Oxide's Hovercraft is a green hovercraft belonging to Nitros Oxide. It has been seen in many Crash games and acts as a kart for him. It has appeared in Crash Team Racing, Crash Bash, Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex, and Crash Twinsanity.


The body of the vehicle is a bright green color with chrome headlights and exhaust pipes. It is about three times the size of a standard kart.

A variation of the hovercraft is seen in the level Oxide Ride in Crash Bash, where two wings jut out from the sides. The coloration of this hovercraft is more greyish than the previous hovercraft. However, the rest of the hovercraft seems to resemble the previous hovercraft.

When the player enters the ballistix part of Oxide Ride, Nitros Oxide switches to yet another variation of his hovercraft. This one has a strip of lights replacing his headlights from Crash Team Racing. The coloring is also darker.

In Crash Twinsanity, Oxide reverts back to a hovercraft similar to his original hovercraft. There are only two minor changes in appearance: the headlights have a black encasement as opposed to the chrome ones in Crash Team Racing, and this hovercraft only has four exhaust pipes as opposed to six in Crash Team Racing.


Oxide's hovercrafts have served several purposes throughout the series. The original purpose seen for the hovercraft was to travel short distances through space and race similarly to a kart in Crash Team Racing. In the same game, the hovercraft is able to shoot missiles, etc. like any of the karts.

In Crash Bash, however, Oxide's hovercraft is shown being able to travel through deep space. A new feature of the hovercraft in Crash Bash is its ability to participate in a ballistix-style game. Here it can repel the balls, like any of the crafts in the other ballistix levels.
