Cloud Strife's Card Saga Wars incarnation joins the fray!Hailing from the aforementioned fanmade MUGEN fighting game, and alongside his trusted Buster Sword, Cloud is ready to enter the battle in Crusade.
Although his moveset was overhauled significatively to better fit a Smash-type playstyle instead of a traditional fighting game one, this bad boy's sure to pack quite a punch. Or should I say slash? Go find out!
Not only are his attacks strong and swift in nature, his varied arsenal of magic-based moves and mechanics open the floodgates for a myriad of approaches onto how to deal with enemies!
- Neutral Special: Cloud alternates between casting Firaga (stronger and faster) and Blizzaga (slower but with a large hitstun) with each use.
- (Grounded) Up Special: Cloud performs a huge jump, cutting with his sword in the ascent, only to then fall down onto the ground and cast a multi-hit fire-based fissure in the ground.
- Down Special: At lower enemy percentages, this is just a normal two-hit based move without much to it. It's when an enemy reaches 130% (Cloud's voice when performing the move is a hint that this is the case) that the move turns into Finishing Touch - dealing 1% in damage, but tremendous knockback, while also casting a multi-hit tornado that envelops Cloud until the move is over.
