Catbat is a playable character in the upcoming game Crash Team Rumble, having first appeared as a cameo in Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time. They are a fusion of a cat and a bat.

It seems they may be a foil of Dingodile, as cats parallel with dogs (which dingos are a species of) in pop culture, as well as Dingodile having feuded with the bats of Mosquito Marsh during the events of Crash Bandicoot 4.

General information[edit]

Catbat is a slim cat-bat hybrid with light blue-green fur. They have yellow eyes with catlike slit pupils and heavy eyebrow ridges, surrounded by dull pink markings and a scar over their right eye. They have a small pink nose, large fangs and long pointed ears with three silver piercings in the left ear. They also have a long thin tail and large spiked bat wings with pink webbing. They wear a black leather jacket with a tall, studded collar, dull blue jeans with a tear over the right knee, a black leather belt with a skull-shaped buckle, and a silver spiked ring around their tail. They don't wear anything under their jacket, showing purple stripes on their chest. They have bare feet with large brown claws.


Designer and artist Nicholas Kole has stated that the character was originally designed as nonbinary and uses gender neutral pronouns,[1][2] although this may change in the final release of Crash Team Rumble. Since they are a playable character, they were designed to look more legible and appealing than monster-y.[3]



  • Nicholas Kole, Catbat's designer, has responded to a Tweet asking if they played in a band, saying they would play in a goth or glam rock band.[4]
