Battle

Etymology

Tonadu's Japanese name is from the French word for tornado, "tornade". This is unrelated to the Diver Nest's attack "Tornade Wave", which is just a mislocalization of "Tornado Wave".

A tornado is a violently rotating column of air that is in contact with both the surface of the earth and a cumulonimbus cloud or, in rare cases, the base of a cumulus cloud.
