The Tornado (トルネード) rush consist of a series of respawning enemies that spawn and float around the middle of the screen, and acts as the Sub-Boss of Stage 5 in the Spectrum port of Nemesis, and appears before the other exclusive Sub-Boss of the same stage in the MSX port.
The Tornado's do not particularly attack the player, merely floating around. Sticking towards the left of the screen renders the player completely safe, providing they keep shooting. After a short while, the entire Rush will vanish, and the player will face the Big Core.
In the MSX version, the player must also fight the Tyran Pace rush before taking on the Big Core.
