An ex-SOLDIER whose true memories have been lost, Cloud joins the rebel group AVALANCHE's fight against the Shinra Company in an attempt to save the planet, and discover more about his own identity.
Cloud is a SOLDIER, whose combat role is Physical Attack.
Cloud possesses high HP and Attack growth, and fair Defense and Speed. His Resistance score is also slightly above average for a physical fighter. He is frequently the first to receive the game's newest features as they are introduced, however, his soul breaks usually fall behind quickly, while other characters' soul breaks sometimes stay relevant. Cloud has the potential to wield some of the most powerful attacks, whether single-target or multi-target. Cloud can unlock access to basic Knight abilities and most Spellblade abilities through the use of Record Spheres, and when combined with his native Rank 5 Combat and Samurai access makes him a decently flexible unit.
