What if Cloud kissed Link’s leg? on 12 Mar 2024 01:31 next collapse

What if link leaned back in bliss on 12 Mar 2024 19:25 collapse

What if Cloud’s hair went flat on 12 Mar 2024 02:52 collapse

Now this is a question I can really sink my teeth into on 12 Mar 2024 00:21 next collapse

Maybe? Its highly dependant on a lot of factors. If Cloud can use healing items and magic, then does that mean Link can use fairies? If thats the case, then Link would technically be immortal. on 12 Mar 2024 00:54 next collapse

Can Link summon fairies endlessly? Theoretically, Cloud could max out final attack and phoenix summons and then as long as he has MP he can respawn when killed and also max out items that restore MP. Link would essentially need to have limitless fairies. on 12 Mar 2024 10:43 collapse

Final attack + phoenix, mp absorb + master summon. KotR + MP Turbo Don’t need MP items anymore since any summon gives all your MP back, including the phoenix final attack that rezzes you.

Cloud wins under normal circunstances against any Link except maybe one wearing the Fierce Deity mask from MM and even then its close. on 12 Mar 2024 07:22 collapse

Link can freeze time and cook/eat though on 12 Mar 2024 07:34 collapse

Not in the regular Zelda games.

Also isnt FF7 turn based? Going by those rules Cloud can also freeze time. on 12 Mar 2024 21:28 collapse

I mean the last two Zelda games were mainline Zelda games. It’s as regular as it gets. on 12 Mar 2024 22:24 collapse

They threw everything in mainline Zelda games except the very original in the trash. BotW and TotK are very much NOT “regular” Zelda games. on 12 Mar 2024 00:47 next collapse

If you max out Cloud there’s not a chance in hell Link could beat him. He can summon gods and kills planet-defending monsters. on 12 Mar 2024 07:21 next collapse

Link can summon a horse on 12 Mar 2024 16:42 collapse

Cloud can summon a chocobo! on 16 Mar 2024 15:00 collapse

What is another dungeon boss to the boy of legend? on 12 Mar 2024 01:26 next collapse

Only way that is happening is with Link fully armed and Cloud with no materia. Cloud is superhuman at his base self, his Lvl. 3 and 4 limit breaks are brutal, and he just gets worse with Haste, Reflect, etc., never mind offensive spells like Ultima, Comet, summons…

Link is resourceful, he may outwit Cloud and I think he is genuinely smarter, but he will absolutely not beat him in a straight fight. Just not happening. on 12 Mar 2024 01:44 next collapse

My money is on the youthful, blonde, blue-eyed swordsman with the mysterious past who can use magic crystals to perform magic! on 12 Mar 2024 02:02 next collapse

Settle it in smash? on 12 Mar 2024 02:06 next collapse

Oot link could probably win using a bottle and a stick or something. Or maybe play the bottle like an ocarina and pick up some grass while getting exploded and slide around and some other shit then warp straight to the credits. on 12 Mar 2024 02:58 next collapse

Just to be difficult, I’ll say Squall. on 12 Mar 2024 12:52 collapse

Whatever on 12 Mar 2024 13:29 collapse

I think that’s how most people feel about FFVIII…

But I’ve still got my fingers crossed for a remake reboot on the tails of FFVIII. on 12 Mar 2024 14:27 collapse

Please note that my original whatever was meant to be a reference 😄 Should have included a tone tag haha

Agreed, would be neat, but idk if they would be willing to go the distance for VIII. Maybe IX. on 12 Mar 2024 15:02 collapse

I feel silly for missing that. I chose that dialogue option so many times. on 12 Mar 2024 04:48 next collapse

Death Battle did two episodes on the matchup, with each of them winning once. Link won when he had all his items and Cloud could use materia but couldn’t use summons (they were considered outside help which was against the rules in DB at the time). They said Link’s massively varied arsenal more than made up for Cloud’s pure strength advantage. Rematch, they added Link’s abilities from BotW and gave Cloud his summons back, and Cloud won, with the pure overwhelming power of the summons, of course. on 12 Mar 2024 07:20 collapse

What good is the triforce anyway? on 12 Mar 2024 05:11 next collapse

Which version of FF7 are you referring to? And also which version of Link?

Either way, probably depends on who the writers want to win lol. on 12 Mar 2024 14:12 collapse

Yeah, true. Any of them will do. on 14 Mar 2024 15:52 collapse

I don’t see how Link could beat a super soldier even with all of his equipment. Could the master sword cut through the buster? That might do it.
