of all the abilities merged into Tornado, Maelstrom probably has the best case to have its own page, as it is sometimes Water elemental. feel free to revert if you agree.
- consensus is that sometimes dealing water damage does not justify a page of its own --Adonzo 07:57, January 12, 2010 (UTC)
Seems VIICC/FFVIII/FFAB/FFLTnS all uses メイルシュトローム, which is still Maelstrom, but not THIS Maelstrom. Split?
That's interesting. ミールストーム == ... meal storm? 126.96.36.199 00:13, May 8, 2016 (UTC)
Bringing this back up...also if split, how to name other version of this ability?
Bringing this back up as FFRK just got the FFVIII version as a Soul Break, and it uses the same name as what's listed here. So split or not?
Bringing this back up...again...it shouldn't take a full year to figure out what to do with this...
Confirmation needed for:
So we have "Mill Storm" and "Maelstrom". "Maelstrom" could be under "Maelstrom (Edea ability)" since it's most commonly associated with her. "Mill Storm" could be under "Maelstrom (HP to single digit)". Still, we need to confirm quite a lot games.
Hope this helps.
Is there an article you think is of an exceptional quality? Vote for it here!
I was gonna say it's not "Mill Storm" because mill would likely be ミル. But then IX calls it ミルストーム -- but that's the exception. I don't know why "Mill Storm" would make any more sense. "Mealstorm" is a misreading or purposeful bastardisation of "Maelstrom". The letters are just switched in two places.
Regardless, most of the Japanese internet just seems to say it says "Maelstrom". "ミールストーム" actually shows up on the ja.WP page for Maelstrom as an alternate writing, although I'm sure that alternate writing originated from the FF series.
XIV has an enemy called メイルシュトローム, Waterspout in English. An ability called ミールストーム, Charybdis in English. An ability called 吸引, Charybdis in English. A grand company called 黒渦/黒渦団, Maelstrom in English. A place called 黒渦闘技場, Maelstrom in English. And an ability called 黒渦斬, Maelstrike in English. So compwicated.
