Wind Storm is Wind Man's signature weapon from Mega Man 6. It is featured in Mega Man Maker since the initial release.

When fired, the player will shoot a grey tornado. Up to three tornadoes can be on-screen at once. The tornado will drop to the ground and travel across solid terrain. If it hits a wall, the tornado will switch direction and continue moving until it defeats an enemy or despawns after approximately five seconds. If the tornado successfully lands a hit on an enemy or boss, it will pierce through—however, if the hit deals enough damage to kill the enemy, rather than immediately despawn, the tornado will engulf the enemy and carry it upwards off-screen. However, this does not apply to bosses. The windstorm will also engulf weak non-destructible projectiles and make them disappear.

Additionally, if the player fires a Wind Storm projectile and lands on one, they will be shot up into the air like a spring. This allows for the weapon to be used as a utility as well as a weapon, as the player can use the projectiles as spring-boards. With proper timing, if fired close to a wall, the player can also gain climb in height with repeated boosts from the tornadoes immediately bouncing off the wall and back to the player.

In the 1.0.5 version update of Mega Man Maker, Wind Storm received many changes and new features. Wind Storm projectiles can now bounce off walls and travel in the opposite direction, do not despawn upon making contact with an enemy it does not defeat, and will despawn weak non-destructible projectiles. The ability to bounce off walls was also added.
