[[caption-width-right:350:A cool breeze makes this {{pretty| in mink}} [[GracefulLadiesLikePurple lady]] even hotter.]]

->''"Do you see this? Do you see this wind? This is Revlon Wind, okay? It makes me look even hotter than usual."''
-->-- '''Mina''', ''WebVideo/SailorMoonAbridged''

The Hot Wind (also known as the Mystic Hot Girl Wind or the Wind of Sexy) is generated by the first appearance of a particularly attractive (usually female) character. When she walks in, a [[DramaticWind mysterious breeze]] tousles her hair and clothing in the most fetching way possible. Usually, this all happens in SlowMotion.

Frequently appears in conjunction with {{Gaussian Girl}}s.

A SubTrope of DramaticWind. Compare the MarilynManeuver.

Not to be confused with [[HeatWave actual hot winds like Foehn or Santa Ana winds]], or any reputed physiological or psychological effects surrounding the same.

* Every shampoo/conditioner/makeup commercial ever.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gPcVG-dx8Y This]] old Dairy Queen commercial, featuring none other than Fabio.
* Jane Krakowski, playing off her ''Series/ThirtyRock'' persona, has her hair tousled this way in a commercial for low-calorie orange juice. As the camera angle changes, we see she's making a friend hold a fan up to her.


[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Spoofed in ''Manga/LoveLab'' where Maki tries to invoke this with fans. Riko tells her to cut it out.

[[folder: Film ]]
* ''Film/WaynesWorld'': Most shots of Garth's crush feature this.
* Astrid in ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon''. {{Justified|Trope}} because she was walking out of a conflagration at the time... which makes it a ''[[IncrediblyLamePun literal]]'' HotWind.
* Played with in ''Film/{{Twilight}}'' - when Edward first sees Bella, she gets this treatment, because she's standing in front of a fan. Edward gives a freaked-out reaction to her. It seems like he's reacting to her appearance, but we later find out it's because the fan was blowing her ''smell'' towards him - to him, a vampire, she smells more delicious than anyone he's ever met.


[[folder: Live Action TV ]]
* ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'', justified because of a fan behind the character.
** It actually happens nearly every time an attractive female is introduced. Eventually lampshaded in the eighth season when JD narrates how he likes to describe attractive women walking in slow motion with wind blowing through their hair whenever she meets them.
%%* ''Series/BostonLegal''
* ''Series/{{Buffy|the Vampire Slayer}}'':
** Played with this in the season 5 premiere:
---> '''Buffy to Dracula''': You think you can just waft in with your music-video wind.
** Spoofed in the ImagineSpot in "Storyteller". Andrew is filming Buffy and WaxingLyrical.
--->'''Andrew:''' (V.O.): You've already met Buffy. (Buffy [[SlowMotion gracefully pours]] herself a bowl of cereal, and [[HairFlip shakes her hair sexily]] in the [[HotWind breeze that comes from nowhere]], and [[AsideGlance looks directly into the camera]]) She's beautiful, with a lion's heart andó (Buffy winks) and the face of an angel. She's never afraid 'cause she knows her side will always win.
* In ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'', Ned is convinced in one episode that his true love will be highlighted by a glowing light and this trope.
* ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOnDeck'': Zack finds a girl who doesn't fall for his charms, and as his feelings for her grow, when he looks at her, he sees her with the wind blowing through her hair.
* ''Series/{{Chuck}}'' did this with the Buy More entrances of Sarah, Carina, Anna, and Hannah, lampshaded it by giving that same dramatic breeze to Morgan, and finally had the entire Nerd Herd receive the HotWind treatment courtesy of Morgan holding up a fan.
* ''Series/ThirtyRock'' - Liz Lemon sets up an industrial fan to create this effect for her when ex-boyfriend Floyd returns to New York needing a place to stay. Accompanied by full make up and ridiculously tight red dress, to create a much 'hotter' Lemon (who cannot [[FashionHurts breathe normally]]).
* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' has this when [=McLarens=] hires a female bartender. Apparently being female and behind a bar not only makes you gorgeous, but also makes your hair blow in the wind.

[[folder: Literature]]
* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', three Raith sisters get this in Turn Coat. Justified, as they show up by ''jumping out of a helicopter that's level with the trees''. Lampshaded by Harry, who said that if there were any justice in the world, he would get to watch them walk in slow motion.

* [[Advertising/AirNewZealandSafetyVideos Air New Zealand's]] awesome/funny [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBlRbrB_Gnc safety video]] made to coincide with the ''Film/TheHobbit'' has a moment where a MrFanservice passenger does this with his long black Aragorn-like hair...until the elvish flight attendant takes the hair dryer off him.

[[folder: Video Games ]]
* Yukiko Amagi's portrait uses it in ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena''. And the story mode describes it in detail when she summons her alter ego.
* Happens to Sky in ''VideoGame/{{Shantae}}''.

[[folder: Western Animation ]]
* [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Aang]]'s [[LoveAtFirstSight first glimpse of Katara]] is marked by a mysterious breeze fluttering through her hair loops.
* Invoked in ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' when Filbert turns on a fan for Rocko's "windswept look" in photos. He even throws in a MarilynManeuver.
