Banny Passerini is a character in the Bread's Crumbs Cinematic Universe, serving as an antagonist and later a protagonist. He is a supporting antagonist in Bread's Crumbs 3: Scrub Slam, but later allies with The Clan. He is portrayed by Ryan Grier.
As the son of the notorious Biscuit Savage, Banny sought to follow in his father's footsteps as a member of the U.B.N.V.A.. As he grew very fond of the organization, one of the group's leading members, Nazi Mitch, betrayed Banny's father and nearly killed him. However, Banny was unaware of this, and was fooled into thinking The Clan killed his father. Nazi Mitch used this lie to further Banny's loyalty to the U.B.N.V.A.
During his father's quest to battle The Clan and seize The Crumbs, which he didn't participate in, Banny made an uncredited cameo in the U.B.N.V.A.'s computer room sitting next to Bread Nelson.
After Bread Nelson condemned Nazi Mitch, Mitch sent out Banny to attack The Clan at Kerr Park. While there, Banny confronted Vin Diesel and Kick, who had The Crumbs. Banny denounced them for causing his father's death, which Vin casually joked about; he cared little for Savage considering he killed one of their own. John Bacchus arrives at the scene with several of his comrades, and Banny calls him a dirty cheater and a killer. As Bacchus pretends to cry, Rasputin arrives with Flynt Coal, who is possessed by the alien Tea-Eee. The Clan and Bacchus' Brotherhood battle Flynt, while Rasputin and Banny watch from the side.
During the ensuing conflict, Banny tries to intervene, but is struck down by Flynt. Vin takes the opportunity to tell Banny that they didn't kill his father, and that Nazi Mitch was responsible. Initially, Banny doesn't believe Vin, but Vin ultimately gains his trust. After Flynt claims The Crumbs and the spear, he runs off with Rasputin. Bacchus goes in pursuit with his team, but by this point he's lost their trust. The Clan, on the other hand, has found a new ally with Banny Passerini, who departs with Vin and Kick.
After Nazi Mitch harnesses The Crumbs's power, he teleports all his enemies from near and far to an overhangar, including Banny. While there, Banny is reunited with his father, who he long believed was dead. Nazi Mitch approaches the group and electrocutes them with lightning bolts. The Clan is helpless to resist, until Tyresius uses the power of The Crumbs against Mitch. Banny helps The Clan and the Bacchus Brotherhood as they unite against Mitch, turning The Crumbs's power against him - ultimately, Mitch is killed by the excessive power.
Unlike the other protagonists, Banny is never seen following the final battle, although it is confirmed he survived.
- Banny Passerini makes a brief cameo in Bread's Crumbs 2: Electric Boogaloo, as he sits next to Bread Nelson during his cameo in the U.B.N.V.A. computer room. At the time, Ryan Grier was not officially part of the series yet. A year later, he would be cast as a villain in Scrub Slam, although this wasn't planned during the second film's production - making his cameo a helpful coincidence.
