Wind is one of the four breath abilities used by Cynder in The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon. This was one of the natural elements Malefor learned in his earlier days.


The symbol of Wind looks like a white swirl of wind on a background of gray-blue. It is Cynder's most useful element (in basic form).


Primary Wind

  • Cyclone: Cynder can unleash her wind element that can summon a powerful gust of wind that blows enemies off the edge.
  • Super Cyclone
  • Ultimate Cyclone

Secondary Wind

  • Twister: Cynder can unleash her wind element to transform into a swirling tornado that spits deadly debris
  • Super Twister
  • Ultimate Twister


Using Cyclone and Twister will leave the enemies body coated in Wind magic, making them levitate up in the air, allowing Cynder to gain an advantage to attack them.



  • Surprisingly, Wind is one of the elements that is not sinister and dark, like Poison, Fear, and Shadow.
  • Cynder's true element is implied to be Wind.[1]
  • According to lead concept artist Jared Pullen, the wind element came from an entity of light that created the other elements (Fire, Electricity, Ice, Earth and Water).[1]
