Leaf Storm Zone is a zone in the Nintendo DS game Sonic Rush. It is the first zone for Sonic and second zone for Blaze. The zone follows a forest/jungle theme, and therefore it is a green, grassy zone that contains features to give it a forest feel to the level, such as swinging vines. This zone serves as an introduction to the game's controls and mechanics, and is considerably easier and more straightforward than the other zones in the game. It features large loops that cross over to both screens, as well as vine rails for Sonic to grind on. It also contains multiple iterations of the iconic corkscrew path first seen in Sonic 2's Emerald Hill Zone, including a grinding vine rail variant as well.
Notable in Act 2 of the zone is a giant wheel that chases the player down a steep slope during the final stretch of the level. Sonic/Blaze must run down the slope as quickly as possible to avoid being flattened and subsequently losing a life.
In Sonic Rush Adventure, there is a Hidden Island (#16, which has the Hidden Island theme) which is nearly identical to the first act of this zone.
