Galactic Tornadoes are obstacles and enemies in Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2. They appear in the Dusty Dune Galaxy and Bowser's Galaxy Reactor. They are able to shoot Mario/ Luigi high in the air and they will make a propeller-like motion while soaring. If the player does not land high up, Mario or Luigi will slowly start to fall in the propeller movement. The player can activate any Galactic Tornado by shaking the Wii Remote. Galactic Tornadoes may be a relative to Tweesters, other tornado enemies found in the Dusty Dune Galaxy. In Super Mario Galaxy 2, Galactic Tornadoes do not appear in the Slipsand Galaxy (although the Slipsand is a desert themed galaxy) by rather in the Melty Monster Galaxy. They play the same role as in the Super Mario Galaxy.
