Character Description

Gex the Gecko is the main protagonist of the Gex series. He is addicted to television lives in Maui and is a secret agent. He is sent to defeat enemies, lead by the main antagonist, Rez. Gex became a millionaire after he inherited money from his dead Great-Uncle Charlie from Izod. He then purchased a mansion. In Gex: Enter the Gecko Gex was recruited by a Secret Government Agency to battle Rez and from then on he was a secret agent. Gex began his career as a secret agent in Gex: Enter the Gecko. Sometime between the 2nd and third game Gex became partnered with Agent Xtra battling TV terrorists. As an agent Gex built his secret lair the Gexcave underneath his Maui Mansion. He also employed Alfred to be his butler.

We know of four of his family members those being his father (not actually seen but opening cinematics on the first game tell that Gex's father and ten human volunteers were killed in an accident when their rocket blew up on the launch pad - fans think someone must've put a bomb on it), his mother (again we don't actually see her in the game but we know that after Gex's father died, she fired everybody in NASA and sold the rockets to "some third world countries"), Rex (he is seen in all the ganes and he is a red Tyrannosaurus Rex and is Gex's Jurassic ancestor, he is frozen in a large ice cube by Rez but Gex pushed him to a fire. Like Cuz, he is playable on the bonus missions, where you have to collect 50 coinflies and finally we have Cuz, Cuz as his name suggests, is Gex's cousin he wears a tiki shirt and is overweight but apart from that looks like Gex.

Colors & Costumes



  • Gex has also been voiced by comedians Leslie Phillips in Gex: Enter the Gecko, and Danny John-Jules in Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko for the UK and European releases of the game, giving Gex a more British accent than his American counterpart, who is voiced by Dana Gould.
  • Gex was fashioned on the characters of James Bond for Gex: Enter the Gecko, and on Austin Powers for Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko as can be seen on the cover artwork.
  • However, the Rumors section of Official Playstation Magazine and Nintendo Power spoke of Gex’s return on the PlayStation 2 and Gamecube sometime near the release of Crystal Dynamics Blood Omen 2. The exact month and issue number of the statement is not known at this time.
