With Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled recently dropped, it's a good time to look back on the classic version of the game, released in 1999. Up to 20 years of anniversary, the game surely holds up.  Here, each playable character from the original game is ranked, based solely on the original. The latest Nitro Fueled version will also get a ranking, but there are other factors playing there.
For example, the new version has additional characters, a Pit Stop store front, various ways to unlock the various available characters and will have Nitrous Oxide as playable character.
Remember how you couldn't play him on the original? Even after turning each mode back, forward and standing upside down? That means he won't stay with us here.
How the character's career progressed after Crash Team Racing is fair game on the resume list, but not here. This means that the Nitro Fueled version is not just this list of the new ones, as there is another set of criteria that gives us another order.
With all that out of the way, however, it is time to dive in.
