The Kruncher is a very wide and large, purple fish. He isn't that tall compared to other characters, yet he is still very big. He has pink, spiky fins on his head and across his back. He also wears a white t-shirt and a black bandana. He also drives a blue boat that resembles a shark, with the number "7" on the side.
The Kruncher was first seen after Captain Lutefisk announced his name. He made a joke at SpongeBob (who was known as The Squish at the time) saying how he should be "afraid" of him. The Kruncher attempts to crash SpongeBob, but he ends up being crashed into a wall. The Kruncher makes another attempt, but SpongeBob collides into him causing The Kruncher to crash into The Cackling Cruiser, losing the Derby.
