SB: Another Rip Off by SaccharoKirby SB: Another Rip Off by SaccharoKirby
Note: this is set in Smashing Boundaries; my headcanon of a Smash Universe.  I allow Link talking and Marth knowing English, so if you're pointing that out, then obviously you haven't read this note.

I know Cloud speaks English, but for whatever reasons, he's speaking Japanese in Smash 4.  Looks like we have another Marth/Roy! Also, he's really strong in-game; he's starting to become one of my main haha.  Man, I really have Link not getting along with anyone in SB, huh?

Well, Cloud doesn't realize that similarities are not rip offs.

Sorry Link, but Cloud is NOT a rip off of you. Your move sets are not even remotely similar.

For me, Cloud > Link. 
However, LoZ came over 10 years before FFVII. So the rip off would be closer on Cloud doing the rip off. But Cloud is still way better than Link. XP

Link's Rivals
friendly Rival: Marth, Corrin, Roy, Ike, Sora, Riku, Linkle(proclaimed Sister somewhat), and Pit
Unconfirmed Rivals (unknown if these characters ARE Link's consider rivals.): Rena Kunisaki( dot. Hack), Kratos(God of War), Zero(Mega Man X), Raiden(Metal Gear Rising), and Terra Brantford(Final Fantasy VI) is that how you spell Terra's last name?
Arch-Rivals(only one and consider Link's Rival/Enemy, somewhat.): Cloud Strife, OBVIOUSLY!!!!!

so yeah, why not?

Marth: Hello friend!

Cloud: I don't think calling me a friend is necessary.

Marth: Nonsense, all heroes are friends with each other.

Cloud: Whatever. Make this conversation short, I'm not interested in royal shenanigans.

Marth: First off: no need for edge, that's Dark Pit's job. Second: I'm here because one of my friends says you're ripping off his style.

Cloud: If you're talking about the mercenary, then I've already proved to him I have the bigger sword.

Marth: No, I'm actually talking about the man in the green hat over there (gestures to Link).

Cloud: Oh, him? Well with his blue eyes, blonde hair, and serious look, he's definitely ripping my style. Does that answer your question?

Marth: Definitly.

Cloud: Good, now leave me alone.

Marth: It was nice talking with you Cloud-san!

Seems like the Palutena's Guidance for Link has hit home in another way. Link's been around for about 11 years longer than Cloud, but the two are wildly different in style. The official result of any Link vs Cloud fight is going to be contentious, regardless (I still back Link any day), so it's best to just let the rivalry continue in Smash.

Still would have preferred Geno over Cloud. but the Mii costume is better than nothing...

Then again, Death Battle admits that there are many factors to a fight, such as what the character has, when he uses it, and how he uses it. For their Kanto Starter Brawl, they admitted the chance all three could win, including Venasaur.

So, while they determined that Link was generally better and more likely to win, that doesn't mean it was guaranteed that Cloud would lose.
But I still agree with Death Battle. A composite Link from across generations has the better chance at winning.

A composite Link would have the Giant's Mask, Golden Master Sword, and the Master Medallions, and active use of the Triforce of Courage. Barring the supremely OP summons like Knights of the Round, Link would probably end Cloud.

As for why Cloud's only speaking Japanese in Smash 4, it's because Steve Burton, the English voice of Cloud, is a Union actor, enlisted by SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild / American Federation of Radio Artists), and many of the Final Fantasy games, as well as the Kingdom Hearts series are Union casting (hence the reason we have a number of celebrity voices in those games), whereas Smash Bros. is not. It's for that same reason they can't just take his audio clips from other games like they did with Roger Craig Smith's audio for Sonic.

It's not that they "didn't feel like hiring him," it's that they couldn't, because it would be a large contractual conflict for all parties involved.

Yea, it is a pain, but y'know what? I don't mind that Cloud doesn't speak English in this one. I understand the reason, and the fact that we have him in the game, and that he performs amazingly, is more than enough.
