The Vortex is a temporary power used on several occasions by Rayman in Rayman 3 and is provided by the green cans of Laser-Washing Powder. When Rayman acquires this power, the symbol of his chest turns yellow, his hair, torso, shoes and a great part of his gloves turn green, and the base of his shoes, hood and fingers turn red. With this power Rayman gets a pair of special gloves with red and yellow spiral symbols to that allow rayman to throw small tornadoes that can shrink his opponentsand lower the Meadowscrew. Using the power of the Vortex is the only way to make Hoodbooms fall when they're standing on stitls. It lasts 25 seconds. The Vortex is the very first can of laser-washing powder that rayman finds in the game, and it's effect is the second which effect is most enduring compared to the Lockjaw.
