Doctor Neo Periwinkle Cortex, often referred to as "Doctor Cortex" or simply "Cortex", is a video game character and the main antagonist of the Crash Bandicoot series of video games. His name is a play on the term neocortex, an area of the brain. In the series, Cortex is depicted as a mad scientist who seeks to achieve world domination as an act of vengeance for the ridicule he has suffered in the past. Hoping to achieve this by mutating the local animals into his soldiers, he eventually creates Crash Bandicoot, the titular character of the series, but soon rejects him as unworthy of being in his army and removes him from his castle. As Cortex's actions endanger the sanctity of the islands the games are set in, Cortex's plans for world domination are often hampered by Crash along with other characters. Crash's constant interference has made eliminating Crash one of Cortex's top priorities along with world domination.
Cortex was created by Andy Gavin and Jason Rubin, and was originally designed by Charles Zembillas. Named after the term "neocortex" and originally envisioned as a "madman", Cortex would be depicted later in the series as "master evil with a bit of a childish feminine side that leaks out in his tirades". Critical reception of Cortex has been mostly positive, with much of the praise going to his portrayal in Crash Twinsanity. The character's reception before and after the game, however, has been mixed.
Cortex was originally designed by Charles Zembillas, who envisioned him "as a madman... literally." Cortex's name is a play on the term "neocortex", a section of the brain. He was named quickly and designed from the name rather than vice versa, a pattern that the other "Doctor" characters would follow. Crash co-creator Jason Rubin cited Cortex as one of his favorite Crash characters alongside Ripper Roo and Crash himself. Designer Charles Zembillas stated that Cortex had the potential to be the funniest character to draw.
Cortex is voiced by Brendan O'Brien in the first Crash Bandicoot game, by Clancy Brown (who also voiced the corrupt Baron Praxis in another Naughty Dog game Jak II) from Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back up to Crash Nitro Kart and by Lex Lang from Crash Twinsanity onwards. In the Japanese versions of the games, he is voiced by Shōzō Iizuka up to Crash Tag Team Racing and by Yōsuke Akimoto in Crash Boom Bang!. In a flashback to Cortex's childhood in Crash Twinsanity, he is voiced by Debi Derryberry in the English version of the game and by Noriko Suzuki in the Japanese version.
