Cortex Vortex

The Cortex Vortex
Created byFirst version: Dr. Neo Cortex and Dr. Nitrus Brio, second version: Dr. Neo Cortex and Dr. N. Gin
GamesCrash Bandicoot (first version), Crash 2 (second version), WoC (third version?)


The Cortex Vortex was a machine to brainwash creatures mutated by the Evolv-O-Ray.

The original Cortex Vortex was located in Cortex's castle. It was developed by Cortex and Nitrus Brio. A creature had to be physically inserted into the machine for it to work. It failed - apparently on numerous occasions - to brainwash Crash and was presumably destroyed with the castle.

The second Cortex Vortex was built on Cortex's space station in the second game. This Vortex was created by Cortex and N. Gin. Unlike the original, this Vortex fired a ray to brainwash its victims. Cortex planned to use it to brainwash the inhabitants of Earth. To do this, he tricked Crash into collecting Crystals to power it. It was destroyed by the turncoat N. Brio's laser cannon.

It is not clear whether or not a third Cortex Vortex was constructed. The final level of Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex is named "Cortex Vortex". It appears to be set on a space station. Nothing with the design of the first two Vortices appears in the level.
