Cyclone in Dissidia Final Fantasy and Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy.

Cyclone (たつまき, Tatsumaki?), also known as Whirlwind, Twister, Tornado, and Storm, is a recurring ability in the Final Fantasy series. Usually exclusive to enemies, it deals wind-elemental damage. In earlier games, Cyclone was called Tornado, but had its name changed in remakes of these games.

Another Cyclone exists that uses the name (サイクロン, Saikuron?), however both abilities are similar in that they are both offensive wind-elemental attacks. This ability appears in Final Fantasy III (3D remakes only), Final Fantasy XI, Final Fantasy XII, Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings, Final Fantasy XIII, Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy, and Final Fantasy Airborne Brigade.
