- "Twists of Fury!"
- —Polar Whirlwind's official catchphrase
Whirlwind is an air dragon with unicorn ancestry – two species that could not be more opposite in nature, which made her never quite fit in with either group. Other dragons were envious of her beauty and grace, while her unicorn brethren shunned her for her unusual appearance and ability to fly. But Whirlwind found peace within the dark and stormy clouds, where she learned to harness the tempest power within her. Despite her turbulent youth, she remained pure of heart and was the first to defend both dragons and unicorns when the trolls began hunting them, unleashing her ferocity in a brilliant and powerful rainbow that could be seen throughout many regions of Skylands. From that day forward, evil-doers would quake when dark clouds brewed, and run from the rainbow that followed the storm.
- If not counting the Legendaries, Polar Whirlwind and Royal Double Trouble are the only two alternate forms of the Spyro's Adventure Skylanders who first appeared in Giants.
- She bears a resemblance to Princess Celestia from My Little Pony Friendship is Magic.
- She is compatible to Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, but only as the original Whirlwind instead of her alternate form.
- Despite some areas in Giants making her appear to look blue, she is not, as it is only the reflections.
