Appears in

The Cyclone Rune (旋風の紋章, Senpū no Monshō, Whirlwind Rune) is a rune which appears in many games in the Suikoden series.


The Cyclone Rune is one of the runes of the five elements. Its lower order variant is the Wind Rune. This rune allows its bearer to manipulate a mixture of both attack and support magic. Its effects mainly help to recover the stamina of the rune bearer and their allies.

When attached to a weapon, it affixes the wind element to the weapon bearer's physical attacks. Sometimes attaching it to a weapon could instead increase the chances of the wielder repelling a magic attack.
