N. Tropy brought me here to stop you bandicoots! I'd like to see you try to avoid me.

The Noid is an advertising mascot character for pizza chain Domino's Pizza, originally starring in an advertising campaign running from 1986 to 1989.[2] As part of a cross-promotion for its revival in 2021, it was temporarily added as a henchman in Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! during season 2, Running Outta Time!.[3]

History with the Crash Bandicoot series[]

Crash Bandicoot: On the Run![]

For a limited time during the Running Outta Time! season, The Noid was brought to Crash's dimension by N. Tropy (F) as a henchman to battle with Crash and Coco. It had a freeze ray for a weapon, attacking by firing bolts of ice at the player. Like all henchmen, it was defeated by reaching it and using the Portal Weapons crafted beforehand to send it back to its own dimension. Despite its freeze ray weapon, it was classified as an inferno enemy, with bonus trophies given when wearing skins with bonuses against inferno bosses. It could also be seen at the mission screen, demanding that Crash and Coco gather ingredients and weapons for it in return for trophies.

Characteristics[]

Personality[]

The Noid is a mischievous, erratic, aggressive imp who will stop at nothing to destroy any pizza it sees, particularly those of Domino's. It is described as being the physical manifestation of the challenges that come with making and delivering pizza quickly.

Physical Appearance[]

Trivia[]

  • The Noid reused the attacks of the Frosty Ant Drone, despite having the Inferno element.
  • The Noid attacking with a Freeze Ray is a reference to a commercial where it uses a machine called the 'Ice-o-Matic' to freeze pizzas and then shatter them.
