Whirlwind in Final Fantasy XIII-2.

Whirlwind (旋風, Tsuji Kaze? or つむじ風, Tsumuji Kaze?), also known as Gust or Windstorm, is a recurring spell and ability in the Final Fantasy series. It does damage to all enemies, sometimes Wind-elemental and other times non-elemental. In some games, Whirlwind is an alternate name for Tornado.
