A young man at the center of a struggle to save his planet on a distant world. Cloud is a former Shinra SOLDIER, an elite group within Shinra's private army. After a request from his childhood friend Tifa, he joins the terrorist group AVALANCHE in their mission to destroy one of Shinra's mako reactors. Amidst the fighting he meets a flower girl by the name of Aerith, whom he attempts to save after she is captured by Shinra and taken to their headquarters. This is where Cloud learns that the legendary SOLDIER Sephiroth has somehow come back to life.
Cloud is a summonable vision and optional playable character in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius. He serves as a character representative from Final Fantasy VII, and currently has two variants: "Cloud", and "Cloud (KH)", based on his appearance in the Kingdom Hearts series.

It requires Support crysts as materials.
- Jenova Cells is a passive that nullifies Blind, Paralyze, Confuse and Disease. "Jenova Cells"+1 adds Poison and Sleep.

It requires Green crysts as materials.
- Fighting Instinct is a counter ability that has a 30% chance to react against enemy physical and magic attacks with Cloud's default attack. When first enhanced, "Fighting Instinct"+1 raises the chance to 35% and the physical damage dealt to (2x). "Fighting Instinct"+2 further raises them to 40% and (3x), respectively. It requires Guard crysts as materials.
- By default, Aggression simply increases Cloud's LB gauge by 3 per turn. "Aggression"+1 raises Cloud's LB gauge fill rate by 50%, and "Aggression"+2 adds the effect of increasing his ATK by 20%. It requires Tech crysts as materials.
- Limit Burst
Omnislash (超究武神覇斬, Chōkyū Bushin Hazan?, lit. Super Extreme Martial God Supreme Slash) is Cloud's Limit Burst. A damage-type ability, it is a 15-hit attack that deals partially-unmitigated physical damage to a single enemy, ignoring its DEF by 50%.
The damage modifier will depend on Cloud's LB level:
He can equip accessories.
Equipping his Trust Master reward (the passive ability Buster Style, or his Super Trust Master (the Ultima Weapon (FFVII) greatsword) in the JP version, will trigger his Trust ability "Buster Style+", which increase his ATK by 70%, and his equipment ATK by 50% and accuracy by 25% when single wielding any weapon.
Cloud (KH) Edit
Cloud (KH) (クラウド(キングダム ハーツ), Kuraudo (Kingudamu Hātsu)?) is a 5-7★ Rare Summon, available during the collaboration event with the Kingdom Hearts series, Heartless: Guard Armor (which originally ran in January 2019 in the Global version). His job is listed as SOLDIER, and his role is Physical Damage. He has no innate element or status ailment resistances. Her Trust Master reward is the accessory Cloud's Cloak (ATK+40, DEF+10, SPR+10), which grants the passive "Cloud's Cloak" (increase the unit's equipment ATK by 50%) and accuracy by 25% when single wielding any weapon). His Super Trust Master reward is the Buster Sword, a two-handed, non-elemental greatsword with an Attack power of 180, damage range of (100% - 160%) and accuracy+50%.
Similar to Noctis, Cloud (KH) was released near simultaneously on the Global and Japanese version. As he would be far too powerful in Global, his STMR reward, many of his abilities and his Limit Burst were weakened to fit the current level of power. All changes will be undone at a later date.
Her awakening materials are the following:
- 6★ - Fairies' Writ x20, Rainbow Bloom x10, Calamity Gem x10, Prismatic Horn x5, Divine Crystal x5
- 7★ - Cloud (KH)'s Prism x1
Cloud (KH)'s stats at his highest levels are as follows (with no passive abilities taken into account), along with the maximum amount of stat points that can be increased through pot-enhancements:

- Limit Burst
Cloud (KH)'s Limit Burst is also called Omnislash. A damage-type ability, it is an attack that deals partially-unmitigated physical damage to a single enemy, ignoring its DEF by 50%. However, it differs from the original Cloud's Limit Burst in that it only does seven hits, and has higher modifiers.
The damage modifier will depend on Cloud (KH)'s LB level:
He can equip accessories.
Equipping his Trust Master reward (the accessory Cloud's Cloak), or his Super Trust Master reward (the greatsword Buster Sword) in the JP version, will trigger his Trust ability "Hades's Mercenary", a passive that increase his ATK by 40% and his LB damage by 20%.
- Cloud learns the ability "Jenova Cells" at 6★, likely as a reference to having been injected with them in his adolescence due to Professor Hojo's experiments; this is constrasted by Sephiroth having "Jenova Cells" as his initial ability, as he was injected with them before birth.
- Cloud's casting stances, victory pose and default attack are animated exactly the way he moves in Final Fantasy VII.
