U.B.N.V.A. (founder and leader)


Deceased - Killed by The Paleman

Bread Nelson was a recurring character in the Bread's Crumbs Cinematic Universe, serving as a supporting antagonist and the leader of the U.B.N.V.A.. He is portrayed by David Matz. A sly businessman, Nelson was obsessed over finding The Crumbs, an artifact of great power. He started his own organization, the U.B.N.V.A., to seek out the relic. However, over the years he was faced fierce opposition from The Clan, a team of treasure hunters.  

Nelson deployed many operatives to find The Crumbs, most notably Biscuit Savage and Nazi Mitch, and even faked his death for a time. After The Crumbs were stolen by a deceptive Russian, Nelson fired Mitch, who went onto gain the artifact's power and become unstoppable. After Mitch was killed, Nelson hid out in the basement of his headquarters, which had been taken over by The Clan. A supporter of Nazi Mitch, The Paleman, brutally murdered Nelson in retaliation for firing Mitch. 


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

Bread's CrumbsEdit

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". 

Between FilmsEdit

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. 

Bread's Crumbs 2: Electric BoogalooEdit

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. 

The Conundrum DimensionEdit

Nelson does not physically appear in the film; archival audio is used for his role. 

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. 

Bread's Crumbs 3: Scrub SlamEdit

Nelson makes a brief cameo in the film; most of his role is heard via archival audio. 

After The Clan raided the U.B.N.V.A. headquarters, Bread Nelson was led to believe that they had stolen The Crumbs when it was actually Rasputin.

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 reluctantly revealed that The Clan raided the base and took The Crumbs. Nelson is speechless at first, and doesn't believe Mitch, who explains that some "Communist nobody" took the artifact. Despite this, Nelson sats that their chances of winning have decereased by a factor of ten. Mitch claims they're not fighting a war, and he lashes out at Nelson, saying Nelson abandoned him and left Mitch to manage his entire organization. Nelson asks for Mitch's trust, but he says he's wasted his time trusting him, and will prove Nelson's incompetence once he finds the artifact. Nelson is indifferent towards Mitch, proclaiming he's a proud American while Mitch is an adulterer and a "simple farmer". Nelson orders Mitch to leave, firing him from the U.B.N.V.A. for his failed deeds. 

Mitch, however, sets up a meeting with Rasputin and takes The Crumbs and the spear from him. 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. Before The Clan split, Bacchus wondered what happened to Nelson, with Rasputin saying he's still out there somewhere. Biscuit Savage says that after he, Rasputin and Bread Nelson posed great obstacles to The Clan, Nazi Mitch turned out to be the ultimate adversary. 

Bread's Crumbs 4: Mass ConsumptionEdit


Bread Nelson's death poster.

Nelson does not physically appear in the film; he is seen via the poster on the right. 

Two months before the events of Bread's Crumbs 4, Nelson was found dead in the basement of the U.B.N.V.A. headquarters, which was now occupied by The Clan. He had been stabbed to death with a jagged sword - one wielded by his old associate, The Paleman.

A devout supporter of Nazi Mitch, Paleman was infuriated over Nelson's poor leadership and disownment of Mitch. Seeking revenge against his old enemies, Paleman set off to murder Bread Nelson. A poster acknowledging his demise was seen being read by Flynt Coal in the U.B.N.V.A.'s cafeteria. 


  • Despite only making a cameo in the third film via archival audio, Nelson has more lines in that film than he did in the rest of the series.
