58 hisses or Hiss in my ear....

Poor Newbie! Early in on the job, and you get shanghaied by 12 very drunk SOLIDER first class. Poor little thing. WHo is Elana's sister, exactly? A COI creation or a BC creation?

She's a player-choosable character in Before Crisis -- I believe she's the short-haired blonde who uses a gun.

Well, and also within the game, I don't think they ever took Cloud and his Party on by themselves. By the end of the game, they were smart enough to take them on in threes.

I believe that in the game, you fight the Turks in at least pairs.

Still, at the same time, I'd wager having a good memory is something the Turks value, and Cloud isn't on any of their files except as a drone. So, which they would become extremely wary of him after fighting him a couple of times, he was fighting at his full potential, and he also had never passed any tests of anything. ((Well, Zack Has, but Cloud's file, which as soon as he appeared and started blowing shit up, would be opened, has failed all of them.))

Well, in COI, remember President Shinra has his own agenda going on, so it's quite possible that the information that the Turks got was altered or incomplete.

It took a while for Cloud's combat skills (inherited from Zack) to 'click in'. Even if he had the knowledge, it takes time and practice to get them ingrained into one's muscle memory. The same goes for materia use, etc. So at the beginning at the game, Cloud's probably fighting barely on par with a Third Class, but by the game's end, he fighting at or beyond First Class.

Strangely, do you think they would have recognized Zack's fighting style, if any of them had been around him a lot, like Tseng?

Perhaps Tseng might have, but IIRC, Tseng never sees Cloud fighting in the game.

LOL! I can see this being a party game for these boys even when sober. Sounds like a good time. I can just see Seph at the 'Basic tests' you mentioned before "Holy be damned gun jammed again!" *Picks his ammo apart, starts throwing it at the target*

Recently I've been hanging around the various "Versus" discussion boards where people debate about how characters from various comic books, anime, TV, fiction, etc. would do in battles against each other. On those boards, Cloud definitely is quite a contender in the mid-level tiers especially given his recent showing in Advent Children. Last Order did the same thing with respect to Zack, as providing damn persuasive evidence as to just how powerful and fact a top level SOLDIER can be (e.g., bullet-timing against machine guns, hand-to-hand prowess, casually jumping off at least 50 ft cliffs while carrying another person, etc.)

Remember that the very beginning of the game, Cloud tells AVALANCHE that "If there was anyone from SOLDIER you wouldn't be standing here now." Given Zack's demonstrated capabilities as a benchmark for SOLDIERs, at least this statement seems damn plausible and not an exaggeration on Cloud's part.

Zack and Seph are so cute! You are giving us the nice stuff before you hit us with another heart breaker, aren't you?

Now, would I do a sadistic thing like that? ::innocent eye-blink::
