The Aquabats! vs. The Floating Eye of Death!
Article may contain spoilers.
Crash McLarson is the bassist (and in early years, trombonist) for The Aquabats. He is one of two founding members of the band still in the line-up. He uses his emotionally-based super size to fight crime - when he's not too scared of his own shadow, that is.
Crash is the biggest of The Aquabats in height and seemingly in weight. He is pretty muscular, but in a real way, not a body builder way.
He usually has a shaved head under his Anti-negativity helmet, but his pupils are red, alluding to his heritage as a McLarson.
Despite being overly emotional and slightly dim-witted, Crash is the kindest and most good-natured member of The Aquabats.
In his origin cartoon, Crash tells about meeting the other Aquabats on his first day of public school. He was afraid of getting bullied, and sure enough, when he introduced himself, he was mocked by the tough kids in school, The MC Bat Commander and Eaglebones Falconhawk.
At recess, Crash began talking with two other new students, Ricky and Jimmy, who convinced him to go trash talk the two bullies and challenge them to a playground gladiator match. Although Crash's trash talking wasn't the best, the fight was underway. Ricky, Jimmy, and Crash backed the Commander into a corner, only for him to congratulate them, telling them they'd passed their test, an initiation into the Aquabats, a "ragtag group of rock and roll freedom fighters dedicated to protecting the world". The new quintet then set off to "rescue" a carton of chocolate milk from another student.
Crash possesses incredible strength, in the episode Summer Camp!, he easily lifted a large boulder over his head.
Crash has the power to grow up to a hundred feet tall, unfortunately, this ability is tied to his emotions, as such, whenever he gets mad or upset, there is a risk of him growing.
This is usually accompanied by his cry of "Getting Emotiona-a-a-a-a-l!"
Crash considers his fellow Aquabats to be his best pals, never hesitating when it comes to protecting them, and gets enraged when someone tries to hurt them. When they were under attack by ManAnt's giant ants, Crash, in a rage, grew to a gigantic size and kicked away the giant ants.
When Eaglebones made Crash think that Ronmark had broken Jimmy, Crash yelled in anger, grew huge, grabbed Ronmark, yelled "You broke my friend!" and chucked him into space. During the cartoon interludes of season one of the Super Show, Crash puts himself on the line several times in attempts to save Jimmy.
Crash wished him into the world, and the newly created ManAnt saw Crash as his mommy. But with Crash's sudden departure, he felt abandoned by his motherly figure and has harbored a grudge ever since. From his intimate knowledge of Crash's powers, his intimate knowledge of how to ensnare Crash, and his intimate knowledge of how to manipulate Crash's emotions, it can be assumed that he spent many years stalking Crash.
Crash is easily frightened by scary things, and usually states that "I hate ______" when he's afraid of it.
This list includes:
- Cinnamon on the cocoa
Oddly enough, Crash is not afraid of zombies. He isn't able ot tell the difference between them and mummies until someone else points out the difference.
Chad Larson Edit
Chad brings punk rock fury to the band, as his background dips deep into the early eighties LA punk rock scene. Until they broke up in 1997, he was the bassist for B.H.R. (Which stands for different things depending on who you ask.)
Chad is a professional electrician and lives with his wife and four kids in Huntington Beach, CA
Crash plays bass and and is currently one of the only two remaining founding members. However, in the very, very early days of the band, he played trombone. He is considered second in command of the band by some. He is the strongest of the Aquabats and can smash any foe with his punk rock fists. Also, he can grow larger... a bit.
Crash McLarson, the most punk rock bass playing super hero known to man, began his quest to fight evil and be in a rock and roll band at an early age. Now a little older, Crash is the muscle behind the band and the man most likely to break something whether you want him to or not.
Crash has a special power to grow large which although may be a great asset to the band in battle, has not yet really been mastered by Crash and can happen at awkward times. It seems to work the best when Crash is emotional about something and gets upset which can happen at awkward times.
Crash is a fierce fighter and is very loyal to his band mates when push comes to shove. Crash can sometimes be a little lazy and over confident and at times, a bit of a bull in a china shop but always means well and is a great friend to the band and their fans. Crash is also the most emotional Aquabat and can burst into tears and grow 50 feet tall at any given time.
