Lard Nar is the leader of the resistance against the Irken Empire, known as The Resisty. Although his only major appearance was in the season two premiere, "Backseat Drivers from Beyond the Stars", he was going to make another appearance in the cancelled episode "The Trial", and he was also scheduled to appear alongside the Resisty again in the unnamed series finale. It is likely he would've also made several other appearances leading up to that.


His primary concern is to keep The Resisty alive and fed before attempting a coup on the Irken Empire. He was the captain of a Vortian ship, until it entered "Shrinky Self-Destruct" mode, ejecting all crew members and detonating a then-significantly smaller ship. He seems to always listen to the alien named Spleenk, even though he is always full of bad ideas.

Lard Nar goes up against The Massive.

In his debut, after overhearing an Irken crew member exclaim that The Massive's weapons were deactivated, providing an opportunity to destroy the ship by breaking open the side snack pods, Lard Nar commands The Resisty to pursue the ship, which was drifting away under Zim's control.

Lard Nar and the rest of The Resisty crew make cameo appearances in "The Frycook What Came from All That Space", although they are scattered and only shown for a few brief seconds. He seems the most intelligent of the Resisty, which isn't saying much. In the cancelled episode "The Trial", Lard Nar would have been revealed to be the original designer of the Massive, and that he worked for the Irken Empire prior to Operation Impending Doom 1. In the series finale, "Invader Dib", there was a speculation that he would have been banished to Saturn along with the rest of the Resisty, Dib (who had joined forces with the Resisty), and the Meekrob after being accused of attempted genocide on the Irken species.

  • In a similar case to the Meekrob and Larb, Lard Nar's name is taken from a Thai dish, in this case a stir-fried wide rice noodle dish with meat and vegetables.
