Tornado (トルネド, Torunedo?), also known as Weak, Wind, and W. Wind, is a recurring spell and ability in the Final Fantasy series. It most often deals strong Wind-elemental damage, but may also reduce targets to single digit health.
Tornado, called Wind in the NES version, is a Level 8 White Magic spell that reduces the target's HP to single digits. It is bought in Eureka for 60,000 gil and can be used by the enemies Unei's Clone and Unei. It has a 40% accuracy and can target one or all enemies.
Tornado is also a Terrain skill used in the sky terrain in the NES version of Final Fantasy III. It deals Wind damage to all enemies.
Tornado, called Weak in the SNES version and Wind in the PS version, is a Black Magic spell that affects one target, reducing the target's HP to single digits for 25 MP. Palom learns this spell at level 48, and Rydia learns it at level 51 in the original releases and at level 58 in DS/iOS/Android release. It has a casting time of 2 and an accuracy of 75 in the SNES/PS/GBA/PSP releases and 70 in DS/iOS/Android releases.
Tornado returns as a Black Magic spell. The imposter Rydia learns it at level 51 while Palom learns it at level 48, but Rydia doesn't have the spell when she participates in the final battle. It reduces a single target's HP to critical level at the cost of 25 MP.
Tornado lowers the target's HP to HP Critical and costs 25 MP to cast. It is learnable by Palom (level 45) and Rydia (level 58), while Fusoya starts with the spell. Tornado is also used by Strato Avis, Gargoyle, Dark Elf, Ultima Weapon, and the Mysterious Girl.
Tornado, called W. Wind in the Super NES release, is an offensive spell learned from the Esper Midgardsormr at a x1 rate. It costs 75 MP and it reduces everyone's HP (including allies') to 6.25% of their current HP. Tornado can be cast by Level 60 Magic, Level 90 Magic, Master Tonberry, Rest, Ultima Weapon, Storm Dragon in the Dragon's Den, Kaiser Dragon, and Omega Weapon.
Tornado is found in the Contain Magic Materia once it reaches level three, and has a spell power equal to 6.5625x the base magic damage. It deals Wind-elemental damage and can cause Confuse at the cost of 90 MP. The chance of inflicting the target with Confusion is 32%. It is the only player-available Wind-elemental spell in the game.
Tornado is the higher-level version of Aero and inflicts Wind-elemental damage on all opponents. It can be drawn and cast at enemies or junctioned to stats. Casting Tornado in battle increases compatibility with Pandemona by 1, Quezacotl by 0.6, Eden by 0.4 and with Bahamut by 0.2, but lowers compatibility with Brothers by 0.8.

Tornado is the name of Chaos's ultimate attack. A Wind-elemental attack, its damage is equal to 90% of the target's max HP, capped at 9,999 in the original version.
In the Japanese version, Chaos's ultimate attack is named Hurricane, and Tornado is the name for Chaos's unique weaker Wind attack to single target.
Tornado is one of the five ultimate spells Lightning can obtain alongside Burst, Freeze, Flare and Ultima. Though it is difficult to obtain, it works according to Lightning's HP (the higher the HP, the more powerful it is).
Tornado used to be a high level spell for Conjurers (Rank 44), but was removed from the game in later patches after the battle and job systems were adjusted.
