— Figure description from Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Storm Tornado is an Evolved Copy Ability based on Tornado that made its debut in Kirby and the Forgotten Land. This ability gives Kirby a Valkyrie-style crest with a black tornado behind it, which regularly flashes with electricity. Kirby has a wider range for his tornado attack like Fleur Tornado, but can now strike enemies with lightning after his attack. In addition, any enemies caught in Kirby's tornado will be flung towards any other nearby foes within range when the attack finishes.

The blueprint for Storm Tornado can be found in the stage Gathering of the Beast Council, in a small nook under the platform with the roller coaster on it. Storm Tornado is required to play the Treasure Road stage Whirl 'Em Away! Storm Tornado Trial. Storm Tornado is the last second-level Evolved Ability that can be obtained (assuming they are obtained in order).


All names are conjectural.

Storm Tornado moveset 
Move Button execution Description
Storm Tornado Attack B or press and hold B Kirby spins around and creates a vortex, allowing him to move more quickly and float in the air. Enemies and objects caught along the way are carried through the vortex until the move ends. This move will also strike lightning at nearby enemies.
Storm Hyper Tornado B during Storm Tornado Attack or hold B (to execute Storm Tornado Attack) and release or rotate the Left Stick during Storm Tornado Attack Kirby ends his vortex and causes a whirlwind that blows away any enemies hit by it, also flinging away any enemies or objects caught in the vortex previously, as well as a burst of lightning. Defeated enemies flung away from the attack will home in on and hit nearby undefeated enemies.

The Tornado ability has the power to pull enemies or stars into its cyclone! If you pick up a bunch of objects, you can launch them back out with B and hit other enemies!
