Red Tornado is a large red robot that has a golden yellow arrow going down his head. He has yellow eyes and a yellow mouth and has an arrow with a circle featuring a T on the end on his chest and yellow spots on his two elbows. He wears a long blue cape with a yellow border.
He is voiced by Maurice LaMarche in the English version of the cartoon.
In Welcome to Super Hero High, Red Tornado appears standing inside Super Hero High School as Principal Waller introduces the school for a promotional video. In Power Outage, he instructs a Flyer's Ed class, and asks Cheetah if she will be joining them, to which she replies no, and has a doctor's note which prevents him from making her move from her catnap. He instructs his students to put on their safety belts, and orders Bumblebee to fly the course first. After she does, he then instructs Wonder Woman to do it next, with high expectations for her, as she "she cares about the grace and art of flying as much as" he does. After her attempt goes poorly due to Cheetah's sabotage, he calls her run as a "lamentable display". In Fall Into Super Hero High, he appears in archive footage of the previous episode in Harley Quinn's video, watching as Wonder Woman's emerges through the flying course tunnel after her poor run.
In the special Super Hero High, Red Tornado appears in front of the school with the other students and staff to welcome Supergirl as a new student. Later, as Batgirl is announced as a new student at the school during the ceremony celebrating the school's victory over the Female Furies, her father Commissioner Gordon tells Red Tornado that he is both very proud and very nervous, to which he nods. In License to Fly, he informs Batgirl that she cannot fly her new batjet without a license and instructs her flying exam. He fails her after she botches each task on the test before walking away. When Batgirl attempts to practice flying her jet with the help of her flying classmates, he lands on her jet and gives her detention for flying without a license before carrying the jet back to the school. In the film Hero of the Year, he makes a background appearance standing with Lady Shiva in front of the school during preparations for the Hero of the year ceremony. Later, as Dark Opal and Eclipso try to take over the school, he participates in the battle against their shadow army.
In Techless Tuesday, Batgirl lands her Batjet in front of Red Tornado in front of the school, who promptly confiscates her keys and revokes her flyer's license for flying 282 in a 280 zone. It is later implied that he and the various other SHHS teachers who confiscated Batgirl's equipment and gadgets in the episode were actually Mrs. Clayface in disguise, hoping to use her technology to break her husband out of Arkham Asylum. In Gorilla Warfare, he appears in a gorilla costume emerging from a door to the gymnasium during a Phys Ed class, asking Coach Wildcat if the class is prepared for his entrance to stage a kidnapping of Vice Principal Grodd for a student drill, as he has not heard his cue. The drill is aborted when Grodd is actually kidnapped by members of Grodd's former gorilla army. In It's a Superful Life, he attends the winter holiday tree ceremony in the school foyer where Big Barda accidentally hits him with a snowball and later stands with the other SHHS faculty as Principal Waller wishes Happy Holidays to the students.
In The Wobble, Red Tornado appears as a judge for an SHHS artistic gymnastics practice event in the school gym, along with Principal Waller and Vice Principal Grodd. They give perfect ten scores to Supergirl and Bumblebee for their balance beam routines, but only a 9.9 to Wonder Woman when she makes a slight mistake on hers. Bleez then shows up and attacks the judges by blowing them with a giant fan construct before pinning them to a wall, accusing them of robbing her of a perfect score during a previous meet with Korugar Academy and subsequently getting banned for life over her anger to their scores. After she is defeated, she admits via Wonder Woman's Lasso of Truth that she is not angry at the judges but at herself for making a mistake.

Wonder Woman eventually captures him in her Lasso of Truth, telling him that she learned from him (in her timeline) how to fight while flying. After the students and Liberty Belle attempt to escape through the time machine back to the past to restore their timeline, he chases after them again per Vandal Savage's orders, but the alternate-timeline Bumblebee battles them to hold them off.
