—Tag in ModNation Racers.

Tag is the main protagonist of the ModNation Racers series. He is an Elite Mod, and you race with him as the default character.

Tag can be customized in Mod Studio, and all cutscenes shown after the kick to Mod Studio that include Tag are rendered in real time. The currently selected Mod will take Tag's place in these cutscenes (except in the PSP version, in which the post-customization cutscenes no longer show Tag).

In Career ModeEdit

Tagger, as his name implies, is basically a graffiti artist, hence the name, Tag. Tag's favorite hobby is spray-painting objects, like his Kart. He also likes racing and is good at it, as shown in the Career (Though it actually depends on how good the player does in order for Tag to be good at it).

Tag is known to be a very creative person, and he motivates himself to race for fun rather than for 'prizes or fame unlike the other Elite Mods.

Tag 2

Tag in the first cutscene.

He has prior experience with racing before the MRC started, as shown in a video in the first cutscene, where he is shown racing on the track Alpine Drop.

Tag's Mother

Tag's Mother.

His mother owns a paint shop, and an old friend of her's, the Chief, directs him in races. The only exception to this is for the time where The Chief gets injured from an explosion and Uncle Richard coaches him (PS3 version only, in ModNation Racers for the PlayStation Portable The Chief is unable to speak for four races).

Uncle Richard

Richard Short.

His uncle, Richard Short works at Conservative Motors (a company featuring bland cars), and turns out to be the one who caused the Chief's accident, so Tag would sponsor him without any of The Chief's objections.

Jez, one of two female Elite Mods, seems to have a mischief chemistry with Tag (maybe a love/hate relationship), as in the Grand Tour, they're the only Elite Mods that interact with each other. Examples of this are Jez knocking Tag out of his starting spot in the Mt. Pain pre-race cutscene, and Tag bumping Jez at the rear in Breakwater as he waves to the crowd.


Tag wears red and black goggles on his head (on both sides says UFG), he has purple eyes and wears a grey shirt and pants with paint on them. He wears two rings on his fingers (one on his thumb on his left and one on his index on his right). He also wears lightning shoes. He has light yellow skin,a grafatti tattoo (on his right arm) and his teeth contains one sharp fang.

In the PSP Version, Tag's eyes are located slightly higher than in the other versions of the game.
