Wind Storm (ウインドストーム Uindo Sutōmu) is Wind Man's special weapon. It sends out a grey tornado that creeps along the floor. Up to three tornadoes can be used at the same time. The tornadoes disappear when they hit an obstacle. Enemies defeated by it are sent flying up into the air; however they will not drop powerups if defeated in this manner. It also ignores the defenses of Flame Man's Flame Blast.

  • Wind Storm is an example of a weapon Mega Man obtains that does not resemble any of the corresponding boss's attacks, similarly to Heat Man and his weapon Atomic Fire.
  • Wind Storm's color scheme is identical to that of the Rolling Cutter, as well as the Bubble Lead, Dust Crusher and Wheel Cutter.
    • Interestingly, the movement path of Wind Storm is similar to that of the Bubble Lead.
