Whirlwind Manu was a company that distributed unauthorized copies of Nintendo games throughout the late 80s and early 90s. They are notable for organizing their catalog under one line of product bearing Lx00 IDs. The titles were attributed an unique numerical ID in a given branch that was chosen depending of the total memory they required.

The companies seemingly had ties with NTDEC and Co Tung Co as the first manufactured PCBs which were then distributed with Whirlwind Manu stickers. The later did the same but also advertised their copies alongside the associated Whirlwind Manu IDs.
