He's two-tired from all this dashing around.

But he's also only a third of the man Kyle Katarn is.

If there's one thing I know about Star Wars EU stuff, it's that somewhere someone has written a detailed backstory of why Dash wears two-thirds of a tire, where the tire came from, and what happened to the other third.

And this backstory is sacrosanct, and must be strictly and explicitly adhered to in any future work referencing said character, or a mob of angry nerds will burn down the writer's house.

There's actually a documentary about Shadows of the Empire that reveals the true reason for Dash Rendar's tire:

Jon Knoles posted:

We had to give him some big hulky shoulder pads to hide the fact that, in those days, we didn't have smooth joints for characters. So you would see the arm penetrate into the body in weird ways. Effectively, every joint is like a capsule pushed into each other, and it looks really bad if you can't figure out a way to hide it. So that's where the shoulder pads came in.

It's so he can do cool forwards and backwards dives during shootouts without hurting his shoulders OP.

I think the real question is why isn't everyone else wearing two-thirds of a tire.

It has occurred to me recently that Finn appears to be wearing the Dash Rendar pants all throughout The Rise of Skywalker

[Link to a DeviantArt page because I can't find a better image source]

which is an amazing thing to notice because Finn is in that movie for about 2 minutes, tops.

It's literally because the N64 wasn't able to animate shoulder articulation without it looking freaky, so the tires hide that poo poo.

Dash Rendar was the lame, console version of Boba Fett. Apparently the devs wanted to do a Fett game, but Nintendo wanted an ~exclusive character~ so they came up with Dash instead.
