Blow You Away
"Long ago, a storm was heading toward the city of Quin'lat. The people sought protection within the walls, all except one man who remained outside. I went to him and asked what he was doing. 'I am not afraid,' he said. 'I will not hide my face behind stone and mortar. I will stand before the wind and make it respect me.' I honored his choice and went inside. The next day, the storm came; and the man was killed. The wind does not respect a fool."
—Kahless, Star Trek: The Next Generation
This is another part of the Elemental Powers, mainly dealing with wind. It doesn't always mean Razor Wind, but includes the power to manipulate winds, such as blowing the enemy away, creating tornadoes, or used as a free Flight power. Any character who uses this is almost guaranteed to land in the role of a Fragile Speedster. Sometimes, this power is a natural extension for those with Super Speed, usually running around in circles very quickly to create a tornado.
May overlap with (or be the in-universe justification of) sound powers and deadly music. Often green. Wind from Beneath My Wings is a Sub-Trope.
Also, compare Everything's Better with Spinning
Not to be confused with Blown Across the Room.

- Also, Kensei from the Vizard. It is interesting to note that his release command is "Futtobase", or "Blow it away"
- Senna from Bleach: Memories of Nobody has a wind type Zanpakuto named Mirokumaru which can control wind and create tornados. She even rides on top of a tornado at one point.
- In his Resurrección form, Privaron Espada 103, Dordonii Alessandro Del Socacchio, can release tornadoes/cyclones from his legs.
- Kyoraku Shunsui arguably has wind and shadow based abilities, but his gimmick isn't the element he wields, but their...ahem...unusual form: they are based on traditional children's games.
- Yaiba's Big Bad, Onimaru, wields the power of the Fujin Katana, which allows him to use tornadoes, Razor Wind, and mighty gusts of wind. Later, Yaiba himself gain this power.
- The Windy card of Cardcaptor Sakura. By virtue of being the first card introduced and a powerful one to boot, it is essentially her signature card.
- Phoenix Ikki from Saint Seiya can create small tornadoes...on fire.
- His brother, Andromeda Shun, has more traditional wind powers, but he mostly uses his trusty chains in battle.
- Haruka, aka Sailor Uranus of Sailor Moon, though, since her attack is named "World Shaking", a lot of people mistake her powers for earth.
- According to the artbooks, so can Sailor Jupiter: she can create hurricanes and cyclones in the manga.
- Limdo/Uruki from Fushigi Yugi: Genbu Kaiden is known as the "Merciless Wind Slasher". Guess what his signature power is. However, don't piss him off: after suffering a Heroic BSOD when his bodyguard and lifelong companion Soren died in a Heroic Sacrifice, he turns himself into a friggin' tornado.
- Technically, anyone with any skill in Air Gear since all power is based on wind, but mainly Ikki, Ringo, Agito, and Sora and Nike, after the former's Heel Face Turn.

- Hayate from Prétear, the Leafe Knight of Wind.
- To some degree, Koushirou Chikuma from Basilisk.

- This forms a major point in Windy Tales.
- Kazuma Yagami from Kaze no Stigma is an incredibly powerful wind mage, partially (but not entirely) because he's one of the legendary Contractors who's formed a pact with the elemental god of wind. To put that in perspective, the members of the Kannagi Clan, including his cousin, Ayano Kannagi, are highly skilled users of fire magic because their distant ancestor was a Contractor with the elemental god of fire.
- The Ougi clan, and especially it's successor, Ougi Shichirou, from Kekkaishi: Flight - check, Razor Wind - check, creating giant tornados - check, and once, he reduced a small shrine to dust in an instant using his wind powers.
- Erik the Filler villain from One Piece can grow claws and create tornadoes with them.
- Actually, that falls strictly under Razor Wind; the Devil Fruit he ate is the Kama Kama no Mi, or Sickle-Sickle Fruit, which lets him create wind as sharp as swords.
- Played straight with Franky, who can use his Cyborg enhancements to fire wind with the force of a cannonball.
- It speculated by fans that Dragon has an ability connected with controlling wind or weather. When he rescues Luffy in Loguetown he is accompanied by a strong storm that saves his son from Buggy and helps Straw Hats escape. Wind blows away flames, opening a path to his ship for survivors from the Gray Terminal as well.
- Hayate the Combat Butler's 'ultimate' attack doesn't quite fit this trope, but it creates a gust of wind below him (those with skirts be warned) to propel him into the air for a powered punch.
- Tabitha (or better said, Princess Charlotte Heléne de Orléans) from The Familiar of Zero.
- One of the lewd Blue Gaurdians from Rave Master. Power Perversion Potential ensues.

- Vento of the Front in A Certain Magical Index has the power over wind among God's Right Seat, and her ability, God's Divine Punishment, deprives anyone who is hostile towards her of oxygen.
- When Saten briefly becomes an esper in A Certain Scientific Railgun, her ability turns out to have something to do with air manipulation, demonstrated by her spinning some leaves above her palm in a miniature cyclone. Supplementary materials state Saten's power is the same as Kongo's, "Aero Hand", but at Level 0.
- Also, Kongo's "Aero Hand" ability causes whatever she touches to be violently propelled away by a rocket thruster-like gust of wind. And we're not talking about small fry; her first on-screen use of it involves lobbing a truck at two helicopters, nailing both. The rest of the battle she spends running around, throwing mooks in Powered Armor like ragdolls. Though it was kinda foreshadowed by her constantly playing around with a fan.
- In Inukami!, Kaoru's specialty is wind magic. Though, oddly, he invokes the 'White Mountain God' to do it.
- In Yes! Pretty Cure 5, this is Milky Rose's element of choice.

- In Keepers of the Elements, Lindsay has this as her Element.
- Macroburst and Terrordactyl in Rise of the Galeforces.
- The Wheel of Time generally averts this even though it has an elemental system, as Air is generally used for telekinesis-like effects instead of wind effects.
- In the Codex Alera, everyone bonds with one or more "furies" of an element, one of which is wind. Wind furies grant Flight and speed to powerful crafters, but don't work well in enclosed or underground spaces, and salt hurts them. A Knight Aeris without any significant furycrafting besides wind (such as Amara) also falls straight into Fragile Speedster territory. Windcrafting is also extremely useful for spying, too, as a windcrafter can cause the air to bend light to generate impromptu telescopes or to conceal people or objects, or to generate fields to hush out noise. In one extreme case, a team of Knights Aeris actually used their ability to bend light to create a giant magnifying glass that focused sunlight into an impromptu Death Ray that swept an entire bridge clean of invading Canim.
- In The Dresden Files, Harry Dresden uses wind magic almost as often as fire magic, maybe even more often but to less destructive effect.
- Less? Tell that to the napalm firing Renfields in Blood Rites.
- Elaine, in what is almost certainly a Shout-Out to The Mighty Thor, twirls one of her foci, a chain, to summon a powerful whirlwind.
- Harry does the same (with his staff) one book before, creating a tornado that picks up the debris of a battle and promptly slices/pulps a lot of very powerful creatures.
- In Alexander Pope's The Rape of the Lock, as part of their Personality Powers, coquettes turn into airy sylphs upon death. They also have the ability to manipulate air — but not to any great effect, as Belinda barely notices the faint breeze on her neck that is the top sylph trying to warn her that Doom is Nigh.
- In Kingdom Keepers, Maleficent gets this added to her bag of tricks, though she uses it as a scare tactic more than anything.
- The titular Wind Witch of Susan Dexter's Valadan series had this power. At the climax of the book she calls up a hurricane which completely destroys the sea raiders that had been threatening them.
- In Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian story "The Scarlet Citadel", Pelias explains that he is calling on air spirits to form Conan's transport.
- The fifth and last introduced main character from Anthony Horowitz's The Power of Five series, Scarlett, has powers over the weather, including the wind. This first manifests itself when she unconsciously brings down an awesomely powerful hurricane onto the Necropolis and, with concentration, is able to lead her friends through it unscathed.
- In Devon Monk's Dead Iron, Cedar's arrival at the mine is announced by dust devils that form without any wind.
- Trisana Chandler in Tamora Pierce's Circle quartets has the ability to control weather, including earthquakes, heat, lightning, and wind. When traveling to a hot country, she used her breezes to pick up rumors, cool herself, lift herself to the top of a tower, block somebody's path, etc.
- In Shadow Ops, aeromancy is one of the "legal" elemental schools of magic. The school not only allows for control of wind and flight, but it also allows the aeromancer to generate lighting and control storms.

- The Maple Story Knight of Cygnus Windbreaker class is composed of archers that use the power of the wind. One of their skills involves use of a magical wind that makes them immune to physical attacks, and wind-based attacks used in this state have their attack power increased. A different skill turns all neutral attacks into wind-based attacks, including their More Dakka and Rain of Arrows. They are generally more Glass Cannons rather than Fragile Speedsters, as they are quite slow and have low health compared to the other Knights of Cygnus.

- Kushala Daora from Monster Hunter definitely fits here. It's known as the elder dragon of wind, and with good reason. It can generate a wind barrier around itself which will knock hunters off their feet if they get too close, which can complicate things for melee hunters. It has a breath weapon befitting its nature. Instead of fire or lightning, it fires blasts of concentrated hurricane-force winds, capable of doing heavy damage and throwing a hunter 10~15 feet into the air.

- It appears with greater regularity in the Samurai Warriors series, where the available elements include ice, fire, lightning, demon, and, as per this trope, wind.

- After ascending to the God Tiers, his control over wind got even stronger. His first trick after this? Making a car fly while inside it. Tell me you wouldn't do that if you had the ability. And from there, he just tops himself again and again. Three words: TORNADO. PLANETARY. DRILL. The God Tiers are clearly not hyperbole.

- In Sequel Series The Legend of Korra: Tenzin, Jinora, Ikki, and Meelo are a family of Airbenders descended from Aang, who instruct Korra, the current Avatar, in Airbending. The fact that all of these are related to Aang in some way or another (the first four being his descendants and the latter being his reincarnation) definitely helps.
- Linka of Captain Planet and the Planeteers.
- Raimundo in Xiaolin Showdown.
- Despite them commonly being Fragile Speedsters, wind elements probably packs the biggest punch of all the characters in the show (literally and with regard to power).
- Have you seen the Final Showdown? He knocks out all the bad guys by himself (who pretty much rule the alternate timeline) once, then completely takes them down while injured, using their own evil statues, all the while surrounded by a holy glow!
- Hay Lin from W.I.T.C.H.
- Jetstorm from Transformers Animated, as well as Optimus Prime, by way of the Magnus Hammer.
