Out to flush the world clean and rebuild it as he remembers it, this stick-in-the-mud puddle is the elemental mask of Water.

The Wrath of Cortex instruction manual

Wa-Wa is the Elemental of Water, out to flush the world clean and rebuild it as he remembers it. He has a militaristic personality, and his powers include transforming Crunch's body into suspended water, and creating balls of ice. He can also bestow the ability to create energy waves. He is voiced by the late R. Lee Ermey in the English version and voiced by Kappei Yamaguchi in the Japanese version.


  • "Crash Bandicoot, you've got some nerve setting foot into my domain without an invitation. Don't talk back to me. I'll fix that attitude problem of yours!"
  • "Leave my levels alone!"
  • "They're gonna have to hang you out to dry when I get through with you!"
  • "Ah, get over here, you little orange sponge!"



  • Wa-Wa's name is based on how a young English speaking child would generally say Water.
  • Wa-Wa is the only one of the Elementals to break the fourth wall, as he will appear and tell the player to "leave his levels alone" after beating two of the levels in his Warp Room.
  • Wa-Wa's line, "I'll fix that attitude problem of yours!", is a reference to Meta Knight's line before the battle in Kirby Super Star and its remake, Kirby Super Star Ultra.
