of previous games. Obstacles include holes in the floor, Nitro Crates (which Rusty is immune to) and burning-hot steam. After the chase, Crash escapes.

His theme music is an a cappella version of the Hebrides Overture.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled[]

Despite not appearing as a playable character, Rusty has two cameos in Nitro-Fueled on the track Megamix Mania, which takes place in and around N. Gin's battleship. The first is a portrait of him spray-painted on the hull of the ship, with his name written next to it. The second is an imprint of him on a wall inside the ship, referencing him running into closing doors during his chase in Twinsanity.


Physical description[]

Rusty is a large, tall sky blue walrus. He has a beige belly and muzzle, black eyes, a tiny black nose, thick white claws on his hands and feet and long white tusks. He wears a white chef's hat and a small white apron with N. Gin's jolly roger-style emblem on it. He is always seen carrying an oversized meat cleaver with a wooden handle.


Little of Rusty's personality has been explored given his limited appearance. What is known is that his only goal seems to be catching "fresh meat" for his cooking. Rusty cares little for the lives of other creatures, attempting to catch and cook Crash alive. He isn't unable to be reasoned with however, since N. Gin hired him as a cook on his battleship.

Behind-the-scenes information[]


  • Rusty's full name is an homage to the NASCAR driver Rusty Wallace.
  • According to Twinsanity's lead concept artist, Keith Webb, Rusty's design was loosely inspired by Wally from the arcade game The NewZealand Story (known as Kiwi Kraze in the US).[1]
