Was Cloud a good choice for Smash Bros?

I like his inclusion 77 60.63%
 
There were better choices 35 27.56%
 
I don't care 15 11.81%
 
Total:127

No Ultra, what have you done..? No... NOOOOOoooooo.... @_@


... I dunno if deserve is quite a right word for it? I guess who ever seems to fit in well and is a recognizable/iconic character, then that seems fine. Cloud seems to fit in the 2nd category.

He does seem like an odd choice, as you stated, FF7 was a PS1 only title, and the start of a bad relationship between SE and Ninten. Doing this seem to remind everyone of those more terrible times.

But, it seems really cool nonetheless. Cloud is a major iconic character in the FF series, the Playstation, and RPGs in general. Having him stand among other great iconic characters makes Smash seem more like an ultimate dream cross fighter. I mean, how often does Cloud, Ryu, Sonic, Mario, Megaman, and so on get to fight together in one fighting game. Only one, and it's Smash baby B^)

As some have said today, with Cloud entering smash, it almost seems the skies the limits...

He is probably the most iconic JRPG character so in my mind he deserves it.

Edit: the main problem most people have with Cloud is that he got a spot in the game before the fan favorites, however he is not the one that won the smash ballot so other characters will be added.



                                                                                     

Does anybody deserve to be in Smash bros?



Lube Me Up

I was never a big fan of Snake's inclusion in Brawl, but Cloud doesn't really bother me. Mostly because he feels more at home stylistically than Snake did IMO.

Probably not gonna be a popular opinion, but I kinda see Cloud as the figurehead for the Final Fantasy frachise, which had its start on Nintendo platforms. Did his game ever appear on a Nintendo platform? Technically no...but I'm guessing he stands out a lot more to your average gaming fan than the protags of FF 1-6.

Though I'm not exactly well versed in the FF franchise...so maybe I'm completely off-base here. I think his inclusion is a good sign of relations between Nintendo and Square Enix at least, and it's definitely a sign of how widespread Super Smash Bros. has grown as a crossover IP.

He definitely does not deserve to be in Smash Bros, unless this is marketing to get Nintendo fans hyped for Final Fantasy VII Remake for NX. Then, I am perfectly fine with him being in Smash Bros, but if not, he has no place in Smash Bros and should not be here.


My thoughts exactly. Let's hope the rumors/talk about FFVII Remake being ported to NX to be true.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

SE was originally going to make FF7 on SNES and N64 then they decided to release on PS1 since the console has CD-based that able to swap disc & more storage capacity.

Does Smash Bros. deserve Cloud?


Apparently more than PSABR

OT: It doesn't really matter if he deserves to be in. His iconic status in JRPG makes him a great addition to Smash Bros already phenomenal roster of Nintendo and Japanese gaming icons.

Know we just need Snake back along with his codecs to fill in the Konami representative.

I would assume that the Nintendo fanbase would be thrilled to have one of the most iconic characters in gaming coming to smash. I personally am excited for you!!! Lol

Anyway, square enix + NX.
