Cloud Strife is a character from the Final Fantasy series and the main protagonist of Final Fantasy VII, whom also makes many appearances in Kingdom Hearts series. He also appears as a playable character in the Playstation version of Ehrgeiz, Dissidia: Final Fantasy and Dissidia 012: Final Fantasy, and is a downloadable fighter in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.
Cloud was born in the town of Nibelheim, with aspirations of joining SOLDIER, an elite military unit of the megacorporation Shinra. Although Cloud did not possess the qualities necessary to join SOLDIER, he did end up becoming an ordinary footsoldier where he met and befriended Zack Fair, a 1st class member of SOLDIER. Seven years prior to the events of Final Fantasy VII, Cloud was sent to assist Zack and Sephiroth in investigating the Mako reactor at Mt. Nibel, near his hometown. After Sephiroth went insane, Cloud managed to defeat him by throwing him into the Mako pit below the reactor. Impressed by Cloud and Zack's ability to defeat Sephiroth, Professor Hojo took both of them as specimens, injecting Cloud with Jenova's cells. Zack and a now comatose Cloud managed to escape their capture, but not before Zack was killed by Shinra mercenaries. Due to Cloud's inability to cope with Jenova's cells in his body, he subconsciously assumed Zack's memories and identity, replacing his own.
In M.U.G.E.N, multiple versions of Cloud have been made. Some older versions were made using sprites of Trunks from the Sega Genesis Dragon Ball Z game, while newer versions are bigger and make heavier use of Cloud's Buster Sword.
This blonde haired speedy swordsman's attacks are all around, fighting offensively with a six button set and a charge/close-combat playstyle. This version is very fast on foot and equally as fast when airborne, fighting offensively with several Hypers and a complex parrying system.
