While performing Braver, Cloud dashes towards opponent to stab them, then jump up and slam them down with an additional effect of Wall Rush.

Braver is Cloud's ability and it can only be done when he's in Sword Stance. This sword technique can be done by pressing the Up + Down or Guard + Up buttons.

Kingdom Hearts series Edit

Cloud is able to use an attack based on Braver in Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories. Cloud leaps into the air towards Sora, stabbing the Buster Sword into the ground and releasing a shockwave on impact. In Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, Zack is able to use a similar attack called Hero's Entrance. The player characters can use Hero's Entrance as a finish command while using Zack's D-Link.
