"There is a wind that is quick and destructive. A violent spinning vortex of power that knows no fear and cannot be stopped. This special wind is known as...tornado."
A tornado, commonly referred to as a twister, whirlwind, or a cyclone is a violent rotating column of air that is in contact with both the Earth and a cumulonimbus cloud. They come in many shapes and sizes, but takes the typical shape of a condensation funnel.
The narrow end of the funnel that touches the earth is surrounded by debris of all kind.
In Tornado Outbreak, the player takes control of a young air elemental named Zephyr who has the ability to create a tornado.
The tornado starts off small only able to pick up tiny objects ranging from flowers to rocks, clotheslines to even small animals. Each item sucked into the tornado gradually increased the meter on the Category Level.
Once completely filled up, the tornado will grow larger. The larger the tornado is, the more powerful it's able to quickly destroy anything in the player's path. In addition to destruction, the tornado is also capable of draining water from small ponds.
The tornado comes in two different colors. Zephyr, the main character has a blue tornado while the second player (Wind Warrior) has a red tornado.
- Originally, the tornado was going to constantly shrink unless the player keeps moving. Should the tornado shrink entirely, Zephyr and or the Wind Warrior will faceplant the ground before getting up.
- A handful of the tornado's sound effects were altered recordings of a tiger roaring.
