The Fujita Pinnacle is a twenty-league tall, four-league wide stationary vortex on the planet of Vyctor 5, rotating counterclockwise. The eye is safe and contained the Fujita Facility. It blocks most ground-base surveillance, scanning and transmissions, making the area within quite secret, free from the prying eyes of those at Lookout Plateau.

Despite its size, it is not easily visible from ground level, due to the numerous dunes of Vyctor 5's surface. Visibility isn't particularly good inside the pinnacle either, little sunlight reaching its surface.[1]

The Fujita Pinnacle was set to appear in StarCraft: Ghost.[2] In early builds of the game, the Koprulu Liberation Front would seize Fujita Facility within the pinnacle and flee there after stealing canisters of terrazine from Mar Sara. Nova would have to infiltrate the facility and confront the KLF leader Cole Hickson. The atmospheric anomaly of the pinnacle would feature prominently in the level, preventing Jackson Hauler from sending ground forces to assault the facility.[3]


The name is likely derived from the Fujita scale, which is used for measuring the intensity of tornadoes.
