Appears in

The Gale Rune (しっぷうの紋章, Shippū no Monshō) is a rune which appears in several titles of the Suikoden series.


The Gale Rune greatly increases the speed of the bearer's reflexes, as oppossed to their sprinting, making them act and react much faster in battle.

The rune is not very common in the Toran region, being unavailable in stores there. However, one of these runes can be found in Pannu Yakuta Castle. The rune was also extremely uncommon in Dunan, with a handful of beasts near Muse City dropping the rare rune.

  • The official Prima guidebook of Suikoden Tactics has an error. It lists a Cyclone Rune as a diggable item in the Merseto port battle, but it's instead a Gale Rune. This is most likely due to the similar meaning of both runes.
  • In Suikoden IV, the Gale Rune is one of the runes that have been programmed into the game but cannot actually be found without the use of hacking devices.
