"I call that move the "Whirlwind of Destiny.""
―Petro[src]

The Whirlwind of Destiny was a lightsaber training move that was developed by Petro, a human male Jedi Youngling, during the Clone Wars.

Description[edit | edit source]

Whirlwind of Destiny was designed for the user to be flexible, spinning his/her body and lightsaber around like an actual whirlwind.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Whirlwind of Destiny move was created by a nine-year old fan named Brendon Lake, who won Hasbro's "Join the Jedi" contest with that exact maneuver. Lake's winning entry was animated into the show, and he received screen credit for it.
