The Windy is a Clow Card with the power to create and control wind. It is one of the four elemental cards, and as such it is one of the most powerful cards.

It is also one of the original nineteen cards from the manga series.


The Windy appears as an elegant, lissome fairy with blonde hair that is styled high and falls forward into two long strands, as well as a pair of large, magic wings, and feathered shoulders. Two green, wing-like shapes adorn her forehead. She appears to be naked, and is usually surrounded by yellow and green swirls of wind.

As a Sakura Card in the manga, Windy receives a star in between the winged decorations on her forehead as well as a new winged star above her chest.

In the Clear Card Arc, under Syaoran's command, the stars on her forehead and chest are replaced by crescent moons.


Windy is described as very docile and demure. Being one of the gentlest cards, Windy hates to fight and her magic is mainly used for non-attacking purposes.

Magic and Abilities[]

Wind Magic: The Windy's primary magic is to create strong winds. These winds can be used to blow away objects or bind creatures.

Fortune Telling: All Clow Cards have the ability to help their user predict the future. Their method of fortune-telling is similar to that of tarot cards. The interpretation of the message the Clow Cards relay depends on the magical power of the user.


CCS EP03 - The Windy

The main body of the Windy card.


Clow Cards arc[]

Windy is first seen in volume 1 of the manga, by which time it had already been captured. When the seal on the Book of Cards was broken, Windy is scattered along with the rest of the cards, yet because of its gentle nature, the Windy simply returned peacefully to the Clow Book. Sakura uses Windy to capture The Jump card, which is later used to comfort The Fly prior to its capture as Sakura failed in using the Windy in capturing the Fly.[1]

Sakura Card Arc[]

In Volume 8 (Chapter 33) of the manga, she is transformed when Eriol creates a thick fog and she uses Windy to disperse it.

Clear Card Arc[]

Windy, like the other Sakura Cards, turned "clear" (blank) and are rendered completely powerless.

It is later revealed that the Cards were with Syaoran in order to protect Sakura, as her magical powers had grown enormously, which could be detrimental to her. With the collaboration of the cards, who also wish to protect Sakura, Syaoran is able to rewrite the contract of the cards, replacing Sakura’s name on them with his name and allowing him to utilize their powers, which essentially makes him the new master of the cards.

When the Cards pass under Syaoran's possession, they receive his Moon powers and the Crescent Moon symbol appeared on their forms. The cards moved by their love for Sakura and their desire to protect her. Left with Syaoran through a spell arranged by his mother to prevent Sakura's powers from growing further while creating the Clear Cards; but doing so is extremely exhausting for him and takes longer than desired. However, when the world is rewritten by a taboo magic, the cards return to Sakura's possession as if they had never left.

Syaoran discreetly used Windy during the battle against the Blaze card to immobilize it.

Windy appear along with the other Cards at Syaoran's house explaining to Cerberus and Yue the reasons for their departure. Later they all appear in front of Sakura to explain that they wanted to help Syaoran protect her.

Syaoran used it again to stop the Sakura Cards for being taken away.


Clow Cards arc[]

In the anime, Sakura inadvertently used The Windy to scatter the Clow Cards, as she powered a huge whirlwind in her basement when she called the card's name. Windy is then the only Clow Card that Sakura does not have to capture, as it is in her hand at the time the other Cards scatter. Sakura uses Windy to successfully bind and capture The Fly (which failed in the manga) and several other Clow Cards such as The Shadow, The Watery, The Sleep and The Firey.[2] It is also utilized in the first movie when it serves as a distraction to capture The Arrow.

Sakura uses Windy to defeat Yue after she receives her new wand and her second chance in the Final Judgment, despite the fact that Windy is one of the cards under his jurisdiction.[3]

Sakura Cards arc[]

Windy is transformed in Episode 53 when Sakura uses her to try to catch the frantic Dash. She is unsuccessful at first but manages it later on.[4]

In Episode 69, when Sakura battles Eriol, Sakura uses Windy to try to defeat Eriol, as it overpowered Yue in the Final Judgment, but Eriol easily disperses Windy, stating that the same strategy she used to capture Yue won't work on him.[5]

Appearances in the movie[]

In the second movie, Windy is one of the last cards that Sakura still possesses, and she uses it in a desperate attempt to retrieve the cards that The Nothing stole from her, but even Windy's mighty winds were unable to return the stolen Sakura Cards.[6]


Season One[]

Season Two[]

Season Three[]

Clear Card Arc[]


Due to her dependence on Yue, Windy is governed, like him, by Eastern magic and the Moon, as are the group of card she commands:



  • Windy is one of the cards Sakura uses the most, being the first card she had.
  • In the Final Judgement, she used The Windy, though she had not transformed it, Sakura managed to use the card with her Star Staff rather than the Clow Staff.
  • Windy's design also resembles that of a moth.
  • The kanji at the top of the card: 風, (Pronounced 'Kaze') can mean 'wind', 'draft' or 'breeze' in Japanese.
