  • I would love to see Crunch appear in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled.

    I wonder if they will have him be voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson again, who voiced Crunch in Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex.

    • It'll be weird to see him in a game that's set before Wrath of Cortex. But it'll be awesome to see him. I think he should use his Mr. T voice.

        Loading editor
    • Well, now that the Crash Nitro Kart tracks have been confirmed and a tweet said that all the tracks and characters from Nitro Kart will be in, looks like we're getting Crunch!

    • Yeah, except someone on this Wiki will just edit out any attempt we make to add it to the page.

      He claims to wait until it has been "officially comfirmed."

      ...

      How much more official can you get than from the mouth of the guy WORKING on the game?!

      (And as far as I know, he isn't even an admin.)

      Gameplay footage showing Crunch would be more official than a tweet just saying we would have every character from CNK. For all we know, he could be exaggerating when he says all the characters. Does that mean we would have all the CNK bosses as playable characters? Would we have both Velos? Would we have both the console exclusive Zem and Zam with the GBA exclusive Spyro? There's so much up for interpretation. It's best not to count Crunch, N. Trance or any CNK character as confirmed until we get more information. N. Tropy and Penta Penguin are still unconfirmed.

    • Do any of you watch a YouTube channel called "Canadian Guy Eh"? He is a big fan of Crash Bandicoot, as well as Spyro, and he had an interview with the director of the game, who specifically confirmed that Crunch will be a playable character.

        Loading editor
    • Look at the upload date. April 1st 2019. Nothing's reliable on that day.

        Loading editor
    • He was at Pax East and the director of the game was there and he had a legitimate interview. He left a comment on his video saying that he uploaded it on April Fools Day because it hit his regular upload schedule and that he doesn't do April Fools jokes.

        Loading editor
    • He even confirmed it on Twitter.

      That's the problem with April Fool's Day: when people are being serious, they think they're just joking around.



      I mean, let me give you this example: on what day of the year was Poker Night 2 officially announced/revealed? April 1st 2013.

      That turned out to be real.

    • I'm still waiting for an official character trailer for Crunch. Then we can actually confirm him being in-game.

    • We all are.

    • Honestly I find it ridiculous, just because a character doesn't have or appear in a trailer, that doesn't mean it's the only way to confirm a character, or any element for that matter, Fake Crash didn't until two days ago and he was already confirmed weeks before. Thomas Wilson, a director and co-head of Beenox, who's working with Activision to make this game, specifically stated that Crunch will be available in the game, we don't know how, but it's happening. If someone working on the game says what's going to be in it, it's going to be in the game, and if they end up being wrong or they take it back I guarantee that person would immediately be kicked off the project, even for an April Fools Joke, and considering there's no apology message from anywhere, and there was an elaboration video days later by the same person, there is literally nothing denying that the interview was real and what he said is true. Hence, Crunch Bandicoot HAS been officially confirmed to appear in Nitro-Fueled by a credible and reliable source from the head of the studio itself and should be added to the list, a trailer for or featuring him is absolutely unnecessary at this point, but would be much appreciated.

        Loading editor
    • That still doesn't confirm him actually being in the game. Only after we get a character trailer for Crunch should we add it in to the CTR Nitro-Fueled page. Until then, you'd better keep waiting.

    • OK, I think I need to make this a lot more easier to stomach for everyone...



      Look, he has been officially CONFIRMED by an official source.

      But he hasn't been officialy REVEALED by an official source.



      There. Does that sit with everyone better?

    • Then why are you exactly adding Crunch Bandicoot in the page when he's not even REVEALED yet?

        Loading editor
    • Here, let me do it in such a way that it pleases both parties...



      There. What I've done is added him to the page, but he won't appear. In other words, he's been hidden and will only appear when the code hiding him is taken out once he is revealed.

      Happy with that?

        Loading editor
    • No, because...

      1. You put him in the wrong place.
      2. If he's not been revealed, he shouldn't be there period.

      I'm just saying, other wikias I've been a part of would remove information like that immediately, so.....and for the record, no, I'm not an admin, but the point still applies.

        Loading editor
    • Crunch's inclusion is very speculatory at the moment. But he can be on the article with citation linking to the interview that confirmed he's in. But if an interview on April 1st wouldn't be trustworthy, then we wait until we see gameplay footage before adding him in.

        Loading editor
    • You know this whole thing is getting completely ridiculous, the more we keep arguing over whether or not to put Crunch in here, the more we end putting him in anyway and taking him out, and it won’t stop. If we’re going to settle this we need to come to a majority decision of whether or not to add him in and keep him. We need to vote on whether or not to add him to the list, otherwise the admins are likely going to lock the page until he’s been shown off, so we need to decide now. So please let’s all calm down and vote then give a proper explanation why you think so, you’ve already heard my argument, so now everyone else needs to, it’s the only way to get this to stop. Is that okay?

        Loading editor
    • If yes, then we put him in the list with proper citation, and keep him in, if no then we leave it alone until an official reveal, and we will have to respect the majority decision whether we like it or not.

      Exactly. But in the case of Crunch Bandicoot, he has been confirmed by the developers, yet he's not officially revealed in a trailer. (Like Fake Crash, who was revealed after he took over the Crash Bandicoot pages for April Fools Day)

      Does that not confirm anything at the moment?

      Can you change my vote to add Crunch? I know that I was against his inclusion months ago because of his origin and that was before we knew the Crash Nitro Kart tracks were in and I may have argued against the word not being enough, but if the creator specifically said Crunch is in and it wasn't an April Fool's prank, I think we should put him in with a ref tag. In fact, I think we should put ref tags on all the characters and tracks linking to a video or website that confirmed them. The characters that have trailers should have their citations link to the trailer. Those that don't should have a citation linking to a gameplay demo or a general trailer. And Crunch should link to the interview. Any tracks that haven't been seen should be removed from the page until we see them.

    • so how long do we have to wait until we reach our final decision of whether or not were adding crunch bandicoot

        Loading editor
    • You know, maybe we should wait for Crunch to actually be revealed in a trailer or demo before adding him in. Going by the word of every CNK character being in would mean we'd have to assume N. Trance, Zem, Zam and Velo and possibly the CNK bosses and Spyro would be in. Thomas Wilson may have specified that Crunch is in the game but some people would want more proof than words.

        Loading editor
    • ok

        Loading editor
    • Well, considering that it's almost been a week and the only people whom have not voted haven't come back to respond, I'm going to call it an end here and give the last two votes based their thoughts on previous messages, meaning that the final result is 5 to 3, for. Eugene8731, Nootwalker04, SeanWheeler, Future Beetle and I are for, HarmonyBunny, CrashBash and C.Syde65 are against. So this is my proposal, the list is for characters that have been confirmed to appear on the game, not for those whom have been revealed by trailer, and since the game is not out yet I suggest changing the list's name to "Confirmed Playable Characters" and keep it that way, and when the game comes out then we can change it back to just "Playable Characters", because that way Crunch doesn't need a trailer to confirm him, just a link to prove that he has been confirmed to appear in the game, which he is, followed by an explanation for his inclusion at the top. This clears up the need for a trailer, and this way if any other character that has yet to be revealed is confirmed to be playable, they can be added if there is proof. This is honestly the best way to add Crunch to the list right now that doesn't make things too difficult, not that it was before, but still this is the best I can think of, so for those against it, you're just going to have to deal with it because if we keep disagreeing on how to deal with this one situation any longer the admins are definitely going to lock this page, for how long, I don't know but it will happen, and no amount of begging or insisting will change their mind, it'll just make it worse. So can we please just agree on this one decision, because I'm doing it and I do not want to hear anymore "not revealed" or "nothing from Activision"? It doesn't matter that he hasn't been shown off in a trailer, and Activision isn't the only studio working on this game, he is officially confirmed to be playable by the director and co-head of Beenox, and nothing says otherwise, and a trailer isn't going to do anything except show what he looks like. So again can we PLEASE agree on this.

Trance as in without any proof other than "CNK characters are in." Thomas Wilson did specify Crunch, but I'd have to wonder about the other CNK characters. Crunch yes, Trance no? If every playable character from CNK is said to be in, N. Trance being a starter playable character in both versions of CNK would mean he's definitely in and be confirmed without being named. And then, there's Zem and Zam who were playable in the console versions where the tracks come from. Velo is playable as his true self in the consoles and in his big robot suit in the GBA version. All the bosses were playable in the GBA game along with the fan-favorite guest Spyro the Dragon. I think for the sake of arguing whether the other CNK characters are confirmed or not, I think we should wait for Crunch to actually be shown.

      Anyway, I agree with C.Syde. We should keep the CNK characters off our Nitro-Fueled page until they get shown off in a trailer. Even ones that have been named in an interview like Crunch.

      And now that the wiki proposal is done with, let's talk about how Crunch might play in the game. You think he'd be Advanced Class with the poor turning and great top speed like Tiny, Dingodile and Papu Papu? Would Isabella be the one to give him trophies because he's a bandicoot? Can we play as him and other unlockable characters in Adventure mode? Would we randomly see him as a CPU driver? Would Aku Aku be his mask? What color would his kart be?

But I guess with kart customization and the fact that the kart-colored dots on the map were replaced with the racers mugs, a kart's color probably wouldn't matter so much in Nitro-Fueled.

      Yeah, we do. Otherwise there'd be arguments about whether the CNK bosses and Spyro have been confirmed. If we wait for gameplay footage confirming them, it will be less messy. In fact, I think we should also go over the track listing and verify if we've seen them. Right now, all the tracks from CTR and CNK are listed, but I don't think we've seen all of them yet. Have we seen Mystery Caves, Tiger Temple, Blizzard Bluff, Dragon Mines, Slide Coliseum, Turbo Track, Inferno Island, Tiny Temple, Meteor Gorge, Barin Ruins, Out of Time, Thunderstruck, Assembly Lane, Android Alley, and Hyper Spaceway yet?

      Nah, we should have some fun talking about Crunch. The argument about listing him on the page or not was just something that derailed this discussion that started long before Crunch was even confirmed... What the? The opening post says it was edited by SeanWheeler? I'd never change someone else's post, so what's going on?

        Loading editor
    • I'm going to play as Crunch a lot in Nitro-Fueled. He was my favourite character to play as in Crash Nitro Kart. I think they're going to include him in future games as well, because some people probably don't know who he is. So they'll probably give him a new story in Crash Bandicoot 4. Another thing I noticed is that they're giving Crunch a special skin that you get for pre-ordering the game. They've mainly been giving all the attention to Crash, Coco and Cortex, the main characters.

        Loading editor
    • My real hope is that Crunch's voice actor is neither Kevin Michael Richardson nor Chris Williams impersonating Mr. T, honestly I get that Crunch is a fitness nut but his voice actors put a bit too much effort in that, and his caring traits could barely be taken seriously. I honestly think that the perfect voice actor for Crunch would be Travis Willingham, he's known for playing tough guys with big egos but occasional caring traits. Hopefully they at least think about what they want Crunch to sound like and don't go back to either of those two.

        Loading editor
    • So regular Crunch has a green kart, but Robot Crunch has a red kart? Can different skins change the default kart color or did the person making the trailer select the red paint to showcase?

    • Something tells me they won't go with that incarnation of Crunch ever again...

      Shame if you ask me. I thought he was kind of funny.



      Same goes with Nolan North's engine... And they gave him the cold shoulder.

      Who in their right mind gives NOLAN NORTH the cold shoulder?!

    • Honestly, I don't feel that he's right for any of these characters, I still couldn't believe he was N. Gin, he sounded so different.

        Loading editor
    • But he gave the guy so much more personality than any other rendition of the character.

      I don't get why people don't like Nolan North N. Gin...

        Loading editor
    • The way I see Nolan North, he's the kind of person who's known for playing characters with a very edgy personality with light moments of comedy, N. Gin is all comedy, tiny edge. To me, it honestly did not fit him, plus I didn't even know it was him at the time.

    • I have no idea who Nolan North is. I didn't know he voiced N. Gin!

        Loading editor
    • He also did Tiny and Dingodile for the last two games.

    • I see.

    • I see what you mean, Justbenn...

      But the voiceline I provided in my other comment was of a character he did from Team Fortress 2 known as Merasmus. He's a character that's SUPPOSED to be evil (or at least, he thinks he is) but he's actually a complete buffoon.

      Example:

    • While I hated what Radical did to N. Gin and Tiny, at least Crunch's Mr. T personality was close enough to his "Eat less, exercise more" thing from Crash Nitro Kart. I think his lines from CNK might have been what inspired Radical to make him a copy of Mr. T. But making N. Gin and Tiny into bad gay stereotypes really clashes with the German cyborg N. Gin (which I guess might be too similar to Von Clutch) and the Hulk-like Tiny.

    • "German cyborg N.Gin"

      Since when was he ever considered to be or even similar to German?

        Loading editor
    • I just thought his accent sounded German.

        Loading editor
    • And I thought Von Clutch was supposed to be a German cyborg...

        Loading editor
    • He is. The conversation was about N. Gin.

      And honestly, I LOVE Von Clutch's accent! It's just ridiulous and goofy and so funny! It makes everything he says audible gold!

    • I've been wondering about Crunch's Robot skin exclusive to the Nitros Oxide edition. I suppose Crunch is half-cyborg, but a full-on robot as a skin? Genius.

    • im confused since when did we had 7 playable characters and 6 bosses in nitro kart originally there was suppose to be a 6 boss character in crash team racing named fasty but was cut the only ones that didnt make it in the trailer was norm big norm n trance and emperor velo in his robo suit and probably his servants as well

    • Fasty wasn't a Crash character. Charles Zembillas confirmed as such in his art page. It wasn't even drawn by him.

      It looks more like an off-road helmet to me, which fits with the arena-like environment Crunch is in.

      It's Crunch, you can see by the body shape and the fact he also screamed "booya" (which seemed to be Kevin Michael Richardson's voice).

      Gonna take a wild guess it's Tiny Arena, which is the only arena-based race track. Unless I could be wrong.

      Good guess, I think it's Tiny Arena too, though now I am confusing the Tiny Arena track with the other track Chick and Stew are in (the stadium-like track).

    • I think it's supposed to be just a plain motocross outfit. Master Chief is supposed to have dark green with a helmet similar to Samus Aran from what I've seen.

    • So we now have our first gameplay of Crunch, and from what I hear, his voice actor is neither Chris Williams nor Kevin Michael Richardson, it's much lighter than before, and thank goodness they ditched the Mr. T impression. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZI2_cxNgOM

    • On subject here... the first Grand Prix will have Racer Crunch as a skin, which is essentially him in racing gear attire.

    • The Grand Prix has changed the mask of a few characters. I thought it was just all the aliens until I saw Oxide use Uka Uka in Crystal Grab. Did he keep Uka Uka because that was the mask coded to him in CTR? Is it the characters that made their racing debut in CNK who got Velo? Can someone check whether or not Crunch still has Aku Aku? I would but I just turned off my game and I don't want to just switch the power willy-nilly.

    • Yeah, I checked an hour later. He still has Aku Aku. I wonder why Oxide doesn't have the Velo Mask? Oh well, what happens with Oxide doesn't matter with Crunch.

      They've only done this with the characters that appeared in Crash Nitro Kart that did not appear in Crash Team Racing, minus Crunch Bandicoot of course.

      I still find it disappointing that they had to make N. Trance protected by Velo. Since N. Trance is allied with Uka Uka in N-Tranced. And would likely have been allied with him if he hadn't been cut from Twinsanity, or if Cortex Chaos hadn't been scrapped altogether.

      My main concern is that it will make people forget that N. Trance was allied with Uka Uka in his debut appearance.

        Loading editor
    • The real question is: Which came first? Crash Nitro Kart or Crash Bandicoot 2: N-Tranced? I'll go with the latter being N. Trance's debut appearance.

        Loading editor
    • Crunch was a villain in his debut appearance too. May have been brainwashed for the whole game. But I don't think the Velo mask was necessary for the patch. The aliens were doing fine when they were protected by Uka Uka. And why didn't Oxide get a Velo mask if Velo himself was on his team? And the Velo mask getting added does raise questions about whether we'd get a Sparx mask in the Spyro Grand Prix. And they changed the mask's sound from Robo Velo's deep chuckle to Real Velo's insane laugh. I really don't like insane laughter as a mask sound effect.

    • I would make a separate discussion for this but I can't figure out how to so I'm just going to talk about it here. On the Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled page, I made an edit to the character table to say that each of the Nitro Girls are available for 1500 Wumpa Coins or for 5175 Wumpa Coins in their respective Nitro Squad bundles. When I looked at the page again, I saw that someone changed it.
