Tsunami (つなみ ちゅういほう lit. Warning: Tsunami (i.e. Tidal Wave) in Japanese) is the twelfth level and is the second level of the third warp room in Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex. It is the second Japanese-styled level in the game along with Banzai Bonsai. It takes place in a town during a thunderstorm in late afternoon. As its name suggests, the town is flooded by a tsunami.
It is the first and only level in the game (and the series, overall) that Coco uses her scooter.
小"丹"町 is written on the lanterns and seems to be a place name like "Little Dan Town." The character 町 (machi, i.e. town) is often used in Japanese place names and rarely used in Chinese.
This level is uncommon in that activating the Nitro Switch Crate before entering the secret path will make the secret path unbeatable, as Coco has to jump on boxes that have Nitro Crates under them to pass through the water area. However, in most levels of the entire series, activating the Nitro Switch Crate before entering the secret path makes it much easier (the most notable such level is probably Un-Bearable).
Although Wa-Wa has been defeated in the second Warp Room's boss fight, he still causes the tidal wave in this level.
The blue gem platform has the largest surface area of all the gem platforms in the entire franchise,
