CP.BRAiN (株式会社シー・ピー・ブレイン) was a Japanese game development company headed by Tokuhiro Takemori (竹森得泰), formerly of Aicom. [1] (Game Machine 1992/3/15, p. 7)

The high score tables in Chimera Beast and 64th. Street (AC) suggest the "CP" in "CP.BRAiN" stands for "Crash Power," but this was apparently a joke. The actual meaning is not known. [2]
