Etymology Edit

The Thunderbird is a giant mythological bird in Native-American folklore.

It is described as a large bird, capable of creating storms and thundering while it flies. The clouds are pulled together by its wingbeats and the sound of thunder is made by the flap of its wings, sheet lightning flashes from its eyes when it blinks, and individual lightning bolts are made by glowing snakes that it carries around with it.

It is/was highly revered and considered very powerful.

Trivia Edit

  • The Thunderbird spirit is the only one that is never seen or fought ingame, having already been acquired by Shania before the start of the game.
