[[caption-width-right:333: All the windmills fear my might!]]

->''"Winds, guard me!"''
-->-- '''Xaldin''', ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''

This is an [[ElementalPowers Elemental Power]], mainly dealing with air or wind. 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. Wind users [[PersonalityPowers tend to be cheerful, free-spirited types]]. If TheHero uses wind powers, then TheLancer will often use [[PlayingWithFire fire]]. When combined with [[DishingOutDirt earth]], it can create a sandstorm; with [[MakingASplash water]], it can form a mist; and with fire, comes [[ShockAndAwe lightning]]. The very lucky may have this as merely a subset of WeatherManipulation.

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.



[[folder:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
%%* Belldandy in ''Manga/AhMyGoddess''.
* 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]].
* In ''Manga/ArataKangatari'', this is the primary element of Kugura's Hayagami, which is usually used to aid in his flight.
* To some degree, Koushirou Chikuma from ''Manga/{{Basilisk}}''. He can create small tornados with his breath and use them with RazorWind effects.
* ''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 ''Anime/BleachMemoriesOfNobody'' 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.]]
* In ''Manga/Brave10'', Kamanosuke's elemental specialty is wind, usually using it to physically blow people away, but with some handy defensive possibilities, like defusing and blowing away grapeshot grenades.
* ''Manga/BungouStrayDogs'' has Margaret Mitchell and her ability, Gone With the Wind, which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.
* 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.
* 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.
%%* ''Anime/CombattlerV'''s Super Electro Magnetic Whirlwind.
* ''Anime/{{Daimos}}'' has the attack 'Double Blizzard'. [[GratuitousEnglish Despite the name]], it's a pair of tornadoes, not a pair of freezing blizzards.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'':
** Erigor can create a wall of wind that can trap enemies and even make an armor out of the wind.
** Wendy 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.
** Chelia Blendy has powers that are similar to Wendy's thanks to her Sky God Slayer magic. The winds that she summons are black, but despite this and the fact that the only other God Slayers are [[AxCrazy psychotic]] or [[ArrogantKungFuGuy full of themselves]], [[DarkIsNotEvil she's very kind and upbeat]].
** [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Tempester's]] Curse allows him to throw around natural disasters, including tornadoes.
* Tabitha [[spoiler:(or better said, Princess Charlotte Heléne de Orléans)]] from ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero''.
* Hyui of the Wind in ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar''. His comrades are Sea, Mountain, Fire and Clouds.
* [[MeaningfulName Fuuko Kirisawa]] from ''Manga/FlameOfRecca'', using the wind Madogu Fuujin.
* Limdo/Uruki from ''Manga/FushigiYuugi: 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'']].
* In ''Animation/GuardianFairyMichel'', Baron the wind fairy has this power.nga/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.
* ''Manga/InuYasha'':
** Kagura uses attacks that mix this with RazorWind.
** The titular character can use a hurricane attack known as Wind Scar.
** Miroku's ''kazaana'' (Windtunnel) is the inverse: a black vortex that'll suck in anything it can unless controlled by his sacred beads.
* ''LightNovel/{{Inukami}}'': Kaoru's specialty is wind magic. Though, oddly, he invokes the "White Mountain God" to do it.
* ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'':
** The Pillar Man Wamuu in Part 2 can generate mini cyclones and torrents of wind just by twirling his barbed dreadlocks or spinning his arms.
** Gatta in Part 4, a [[ItMakesSenseInContext cat-plant]]. Her stand, Stray Cat, has the ability to manipulate air, capable of creating air bubbles strong enough to hold a person against a wall or enter their veins, blocking blood passage. This is due to its photosynthesis from being a plant; the stronger the light, the stronger the control Stray Cat has over the air.
** Aishou in Part 8. His Stand Doobie Wah! takes the form of a little tornado that grows in intensity with the breathing of his targets.
** Part 8 also have Kyo, whose stand creates wind as strong as a hurricane around itself. On top of that, [[AnIcePerson this wind is really cold]].
* Otohiko from ''Manga/KamisamaKiss'' is a wind god, three guesses what his powers consist of.
* 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 ''Manga/{{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.
* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'':
** There's 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.
* [[MeaningfulName Fuu Hououji]], MagicKnight of Wind from ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth''.
* Negi of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' originally specialized in wind-based spells, though, more recently, he seemed to prefer [[ShockAndAwe lightning]].
* Midori Sugiura's CHILD Gakutenou in the ''Anime/MaiHiME'' anime (and Akane's in [[Manga/MaiHiME the manga]]).
* ''Anime/MazingerZ'' has the Rust Hurricane attack, where the robot blows a wind charged with corrosive particles disintegrate the enemy. ''Anime/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.
* Howzer from ''Manga/{{Nanatsu No Taizai}}'' can control wind, which he uses to create enormous hurricanes.
* ''Franchise/{{Naruto}}'':
** There's Temari and a good percentage of the rest of the Hidden Sand Village (which is located in the Land of Wind), as well as Asuma Sarutobi, Naruto Uzumaki himself, and Danzo Shimura 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 ''Manga/{{Boruto}}'', Naruto's eponymous son is shown to be quite adept at wind techniques even as an Academy student.
** In ''Anime/NarutoTheMovieNinjaClashInTheLandOfSnow'', Princess Fun, the character played by film actress Yukie Fujikaze in-universe, uses wind powers against her enemies.
* Fuusuke of ''Manga/{{Ninku}}'' is the captain of all wind-using ninja despite only being 12.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'':
** Franky 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.]]
* Lisa from ''Manga/PopcornAvatar'', as incarnation of the Deva of Wind Vayu, gives Kurando access to wind-based attacks and wind-based {{Flight}}.
* Hayate from ''Manga/{{Pretear}}'', the Leafe Knight of Wind.
* 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.
* One of the lewd Blue Gaurdians from ''Manga/RaveMaster''. PowerPerversionPotential ensues.
* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'': According to [[WordOfGod the artbooks]], Sailor Jupiter can create hurricanes and cyclones in the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]].
* ''Manga/SaintSeiya'':
** Shun has the Nebula Storm, his most powerful attack. A deadly version of Nebula Stream where his cosmos swirls and combines into a destructive storm. Howewer he mostly uses his trusty chains in battle.
** Shun's brother Phoenix Ikki can create small tornadoes on fire.
** The Mariners Scylla Io with his Big Tornado attack.
** The Spectre Wyvern Rhadamanthys. His Greatest Caution attack is a wind-type move that charges up Rhadamanthys' Cosmo to the highest point of power, it is then unleashed at a central point via two opened palms. The opponent becomes helpless as powerful typhoon-like winds blast them into oblivion. It can take two forms: a dark energy blast, or the form of Rhadamanthys' spirit, the mythical Wyvern.
** Anime-only character Docrates. In his attacck, Heracles Fierce Onslaught Fist, Docrates crosses, then flexes his arms, concentrating his Cosmo in his fists and causing the winds around of him to change due to the pressure. Next, he attacks with both fists, projecting two powerful blasts which affect a large area.
%%* Kazehana from ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}''.
* Takeda Shingen of ''VideoGame/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.
* Wind is Cure March's personal element in ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure''. Considering her theme color, it also doubles as WindIsGreen.
%%* Girouette (or Juliet, as spelled in Del Rey translation) from ''Manga/SugarSugarRune''.
* Keith Goodman/Sky High from ''Anime/TigerAndBunny'' has NEXT powers that allow him to control wind and float/fly.

%%* Seiichirou Aoki and Daisuke Saiki from ''Manga/{{X1999}}''.
* ''Manga/{{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.
* Jin of ''Manga/YuYuHakusho''. His powers involve the use of wind to the point he can even glide seamlessly and much of his strategem is diving down at the enemy like a hawk snatching his prey.
%%* [[Manga/{{Zeorymer}} Lanster of the Wind.]]

* ''ComicBook/XMen''
** ComicBook/{{Storm}} 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''.
* B-list ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' villain The Shocker sits somewhere between here and MakeMeWannaShout; a skilled engineer, Shocker commits his crimes using "vibrosmasher" gloves that rapidly vibrate air inside his gauntlets and then project these as vibratory blasts capable of exploding concrete and steel.

* In Fanfic/KeepersOfTheElements, Lindsay has this as her Element.
* [[SixthRanger Macroburst]] and [[PteroSoarer Terror]][[WindFromBeneathMyWings dactyl]] in ''Fanfic/RiseOfTheGaleforces.''
* Bakura in ''Fanfic/TheThreeKingsHunt''
* The minor character Pendar in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''.

* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries''
** Storm's control of the weather includes powerful winds.
** Riptide from ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', can create strong winds.
* One of the witches in ''Film/HanselVsGretel'' has wind powers. [[spoiler:One meal later, so does Gretel]].
* ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'': The monsters Film/{{Rodan}}, Film/{{Mothra}}, [[Film/GhidorahTheThreeHeadedMonster King Ghidorah]] and [[Film/TerrorOfMechagodzilla Titanosuarus]] can create destructive gale force winds capable of demolishing buildings, the first three do this by flapping their wings while Titanosuarus accomplishes this with his tailfin.

* Glinda the Good Witch of the South is said "commands the spirits of the air" in ''[[Literature/LandOfOz The Emerald City of Oz]]''. Ironically, most adaptations of [[Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz the first book]] play this up:
** In the 1902 opera, Glinda sends frozen winds to destroy the poisoned poppies and later creates a second cyclone to send Dorothy back home. The libretto even calls her the "Mighty Ruler of Storm and Calm." Techincally, Locasta, the Witch of the North, is the one to instigate both cases, but has to invoke Glinda in order to do it.
** In the 1939 film ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'', she forgoes a broomstick for a bubble. Added to that, the film reuses the idea of Glinda sending a snow-storm to rescue Dorothy from the poisoned poppies.
** In ''Film/TheWiz'', Glinda is behind the storm that sends Dorothy to Oz.
** In ''WesternAnimation/JourneyBackToOz'', Glinda sends a second cyclone to send Dorothy back home. Possibly a coincidence, but it could be an allusion to the original opera.
** In ''Film/OzTheGreatAndPowerful'', Glinda casts spells invoking Aerokinises, specifically fog and clouds, as well as the traditional bubbles.
* ''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]] used wind magic almost as often as fire magic in the early books (he began using force magic instead in later books), 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 ''ComicBook/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 ''Literature/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 ''Literature/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 ''Literature/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 ''Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian'' story "Literature/TheScarletCitadel", Pelias explains that he is calling on air spirits to form Conan's transport.
* In the first ''Literature/ThePaperMagician'' book, the protagonist, Ceony, learns how to Fold a paper fan that magically produces gusts of wind. In her mentor's words, "Made well, it can give gusts that would embarrass a thunderstorm." She puts it to good use later.
* The fifth and last introduced main character from Creator/AnthonyHorowitz's ''Literature/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 Creator/DevonMonk's ''Literature/DeadIron'', Cedar's arrival at the mine is announced by dust devils that form without any wind.
* Trisana Chandler in Creator/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 ''Literature/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 (''Literature/ReservedForTheCat''), Reginald Fenyx (''Literature/PhoenixAndAshes''), Rosalind Hawkins (''Literature/TheFireRose''), Lionel Hawkins (''Literature/{{Steadfast}}''), and Giselle Schnittel (''Literature/FromAHighTower''). Wind mages, unless they are ''very'' powerful aren't much good in combat, but they '''can''' feed energy to fire mages, who are ''excellent'' at it.
* In ''Literature/TrappedOnDraconica'' the character Rana is a Dragonkin and her BreathWeapon allows her to exhale at hurricane force.
* 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.
* The Air Clan in ''Literature/WrongTimeForDragons'' can do many things with Air magic, frying flying on air currents and listening to wind whispers (which tell them what they need to know) to rending flesh from their enemies' bones with focused blasts of air. The protagonist's main opponent is the head of the Air Clan, a true master of this Element.
* In ''Literature/VampireAcademy'', Kenneth, a torturer, uses air to pressure Lissa's skull, smother her, and leaving her gasping for air.
* In Creator/RyuunosukeAkiyama's ''A Terribly Dangerous Coat'', Ishiria and Luran can both use wind magic.
* Airwitches of ''Literature/TheWitchlands'' have this ability, though the extent of it differs from person to person. A Windwitch can create gusts of wind, "sense" through the wind and use it to fly, while a full Airwitch is capable of this and more, up to and including summoning storms.

[[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, and [[Series/KamenRiderWizard Wizard]] has Hurricane style and its Dragon upgrade.
* 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]], [[Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger ShinkenPink]]/[[Series/PowerRangersSamurai Pink Samurai Ranger]], and [[Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger GoseiRed and GoseiPink]]/[[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce Red and Pink Megaforce Rangers]].
* ''Series/TheMysticKnightsOfTirNaNog'': Princess Deirdre is the Mystic Knight of air, capable of shooting whirlwinds from her crossbow. To summon her Mystic armor, she shouts "air above me!".

DJ the S' "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67-unw6llIE Disciple of the Wind]]" is a compilation remix of Wind-based themes from video games.

[[folder:Myths & 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 Myth/ClassicalMythology, the Harpies were [[DependingOnTheWriter sometimes]] the {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s of destructive winds.
* Myth/MesopotamianMythology: Wind and Storm deities include Enlil and Ishkur.
* Taino legend has Guabancex, the goddess of storms.
* The wolf in the tale of "Literature/TheThreeLittlePigs" blows away the house of straw and the house of sticks that belong to the first two pigs. He fails with the house of stone of the third pig.
-->''"Then I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house in." So he huffed, and he puffed, and he blew his house in, and ate up the little pig.''

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

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Attempted on the first night of ''[[Wrestling/RingOfHonor Super Card Of Honor X]]'' when Dalton Castle's attempt to pin Donovan Dijak with a sunset flip failed and The Boys futilely tried to blow Dijak over by waving fans at him. It ''may'' have played a factor in Castle's match with Silas Young at the previous year's ''Best In The World'', however.[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Magnekinetics in ''TabletopGame/PsionicsTheNextStageInHumanEvolution'' can generate high winds to knock away opponents and incoming attacks, summon tornadoes, and fly on the wind.
* 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''.

* Air, here associated with the colour green, is one of the six core Matoran elements of ''Toys/{{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: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]].
* Tornado enemies and Harpies in ''VideoGame/{{Miitopia}}'' can blow small tornadoes at the Miis, sending them away from the battlefield for a few turn. The Princesses can also create gusts of RazorWind with their fans.
* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' has several items that give Link wind powers:
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'', Link gets a magical Deku Leaf from the [[WiseTree Deku Tree]] 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 without needing to use magic. A more blatant 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/TheLegendOfZeldaTheMinishCap'': 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.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'': The Korok Leaf can produce blasts of air similarly to the Deku Leaf.
* 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'''s eponymous hero learned some wind-based techniques since ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2''.
** Wind seems to be strongly associated with Sonic, especially in ''VideoGame/SonicAndTheBlackKnight''; in that game, he's titled "Knight of the Wind" because he declares that his only master is the wind that blows free. In ''VideoGame/SonicRush'', Cream the Rabbit says that Sonic is "like the wind" when asked about him by [[DefrostingIceQueen Blaze the Cat]].
* In ''VideoGame/BloonsTowerDefense'', the Monkey Apprentice gets this quite literally with the Tempest Tornado upgrade, allowing him to blow Bloons back towards the start. Same thing with the Heli Pilot's Downdraft upgrade.
* ''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. Some games also describe the "Zan" spells as shooting shockwaves rather than wind.
** The Law Hero of ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiI'' specializes in Zan. His successor in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'', Jonathan, is this and AnIcePerson as a result of no human being able to learn Ice spells in ''I''.
** [[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]].
** Morgana, the MentorMascot of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'', specializes in wind magic, though he also branches heavily into healing magic as well.
* Luc, the wielder of the [[spoiler:True]] Wind Rune in the ''VideoGame/{{Suikoden}}'' series.
* The Franchise/{{Pokemon}} type to which this would be attributed is Flying. Flying-type attacks regularly consist of the user using the air itself as a weapon (Gust, Aeroblast, Hurricane, Air Slash).
** Johto Gym Leader Falkner, Hoenn Gym Leader Winona, Unova Gym Leader Skyla, and Alola Elite Four Kahili specialize in Flying types.
** The legendary Pokemon Tornadus introduced in VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite is notably the first and only pure Flying-type in the franchise, 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, despite being more often associated with the ocean, falls under this category. Its power is so strong that just flapping its wings can blow houses apart, and its signature move is called Aeroblast, a [[FrickinLaserBeams laser of pressurized air]] that has a high chance of dealing a critical hit.
* 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. Jupiter Adepts also have lightning powers, can receive visions unveil illusions and are apparently capable of predicting the future as well.
* Lilica Felchenrow in ''VideoGame/ArcanaHeart'' uses the Arcana of Wind as her default.
* The Arashi orb from ''VideoGame/{{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}} 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 ''VideoGame/EternalFighterZero'' uses wind in many of her attacks, both to boost her movement and to pound her opponent with strong gales.
* ''Franchise/FireEmblem:''
** Any magic user who gets their hands on the Wind, Elwind, Tornado, Forseti, Blizzard, Aircalibur, Excalibur, or Rexcalibur tomes, which most often involve the user conjuring [[RazorWind slicing blades]] of [[WindIsGreen green-colored wind]].
** Some examples of characters who wield said tomes constantly: Merric (Excalibur), Lewyn (Elwind [[spoiler: and late Forseti]]), [[spoiler: Lewyn's magic user children (either Corple, Arthur or Ced)]] (Forseti), Amid (any Wind tome [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer and nothing else]]), Cecilia (Aircalibur), Ursula [[spoiler: as a morph]] (Excalibur), Soren (Rexcalibur), Ricken and later [[spoiler: Laurent]] (Elwind), Luthier (Excalibur)...
* Both shamans and druids in ''VideoGame/{{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.
** Al'Akir's four highest ranking minions plus the intended replacement for one of them each specialize in a specific form of control over Air: Anshal Lord of the West Wind uses his power over calm winds to simultaneously heal himself and ''[[NightmareFuel suffocate the Raiders]]'', Nezir Lord of the North Wind uses his power over cold winds to KillItWithIce, Rohash Lord of the East Wind uses his power over the strongest winds to rip his enemies apart with RazorWind and tornadoes, Siamat Lord of the South Wind uses his power over tempests to [[{{Knockback}} send the Raiders flying across the area he's in]] and uses the power of storms to fire off [[EnergyBall concentrated bolts of]] [[ShockAndAwe lightning]] while droping [[EnergyBall ball]] [[ShockAndAwe lightning]] on his foes as his minions turn into storm clouds, his potential successor Assad uses ShockAndAwe.
* Crono gets a "Wind Slash" attack in ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'', which has the same Light (Heaven) element as his spells.
* ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'':
** Only in the first game, Sora, Donald, and the Disney companions who can use magic have access to the Aero spell, creating a whirlwind around the user that serves as a damage dampener for a minute or so. Its maximum form Aeroga is a RazorWind, causing damage on contact with enemies.
** ''[[KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories Chain of Memories]]'' brings Aero back as a card. The whirlwind only lasts a second, but it can be combined with other cards for devastating attacks, usually in the forms of tornados.
** ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' gives us Xaldin, who manages to be both TheBrute and a ManipulativeBastard (not to mention one of the [[ThatOneBoss/KingdomHearts most infamous bosses]] in the entire series).
** ''[[KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep Birth By Sleep]]'' has this in Ventus, [[MeaningfulName as his name suggests.]] Like fellow protagonists [[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 ''VideoGame/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 ''VideoGame/PsychicForce'', the Psychiccer of Wind.
* Elementalists in ''VideoGame/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 ''VideoGame/MadWorld''.
* ''VideoGame/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 [[VideoGame/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.
** There's also a recurring Aero or Tornado spell that occasionally shows up.
** Late in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'', [[spoiler:the Emperor conjures a massive Cyclone that ''completely destroys'' several towns on the world map, killing countless civilians]].
** 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.
** 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.
** 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 ''VideoGame/LuminousArc'' and Sadie in the sequel, ''VideoGame/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 ''VideoGame/LostWinds'' gives you the ability to control, move, and attack with - you guessed it - wind!
* The titular monster hunters in ''VideoGame/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.
* [[VideoGame/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 ''VideoGame/{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'', we have Liebea, a [[{{Moe}} cute]], [[ShrinkingViolet shy]] pink-haired girl who's prone to PowerIncontinence in the form of summoning powerful storms.
** Luste Teuber from the same game is a childish girl who's energetic and jumps around the battlefield with speed while throwing sharp razor wind (which is sometimes huge).
* Creator/{{KOEI}} gives us the ''VideoGame/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 ''VideoGame/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.
* As the ''VideoGame/InazumaEleven'' games use the FourElementEnsemble, wind-themed players are fairly common. Notable examples include [[NumberTwo Kazemaru]] from the original series and [[TheHero Tenma]] from ''GO''.
* 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.
* In ''DoubleDragonNeon'''s sixth stage, the Killacopter attempts to blow the Lee brothers into a pit with its rotor wind.
* In Creator/{{Activision}}'s ''{{VideoGame/Oink}}'', the Big Bad Wolf uses his breath to blow away at the wall of bricks that you're trying to keep patched up to stay alive long before [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption the wolf finally breaks through and captures your pigs]].
* The DLC for ''VideoGame/{{BioShock|1}}'' adds the Sonic Boom plasmid.
* The [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Windblast]] magic in ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}''.
* The first of the three Emelas swords ''Videogame/YsVITheArkOfNapishtim'' is the wind sword Livart, which can generate tornadoes.
* One of the two witches in ''VideoGame/TheMatrixPathOfNeo'' has a banshee wail that can throw people, and you along with disorienting Neo, around and into walls.
* The TowerDefense game ''VideoGame/CanterlotSiege'' has Rainbow Dash, who throws out whirlwinds to attack.
* Joey Mallone from ''VideoGame/TheBlackwellSeries'' commands the power of light breezes. It's about as impressive as it sounds, and he mostly uses it to rustle curtains and mildly annoy the living. Evildoers beware.
* Previously in the original ''VideoGame/DefenseOfTheAncients'', [[VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} Alleria Windrunner]] is used as the class Windrunner, whereas she's a wind-enchanted archer. When the game has a sequel under Valve, ''VideoGame/{{Dota 2}}'', copyright issues strike, so she's replaced by Windranger Lyralei.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Smite}}'', previously, the Chinese Dragon King of Eastern Seas, Ao Kuang, has a lot of wind-based spells, but eventually, it was deemed that wind spells clashed with his lore being a sea-based Dragon, so eventually he got PutOnABus for awhile and his kit is taken by the Mayan Serpent of Nine Winds Kukulkan. Later on, Myth/JapaneseMythology's Susano was included and he's a swordsman that implements quick wind-like movement and slash as well as utilizing winds to either reposition himself, drag his enemy to him, or generate a dragging, damaging tornado.
* Introduced in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'', Rashid hails from the UAE (United Arab Emirates) and not only has an acrobatic fighting style, but he's able to whip up tornadoes and have control over wind in general.
* Popo in ''VideoGame/StellaGlow'' is the Wind Witch, allowing her to attack enemies with a whirlwind.
* The "Woosh" family of spells, originally called [[NonIndicativeName "Infernos"]], from ''VideoGame/DragonQuest''. The [[VideoGame/DragonQuestII Princess of Moonbrooke]] was the first character in the series to use Woosh spells, and later games made them the domain of the Priest class. ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIX'' introduced Kaswooshle, the strongest wind spell, which is usable by Luminaries. Paladins in the series often use wind-based magic and abilities as well, manifesting in the form of [[RazorWind vacuum blades]].
* Mina from ''VideoGame/BattleChefBrigade'' is skilled in wind magic, and can summon tornadoes to blow away and toss around monsters while hunting.
* ''VideoGame/BodyBlows'': Mike is a [[FightingClown seemingly unassuming businessman who works on Wall Street]] and fights in tournaments against a variety of street fighters, martial artists, robots, and aliens. His character profile at the start up of the games states "[[LargeHam Far from being]] [[SmallNameBigEgojust full of wind]], this executive really means business!" and indeed [[JustForPun he means business]]. He can even spin around like a tornado like WesternAnimation/{{Looney Tunes}}' Taz the Tasmanian Devil to dish out damage.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Zephyr Vanguardion of ''[[VisualNovel/FantasiaOtomeGameSeries Fantasia - Momento of Grand Finale]]''.
* Renzei "Falcon" Feng in ''VisualNovel/VillainousNights'' has the power to control wind, which he uses for flight and blades of air in addition to more general blasts of wind. He's also used his power to help him [[FastballSpecial throw a teammate at enemies]].

* Skogul's power in ''Webcomic/{{Earthsong}}''.
* Kei's power in ''[[http://www.revenant-braves.schala.net/ Circumstances of the Revenant Braves.]]''
* The Windmaster in ''Webcomic/{{Acrobat}}'' is a villainous version of this.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'':
** [[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''.
** After [[CameBackStrong ascending to the God Tiers]], John's 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.]] Then, of course, there was [[MagicMusic Pipe organkind]].
** [[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 ''Webcomic/AgentsOfTheRealm'', this is Paige's power, although rather than a FragileSpeedster, she's the ArcherArchetype.
* [[MeaningfulName Gale's]] natural superpower in ''Webcomic/{{Sidekicks}}'' is generating mini cyclones.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Strays}}'', [[http://www.straysonline.com/comic/102.htm what the fox woman deploys against Feral.]]
* ''Webcomic/{{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, Taffe thinks 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.]]
* ''Webcomic/{{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.
* One of the Waddle Dee Bros, Green, has powers over wind in "Webcomic/KirbyCardClash"

* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'':
** Winter. She's able to evoke cold wind with enough fine control to use it to fly
** Stormwolf, who is able to use wind to send an opponent flying or to fly himself, and is anything but a FragileSpeedster.
* [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Rinoa]] in the ''WebAnimation/DeadFantasy'' series.
* Rayte in ''Literature/TrintonChronicles'' had the ability to manipulate air in the form of ''green energy'' bands. He also could create sonic-booms, vacuums, and use [[RazorWind pressured wind]] to cut into foes and objects alike.
* Celestina Barbieri from ''Roleplay/FateNuovoGuerra'' specializes in wind and its sub-element, [[ShockAndAwe lightning]]. In particular, she uses it to increase her fighting efficiency by coating her sword in RazorWind.
* From the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'', there's Twister, Thunderstorm, Summer Storm, Summer Cloud, Archdruid, Cloud Dragon, Shu, Teja Vayu ("Swift Wind" in Hindi), Dust Devil, Gale, Wind, Breeze (the hero, not the villain), Breeze (the villain, not the hero), Maelstrom, Flurry, Hurricane, Sirocco, Tornado, Vetra, Venta, Kamikaze, Dark Wind, and Turbo.
* In ''Literature/ChaosFighters'', Air, Wind, and Sky exists as ''separate elements''.
* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', the supervillain Stormtiger can compress air into claws and then release it in gusts.
* Tornadoes in ''Literature/LightningDust'' have minor wind abilities, a partial explanation for their name.
* ''WebAnimation/DSBTInsaniT'': Autmn has wind powers, like creating updrafts and twisters.
** Not only are [[BearsAreBadNews Windears]] made of wind, but they can morph into things like vapor and twisters.
* ''WebAnimation/{{Dreamscape}}'': Jasmine has powers over wind, and like [[ShockAndAwe Soya]], she is very versatile with this power.
** Ahjeen's AnIcePerson, but he can create chilling winds too.
** Anjren, while in her robot suit, can send out a sideways cyclone from her chest cavity.
** [[KiManipulation Kai]] can blow a powerful gust of natural energy, oddly enough.
** Liz has incredible wind-based powers. A bit odd for a dragon.

* 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.
** In the 6th season, Brandon receives a new weapon that generates wind gusts when he twirls it.
** Nex's weapon is called The Halberd of the Wind, which he swings or twirls to create wind gusts and tornadoes.
* ''Franchise/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' has the mostly extinct Air Nomads, a highly spiritual people who were capable of "bending" the air. And not just them; their sky bison steeds were the ''original'' Airbenders.
** The original ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' is the story about, [[ProtagonistTitle well, 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'.
** SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'':
*** [[{{Mentor}} Tenzin]], [[CuteBookworm Jinora]], [[MotorMouth Ikki]], and [[UglyCute Meelo]] are the son and grandchildren of Avatar Aang and are all airbenders, as is Aang's successor, Avatar Korra. 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]]". Or in his next life, as the now-elderly Toph uses the same nickname with Korra!
*** The occurrence of Harmonic Convergence at the end of Season 2 released a mass of spiritual energy that gave airbending to a lot of random people, including [[BigBad Zaheer]], who uses airbending in far more aggressive ways than the mostly pacifistic Air Nomads ever did. [[spoiler:Such as [[AscendedFanon the one dangerous technique]] [[AscendedFridgeHorror long suspected by the fandom]], suffocation.]] On the more positive side, many of these new airbenders would join Aang's descendants to became the Air Nation, the successors to the Air Nomads.
* Linka of ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers'' is the Planeteer that Gaia gives power over wind.
* 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 ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'', as well as Optimus Prime, by way of the Magnus Hammer.
** And before them, Jetfire and Landmine of ''Anime/TransformersCybertron''. Landmine's Cyber Tempest attack is especially powerful. He needs to use his [[AmplifierArtifact Cyber Key]] to be able to do it. Jetfire just uses his jet turbines.
* Tornado Man from ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyHeroes''
* Hurricane Harry from ''WesternAnimation/CoolMcCool''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Hero 108}}'''s Mystique Sonia has the ability to spin her tongue around like a propeller, blowing enemies away.
* Xiao Fung, the wind demon of ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' ("Like breaking wind?" "Like breaking ''bones''!").
* Sonia the Hedgehog from ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'' is capable of this.
* All Pegasi in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' seem to have this, going hand-in-hand with their ability to manage weather.
** 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.
* Wind Dragon from ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'' had wind powers he could deliver from his hands or just summon.
* ''WesternAnimation/SheZow'' has her "Wind Winkers", which her eyelashes grow so that they can create hurricane like winds.
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has [[spoiler:Smoky Quartz and their one-to-three KillerYoYos]], which they can twirl fast enough to create powerful winds to blow away enemies [[spoiler:like Jasper]].
