WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for Bread's Crumbs 4.
The Bread's Crumbs Cinematic Universe is the fictional world and storyline created by Ryan Bowman and Scott Pincus that encompasses Bread's Crumbs and its various spin-offs and sequels. The spin-offs, also called "interquels", expanded the universe more, with many of them tying in with the main story by the installments in the next phase of the series. The series is known for its ensemble casts, assembling many of Scott's actors and bringing them together. The series aired from June 2014 to August 2017.
The first film was followed by three interquels - The Biggest Fish of Them All, Alias Odium, and Tea-Eee, which were released in 2014. The second phase of the cinematic universe began with the release of Bread's Crumbs 2: Electric Boogaloo in June 2015. In August, it was followed by two spin-offs; Jumpa X and The Conundrum Dimension, as well as Hit the Crib and Omega, which were released in March and April 2016.
The third installment, Bread's Crumbs 3: Scrub Slam, commenced phase three upon its release in June 2016. Though it was set to be the series finale, a fourth film was made a large possibility in December 2016 and confirmed in February 2017. A final interquel, The Two Man Trio, was released in May. Bread's Crumbs 4: Mass Consumption, the series' concluding entry, was released in August 2017.
The Clan was an organization created by Tom Boder, aka "Captain Jumpa", John Bacchus, Glen Tennis, and Vin Diesel, dedicated to the retrieval of powerful and ancient artifacts in order to keep them from getting into the wrong hands. In the first film, the group fought against Bread Nelson to claim The Crumbs, and everyone present at the battle was infected by a decoy artifact that drained them of their energy.
In the second film, Captain Jumpa is largely absent throughout and Glen Tennis is killed during an attack on The Clan by Biscuit Savage. Bacchus takes control of the group and they fight against their new adversary, up until Bacchus sets off on a solo mission to find The Crumbs.
In the third film, a rift forms in The Clan after a failed raid on the U.B.N.V.A. headquarters, as some are losing faith in Jumpa's leadership. Bacchus forms a rogue group, the Bacchus Brotherhood, to claim The Crumbs and unleash its power. Jumpa, Vin and several others stay loyal to The Clan, and battle the brotherhood. At the end of the film, The Clan reunites with the brotherhood to fight and destroy Nazi Mitch. Jumpa then disbands The Clan, and the team goes their separate ways.
In the fourth film, Bacchus reunites The Clan following the death of Jumpa, with the goal of remaking The Crumbs and preserving its powers. New and old allies reunite and formulate a plan to preserve the artifact, as a disgraced ally named The Paleman teams with The Creator of The Crumbs to battle The Clan. The team fights their new adversaries, but suffer many losses, as Paleman kills Colonel Crunch, Biscuit Savage and Rasputin, while Creator kills Big Beard, Lord Tyresius, Sandy and Reginald. In the final battle, Bacchus is killed by Paleman, but not before he remakes The Crumbs. With The Clan gone, Flynt and Kick agree to honor the team's legacy and guard The Crumbs for years to come.

Played by David M. The founder and leader of the U.B.N.V.A., Bread Nelson always sought to claim The Crumbs and destroy his arch adversaries, The Clan. He was the main villain of Bread's Crumbs, in which he fought and struck down many members of The Clan as he tried stealing The Crumbs. Unbeknownst to Nelson, he was handling a corruptive duplicate of the artifact. Nelson was ultimately defeated by The Clan, and went into hiding in the U.B.N.V.A. headquarters.
In Bread's Crumbs 2: Electric Boogaloo, Nelson would task Biscuit Savage and Nazi Mitch with stealing The Crumbs a year later. The two formed an alliance, but Mitch would betray Savage and take The Crumbs for himself. Nelson was pleased that Mitch claimed the artifact, but found they couldn't tap into its power without an ancient spear. Several months later, he tasked Bjorn Alvarez with killing John Bacchus, which the bounty hunter failed to do.
In Bread's Crumbs 3: Scrub Slam, after Rasputin stole The Crumbs from the headquarters, Nelson denounced Mitch for his poor operation of the U.B.N.V.A. headquarters. Mitch would later claim the artifact's power and become all-powerful, but was killed by The Clan. Nelson remained in hiding after his organization fell apart, and was ultimately killed by The Paleman, a devout supporter of Mitch, due to Nelson's abandonment of the latter.
Played by Mitchell Patterson. He is the main antagonist of The Biggest Fish of Them All, a supporting antagonist in the second film and the main antagonist of the third film.
Played by Brandon Archibald. A large, smart and intimidating adversary, Biscuit Savage was always obsessed with obtaining The Crumbs. He served as the main antagonist in Bread's Crumbs 2: Electric Boogaloo, and later a supporting protagonist in Bread's Crumbs 3: Scrub Slam. Savage also had a brief appearance via archival footage in The Conundrum Dimension.
Played by Ryan Bowman. He appears very briefly in the second film, but is confirmed to be an antagonist. Jumpa X later returns in his own solo film, Jumpa X, where he arrives in the future to kill Tea-Eee's former host, Dennis Palmer, and initiate a chain of apocalyptic events. Vin Diesel and Lord Tyresius manage to protect Palmer and defeat Jumpa X, but some time after they returned to the past, Jumpa X awoke, still in the future - where he could still continue his mission.
His current status is unknown, although judging by the after-credits scene of his solo film, which featured the Clan tearing itself apart and its members fighting each other (an event Vin and Tyresius were trying to prevent), it is implied that Jumpa X somehow fulfilled his mission.
Played by Michael Behrenshauser. He makes a brief appearance in the second film, and is confirmed to be a member of the U.B.N.V.A., although he turns down an offer to assist Biscuit Savage. Michael B has not expressed interest in returning to have a larger role in future films.
Played by Jacob Doerr. Similar to Jumpa X, he is an "infiltrator" cyborg meant to mimic the appearance of Justin Bartisto.
Played by Ryan Grier. He is a supporting character in the third film. Banny is the son of Biscuit Savage who, following his father's supposed demise at the hands of The Clan, seeked vengeance and The Crumbs.
Other Characters Edit
Played by Jacob Doerr. He is the protagonist of Alias Odium, a major character in Omega, and was planned to be in Inquisition as well as the second and third films, but Inquisition and the character was ultimately cut from the second and third films. Jacob D has expressed willingness to appear in future installments, but whether or not that will come to fruition is unconfirmed at this time. He is rumored to return for the fourth film - however, this remains unconfirmed as well.
Played by Dan Brusilovsky. He is a major character in the third film. Rasputin is a mysterious character, who slips into the U.B.N.V.A. headquarters during the Clan's raid of the facility and steals The Crumbs. Rasputin then toys around with everyone by sending them on a wild goose chase to claim the artifact, which Rasputin has no intention of using for power and instead uses it to hold himself higher than everyone else.
A parasitic alien that resembles a wig. It was the main antagonist of Tea-Eee and a supporting antagonist in Bread's Crumbs 3: Scrub Slam. Tea-Eee possesses people and uses their bodies as vessels to carry out various actions. In Tea-Eee, the alien possessed civilian Dennis Palmer, and used him to attack Captain Jumpa and Colonel Crunch. After Palmer was saved, Tea-Eee later returned in Scrub Slam, possessing Flynt Coal and allying with Rasputin.
Played by Gabe Sagherian. He is a major character in Tea-Eee and Jumpa X. Palmer was possessed by the alien Tea-Eee and used to attack Captain Jumpa and Colonel Crunch. After Crunch removed the alien from Palmer's head, Crunch and Jumpa pursued Tea-Eee, with Palmer defeating the alien.
Unbeknownst to Palmer, Tea-Eee survived, and in the distant future evil forces were seeking it. Jumpa would send Vin Diesel and Lord Tyresius to the future to protect Palmer and destroy Jumpa X. Palmer allied with Vin and Tyresius, and together they fought and disabled Jumpa X.
Played by Scott Pincus. He was a minor character in Jumpa X. An arms dealer, Brando assisted Jumpa X when he entered his weapons shack. However, after the cyborg grabbed various firearms, it turned on Brando and shot him to death.
He is set to return in the upcoming fourth film.
Played by Chris Lombardo. He was a minor character in Jumpa X. Paxton confronted Jumpa X when he arrived in the year 2019. He tried killing the cyborg, who demanded Paxton's clothes. Paxton complied, but Jumpa X shot him shortly after.

- Colonel Crunch, The Paleman, Justin Bartisto and Mahatma were all set to appear in the film, but did not due to scheduling conflicts with the actors that portrayed them. However, Colonel Crunch and Mahatma are both mentioned.
- Corporal Crunch and Sandy Sandler have cameos in the film, but their roles were set to be larger.
- Jumpa X was set to return in the film, but did not fit into the scenes that were shot due to time constraints. He was intended to appear during the opening battle in the U.B.N.V.A. headquarters.
- J-1000 (the antagonist of Omega), as well as Kosta Brando and Paxton (minor characters from Jumpa X) and Dennis Palmer (a main character in Tea-Eee and Jumpa X), were never expected to appear in the film and as such did not.
