Winpe is a character in the legends of the Mi'kmaq, an Algonquian people of northeastern North America. He is a giant with magical powers who is an adversary of the culture hero Glooskap, having captured the hero's grandmother Nukumi and adopted brother Abistanooj. In some versions of the story, he is an evil, brutish villain who is killed by Glooskap, while in others, he is boisterous but honorable and is defeated by Glooskap in a series of tests of magical power. In one version of the Winpe legend, he was even the originator of the game of lacrosse, which Glooskap took from him and shared with the people.
Winpe appears as a spirit in the control room of Amami City's airport in Judah's Vision Quest. He calls out and asks who is calling for Manitou and broke the spell, with Judah noticing that his body is incomplete. Judah defeats his body only to learn that he survived in the computer and he sacrifices himself to destroy the control room, which had been infected by Manitou Net and Winpe, but Winpe survives. Shortly after the protagonist arrives to the control room to confront the spirit, Finnegan appears and destroys Winpe by himself.
