–Crazy Barks

Crazy Barks is a character who appears in every Raposa-based game in the Drawn to Life Series. As his name suggests, he is more erratic than a typical Raposa, and he tends to scare or confuse the other residents of Rapoville because of this. He was the one who taught Heather how to speak in the Raposa realm, and he was crucial in determining the location of Wilfre's Wasteland.

Crazy Barks has orange fur and a white beard and moustache. He wears green trunks which he might have found in Surf Beach. A green leaf covers his head which he uses as a hat. His eyes are shown to be wide and crazy. In the Wii game, he wears a leaf loincloth instead of trunks.

Drawn to Life[edit]

In Drawn to Life, Crazy Barks left the village with his crew of Raposa children and went to Surf Beach to find a new home. However, they were captured and imprisoned in Shadow Cages. Some time later, the Hero rescues them and returns them to the village, where Crazy Barks will constantly guard his rock and chase villagers who come near it. At the end of the game, he is shown teaching Heather how to speak.

Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter[edit]

In the beginning of Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter, Crazy Barks is one of the few Raposa that is not sucked into one of Wilfre's portals. He shows everyone that the Creator's ship was safe by jumping aboard, naming the vessel Turtle Rock. Throughout the game, he acts as the sail for Turtle Rock by using a blanket found after Baki Basement is cleared.

After Sock is revealed to be Wilfre, all that is left from his departure is Sock's hat. Crazy Barks sees an opportunity for a sail in this item, and so used it as his new sail for Turtle Rock. However, the hat blew towards a different direction then the wind, pointing towards Wilfre's Wasteland, so Pirate Beard steers the boat with the hat, leading the group to the village.

Drawn to Life: Two Realms[edit]

Crazy Barks is first seen in Drawn to Life: Two Realms after Mike arrives in Rapoville for the second time. The Hero is tasked with challenging Crazy Barks' mind while Mike catches up with some of his old friends. After the Hero clears his mind, Mike and the Hero return to Belleview with the Watch.

Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter (Wii)[edit]

In Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter (Wii), Crazy Barks is acts more like a dog than a Raposa, and Heather is the only one able to understand his barks. He is first seen stealing the Book of Life, as he sensed danger and wanted to protect it. He returns the book to Mari and he begins to calm down. Some time later, Crazy Barks decides to run through the Shadow City gate, leaving Heather behind. Jowee and the Hero find him in the heart of Shadow City, and when the three of them return to Rapoville, Heather explains that Crazy Barks found a path to the Shadow Labyrinth.
