Nitros Oxide is the main antagonist of the 1999 racing game Crash Team Racing. He is an alien who challenges Crash and his friends to a racing tournament. If he wins, he plans to enslave the entire planet by turning it into a parking lot.
Oxide does not play fairly - he starts the race before the green light goes off. He also barrages the player with beakers, TNT crates, Nitro crates, and bombs.
Crash Nitro Kart
Nitros Oxide also makes an appearance in Crash Nitro Kart as part of Velo's squad of racers. He is only playable outside storymode.
- His name "Nitros Oxide" is a pun on his reputation as a racer.
