The inseparable ally of Reno, his fellow Turk. Rude is the quiet one of the pair, and he doesn't like talking in front of others. A consummate professional, his position with Shinra means he often finds himself at odds with Cloud.
Rude is a playable character who could be initially recruited during the Challenge EventMasters of the Planet as a First Time Reward for completing the event's Winding Tunnel stage on Classic difficulty. He also occasionally appears in dedicated Final Fantasy VII stages as a boss.
