Cloud is the most iconic FF char by far so that's simple. The Atlas thing feels moot because Persona is a big deal too. And Atlas probably wanted to promote their latest one. I have never played any Persona besides a bit of Persona4 Arena. I know none of the characters and I know none of the characters you mentioned either. You kinda act like there are NOT people out there that know these chars. Chars cannot be based on just your taste or mine. If it was based on mine it'd have a crazy small pool to pull from!

He's a sort of Juggy throw char hybrid. This is HDBZ. He won't just be a slow Zangief! For me part of the fun is adapting a throw char to this environment. To do so he cannot be a typical textbook throw char.
