Rash, otherwise known as Dave Shar, is a guest character in Killer Instinct (2013) from the well-known beat’em up Battletoads, made by the original Killer Instinct developers, Rareware. Rash was released in March 2016 as a part of the third season of support. 


According to the original Battletoads game, the main protagonists, including Rash, once were computer technicians and roommates. After an incident involving their suspicious boss and virtual reality simulations, the trio became trapped and transported to another planet in a distant part of the galaxy, transformed into the Battletoads. A sinister Dark Queen tried to destroy the heroes on arrival, but they battled their way for freedom and decided that defeating the Dark Queen would now be their ultimate goal. 

Tired of a never-ending repeating battle against the forces of the Dark Queen, Rash came to his friend and mentor, Professor T. Bird, asking for a new challenge he could face. The bird came up with an unusual proposition, which Rash accepted and traveled all the way back to Earth to join the battle in the Killer Instinct universe.  


Rash is a large anthropomorphic toad-like muscular creature with the ability to morph his body into various shapes. His skin is mostly green with shades of yellow around his face and torso, and his eyes are bright blue. Rash also wears a pair of black sunglasses.

Fighting style

Rash is one of the most mobile and hard to pin down characters in the game, with a Wicked Tongue move to control both ground and air approaches and a handful of great ground normals, which allows him to control the flow of the match at his own pace. 

However, Rash’s defensive options without a meter are quite poor, and all of his specials are negative on block, which makes him extremely vulnerable in case of a mistake or being pinned down.
