Crash Bandicoot Carnival.
His Japanese name, Papaguma, literally means "papa bear". In addition, his name is an obvious pun on the words "bear" and "terminator".
The Bearminator is the only new boss of Crash Bash; the other three bosses, Papu Papu, Komodo Joe and Moe and Nitros Oxide were bosses of previous games.
Though his appearance is exactly the same as the giant polar bears from Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Team Racing (minus the hat and lower detail), there is no evidence that he is one of them.
