Billy Crash was the fight trainer at the plantation known as Candyland, where he trained male slaves for death matches. He was also the right hand man of Calvin Candie and a feared outlaw.
Nothing much is known about Billy other than he is associated with Calvin Candie and trains Mandingo fighters. Billy is shown to be resentful and cruel towards everyone mainly Django, the protagonist, and enjoys taunting him along with his friends. After Calvin's death, and the subsequent Candyland shootout, Billy held his gun to Broomhilda's head and forced Django to surrender. He took pleasure in torturing the captured Django and attempted to castrate him until Stephen stopped him, telling Billy that Django will be transferred to LeQuient-Dickey Mining Facility, a place where slaves mine until they die.
Soon after Django's escape and Calvin's funeral, Stephen, Lara, Sheba (Calvin's slave mistress), Cora, Billy and few other men head back to Candyland. Django surprised them in Candie's house and as the bodyguards tried to arm themselves, Django quickly dispatched them and wounded Billy in the process. While he is thrashing around on the ground in pain, Django taunts him for the earlier castration attempt and shoots Billy in the crotch. Billy Crash screams in pain and curses Django, mispronouncing his name "Duh-Jang-Go", to which the Bounty Hunter corrects, "The D is silent, hillbilly.", and finishes him off with a shot to the chest.
- Much of Crash's storyline was at first Ace Woody's, though after Kevin Costner, and his replacement Kurt Russell departed the film, Woody's role was merged with Crash.
- It is subtly implied that Crash might be homosexual. And it goes without saying that he is also a racist.
