Here he is! Just in time to save SRB2K from its dire lack of Final Fantasy characters! Cloud is largely a port job from his appearance in Chocobo Racing on the PS1, but when I found his sprites (credit to Ultimecia from TSR), the poor SOLDIER was in pieces! He was assembled from looking at gameplay videos, stills of gameplay footage, screenshots, and just from reasoning at a some points. Total accuracy to Square's original assembly was forgone for what I could put together and what looked good.
Of note is that Cloud is also rather small relative to racers in karts. Chalk it up to geostigma, mako poisoning, whatever. He was hit by the mini spell from FF3. ;)
There are some colorable regions on his bicycle and I recommend setting his color to "olive" when using him.
Be sure to check out his mini-map icon! ;D
Voice clips are from Dissidia and Dissidia 012. Victory fanfare is from Final Fantasy 7.
Cloud is owned by Square-Enix.
Special thanks to Miles Inubaka for help getting the ball rolling and for advice on certain aspects of the racer-making process as well as for cutting a couple of gifs for Cloud~
Could there be a Squall on the horizon...? A... cactus too? Stay tuned!
