->''Winds, guard me!''
-->--'''[[ThatOneBoss/KingdomHearts Xaldin]]''', ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''

This is another part of the ElementalPowers, mainly dealing with wind or air. It doesn't always mean RazorWind, but includes the power to manipulate winds, such as ''literally'' blowing the enemy away, [[TornadoMove creating tornadoes]], or [[NotQuiteFlight used as a free]] {{Flight}} [[NotQuiteFlight power]]. Any character who uses this is almost guaranteed to land in the role of a FragileSpeedster. Sometimes, this power is a natural extension for those with SuperSpeed, usually running around in circles very quickly to create a tornado. Combined with [[DishingOutDirt earth]], it can create a sandstorm; with [[MakingASplash water]], it can form a mist; and with [[PlayingWithFire fire]], comes [[ShockAndAwe lightning]].

May overlap with (or be the in-universe justification of) [[MakeMeWannaShout sound powers]] and [[MusicalAssassin deadly music]]. Often [[WindIsGreen green]]. WindFromBeneathMyWings is a {{Subtrope}}. SuperBreath is another {{stock superpower|s}} that can produce similar effects. In a FourTemperamentEnsemble, expect this character to be Sanguine.

Also, compare EverythingsBetterWithSpinning.

Not to be confused with BlownAcrossTheRoom.

!!Examples
[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* ''Anime/MazingerZ'' has the Rust Hurricane attack, where the robot blows a wind charged with corrosive particles disintegrate the enemy. ''GreatMazinger'' has the Great Typhoon, where the robot generates an incredibly strong wind, and ''Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}'' has the Rust Tornado, an UpToEleven combination of both attacks.
* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', there's Temari and a good percentage of the rest of the Hidden Sand Village, as well as Asuma, Naruto himself, and Danzo from the Hidden Leaf, though they all focus more on the RazorWind aspect.
** There ''are'' more concussive wind jutsus as well, like Orochimaru and Gaara's Great Breakthrough or Kakuzu's Pressure Damage. The Tailed Beasts are capable of leveling towns and causing all sorts of natural disasters just by roaring.
** Might Guy's ultimate attack, the Daytime Tiger, involves him [[ItRunsOnNonsensoleum punching the air so hard that it turns into a tiger]]. Unlike the other techniques mentioned above, it's not powered by [[LifeEnergy chakra]].
** In ''Anime/NinjaClashInTheLandOfSnow'', Princess Fun, the character played by film actress Yukie Fujikaze in-universe, uses wind powers against her enemies.
* [[MeaningfulName Fuu Hououji]], MagicKnight of Wind from ''MagicKnightRayearth''.
* [[MeaningfulName Fuuko Kirisawa]] from ''FlameOfRecca'', using the wind Madogu Fuujin.
* Fuusuke of ''{{Ninku}}'' is the captain of all wind-using ninja despite only being 12.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'''
** The BigBad of the [[{{Filler}} Bount arc]] had wind-based powers, up to and including a ''[[ThisIsADrill wind drill sword]]''.
** Kensei from the Vizard possesses a wind-element zanpakutou. His release command is "Futtobase", or "Blow it away"
** Senna from ''Bleach: Memories of Nobody'' has a wind type Zanpakuto named Mirokumaru which can control wind and create tornados. She even [[NotQuiteFlight rides]] on top of a tornado at one point.
** In his Resurrección form, Privaron Espada 103, Dordonii Alessandro Del Socacchio, can release tornadoes/cyclones from his legs.
** When Soifon activates Shunko against Yoruichi, she creates gusts of wind around herself to fight. [[spoiler: When she fights [=BG9=] she confirms that her Shunko form is Wind which allows her to create reiatsu tornadoes around her body.]]
* ''{{Yaiba}}'''s BigBad, Onimaru, wields the power of the Fujin Katana, which allows him to use tornadoes, RazorWind, and mighty gusts of wind. Later, [[TheHero Yaiba]] himself gain this power.
* The Windy card of ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura''. [[FirstInstallmentWins By virtue of being the first card introduced]] and a powerful one to boot, it is essentially her signature card.
* Phoenix Ikki from ''SaintSeiya'' can create small tornadoes...on fire.
** His brother, Andromeda Shun, has more traditional wind powers, but he mostly uses his trusty chains in battle.
* Haruka, aka Sailor Uranus of ''Manga/SailorMoon'', though, since her attack is named "World Shaking", a lot of people mistake her powers for earth.
** According to [[WordOfGod the artbooks]], so can Sailor Jupiter: she can create hurricanes and cyclones in the manga.
* Limdo/Uruki from ''FushigiYugi: Genbu Kaiden'' is known as the "Merciless Wind Slasher". [[RazorWind Guess what his signature power is.]] However, don't piss him off: after [[spoiler:suffering a HeroicBSOD when his bodyguard and lifelong companion Soren died in a HeroicSacrifice, he ''turns himself into a friggin' tornado'']].
* Technically, anyone with any skill in ''Manga/AirGear'' since all power is based on wind, but mainly Ikki, Ringo, Agito, and [[spoiler:Sora and Nike, after the former's HeelFaceTurn]].
* Jin of ''YuYuHakusho''.
* ''Anime/{{Daimos}}'' has the attack 'Double Blizzard'. [[GratuitousEnglish Despite the name]], it's a pair of tornadoes, not a pair of freezing blizzards.
* ''Anime/CombattlerV'''s Super Electro Magnetic Whirlwind.
* Midori Sugiura's CHILD Gakutenou in the ''Anime/MaiHiME'' anime (and Akane's in the manga).
* Cologne in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' teaches Ranma the Hiryu Shoten Ha (aka the Heaven Blast of the Dragon), a technique where a heated battle aura and an icy unemotional battle aura collide to produce a whirlwind.
* Hayate from ''{{Pretear}}'', the Leafe Knight of Wind.
* To some degree, Koushirou Chikuma from ''Manga/{{Basilisk}}''.
* DarkActionGirl Kagura from ''InuYasha''. So very much RazorWind.
** Not to mention the titular character's Wind Scar.
* Seiichirou Aoki and Daisuke Saiki from ''Manga/{{X1999}}''
* Negi of ''MahouSenseiNegima'' originally specialized in wind-based spells, though, more recently, he seemed to prefer [[ShockAndAwe lightning]].
* Erigor from ''Manga/FairyTail'' can create a wall of wind that can trap enemies and even make an armor out of the wind.
** Also, Wendy, who is the adopted daughter of the Sky Dragon, and therefore the Sky Dragon Slayer. She doesn't start out with many offensive abilities, but the ones she has (and gains over the series) fit this pretty well. Even her most common buff-spell makes sense for Wind-based powers: it makes those she targets move a lot faster, and they even float a bit when she first casts it.
* Belldandy in ''Manga/AhMyGoddess''.
* Girouette (or Juliet, as spelled in Del Rey translation) from ''SugarSugarRune''.
* ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' has the spell Barrel Shot, which fires a burst of pressurized air at the target that deals no damage, but paralyzes them as a prelude for [[WaveMotionGun Excelion Buster]].
** In ''VideoGame/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAsPortable: The Battle of Aces'', Shamal is revealed to use mostly wind spells if she's ever forced to go on the offensive, creating wind barriers and tornadoes of various sizes.
* This forms a major point in ''WindyTales''.
* Kazuma Yagami from ''LightNovel/KazeNoStigma'' is an incredibly powerful wind mage, partially (but not entirely) because he's one of the legendary Contractors who's formed a pact with the elemental god of wind. To put that in perspective, the members of the Kannagi Clan, including his cousin, Ayano Kannagi, are highly skilled users of [[PlayingWithFire fire magic]] because their distant ''ancestor'' was a Contractor with the elemental god of fire.
* The Ougi clan, and especially it's successor, Ougi Shichirou, from ''{{Kekkaishi}}'': {{Flight}} - check, RazorWind - check, creating giant tornadoes - check, and once, he reduced a small shrine to dust in an instant using his wind powers.
* Franky from ''Manga/OnePiece'', who can use his Cyborg enhancements to fire wind with the force of a cannonball.
** It is speculated by fans that Dragon has an ability connected with controlling wind or weather. When he rescues Luffy in Loguetown he is accompanied by a strong storm that saves Luffy from Buggy and helps Straw Hats escape. [[spoiler: Wind blows away flames, opening a path to his ship for survivors from the Gray Terminal as well.]]
*** It should be noted that in the second case, the wind might be from Ivankov, judging by the shape of the blast. He is also a user of this trope, creating strong blasts of wind by ''winking.''
* Manga/HayateTheCombatButler's 'ultimate' attack doesn't quite fit this trope, but it creates a gust of wind below him (those with skirts be warned) to propel him into the air for a powered punch.
* Tabitha [[spoiler:(or better said, Princess Charlotte Heléne de Orléans)]] from ''LightNovel/ZeroNoTsukaima''.
* One of the lewd Blue Gaurdians from ''RaveMaster''. PowerPerversionPotential ensues.
* [[HadesProjectZeorymer Lanster of the Wind.]]
* Takeda Shingen of ''SengokuBasara'' is so strong, a strong enough swing from his big freaking ax has enough force to summon a giant, mook-destroying tornado on the battlefield.
* Vento of the Front in ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' has the power over wind (enough to knock over buildings) among God's Right Seat, and her ability, God's Divine Punishment, deprives anyone who is hostile towards her of oxygen.
** When [[IJustWantToBeSpecial Saten]] briefly becomes an esper in ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun'', her ability turns out to have something to do with air manipulation, demonstrated by her spinning some leaves above her palm in a miniature cyclone.
** Also, Kongo's "Aerohand" ability causes whatever she touches to be violently propelled away by a rocket thruster-like gust of wind. And we're not talking about small fry; [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome her first on-screen use of it involves lobbing a truck at two helicopters, nailing both]]. The rest of the battle she spends running around, throwing mooks in PoweredArmor like ragdolls. Though it was kinda foreshadowed by her constantly playing around with a fan. [[spoiler:When she ''really'' pushes herself, she can launch things into outer space!]]
** Ouma Yamisaka wields a magic crossbow that gives him wind powers. He can use wind to launch himself through the air or create gusts that can demolish small buildings.
** Accelerator can control winds due to his ability to control any vector.
** Saiai Kinuhata can control nitrogen. Since nitrogen makes up about 70% of the atmosphere, she can generate air currents by controlling the nitrogen.
* ''LightNovel/{{Inukami}}'': Kaoru's specialty is wind magic. Though, oddly, he invokes the "White Mountain God" to do it.
* Wind is Cure March's personal element in ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure''. Considering her theme color, it also doubles as WindIsGreen.
* In ''Manga/ArataKangatari'', this is the primary element of Kugura's Hayagami, which is usually used to aid in his flight.
* Lisa from ''Manga/PopcornAvatar'', as incarnation of the Deva of Wind Vayu, gives Kurando access to wind-based attacks and wind-based {{Flight}}.
* [[WeHardlyKnewYe Hyui]] of the Wind in ''FistOfTheNorthStar''. His comrades are Sea, Mountain, Fire and Clouds.
* Otohiko from ''Manga/KamisamaKiss'' is a wind god, three guesses what his powers consist of.
* Kazehana from ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:ComicBooks]]
* ComicBook/{{Storm}} from ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' uses wind powers, among her other weather-related abilities; usually, though, just to fly.
** Also, student Sofía Mantega (formerly Wind Dancer) had this power, before M-day. Among other things, she had the peculiar ability to use the wind to "carry the words" from far away, to better overhear conversations.
* Windfall, one of the Masters of Disaster in Franchise/TheDCU.
* Whirlwind, a Creator/MarvelComics supervillain.
* [[Comicbook/{{Fables}} Bigby Wolf]] mainly uses this power to huff and puff but can also calm the winds if he tries. His father, the North Wind, has a much higher level of power.
* ComicBook/RedTornado of the Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica mainly uses tornado-like gusts, but can do virtually anything with wind.
* Typhon from ComicBook/TheIncredibleHercules is capable of causing Wind-related natural disasters like Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Typhoons, etc.
* [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]] can project whirlwinds from his hammer, summon them naturally, or generate them with his cape. He can use these whirlwinds to carry people safely or shield them from harm.
* Hay Lin from ''ComicBook/{{WITCH}}'' has this power, manifesting in high pressure wind, air bubbles to breath under water, and lifting heavy objects or even people, and, as a side effect, being the only Guardian with the ability of flight until the New Power arc (the power-up of that arc grants all Guardians the ability to fly, but Hay Lin is noted to be both faster and higher-flying). By the New Power arc, her powers over air are so great she easily ''imprisoned a tornado in a box small enough to stay in a pocket''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fanfiction]]
* In Fanfic/KeepersOfTheElements, Lindsay has this as her Element.
* [[SixthRanger Macroburst]] and [[PteroSoarer Terror]][[WindFromBeneathMyWings dactyl]] in ''Fanfic/RiseOfTheGaleforces.''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* Storm in the ''Film/{{X-Men}}'' series.
** Also Riptide in ''Film/XMenFirstClass''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:{{Literature}}]]
* ''TheWheelOfTime'' generally averts this even though it has an elemental system, as Air is generally used for telekinesis-like effects instead of wind effects.
* In ''Literature/CodexAlera'', everyone bonds with one or more "furies" of an element, one of which is wind. Wind furies grant {{flight}} and [[BulletTime speed]] to powerful crafters, but don't work well in enclosed or underground spaces, and [[WeaksauceWeakness salt hurts them]]. A Knight Aeris without any significant furycrafting besides wind (such as [[ActionGirl Amara]]) also falls straight into FragileSpeedster territory. Windcrafting is also extremely useful for spying, too, as a windcrafter can cause the air to bend light to generate impromptu telescopes or to conceal people or objects, or to generate fields to hush out noise. In one extreme case, a team of Knights Aeris actually used their ability to bend light to [[spoiler: create a giant magnifying glass that focused sunlight into an impromptu DeathRay that swept an entire bridge clean of invading [[WolfMan Canim]].]]
* [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Harry Dresden]] uses wind magic almost as often as fire magic, maybe even more often but to less destructive effect- except in the case of the napalm firing Renfields in ''Blood Rites''.
** Elaine, in what is almost certainly a ShoutOut to ''TheMightyThor'', twirls one of her foci, a chain, to summon a powerful whirlwind.
** Harry does the same (with his staff) one book before, creating a tornado that picks up the debris of a battle and promptly slices/pulps a lot of very powerful creatures.
* In Alexander Pope's ''TheRapeOfTheLock'', as part of their PersonalityPowers, coquettes turn into airy sylphs upon death. They also have the ability to manipulate air — but not to any great effect, as Belinda barely notices the ''faint breeze'' on her neck that is the top sylph [[TraumaticHaircut trying to warn her that Doom is Nigh]].
* In ''KingdomKeepers'', [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent]] gets this added to her bag of tricks, though she uses it as a scare tactic more than anything.
* The titular ''WindWitch'' of Susan Dexter's Valadan series had this power. At the climax of the book she calls up a hurricane which completely destroys the sea raiders that had been threatening them.
* In Creator/RobertEHoward's ''Literature/ConanTheBarbarian'' story "Literature/TheScarletCitadel", Pelias explains that he is calling on air spirits to form Conan's transport.
* The fifth and last introduced main character from Creator/AnthonyHorowitz's ''ThePowerOfFive'' series, Scarlett, has powers over the weather, including the wind. This first manifests itself when she unconsciously brings down an awesomely powerful hurricane onto the Necropolis and, with concentration, is able to lead her friends through it unscathed.
* In DevonMonk's ''[[Literature/AgeOfSteam Dead Iron]]'', Cedar's arrival at the mine is announced by dust devils that form without any wind.
* Trisana Chandler in TamoraPierce's ''Literature/CircleOfMagic'' quartets has the ability to control weather, including earthquakes, heat, lightning, and wind. When traveling to a hot country, she used her breezes to pick up rumors, cool herself, lift herself to the top of a tower, block somebody's path, etc.
* In ''ShadowOps'', aeromancy is one of the "legal" elemental schools of magic. The school not only allows for control of wind and flight, but it also allows the aeromancer to [[ShockAndAwe generate lighting]] and control storms.
* Air Masters/mages in the ''Literature/ElementalMasters'' series by Creator/MercedesLackey, the main ones being Nigel Barrett (''Reserved for the Cat''), Reginald Fenyx (''Phoenix and Ashes''), and Rosalind Hawkins (''The Fire Rose'').
* ''Literature/TrappedOnDraconica''d has a character called Rana that can blow hurricane winds at her enemies.
* Ruahks in ''Literature/TheQuestOfTheUnaligned'' have power over air and, to some degree, weather, as well as the ability to "pop" from place to place. Unfortunately, they also tend to be, well, ''airheads'', having extreme trouble staying focused on any one thing and having a tendency to act on a whim without really thinking.
* In ''Literature/AfterTheGoldenAge'', the superhero Breezeway is able to fly and manipulate wind.
* Wind and weather-based fairies in the ''Literature/RainbowMagic'' series can do this.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: LiveActionTV]]
* The [[Series/KamenRider first]] [[Series/KamenRiderV3 three]] Franchise/{{Kamen Rider}}s were powered by wind. Similarly, [[Series/KamenRiderDouble Double's]] Cyclone Memory and [[Series/KamenRiderBlade Chalice's]] Tornado Rouse Card grant wind power to their attacks, while [[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Knight]] has multiple wind-themed Advent Cards (as does his [[Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight American counterpart]]). [[Series/KamenRiderHibiki Ibuki and most wind instrument-type Oni]] also use wind powers.
** [[Series/KamenRiderOOO Kazari]] can create vortexes.
* Various ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' warriors and Franchise/PowerRangers have wind powers, including [[Series/ChoudenshiBioman Green Two]], [[Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger Ho-oh Ranger]], [[Series/NinjaSentaiKakuranger Ninja White]], [[Series/SeijuuSentaiGingaman GingaGreen]], [[Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricaneger HurricaneRed]]/[[Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm Red Wind Ranger]], [[Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger MagiPink]]/[[Series/PowerRangersMysticForce Pink Mystic Ranger]], and [[Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger ShinkenPink]]/[[Series/PowerRangersSamurai Pink Samurai Ranger]].
* MysticKnightsOfTirNaNog: Princess Deirdre ("air above me!").
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Mythology and Religion]]
* In Japanese folklore, the mythical creature ''Tengu'' is mostly associated with this trope.
** Also, the Kamaitachi, flying weasel and master of the RazorWind. Scythes are optional.
** There's also Fujin, the god of wind.
* Lucifer, according to ''Literature/TheBible''.
* In ClassicalMythology, the Harpies were [[DependingOnTheWriter sometimes]] the {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s of destructive winds.
* [[MesopotamianMythology Mesopotamian]] wind and storm deities include Enlil and Ishkur.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pinball]]
* Invoked in ''Pinball/{{Whirlwind}}'', where the player must hit certain targets to direct thunderstorms and tornados to their area.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Green mages of ''MagicTheGathering'' has many damaging wind spells, such as [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=129885 Hurricane]]. [[ElementalRockPaperScissors The better to deal with Blue's pesky flying creatures.]]
* A number of spells and prestige classes in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', starting with Gust of Wind and Wind Wall spells.
* Wind is a perfectly acceptable Estate in ''TabletopGame/{{Nobilis}}'', and a high-Domain Power of Air is going to be pulling this stuff a ''lot''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Toys]]
* Air, here associated with the colour green, is one of the six core Matoran elements of ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}'' and, as such, is wielded by the numerous Toa of Air. Unlike most other elements, almost no non-Toa creatures have access to wind powers.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'' has the Gale brushstroke, which is obtained from Kazegami. By drawing a swirl of ink, you can create winds that blow you, your opponents, or objects around. Later, you get a [[RazorWind Whirlwind]] brush technique by drawing 3 horizontal lines. Can be used for [[HilarityEnsues juggling enemies]].
* Zephyr Vanguardion of ''[[FantasiaOtomeGameSeries Fantasia - Momento of Grand Finale]]''.
* ''Zelda'' has several items that give Link wind powers:
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'', Link get a magical leaf that he can use to hang-glide, at the cost of some magic. It can also be used to make a strong blast of air. Another example is the titular Wind Waker, a magical conductor's baton that can be used to change the direction of the wind and conjure cyclones.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMinishCap'': Gust Jar is also dual-purpose. It is charged by sucking up air (and items and enemies), and then releases it as a blast of air. Link uses it to grab elastic mushrooms to pull himself across pits, pull the shells off of enemies, and extinguish flames.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'': Gale Boomerang is used to blow (mostly) pinwheels for various effects.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks'': Whirlwind is a horn-thing that, when Link blows into it, he can use it to push pinwheels, push important items across chasms, and throw bombs into the resident dungeon boss.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'': Farore's Wind is a spell that creates teleportation points in dungeons so Link can quickly return to that room.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'': The Gust Bellows works similarly to the Gust Jar above, but lacks the "suck" part.
* Woodrow/Garr Kelvin from ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny'' wields the Swordian of Wind, Igtenos.
** Spada Belforma of ''VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence'' uses wind and lightning techs and magic.
** Hisui Hearts, ''VideoGame/TalesOfHearts'', uses primarily wind techs with his bow. Also, though he can cast spells of a few elements, he's the only character with the most powerful wind spell, Cyclone.
** Forcystus in ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'', part of the QuirkyMinibossSquad, uses wind spells, some of which also count as RazorWind.
*** From the same game, the [[SummonMagic summon]] [[OurFairiesAreDifferent Sylph]] can be used for wind-element attacks as well.
** [[VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia I'LL BLOW YOU AWAY!]] (Note that the character who says this has quite a few wind-element strike artes in his repetoire.)
*** A stronger example from the same game is Raven, who has both wind based strike artes and wind element magic.
* Subversion: Masaki Andoh of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' rides the Elemental Lord of Wind Cybuster, but does not utilize wind in battle. Instead, it focuses more on its Fragile Speedster status.
** Some animations for his Discutter show it summoning the blade from a small tornado of some sort.
* Aya Shameimaru of ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' is a crow tengu, so she uses wind.
** [[PhysicalGod Kanako Yasaka]] may also manipulate wind. [[{{Miko}} Sanae Kochiya]] can manipulate wind to an extent when she channels Kanako. Then again, Sanae's InformedAbility is thaumaturgy, so...
* SonicTheHedgehog learned some air based abilities from ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' onward.
** Air seems to be Sonic's association element, especially in ''Sonic And The Black Knight", where he's titled The Knight of the Wind because he declares that his only master is the wind that blows free.
* ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'':
** Most of the mainline games use the Zan skills, which are referred to in the game as "Force" skills, [[DontExplainTheJoke because of the way that wind "forces" objects around.]] The ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'' series uses Garu skills instead.
** [[MeaningfulName Gale]] from ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'' excels in these skills.
** Yukari Takeba from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' has a persona that uses mostly wind attacks.
** Yosuke from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' also has a persona with wind attacks, though [[JackOfAllStats he branches out to healing and physical damage as well.]]
* Luc, the wielder of the [[spoiler:True]] Wind Rune in the ''{{Suikoden}}'' series.
* The Franchise/{{Pokemon}} element to which this would be attributed is Flying. Many Flying-types are pretty fast and strong in one attacking stat or the other (usually Attack, though some like Xatu, Chatot and Togekiss have higher Special Attack), but have mediocre defenses and health (though there are a few bulky Flyers like Skarmory and Mandibuzz). Flying-type attacks generally consist of the user using its beak (Peck, Drill Peck), wings (Wing Attack, Sky Attack), talons (Sky Drop), or the air itself as a weapon (Gust, Aeroblast, Hurricane, Air Slash), with a couple being simply Flying-type variants of other moves (Brave Bird, a Flying-type Double-Edge).
** Johto Gym Leader Falkner, Hoenn Gym Leader Winona, and Unova Gym Leader Skyla specialize in Flying types.
** The very first [[OlympusMons Legendary Pokemon]] in the Pokedex are the three elemental birds: [[AnIcePerson Articuno]], [[ShockAndAwe Zapdos]], and [[PlayingWithFire Moltres]].
** The legendary Pokemon Tornadus introduced in VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite is notably the first pure Flying-type, and is based on the wind god Fujin.
** There's also Rayquaza from Generation III; Groudon rules the earth, Kyogre rules the seas, and Rayquaza, whose roar is enough to send the other two running, rules the sky.
** Lugia, whose power is so strong that just flapping its wings can blow houses apart, has a signature move called Aeroblast, an AwesomeYetPractical move (if you're willing to look past the 5 PP) that has an increased critical hit rate.
* Ivan and Sheba from ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' both have wind manipulation powers in their base class, though any of the playable characters can gain these powers through use of the class system. Karis, their successor in the third game, has the added benefit of wind-based [[HealingHands healing]]. She is joined by [[BareFistedMonk Sveta]], who, unlike her fellow Jupiter Adepts, actually knows what she's doing in a physical fight.
* Lilica Felchenrow in ''VideoGame/ArcanaHeart'' uses the Arcana of Wind as her default.
* The Arashi orb from ''{{Onimusha}}'' gives Samanosuke the ability to use wind magic.
* Goenitz from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters''.
* ''VideoGame/MegaMan2'': Air Man [[MemeticMutation ga taosenai!]]
** Also, Wind Man and Tornado Man, but not Gyro Man. And as in the myth, Tengu Man. Also, Hyperstorm H from ''Wily Wars''.
** There's almost always an example in each game from ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' onwards. Most notable is [[EnsembleDarkhorse Harpuia]] of ''VideoGame/MegaManZero''.
* Misaki Kawana of ''EternalFighterZero'' uses wind in many of her attacks, both to boost her movement and to pound her opponent with strong gales.
* Any magic user who gets their hands on the Wind, Elwind, Tornado, Forseti, Blizzard, Aircalibur, Excalibur, or Rexcalibur tomes in ''FireEmblem''.
** Some examples of characters who wield said tomes constantly: Lewyn (Elwind [[spoiler: and late Forseti]]), [[spoiler: Lewyn's magic user children (either Corple, Arthur or Ced)]] (Forseti), Cecilia (Aircalibur), Ursula [[spoiler: as a morph]] (Excalibur), Soren (Rexcalibur), Ricken and later [[spoiler: Laurent]] (Elwind)...
* Both shamans and druids in ''{{Warcraft}}'' can manipulate the air; shamans call upon it for a wide and assorted range of powers, while druids prefer to summon hurricanes and tornadoes to destroy and incapacitate their enemies.
** Skywall, one of the elemental planes, is home the Al'akir the Windlord and his minions.
* Crono gets a "Wind Slash" attack in ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', which has the same Light (Heaven) element as his spells.
* Xaldin from ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', who manages to be both TheBrute and a ManipulativeBastard (not to mention one of the [[ThatOneBoss/KingdomHearts most infamous bosses]] in the entire series).
** Also, Ventus, [[MeaningfulName as his name suggests.]] Like [[DishingOutDirt Terra]] and [[MakingASplash Aqua]], he can use the other elements in his regular spells as well, but only he can use the high level Tornado spell, and several of his finishing attacks mix in wind.
* The ''MapleStory'' Knight of Cygnus [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Windbreaker]] class is composed of archers that use the power of the wind. One of their skills involves use of a magical wind that makes them immune to physical attacks, and wind-based attacks used in this state have their attack power increased. A different skill turns all neutral attacks into wind-based attacks, including their MoreDakka and RainOfArrows. They are generally more {{Glass Cannon}}s rather than {{Fragile Speedster}}s, as they are quite slow and have low health compared to the other Knights of Cygnus.
* Wendy Ryan of ''PsychicForce'', the Psychiccer of Wind.
* Elementalists in ''GuildWars'' can specialize in air magic, and while it focuses mainly on lightning, several genuine wind-only spells make appearances as well.
** Dervishes also have some wind based skills, appropriately associated with the "Wind Prayers" attribute.
* Von Twirlenkiller, the third boss from ''MadWorld''.
* ''CityOfHeroes'' has the "storm summoning" powerset, allowing a PC to attack with windgusts, hurricanes, and tornadoes, along with other kinds of storms. Oddly enough, the powerset also has a basic healing power associated with it.
* Talim from [[SoulSeries Soul Calibur]], who's a "Wind Priestess", [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin oh!]]
* Fraternal twin brothers Kharg and Darc from ''VideoGame/ArcTheLadTwilightOfTheSpirits'', both being the Wind-oriented guy in two different teams and the leader.
* Rachel Alucard from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' has the Drive power to literally blow herself and the opponent away with wind.
* In some ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games, the Pandemona, Chocobo, Sylph, and Fenrir summons can deal Wind damage.
** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', Sabin can summon a tornado...which heals the party and takes him out of the fight. [[UselessUsefulSpell And leaves him dead afterwards.]] He also utilizes a more traditional wind-based attack.
** There's also a recurring Aero or Tornado spell that occasionally shows up.
** The protagonists of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' are each designated various elements, with the hero Bartz getting wind. As the Gladiator class in the remake, he can sometimes execute a wind-elemental attack dealing 9999 damage.
** Fujin, a RecurringBoss in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'', named after the Japanese God of Wind. Appropriately, she's partnered with [[ShockAndAwe Raijin]] (God of Thunder).
** Chaos, the Esper of Wind in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'' obviously fits this trope.
* The [[WindIsGreen Green Mages and Green Skulls]] in the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' series specialize in wind magic, and the Mystic Beast is their monster counterpart.
* Aside from being a [[TheMedic healing]] WhiteMagicianGirl, ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV'''s Nina uses wind magic for offense.
* Vivi in ''LuminousArc'' and Sadie in the sequel, ''LuminousArc2''. (In Sadie's case, one of her random battle quotes is actually "I'll blow you away!").
* ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'':
** Kushala Daora from ''Freedom United and Frontier 2''. It's known as the elder dragon of wind, and with good reason. It can generate a wind barrier around itself which will knock hunters off their feet if they get too close, which can complicate things for melee hunters. It has a breath weapon befitting its nature. Instead of fire or lightning, it fires blasts of concentrated hurricane-force winds, capable of doing heavy damage and throwing a hunter 10~15 feet into the air.
** Nibelsnarf and Sand Barioth can shoot powerful gusts of wind in ''Portable 3rd'' and ''Ultimate''. The former does it in a way similar to Gobul (expelling a vortex of wind from its mouth), which would have this power as well except it can only do it underwater. The latter can lay a vertical cyclone and then use it to spin and quickly charge at the hunter.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Heretic}}'', the Iron Lich boss has a windstorm attack that throws you up in the air and does damage until you escape.
* Tornado Kirby and Wing Kirby from the ''VideoGame/{{Kirby}}'' series.
* The wind itself in ''VideoGame/{{Flower}}'', which combines with PetalPower.
* Sindel's scream fatality and Fujin's wind-skinner fatality in the ''MortalKombat'' series.
* The game ''LostWinds'' gives you the ability to control, move, and attack with - you guessed it - wind!
* The titular monster hunters in ''TheWitcher'' have a variety of simple spells ranging from traps that damage and immobilize anything walking over them, to blasts of fire, to limited mind control. Their most often used is a quick blast of wind that can push back, stun, knockdown, and disarm anyone in front of them at the time.
* [[RaidouKuzunohaVsTheSoullessArmy Raidou Kuzunoha]] uses "Force" spells in his [[CanonForeigner cameo]] in the UpdatedRerelease of ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne''.
* This is one of many elemental abilities Luigi of the ''SuperMarioBros'' series has shown, while playing baseball or soccer. Being Luigi, the WindIsGreen, and even gains a vacuum in ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'' that can blow wind, fire, water and ice.
* In ''{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'', we have Liebea, a [[MoeMoe cute]], [[ShrinkingViolet shy]] pink-haired girl who's prone to PowerIncontinence in the form of summoning powerful storms.
* {{KOEI}} gives us the ''DynastyWarriors'', where wind is not a standard element but is generally common as part of attacks used as juggling or crowd clearing moves. Pang Tong is the most notable practitioner, possessed of powerful crowd clearing tornadoes as part of his moveset and his [[LimitBreak musou attack]]. His faction color and his attacks are, of course, [[WindIsGreen green.]]
** It appears with greater regularity in the ''SamuraiWarriors'' series, where the available elements include [[AnIcePerson ice]], [[KillItWithFire fire]], [[ShockAndAwe lightning]], [[CastingAShadow demon]], and, as per this trope, wind. A wind element attack IgnoresDefense and damages enemies even if they block. No one character explicitly specializes in the element, but Shingen Takeda can easily call on it due to his moveset reflecting his motto Fu Rin Ka Zan. Several 'final' weapons also feature the Wind element, most notably that of Nobunaga Oda.
* [[MeaningfulName Matsukaze Tenma]] of [[InazumaEleven Inazuma Eleven GO]] uses wind-based hissatsu.
* Janna the Storm's Fury from ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'', who summons tornadoes, protective wind shields, and healing winds.
** Yasuo the Unforgiven has several wind-based abilities, including (again) tornadoes and a wall of wind.
* ''VideoGame/WildStar'' has the Thundercall Pell, and their "god" Stormtalon. Alongside summoning twisters and tornadoes, they can also [[ShockAndAwe throw lightning at]] their enemies.
* Zael's Gale attack is this in ''VideoGame/TheLastStory''. The magical wind it casts allows to dispel magic circles, both his party members' to extend their effects and those of the enemies to nullify them.

* Skogul's power in ''{{Earthsong}}''.
* Kei's power in ''[[http://www.revenant-braves.schala.net/ Circumstances of the Revenant Braves]]''.
* The Windmaster in ''{{Acrobat}}'' is a villainous version of this.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''[='=]s [[TheHero John Egbert]] is the Heir of Breath and, as such, is associated with and wields power over wind, but he is more of a JackOfAllStats than a FragileSpeedster. When he first shows at least some control, he generates a massive cyclone that blows out the fire covering almost an entire ''planet''.
-->"[[DieOrFly DO THE WINDY THING DO THE WINDY THING DO THE WINDY THING]]"
** After [[CameBackStrong ascending to the God Tiers]], his control over wind got even stronger. His first trick after this? [[FlyingCar Making a car fly while inside it]]. Tell me you wouldn't do that if you had the ability. And from there, he just tops himself again and again. Three words: [[spoiler: [[ThisIsADrill TORNADO. PLANETARY. DRILL]].]] [[PhysicalGod The God Tiers are clearly not hyperbole]].
*** He has also been seen using his powers to control throwing weapons and evade attacks by dissolving into wind ribbons and reforming behind the opponent. [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower He can also prevent animals from tracking him by scent.]]
** [[WheelchairWoobie Tavros Nitram]] was the Page of Breath, and so at least had the potential to have similar wind powers. He's never seen using them, though.
* In ''{{Strays}}'', [[http://www.straysonline.com/comic/102.htm what the fox woman deploys against Feral]].
* ''{{Panthera}}'': [[AltumVidetur Pardus Aeris]], Leopard of Air.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Pacificators}}'', we know of three people with the power of air: [[TheStoic Taffe,]] [[HotBlooded Enlil,]] and [[TallDarkAndHandsome Gincoi]] (at least, [[EmotionlessGirl Taffe]] [[DidYouThinkICantFeel thinks]] [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial so]]). Taffe is a rank B Pacificator, and Gincoi was classified as type 2 (weakest being 1). Enlil was classified at type 8 (strongest being 10). Enlil is so powerful at her control over the wind, she's capable of using a kite to [[NotQuiteFlight fly upon the wind.]]
* ''{{Zoophobia}}'''s Horris has powers of wind that he makes sure to boast greatly about to everyone within earshot, although he's yet to be soon actually using these abilities.
* Alita's powers in {{Webcomic/Nexus}} seem to be based on flight and controlling air.

* [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Rinoa]] in the ''DeadFantasy'' series.

* In ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'', both Flora and Stormy can use wind-based attacks.
** The Sophix power gives Musa power over wind in the 4th season.
** Musa also has sound-based powers, which could represent air.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' is the story about, [[CaptainObvious well]], [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin guess]].
** And Aang starts out as a FragileSpeedster, although this abates as he learns the other elements. His [[DishingOutDirt Earthbending]] [[CuteBruiser trainer]] nicknamed him 'Twinkle Toes'.
* In SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'': [[{{Mentor}} Tenzin]], [[CuteBookworm Jinora]], [[MotorMouth Ikki]], and [[UglyCute Meelo]] are a family of Airbenders descended from Aang, who instruct Korra, the current Avatar, in Airbending. Interestingly, in contrast to the ElementalRockPaperScissors trope, Korra has the most difficulty learning Airbending due to her HotBlooded nature; she has to [[BreakTheHaughty go through hell and back]] before airbending for the first time near the end of Season 1.
** And as shown in flashbacks, even when the original Gaang was in middle-age adulthood, Aang could not escape Toph calling him "[[CallBack Twinkle Toes]]".
* Linka of ''CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers''.
* Raimundo in ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown''.
** Despite them commonly being Fragile Speedsters, wind elements probably packs the biggest punch of all the characters in the show (literally and with regard to power).
** Have you seen the Final Showdown? [[spoiler: He knocks out all the bad guys by himself (who pretty much rule the alternate timeline) once, then completely takes them down while injured, using their own evil statues, all the while surrounded by a holy glow!]]
* Hay Lin from ''[[WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}} W.I.T.C.H.]]''
* Jetstorm from ''TransformersAnimated'', as well as Optimus Prime, by way of the Magnus Hammer.

** Twilight Sparkle uses a magical variant in Boast Busters.
** Generation 1 has the Flutter Ponies and their "Utter Flutter." It takes a whole bunch of them (maybe all!) to do it, but it's pretty powerful, and magical, able to do more than simply physically blow stuff around, such as "blowing away" nasty magical effects when all else had failed. It's practically a DeusExMachina.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011'', Gami, a PaperMaster, can fold an animate paper dragon who has this as a BreathWeapon, blowing away evil spirits.
* Samurai from ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'' could turn the lower half of his body into a tornado after speaking magic words.
