Tor tipton

Tipton Tornado, rated EF-4


A tornado is a violently rotating column of air, in contact with the ground, either pendant from a cumuliform cloud or underneath a cumuliform cloud, and often (but not always) visible as a funnel cloud. Tornadoes come in many shapes and sizes, but they are typically in the form of a visible condensation funnel originating from the base of a huge storm cloud, whose narrow end touches the earth and is often encircled by a basal cloud of debris and dust. Most tornadoes have wind speeds less than 110 miles per hour (180 km/h), are about 250 feet (80 m) across, and travel a few miles (several kilometers) before dissipating. The most extreme tornadoes can attain wind speeds of more than 300 miles per hour (480 km/h), are more than two miles (3 km) in diameter, and stay on the ground for dozens of miles (more than 100 km).

Powers and Stats

Tier: Practically, 9-B to High 7-C; 9-B to 6-C output per second, 9-B to 6-A total

Origin: Real Life

Classification: Micro/mesoscale major whirlwind, weather phenomenon, natural disaster

Powers and Abilities: Creation of a violently rotating column of air which can carry and throw objects at high speeds, turning them into deadly and destructive projectiles

Attack Potency: Practically speaking, the damage caused by tornadoes ranges from Wall level to Large Town level. In terms of "kinetic energy output per second," tornadoes range from Wall level to Island level; in terms of "total kinetic energy output," tornadoes range from Wall level to Continent level

Speed: Below Average Human to Superhuman (117 km/hr) travel speed, Superhuman (65 km/hr) to Subsonic (515+ km/hr) wind speed

Lifting Strength: In terms of localized feats, at least Class 10 for tornadoes rated EF-3 or higher (EF-3 tornadoes have no difficulty throwing 2-3 ton automobiles dozens of meters and derailing trains; the 1995 Pampa EF-4 tornado moved machinery that weighted more than 13 tonnes, although it is unknown whether it was lifted or just pushed)

Stamina: A couple of seconds to 3.5 hours uninterrupted

Range: A couple of meters to over 350 kilometers

Note: High-end statistics were derived by combining the records for the widest, quickest, fastest (wind), and longest lived tornadoes and calculating them as a hypothetical tornado
