Triple Hitting Side Smash Attack

This quick three-hit smash has high launching power on the last hit. The first hit isn't so powerful, so the penalty for getting countered isn't high.

Down Smash Attack to Fling Enemies behind You

Cloud attacks a foe and then sends the foe flying off behind him. Use this when close to an edge to get out of sticky situations.

Meteor Slash (Forward Air Attack)

Cloud takes a huge vertical swing at an enemy. Hitting an opponent with the tip of the sword has a meteor effect.
