Wind Storm is Wind Man's signature weapon, originating from Mega Man 6. It is featured in Mega Man Maker as of version 1.0.0.

It sends out up to three small tornados that run along the floor when fired, changing directions when they hit a wall. They move fast enough to cross over one-tile wide gaps, and will remain onscreen for five seconds. It will pierce through any exposed enemy it touches, and if the player jumps on top of it, they will be boosted upward nine tiles. Any enemies defeated by Wind Storm will be carried up off the screen, and they will not drop any items this way. Dust Blocks and Ice Blocks can only be broken by this weapon if hit from the side, and it will be absorbed by Soccer Ball Jets unless they are in mid-flight.

Trivia

  • Wind Storm is the only weapon in Mega Man Maker to have its function changed in between updates; in this case the ability to pierce enemies, bounce off walls, and provide boosted jumps was added in version 1.0.4.
  • In Mega Man 6, deflected Wind Storms will change direction as they do upon hitting a wall. This was changed in Mega Man Maker to instead be deflected like any other weapon.
