Crash was an opossum that was one of a herd of various animals brought together by a number of adventures. He is a major character in Ice Age: The Meltdown, a supporting character in Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Ice Age: Collision Course and a minor character in Ice Age: Continental Drift.
A rude, rambunctious possum, Crash enjoyed dangerous games and pranks with his brother Eddie, but remained closely protective of his family, notably his sister Ellie. Crash shaped himself differently as he joined a herd of various animals, becoming more loyal to his family, if still loud and crass. Crash has a rounded nose, a slightly shorter muzzle than Eddie's, and his eyes are blue. Crash's face is also fully the same color (light cream), while Eddie has a brown stripe down his nose.
One winter, when Crash and Eddie were both small, their mother had found a young mammoth calf out in the snow, calling for its herd. Though the mammoth was of a different species, Crash and Eddie's mother decided to adopt her. The young mammoth, named Ellie, became a part of the possum way of life, protected and watched over by her adoptive brothers.

They end up playing a real life game of Whack-A-Mole. They fail, but they chase them until they find Manny and Ellie. There Manny, Sid and Diego find out that Ellie, Crash and Eddie are "siblings". Because of Sid, they decide to travel together, so they don't die in the flood.

After one of Scrat's ordeals, they come to a nesting ground of vultures, and are chased all the way through the canyon. They then reach the geyser field, but Ellie and the possums don't want to go through the geyser field, so they turn back and go the other way. Ellie is then trapped in a cave, and they go back to get help from the others.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs
In the third movie, Crash and his brother Eddie claimed that they didn't even like Sid because he is an idiot. But they had to come along to rescue Sid with Ellie and the others. They meet Buck after being saved with an enthusiastic attitude, asking manny if they could keep their new found friend. After awhile of travelling through the jungle, crash grows a lot of admiration and respect for Buck with his brother, even going as far as wanting to go on some adventures and defeat dinosaurs with him, trying to prove how awesome they are to their idol. Once they are close to the falls, Crash along with his brother goes ahead with Buck to save Sid at lava falls with excitement but quickly realizes they may die trying. Not knowing what Buck has planned, they suddenly ride onto a Harpactognathus towards the falls. Crash soon adjusts to the situation and is the first to spot Sid on a floating rock ahead, as they move on he also senses something behind which turns out to be a group of ten Quetzalcoatluses. Trying to fly away from the predators, Buck tells the two possums to act courageous and grab some nearby berries. With that Crash lends his tail for Eddie and points forward to guide the ammo being fired at their attackers. When they return to the falls, they catch Sid and the two possums cheerfully pop their heads over the Pterodactyl's shoulder and greet him.
At the end of the third movie, Crash and Eddie become adopted uncles (along with Sid and Diego) as they have a "niece" called Peaches, whom they love very much.
Crash and Eddie are the same loud-mouth, antagonistic possums who love X-treme sports and trouble.
When at the beginning of the film they were blissfully fast asleep when Manny woke them up rudely to ask where Peaches went, they dumbly said that they "didn't" see Peaches sneak off, where later they try to kept an eye out for her but do not make a good job. As the continent starts to crumble all around them they help look for Louis along with Ellie and Peaches.
Louis asks them how could they be so happy when their home is falling apart, Crash simply told him that they were stupid but, they just didn't respond, Crash just squeezed his nose saying "beep". They were terrified when they found out that the land bridge wasn't there anymore and were taken hostage.. During the fight against the pirates, they were briefly seen clinging to Dobson's back, and again when the Sub-Zero Heroes were cornered.
As they embrace their herd after the battle, they headed off to find some new home where they are looking forward to new horizons that wait among them.
They have much smaller roles in this movie than its predecessors.
During spring, Crash and Eddie were watching a game with their friend and brother-in-law. They decided to make pranks, picking Peaches to be their first victim. Later, their pranks caught Scrat and Squint.
Acting as sports hosts, Crash and Eddie watched Manny and Peaches play hockey. They later, trying to play hockey, tackled each other with the small hockey sticks made for them. Later, at their sister and brother-in-law's anniversary, they begin chanting Manny's name to see what he has for her on their anniversary. Fireworks lit up the sky. At the party, they tried to shove as many grapes as they can into each other's mouths. Seeing it was not fireworks and rather an asteroid coming toward them, they hid in a cave until it was over. They found that their friend, Buck, was trying to get out of a purple-smoking hole. Manny pulled him up, and Buck became the leader of their journey. Later after that, they find themselves in Geotopia, a crystal place. They go on a trip to the Geotopian master on crystal hoverboards. They find out it's a llama called Shangri Llama. Sid destroys the Geotopia wall, trying to get a crystal for the love of his life. The Geotopians agree to give up their crystals to save their lives. Three dino-birds hit the giant crystal, but agree to help to save their lives as well.
Later, after their victory, Crash and Eddie go to their niece's wedding, where Brooke sings My Superstar.
Eddie is Crash's brother. The two brothers are inseparable and are constantly pranking, cracking jokes, and having fun. The two always mess around and often comfort each other by hugging while scared.
Ellie at first is a little protective of her brothers and played with them a lot. Crash and Eddie often find safety being on her tusks and are also very protective of their sister.
Crash and Eddie admire Buck a lot. They strive to be like him, even wanting Rudy to give them an eye-patch like Buck's. The brothers love adventures with Buck. Buck even chose Crash and Eddie to go into his mind to help them understand space rocks.
