A young man who is a former SOLDIER. In pursuing his nemesis, Sephiroth, and attempting to protect his world, he learns the truth of his own past. He often claims to be "not interested"─a notion that is reinforced by his detached demeanor. It is a mask that breaks only when he is overcome by motion sickness.
Cloud wears an indigo outfit, a metal pauldron, a brown belt with the SOLDIER symbol, brown gloves and black boots. Elements from his Dissidia design are the redesigned SOLDIER logo on his belt, his right glove is fingerless, and his pauldron is dual-layered.
In his "Cloudy Wolf" costume, Cloud takes on his appearance from Advent Children. He wears a high collar sleeveless indigo shirt, black pants and boots, and black cloth covering his left leg and arm. He has a shoulder pauldron, and his chest is covered by two straps, held in place by a badge representing Fenrir, a wolf that has come to be associated with him.
Cloud comes up pretty early during Chapter 1, and serves as a good source of direct damage. Cross-Slash provides a chance to stun enemies, which becomes a certainty when given Cross-Slash Extension. An assured Stun can make a big difference during Raids or fighting bosses in the World of Illusions.
