Tips for Cloud

  • When fighting Isabelle, use neutral B to destroy any Lloyd burials she might set up.
    13
    1
  • Limit Side+B is the option that does the most %dmg. If you happen to fill limit while the opponent is at low%, this is a good option to rack their percent up. However, Limit Down+B kills most @ 60-80%
    8
    1
  • Cloud's upb comes out frame 7 and is a great out of shield option. it can also be used to punish aggressive players after an whiffed attack. It's safe most of the time?
    4
    0
  • Charge your limit to force enemies to approach. Spot dodge and punish openings.
    6
    2
  • Cloud's best spacing tool is Back air. This move is very great, especially if you get counter picked to a Battlefield-like stage as it's spacing through platforms helps your neutral game as Cloud.
    5
    1
  • Although I struggle with this, Don't be afraid to go offstage if you have or are one hit away from having limit.
    2
    1
  • Don't edgeguard too low as Cloud; it can easily backfire due to his bad recovery. Do your best to stop high recoveries with anti-airs, and charge limit or ledgetrap when the opponent does recover low.
    1
    0
  • You can wall jump to the edge and when you're at ledge height go for up b and he will snap to the ledge. Also when your enemy is approaching with jump, RAR nair,cuz the hitbox comes out behind him 1st
    1
    0
  • Cloud's worst matchups are Peach/ Daisy, Ridley, Pichu and Joker. Play patiently and maintain neutral or get against Ridley and the Princesses and avoid obvious combo starters by Joker and Pichu.
    0
    0
  • Forward air for a a great tool to edge guard, as it spikes in a certain spot. It also is great to use it when on stage because it pushes opponents away from you and does decent knock back
    0
    0
  • When recovering off-stage, use Climhazzard (Up+B) near the ledge for a speedy fall with a good grab distance that keeps your sword (no hitbox) in front of you to catch an over-eager edgeguard attempt.
    0
    1
  • Despite all of Cloud's neutral attacks, his neutral game is below par. Take the battle at the middle of the stage and make sure it is not in battlefield form!
