. Sonic Forces: Speed Battle
In gameplay, the Tornado can only be obtained at random from
Item Boxes by Charmy, Classic Sonic, Silver, Tails, Jet, All-Star Amy and Punk Zazz. As with most other Items, Metal Sonic can also use the Tornado if he uses the Steal Item to steal it from the aforementioned users.
Once obtained, the player can utilize the Tornado by pressing its icon on the bottom of the HUD. When used, the Tornado will drop its fans some distance ahead of the user's current location on all the lanes that the user is not currently on. If a character, including the user themselves, touches one of these fans, they will be left floating helplessly in the air temporarily while slowing down momentarily and also lose
Rings. In addition, rival characters affected by Tornado will have their lost Rings transferred to the user of the Tornado. To avoid the Tornado, the playable character must either jump over its fans or run in-between them.
The Tornado can also be upgraded by leveling the user up to level 4, 10 and 16 respectively. For each upgrade, the duration of the floating effect created when colliding with the Tornado will be increased.
Prior to version 0.1.0 of , the Tornado's visual effect displayed a taller updraft (although it could still be avoided by being jumped over). Sonic Forces: Speed Battle
