Cloud Strife is the main protagonist of Final Fantasy VII. He appeared in the 22nd episode of Death Battle, Link VS Cloud, where he fought against Link from the Legend of Zelda series.

History

At a young age, Cloud strove to join the illustrious Shinra organization. Instead, he was forcefully exposed to Mako poisoning, a raw energy drained from the planet itself. He gained the memories of his deceased friend, Zack, and went on to be the guardian of the Lifestream from planetary threats such as the evil Sephiroth.
