Encyclopedia - N. Gin


Profile

  • Species: Human Cyborg
  • Gender: Male
  • Alignment: Evil

Description

A short, rotund man with red hair dressed in a lab coat. The right side of his head is covered with a metal plate with a missile lodged on top.N. Gin is Dr. Neo Cortex's right hand man. Once a world-renowned physicist within the Defense industry, N. Gin was taken in by Cortex after one of his missile projects went terribly wrong and hit him in the head. The missile was reconstructed as a life support system, and as a result, N. Gin became part machine. His rocket is still live, and it has a tendency to go off when he gets frustrated.

N. Gin has a great affinity for giant mechs, which he builds and uses against those who defy him. He is an indirect rival of Coco's — while they don't compete against each other, their mechanic and piloting skills are comparable.

Note: His name is sometimes misspelled as "N-Gin", with a dash instead of a dot.

Variations

In all of the Radical Entertainment games, he is portrayed as completely insane and has many awkward emotional problems. This version of N. Gin's loves the word 'doom', which is often included in his speech and became the basis for his explosive monkey army's name, the Doom Monkeys.

Trivia

According to Crash of the Titans (Nintendo DS), N. Gin is 1.25m tall and weighs 63kg.

The original design.


Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex

Voiced by: Corey Burton

The missile on N. Gin's head is black and a bit smaller, and it only has 2 checkered rows. The metal plate on the right side of his face now covers his cheek and lower lip, with visible bolts. His hair is brighter, his eyes are black, and his skin is paler and no longer rosed. The neck on N. Gin's lab coat is narrower and the holes on the front are golden. His voice doesn't sound robotic anymore.

Crash Nitro Kart

Voiced by: Quinton Flynn

N. Gin appears similar to his original design, but his right, robotic eye is now dark red, and he has less holes on his lab coat. The triangular collar is now merged with the rest of his lab coat. N. Gin has also gotten his robotic voice back.

Crash Twinsanity

Voiced by: Quinton Flynn

Another variation of the original design, this time N. Gin has his classic robotic eye back (albeit with a human iris), but his skin is now yellow and he is slightly less rotund. His lab coat now has bullets inserted into it instead of simple holes, and the collar is back to the way it used to be. The green parts on his missile are now white.

Like every other character in the game, he now has 5 fingers on each hand.

Crash Tag Team Racing

Voiced by: Nolan North

N. Gin has gone from a sickly yellow to a zombie gray, and his entire color scheme has become more monochromatic. His lab coat has stitches on the front, and he's back to having 4-fingered hands. His personality and voice also underwent a massive change, as he is now more obsessive, insecure, and maniacal, which is played for laughs.


Crash of the Titans, Mind Over Mutant

Voiced by: Nolan North

N. Gin's hair has become blue (and his skin slightly so), and his eyebrow is thicker and not permanently close to his eye. His nose has become metallic and his hands are larger. The bullets on his lab coat have been replaced with stitches. His insane personality is further accentuated.
