Big Beard, also known as Plot Device, is a recurring character in the Bread's Crumbs Cinematic Universe, serving as a protagonist and a member of The Clan. Big Beard made his debut as a supporting character in Bread's Crumbs 2: Electric Boogaloo, and he later had a supporting role as an ally-turned-adversary in Bread's Crumbs 3: Scrub Slam, as he teamed up with the deranged John Bacchus.
Big Beard's origins remain vague, although he was allied with Lord Tyresius at some point, as they were obligated to defend The Crumbs at all times.
After The Clan fights against Biscuit Savage, they set off to Mekron Woods to obtain The Crumbs. Off-screen, they meet Lord Tyresius, protector of the artifact, and Big Beard, an ally of Tyresius. During this time, Flynt manages to find The Crumbs, but is attacked by Nazi Mitch, who steals the artifact. Nazi Mitch later has a false exchange with Biscuit Savage, pretending to give him the artifact but instead giving him one of the Fake Crumbs - a poisonous duplicate of the artifact.
With The Crumbs in the wrong hands, Big Beard and Lord Tyresius ally with The Clan. Along with John Bacchus, Flynt Coal, Vin Diesel and Reginald Wellington, Big Beard faces off against Biscuit Savage, but is ultimately unable to defeat him. Savage manages to defeat them and consumes the fake artifact to obtain its power, but it destroys his body, sending him to the Conundrum Dimension.
Big Beard departs with The Clan after the battle, and watches as Bacchus sets off to find the artifact on his own. He then witnesses Jumpa return to The Clan, confused over what has transpired.
Big Beard becomes a loyal member of The Clan between the events of the second and third films, maintaining his relationship with Lord Tyresius as they strive to take back The Crumbs from the U.B.N.V.A. and Nazi Mitch.
After Jumpa's failed raid on the U.B.N.V.A., Big Beard is very upset, knowing that he put their lives at risk with a poorly-developed plan of attack. During this time, Flynt meets with Bacchus, who has become obsessed with finding The Crumbs and claiming its power. He yearns to claim the artifact and find an ancient spear capable of harnessing its power. Flynt tells Big Beard, Vin and Kick of Bacchus' return. Big Beard, as well as Reginald, betray The Clan to join Bacchus' cause.
Big Beard stays out of the conflict that takes place at Mekron Woods and downtown. He later joins Bacchus, Reginald and Bjorn Alvarez as they confront Vin, Kick and Banny Passerini at Kerr Park. The confrontation turns chaotic when Rasputin arrives with Flynt, who is possessed by an alien parasite known as Tea-Eee. A fight breaks out as Flynt attacks The Clan and the Bacchus Brotherhood, with Flynt taking The Crumbs and the spear. By this point, Big Beard loses confidence in Bacchus, and abandons his cause.
When Nazi Mitch harnesses The Crumbs' power, he teleports all his enemies from near and far to an overhangar, including Big Beard. Mitch electrocutes them with lightning bolts, but Lord Tyresius uses the power of The Crumbs against Mitch. The Clan and the Bacchus Brotherhood unite against Mitch, turning The Crumbs's power against him - ultimately, Mitch is killed by the excessive power.
After the conflict, Big Beard meets with The Clan to discuss what should become of the organization now that The Crumbs is gone. Despite everyone agreeing that they should stay together, Jumpa chooses to disband the group.
