Crash Dash is a minigame genre in Crash Bash. In it, you take control of a hovercraft similar to Oxide's one (Although in Splash Dash they ride various sea creatures) and race around a circular arena ten times. There are four Crash Dash minigames: Dot Dash, Toxic Dash, Splash Dash and Dante's Dash. Crash Dash is often considered one of the hardest minigame genres as many players have difficulty with it.
The player has an energy gauge under their mug. By holding , the player accelerates and when they bump into another player while accelerating, they will get pushed away. Missiles also make an appearance in Crash Dash. When a player is hit by one of these, they will get pushed away, similar as to how they do when they get hit by an accelerating opponent.
