Dr. Cortex is the creator of Crash Bandicoot who he originally intended to be in his army of super animals. However, Crash is now Cortex's main foe.

Crash eventually made his way from N. Sanity Island back to Cortex Island after defeating many of Cortex's minions. Crash faced off against Cortex atop Cortex's Air Ship. After defeat, Cortex plummets down to the ground.
