Let's see what you mongrels can do as a pack.

Dr. Nefarious Tropy (a.k.a. N. Tropy) is an alternate universe female counterpart to the main universe's Nefarious Tropy, appearing as one of the main antagonists in Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time alongside N. Tropy himself. It is stated that she comes from the same universe as Tawna's.

History

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time

Nefarious Tropy is first introduced as the new partner of her male counterpart, after Cortex's first defeat. Together, the pair plan to reset all the timelines and to create a new universe with themselves as gods. To achieve their plan, they force Nitros Oxide to transport them with his ship, but Tawna hijacks Oxide's hovercraft and chases after them alone.

Ultimately, Tawna is no match for both doctors, but she is saved by the arrival of Crash and Coco's party. Intrigued in their struggle, the two N. Tropys challenge their foes once again. With help from the Quantum Masks, the pair are defeated and are flung into a dimensional hole by Dingodile to prevent them from causing harm ever again.

Crash Bandicoot: On the Run!

She appeared as the main antagonist of the second season, Running Outta Time!, as well as a limited time boss for Crash or Coco to defeat. She attacks by sending mini tornadoes swirling down the path, by summoning a trio of Boom Berries hurtling towards the player and by sending a wave of energy towards the player character that must be jumped over, which sometimes carries Nitro Crates on top to be avoided. She occasionally generates a force-field around herself which must be hit with a Boom Berry to destroy it. Like all bosses, she is defeated by chasing her and throwing Boom Berries at her to reduce her health bar to zero, then using the Portal Weapons crafted beforehand to send her back to her own dimension.

Characteristics

Personality

N. Tropy is a sadistic and cruel person, (possibly even more so then her male counterpart) claiming to have forced her universe's Tawna to watch her kill Crash and Coco, and also muses about exterminating wild un-mutated bandicoots like pests and plucking legs off of spiders for fun. Her personality seems mainly similar to her male counterpart, if with a more elegant edge. She is shown however to genuinely care for her male counterpart.

Physical Appearance

This version of N. Tropy still has blue skin but a more angular, feminine face, more narrowed eyes with yellow pupils and black scleras. In terms of clothes, she has refashioned her helmet into a bonnet. Most of her armor is black with gold lining and all of her clocks are bright green. She wears an odd tentacle-like belt that loops around her neck as well as a long blue cape. The pistons on her back are golden, and the clock on her chest bears a strong resemblance to the one on male N. Tropy's original suit from Crash Bandicoot: Warped.

In On the Run!, her sleeves and pant legs are dark red instead of black. She also has two watches on her right and left arms instead of just her left.

"This version of Nefarious Tropy is even more sadistic and evil than the one Crash & Coco faced in earlier game entries, as in her universe, N. Tropy was able to kill both bandicoots siblings. In Season 2 of Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! it is time to face the time warping villainess again. Get ready to force her back into her own dimension!"

(Flirtatiously) You manage our affairs with such poise.

Though only briefly shown, it is clear that the two Doctors work well together as a team; however, their good chemistry borders on a comical level of flirting with themselves. They are even shown to hold hands above their boss level portal on the world map further indicating their companionship showing that they genuinely care for one another.

Tawna

The last time I killed her friends, her screams were exquisite.

In Tawna's universe, N. Tropy apparently killed that universe's Crash and Coco and forced Tawna to watch. Because of this, the two have a rough history and Tawna later takes it upon herself to fight both versions of N. Tropy herself.
