Doctor Nefarious Tropy, referred to as N. Tropy for short, is the self-proclaimed "master of time", an acquaintance of the evil Uka Uka whom debuted in Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped as one of the game's main antagonists. He was revealed to be the creator of the Time Twister, a machine that grants its user the ability to travel to various points in time, both past and future, allowing him, Doctor Neo Cortex and Uka Uka to collect the Power Crystals in order to achieve world domination. Following the events of Warped, throughout which he was defeated by Crash Bandicoot, N. Tropy re-appears multiple times throughout the franchise, being a minor side-villain in Wrath of Cortex, the main antagonist of N. Tranced, a boss and side-villain in Twinsanity, as well as a playable racer in Crash Team Racing, Crash Nitro Kart, and the former's Nitro-Fueled remake.

Tranced), likely High Multiverse level+ (Portrayed as at least equal to N. Trance, and fought Crash after he had defeated him. His aforementioned statement should also fall under this tier, as the 5th Dimension is implied to a be a part of space-time, rather than something transcendent to it, as indicated by the use of the following quote: "In his travels through space and time, N. Tropy came across a 5th dimensional being who is a master of hypnotism--the diabolical N. Trance!". Keyword: through, which makes N. Tropy's ability to harness the powers of space and time likely High 2-A, rather than just 2-C) | Multiverse level+ (Can one-shot Crash much like he can in Warped)
