Since retiring from the public's eye, I have resigned myself to a life of solitude. For two years, I started my day watching Kung-Fu Theater (US)/Supermarket Sweep (UK). Days, then weeks blurred into one long greasy telethon/sorry afternoon chat show. The next thing I know, some government goons show up at my place/house! It seems they've caught a whiff of old Mr. Sunshine himself: Rez! He's back in the Media Dimension and they think I'm crazy enough to go back in after him. So they whisk me away to Interrogation 101. They play rough, start giving me the business. I give out a little back. So, we negotiate a little something to cover my expenses. They throw in one of those secret agent suits and I tell them "We got a deal." Looks like I'm headed back into the Media Dimension. It's going to be Deja-Ouch all over again. - Gex - Intro
Two years after defeating Rez, Gex is still loving his TV, however Rez has returned and beginning to take over the Media Dimension yet again, two agents go to Gex's house and arrest him, they interrogate him and ask him to go after Rez, having had enough action and defeated Rez once already Gex refuses, one of the Agents slaps him, angering Gex, the Agents give Gex a suitcase-full of money and a tuxedo and Gex agrees to defeat Rez.
Gex collects many remotes in new areas of the Media Dimension, destroying the Tiki Brothers, Mooshoo Pork, and Mecharez, before he enters Rezopolis again and defeats Rez at Channel Z. Rez turns into a ball of light and floats away. He becomes trapped in a TV and tells Gex that he is his father (a reference to Star Wars), but Gex doesn't believe him and turns the TV off.

- This is the only game where defeated enemies do not turn into static on death.
- This is also the only game where Gex uses his tail against all bosses, including Rez (although for Rez this is optional). In Gex, he doesn't so much as attack Sun Snake, and in Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko, he uses a cannon on Brain of Oz and Acid Flies on Rez.
