Call forth a tornado to damage the surrounding area.

Description, Final Fantasy Tactics.

Twister (ツイスター, Tsuisutā?) is a recurring enemy attack in the Final Fantasy series. It usually does Wind-elemental damage to all enemies.

## Appearances

### Final Fantasy

Twister is an ability exclusive to Chaos. It deals heavy non-elemental damage to the entire party.

### Final Fantasy IX

Twister deals random Wind-elemental damage and is used by Deathguise, both versions of Tiamat, Silver Dragon, and Nova Dragon. It can be learned as a Blue Magic spell for Quina by eating a Red Dragon, Abadon, or the crystal version of the boss Tiamat fought only in the Crystal World. It costs 22 MP to use. It can't be reflected and works with Return Magic.

Twister uses the following formula to calculate damage:

$55 * \text{Rand}(1 .. [(Lv + Mag) - 1])$

Twister ignores the target's magic defense.

### Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

Twister is used during phase 4 of the battle against Twintania, the superboss at the end of Turn 5 of the Binding Coil of Bahamut. The spell places small green tornados at the feet of several randomly-chosen players, which instantly kill any player who touches them. This mechanic requires all players to move as soon as Twintania begins casting the spell, since the twisters are placed where the player was standing at the beginning of the cast.

### Final Fantasy Tactics

Ultima Demon is the only enemy that can naturally use Twister; however, Behemoth King can also use it when an ally with the Monster Skill ability is next to it. It does Wind damage that is equal to 1/3 of the target's max HP.

Twister is an ability used by Lilith. It halves the HP of enemies in an area, essentially making it an area version of Demi. It can be learned by Blue Mages, and costs 20 MP.

#### Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Twister returns as it did in the previous game, but is no longer a Blue Magic spell, instead being an enemy ability exclusive to the Lamia genus.
