Twisters[1] are placeable wind-producing entities in Super Mario Maker 2. They are small white spheres with eyes, and in the 2D styles, have small hair-like protrusions around their bodies. They spin around along the ground producing a large Tornado above them, which can lift both the player and enemies.

There is also another entity in the game that functions the same as Twisters resembling a Fwoosh and Foo, having a mouth blowing the air upwards.
