–Cloud Strife

Cloud Strife (or in Japanese, クラウド・ストライフ Kuraudo Sutoraifu) is the protagonist of Final Fantasy VII and a major character in Kingdom Hearts. Cloud appears as a young human male with spiky blond hair and blue eyes. Cloud is armed with a gigantic blade known as the "Buster Sword."


Cloud was so happy when he defeated a thousand Heartless consecutively that he took a break so he could become more energized. When he was informed about a little island called Wave Island, he decided to go there for a little vacation. By the time he had arrived, Fuse had already attacked the world. Cloud had defeated many Fusion Spawns, but they managed to bite off his shoulder grip ― and then the Spawn transformed into his Fusion counterpart.

Cloud himself managed to escape after the battle. Having done so, he met a girl on Wave Island named Korra. Cloud developed a liking for Korra and she liked him back. They're currently dating.

Cloud discovered a secret of even greater importance, however. Fusion Cloud had ordered minions to plant bombs all over Wave Island, linked to a single detonator. The island, now a huge Fusion bomb, is about to explode, and the player, Korra, and Cloud must dismantle the detonator. When that is done, Cloud will give the Hero a replica of the Buster Sword.
