Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories - Sora's Story

A Heartless that flies about using its arms like propeller blades.

Whether moving or attacking, it's always spin, spin, spinning — but never seems to get dizzy.

Kingdom Hearts II

It attacks as it moves, so once it starts spinning, stop its movements with reaction commands.

Use Tornado Ride and grab the enemy for a free ride while attacking surrounding enemies.

The Tornado Step is an Emblem Heartless that is found in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts II. It is one of only three Heartless that debut in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, along with the Creeper Plant and Crescendo.


The Tornado Step has a very small, navy-blue body, emblazoned with the Heartless emblem. Two short legs can be seen at the bottom of the body, and a short, thin neck extends from the top to its round head, harboring two glowing, yellow eyes and a jagged maw. The Heartless wears a tall, conical, blue hat, with a bent tip and two yellow, spiral-like designs on the front. It is unclear whether the Heartless has arms extending from where its ears would be, or if the long, light-aqua colored extremities are actually part of the Heartless's hat. Black hands and yellow bangles can be seen at the end of the "arms".

In Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, the Tornado step experiences a very dramatic color change; its body and head now have a reddish tint, its hat is a light-orange, the spiral-like designs are now dark-orange, its "arms" are a light-yellow color, its hands are a reddish color, and the bangles it wears are green.

A tornado is a violent, rotating column of air. This highlights the Tornado Step's spinning movements and its wind-based attacks. The second part of the Tornado Step's name probably refers to the small steps that the Tornado Step makes while traveling by foot.

Where To Grind

Late-Game, many can be found in Olympus Coliseum, Cave of the Dead: Passage. They'll respawn quickly after travelling from there to Hade's Chamber and back.


Tornado Steps are not difficult enemies to defeat, though their spin attacks can get irritating. Physical attacks are all that is needed to beat them.


  • Jump Strike: Vertical spin attack
  • Jump Slap: Horizontal spin attack
  • Propeller Charge: Spinning-top charge

The Tornado Step can also heal when its HP is low.
