Wiki

Cloud Strife (クラウド・ストライフ Kuraudo Storaifu?) is a fictional character and the main protagonist in Square's (now Square Enix's) role-playing game Final Fantasy VII and several of its sequels and spin-offs. His original design was created by Final Fantasy VII character designer Tetsuya Nomura. Cloud's appearance is marked by spikey blond hair, striking blue eyes, dark clothing and his Buster Sword (バスターソード Basutā Sōdo?), which previously belonged to his friend Zack Fair. Cloud is voiced by Takahiro Sakurai in Japanese, and in English by Steve Burton.

In Final Fantasy VII, Cloud is a mercenary and self-proclaimed ex-member of SOLDIER, a select, genetically augmented military unit operating under the defacto world government and megacorporation Shinra Electric Power Company. Fighting against Shinra in the resistance group "AVALANCHE" and driven by a feud with the primary antagonist, Sephiroth, Cloud learns to come to terms with his troubled past and adapts to his role as a leader. Cloud has also appeared in several other titles outside the Final Fantasy VII continuity. Such titles include Itadaki Street Special, Final Fantasy Tactics, Dissidia: Final Fantasy, Ehrgeiz, and the Kingdom Hearts series.

Cloud has garnered a primarily positive reception by critics. Described as "iconic," the character has been ranked highly in various published character lists. Cloud remains popular among fans, and continues to place highly in popularity polls. Cloud has also become the basis for a variety of merchandise, such as action figures and jewellery.

He's brooding, disgruntled, super powerful...and just look at that hair.  Cloud Strife survived his game to co-star in Kingdom Hearts, a few movies and more.  He's the ultimate protagonist, besides Chrono of course.

Ugh, lame emo with the personality and charasima of a baked potato. If there was a way in-game to not have him be in my party I would have chosen it.
