Crash! Only you can prevent this!Yaya Panda, Crash Nitro Kart 2
Yaya Panda is a panda bear residing in a bamboo forest. When Nitros Oxide teamed up with Dr. Neo Cortex and Ripper Roo to deforest her habitat in Crash Nitro Kart 2, Yaya joined forces with Crash and Coco to prevent their nefarious plan.
Her appearances include Crash Nitro Kart 2, Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D, and Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2. She is also the only character from the Crash Bandicoot series to originate from a mobile phone game, and has since only ever appeared on that platform.
Yaya is unlocked upon players completing the fifth and sixth challenges in Challenge Mode.
Yaya's cute and cuddly appearance hides a crazy love for extreme speeds.
Yaya is a panda, though how she came to be is unknown. She has black and white fur, black circles around her green eyes, and short black hair, some of which is tied up in buns and a red clip in her bangs. She also wears a green cheongsam with red stitching. Due to her only appearances being in mobile games, she has no known torso or lower body portion.
Yaya has a slow acceleration, but is very fast. Her petite frame and light weight make her perfect for tight corners.
During races, she can also be heard shouting "Hi-yah!", possibly hinting that she practices kung fu.
