Penta Penguin is a secret unlockable character in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled (CTR). Even though this character is not needed for the “Is everyone here?” trophy or achievement, it’s still one of the best for time trials and good to complete your roster.
To unlock Penta Penguin, you must input a cheat code in the Main Menu Title Screen (where it says Adventure, Local Arcade, Online etc) and enter the following code:
- PS4: Hold L1+R1, press Down, Right, Triangle, Down, Left, Triangle, Up
- Xbox One: Hold LB+RB, press Down, Right, Y, Down, Left, Y, Up
- Nintendo Switch: Hold L+R, press Down, Right, X, Down, Left, X, Up
You should hear a confirmation sound and a character icon in the bottom left corner if you did it correctly. Penta Penguin can then be selected for every type of race. It’s a maximum speed character and very good for time trials. Unlike other speed-class characters, Penta is very small, so doesn’t obscure the view as much.

And that’s all there is to unlocking the Penta Penguin character, enjoy your new racer!
