While the brooding hero archetype was around before Cloud rose to prominence, Final Fantasy VII's main protagonist has since become synonymous with the role. Ironically, he wasn't as much so in the original game, and in fact he even had a pretty decent sense of humor. As time went on, however, he embraced the solemn and slightly guilt ridden identity that we know so well today. Whichever version you prefer, he is one of the most identifiable and popular Final Fantasy characters in the franchise's history, and is more than deserving of the quality cosplay we've collected here. Plus, he's got one of the coolest weapons ever, so that doesn't hurt. Without further ado, here is some of the best Cloud cosplay around.
