When using Tornado, fans generating an updraft will be dropped some distance ahead of the user's current location on three of the lanes that the user is not currently on. When a playable character (including the user) touches a fan, they will get inflicted with a Wind attack, which causes the playable character to floats helplessly in the air and be slowed down. In addition, the victim's Rings will be absorbed by the Tornado's user. The Tornadoes can be upgraded for each individual user by leveling them to levels 4, 10 and 16, increasing the duration of this Item's floating effect.
To avoid Tornadoes, the player must either jump over them or run in between them.
Prior to Version 0.1.0, the Tornado's visual effect displayed a taller updraft (although it could still be avoided by being jumped over).
