Wind Manipulation (風を操る, Kaze o ayatsuru) is a NEXT ability which grants the user control over wind. The user is able to create gusts of wind and even tornado-sized funnels. Milder winds can be used to slow the descent of falling civilians, whereas stronger ones can be used as a destructive force. The user can also create compressed balls of wind to use as offensive projectiles. It would appear that this ability does not grant the user control over naturally-occurring winds, only those the user has created. Apparently, this ability doesn't allow flight - only levitation. Sky High achieves flight by levitating himself with this power and utilizing a jetpack to maneuver.
