Bread Nelson is a recurring character in the Bread's Crumbs Cinematic Universe, serving as a supporting antagonist and the leader of the United Bread Nelson Villains Association. Nelson made his debut as the main villain in Bread's Crumbs. He later had a cameo in Bread's Crumbs 2: Electric Boogaloo, and a supporting role in Bread's Crumbs 3: Scrub Slam, in which he had a rude phone call with Nazi Mitch. Nelson was portrayed by David M.
At some point in time, Bread Nelson found out about The Crumbs, an ancient artifact that wields unspeakable power. Nelson became so obsessed over the artifact that he dedicated his life to finding out more about it. To claim The Crumbs and make a name for himself, Bread Nelson founded a criminal organization - the United Bread Nelson Villains Association, or the U.B.N.V.A. for short. Nelson was the head of the organization for several years, and was allied with villains such as Biscuit Savage, Nazi Mitch, Bjorn Alvarez and The Paleman. The U.B.N.V.A. was dedicated to seeking out The Crumbs, as well as fighting The Clan.
For a time, The Clan believed that The Crumbs were held in the Tomb of the Bacchus, and as such they guarded the ancient area. However, to protect the artifact, The Clan was lied to about its location. Instead of The Crumbs being in the tomb, a duplicate version of the artifact, dubbed "Fake Crumbs", were stored away. Nelson eventually realized this and one day, stole the artifact from the tomb. The Clan would arrive shortly after and find that the artifact was gone. As Glen Tennis set off to get reinforcements, Captain Jumpa and Colonel Crunch searched through the area before Bread Nelson arrived.
Nelson had retrieved the Fake Crumbs - a corruptive object with dangerous energies that could poison someone. Believing Nelson had the real artifact, The Clan immediately fought Nelson, who struck down John Bacchus and Colonel Crunch. Jumpa, along with Vin Diesel and Flynt Coal, proceeded to attack Nelson. Flynt and Vin were eventually struck down before Glen Tennis strangled Nelson and seized the Fake Crumbs. As Nelson lay on the ground unconscious, Glen, weakened, handed the "artifact" over to Jumpa, who threw it back in the tomb. With the Fake Crumbs gone, The Clan was rejuvenated, along with Nelson. The Clan apprehended Nelson, with Colonel Crunch and his clone guarding him. Crunch told Nelson that he's stuck with him and his clone forever, to which Nelson bellowed, "that would be correct".
Nelson's actions after the events of the first film are largely ambiguous. It would seem that he was taken into custody by The Clan, but in actuality he escaped. However, John Bacchus would later remark that Nelson was deceased - implying that The Clan had either tried to kill Nelson, or he faked his death. Nevertheless, Nelson survived, continuing to lead his organization while also remaining out of the public eye.
Biscuit Savage, a fearsome member of the U.B.N.V.A., would ally with Nazi Mitch in an effort to destroy The Clan and claim The Crumbs. Nelson likely helped them in planning their mission.
As Biscuit Savage waited for Jumpa X to travel to the future, Bread Nelson was seen working in his headquarters with several members of the U.B.N.V.A., including Banny Passerini, Biscuit Savage's son. By the end of the film, Mitch would betray Savage and force him into the Conundrum Dimension.
Hearing that John Bacchus had set off on a solo mission to claim The Crumbs, Nelson ordered bounty hunter and U.B.N.V.A. member Bjorn Alvarez to hunt down and kill Bacchus. Bjorn demanded that Nelson pay him a decent amount of money for the mission, which greatly upset Nelson.
After The Clan raided the U.B.N.V.A. headquarters, Bread Nelson was led to believe that they had stolen The Crumbs. However, it was Rasputin, a deceptive Russian who seized the artifact and sought to keep it from everyone else. While eating lunch in the U.B.N.V.A. cafeteria, Nelson called Nazi Mitch, wishing to know what happened during The Clan's attack.
Mitch greeted Nelson over the phone, remarking that it's been a while, to which Nelson stated that Mitch seems distraught. Mitch reluctantly revealed that The Clan had raided the headquarters and taken The Crumbs. Nelson was speechless at first; displeased with Mitch's statement, he told him to "try it again". Mitch tried repeating his statement, to which Nelson ordered him to tell the truth. Mitch tried lying, stating that he'd spoken the truth, but Nelson that he's entitled to answers. Mitch explained that some "Communist nobody" took the artifact, but he can't unleash the artifact's power. Despite this, Nelson said that their chances of winning had decreased by a factor of ten. Mitch said that they're not fighting a war, and he lashed out at Nelson, saying that he abandoned him and left Mitch to manage his entire organization.
Nelson asked Mitch to trust him, but Mitch said that he'd trusted Nelson long enough, and will prove Nelson's incompetence once he finds the artifact. Nelson, however, is indifferent towards Mitch's feelings of him. He calls himself a proud American, and says Mitch is an adulterer and a "simple farmer". Nelson then orders Mitch to leave; instead of leaving the headquarters, Mitch set up a meeting with Rasputin, who had The Crumbs and the spear needed to unleash its power. Mitch took both artifacts from Rasputin and unleashed The Crumbs's power. The Clan would ally with the Bacchus Brotherhood to defeat Nazi Mitch, who failed to prove his worth to Bread Nelson.
After Mitch's demise, many U.B.N.V.A. employees left the organization's headquarters, abandoning Bread Nelson. At the end of the film, Bacchus wondered whatever happened to Nelson, with Rasputin remarking that he's still out there somewhere. Biscuit Savage acknowledges the fact that after he, Rasputin and Bread Nelson posed great obstacles to The Clan, Nazi Mitch turned out to be the ultimate adversary.
