How to unlock
Complete one of the following:
With the exception of the third method, Cloud must then be defeated on Midgar.
Changes from Super Smash Bros. 4
Cloud has been nerfed from his transition into Ultimate. While his recovery is safer and his aerials have less landing lag, his range and damage output have been nerfed, worsening his combo game, and his smash attacks have more ending lag. His most significant nerf is his Limit Break, which disappears if not used up in 15 seconds; this means that Cloud can no longer save Limit for as long as he wants.
Classic Mode: A Ride? Not Interested.
All of Cloud's battles are done on vehicle stages. This is a reference to the fact that he suffers from motion sickness.
Role in World of Light
Although Cloud does not appear in the World of Light opening cutscene, he was vaporized and later imprisoned alongside the rest of the fighters (sans Kirby) when Galeem unleashed his beams of light.
Cloud is unlocked in the Sacred Realm in the World of Dark, guarding the Master Sword required to dispel the darkness clouding the top part of the land which makes up the Triforce of Power.
