Tornado Tonion, originally known as Tornado Debonion (written alternatively as "Tornado Debonian"), is one of the eight Mavericks that is fought in Mega Man X7 infected with the Sigma Virus, courtesy of Sigma himself. Designed after an onion, he is the boss of the Radio Tower stage. His weapon, the Volt Tornado, allows him to generate an electrical whirlwind around his body. Upon getting his hands on the weapon, X can spawn a tornado that charges forwards. The tornado is strong and is the weakness of Splash Uofly.
Tornado Tonion is voiced by Jack Merluzzi.
Tornado Tonion is a silly, obnoxious Repliroid. He loves performances and having fun, and is easily disappointed when someone points out that Tornado isn't entertaining. However, Tornado is well aware that his group has gone Maverick, which leads him to ask for his own demise when X arrives on the scene.
Tornado Debonion is a fat Repliroid who looks like an onion, with a green conical head that is apparently based on an onion sprout. He is
Tornado hijacked a radio tower putting obnoxious messages through the radiowaves. Upon being confronted, he fights against either X, Zero, or Axl (If it's X he's fighting, though, Tornado reveals he regrets being controlled by The Professor and requests that he is killed.) and a fight ensues, where Tornado supposedly meets his demise.
In order to damage Tonion, the player must first destroy his plates, which regenerate over time. Tonion attacks mainly by spinning around, creating an electrified tornado around his body. He can also remove his plates and spin them around the arena or create an advancing wall. His weakness is the Gaea Shield, presumably because stone can block electricity and winds.
- Tornado is depicted with a pointed red nose in his artwork. This does not appear in the game.
- Tornado's Japanese surname, Debonion, comes from the term "onion" and the Japanese adjective debu (fat; Hiragana でぶ and Katakana デブ).
