Emperor Velo XXVII, Crash Nitro Kart

Emperor Velo XXVII, or Velo for short, is a galactic alien dictator who rules the Galactic Circuit, and is the main antagonist of Crash Nitro Kart. Just like his fellow Nitros Oxide, Velo is a narcissist and egoist. His true form is known as Real Velo, which shows him to be the same size as the other aliens within his race.


At the beginning, Velo was portrayed as a green big fat humanoid alien, full of warts, yellow eyeballs, red iris, pointy ears, blue lips, sharp teeths, purple hair (orange in the cutscenes) sharp nails in 4 fingers & 3 toes and a V-shaped goatee. His outlift was purple clothes with red borders, golden helmet, double earrings, golden rings (with and without diamonds), gold on some boards, golden amulet with the letter V and red slippers with golden soles.

In the end it was just a robotic suit,[1] Velo is actually similar to his planet people. He have the same characteristic, but he is small, white eyeballs and pink trousers.


Prior to the events of the game, Velo claims only a few abducted for him got the twelve trophies and those who challenged him were overcome.[2][3]

In Crash Nitro Kart, Velo learned about racing skills of Crash Bandicoot with his friends & Dr. Neo Cortex with his henchmen, then abducted them to entertain his people and threatened to destroy the Earth they refuse.[4] He also summons N. Trance with his slaves and Nitros Oxide with his gang to be part of his tutoring. During that time, Velo is intolerant of his champions for losing to the earthlings and some of them like Norm & Geary are punished.[5][6] When it's his turn, Velo tries to win using Bombs from behind, Missiles from the front and his minions protect him spreading the Static Orbs. Even defeated, Velo still wants to destroy the earth until he is challenged in a rematch and would only take it back to earth if the earthlings collected all his Time Relics. Velo has a fury attack in his last defeat in which he hit one of his advisers and explodes revealing that is a robotic shell where his true form appears.

In Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, Real Velo appears after the game's release, but his suit is part from Gasmoxia grand prix.
