Non-Final Fantasy appearances
Other Square Enix titles
Tornado, known as Weak in English, first appeared outside of the Final Fantasy series in SaGa 3 (known as the Final Fantasy Legend III in the west) as a late-game White Magic spell. Like the earlier Final Fantasy titles, Weak lowers an enemy's HP to critical levels when used. The spell was removed from the game's Japanese-exclusive 3D remake.
Tornado also appears as a recurring magic attack in the Kingdom Hearts series, often being an ability exclusive to Sora and Ventus. It originally appeared in both Chain of Memories and Re:Chain of Memories as a sleight combination attack, while Birth by Sleep and Dream Drop Distance feature it as a late-game magic command. It creates a large whirlwind that draws in enemies to deal damage over several seconds, and in the latter two, can be moved with the analog stick.
Tornado appears as the strongest wind-elemental Red Magic in Bravely Default II. Referencing Final Fantasy XI, Tornado serves as the final form of the game's Aero spells, dealing massive wind-elemental damage to a target. The series features another recurring Tornado ability in titles associated with the first Bravely Default, but this attack is known as (トルネード, Torunēdo?), using the common five character katakana spelling of the English word, while the spell in Bravely Default II uses the recurring four character name of the Final Fantasy spell.
Non-Square Enix titles
Tornado has also made cameo appearances or has been referenced in some titles not associated with Square Enix. Shantotto uses the Final Fantasy XI version of Tornado during her boss and raid encounters in Granblue Fantasy. The ability deals multiple wind attacks to all party members.
Behind the scenes
The spell known as Tornado uses the series's tradition of four character for spell names, being (トルネド, Torunedo?). Despite having similar names in both English and Japanese, the abilities known as Tornado in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- and the Final Fantasy VII Remake are considered seperate abilities from the recurring spell, using five character names instead in Japanese. The ability used by the G Enforcers is known as (トーネイド, Tōneido?); while the enemy ability used by the Lesser Drake in the Final Fantasy VII Remake is known as (トルネード, Torunēdo?). The latter spelling was also used for the Tornado abilities in Vagrant Story and the defunct mobile title, Guardian Cross.
In addition, several abilities known as Tornado in English are in actuality different abilities in the original Japanese. Notable examples include the Japanese Twister Feral Link in Final Fantasy XIII-2, and the Cyclone enemy abilities of the Final Fantasy Legend titles. Depending on the title, the reasons for these changes in English releases are likely due to either space limitations, interpretations of the original Japanese word, or creative choices from the game localization teams.
