Thunderbird is an Electricity-elemental DSS Attribute Card in Castlevania: Circle of the Moon. It produces lightning effects, such as an electric whip or allowing the player to hurl lighting balls.

The player may also summon the Thunderbird itself by combining it with the Uranus card. This is arguably the most devastating spell in the game; lightning bolts are summoned from the top, traversing through the entire screen (and even outside of it), hitting any enemies which happen to be in their way. These bolts can also pass through multiple enemies.
