Mercenary and ex-member of the military operations group known as SOLDIER, Cloud Strife joins the clash wielding his signature weapon, the Buster Sword. Cloud Strife is a slow, but powerful sword-user, being able to dish out the damage in large amounts, but not able to effectively dodge incoming attacks all that well. Cloud Strife is officially the second third-party character to appear in Super Smash Bros. Unlimited, and the first official newcomer. Cloud Strife's main focus in Final Fantasy VII is the fight against Shinra's resistance "AVALANCHE" and his fued with the main antagonist, Sephiroth.
