Mega-Mix, alternatively spelled as Megamix, and also known simply as Monster in The Huge Adventure, is the distorted result of an accidental merger between Dr. Neo Cortex, N. Gin, Tiny Tiger and Dingodile. He is the extra boss fight in Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure when all of the crystals, gems and relics are obtained. He was accidentally created when the Planetary Minimizer malfunctioned (courtesy of Crash) and fired a laser at the villains, causing them to combine and transform into the distorted form of Mega-Mix.
Mega-Mix appears as a playable racer as part of the Rustland Grand Prix in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. He is the reward for completing the Bronze Tier and is the only new racer to appear in the Grand Prix.
Mega-Mix is a combination of the left side of Dr. Neo Cortex's head, the right side of Dr. N. Gin's head (particularly the part covered in metal), Tiny Tiger's chest and arms, and Dingodile's legs and tail. His stomach appears to be crocodilian, another remnant from Dingodile. Mega-Mix also wears one of Tiny's shoulder pads on his right shoulder, but the one on his left is missing. In The Huge Adventure, Mega-Mix also wore Dingodile's swimming trunks from the same game.
In Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, Megamix's appearance has been slightly updated: while the overall division remains the same, some more repulsing details have been added, such as the warts on the left side of his head, visible veins on the right side, a metallic eye replacing N. Gin's, lengthened and unkempt facial hair, a beastlier lower jaw that's been pushed forwards, four bolts protruding from his back that surround a glowing, sickly green letter M, and bone-like spikes protruding from his right shoulder (with his shoulder pad being placed on his left shoulder instead). Megamix also has visible stripes on his arms, reflecting Tiny's thylacine self more, and also wears Dingodile's regular pants. He is also shown to twitch and spasm a lot, referencing his unnatural conception.
In Nitro-Fueled, Megamix is shown to retain all four personalities of Cortex, N. Gin, Tiny and Dingodile at the same time. Megamix often receives an internal electric shock as a result from the freak accident, which seemingly determines which of the four is in charge most until the next shock. Each of the four's vocal cords appear to be present as well, seamlessly flowing from one voice to the next as Megamix talks, with Cortex's voice being the most prominent.
After the transformation, Mega-Mix chased Crash through the dangerous space station until Crash reached the exit and escaped with a space motorcycle. Mega-Mix was "destroyed" when the space station exploded, separating the bodies from the villains. Mega-Mix is a playable character in Crash Bandicoot 2: N-Tranced in multiplayer mini games.

This was a horrible mistake.Mega-Mix losing, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled
- Mega-Mix is the only boss in the Crash Bandicoot series that is invincible (meaning he has no hit points, and therefore cannot be beaten).
- His victory animation in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled shifts between those of Cortex, N. Gin, Tiny and Dingodile, referencing how he is a fusion of those four characters.
- His losing animation in Nitro-Fueled shows him about to cry, but punches out his eye and puts it back into its socket.
- Mega-Mix's eye dropping and being reattached is cut in his losing animation with his Rustland skin however, as he is wearing a visor instead. This makes him the second character to have more than one losing animation, the first being Crash Bandicoot in his Reindeer skin.
