While Bayonetta may typically be the favorite punching bag of the competitive Smash community, there’s another character currently drawing major heat: Cloud Strife. Specifically: Dual-Cloud in doubles play is earning bans at multiple major events, such as Get On My Level 2018.

To lay out the case against Cloud in as objective and analytical a way as possible, Smash player Barnard’s Loop has put together two years worth of data and tournament results, and compiled the data into this comprehensive breakdown. LoopBarnard’s results are pretty staggering, revealing that Doubles-Cloud isn’t just the most dominate Smash character in his format, but arguably the strongest Smash character of all time, with results sailing above the likes of the infamous Super Smash Bros. Brawl version of Meta Knight.

Hey, I'm just a 3D-head in a 2D-world. I like pretty much all FGC stuff, and I really like hearing about the way people think about games.
