The Death Tornado Spin power-up is received by defeating Dr. Nefarious Tropy, Crunch Bandicoot (with Py-Ro's assistance), Tiny Tiger, Fake Crash or Dr. Neo Cortex in Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex, Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure, Crash Bandicoot 2: N-Tranced, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, or Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time. After the foe falls in battle, the Death Tornado ability appears before his remains. With this extended spinning ability, Crash can spin a lot longer and faster, and can use it to glide over large gaps. In Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex, Crash can also use this technique when underwater, where he'll move much faster by continually spinning, and he can go through obstacles such as jellyfish without being harmed during the duration of the spin, and when hanging on monkey bars.
Akano, the mask of Dark Matter, represents this power-up in spirit, but it appears to be a more powerful version of the Death Tornado Spin due to the fact that Akano's version of this technique can destroy Locked Crates and the duration of the technique lasts longer than the previous incarnations of it.
