Cloud Strife vs Shishio Makoto by iANAR Cloud Strife vs Shishio Makoto by iANAR
This was a very old work of mine, was requested by my friend Maramala. He ask me if I could draw a versus between Shishio Makoto (from Samurai X) and Cloud Strife (Final Fantasy 7). Due to the fact that he is in an anime forum that time. Each member of that forum(kinda forgot the name though) contributes a story in a big royal rumble tournament versus between characters from any anime, comics, manga, WWF (now WWE) and video games.

My friend's contribution is that when Shishio Makoto died, he led a revolt in Hell and overthrow Lucifer and he became the next Demon Lord. And when Cloud Strife died, he was sent to Hell. Then both have a title match, who ever wins, will become the new Demon Lord of Hell.

Pencils and colors by me :)

Shishio Makoto is owned by Nabuhiro Watsuki
Cloud Strife is owned by SquareSoft.

For those saying Cloud would lose, you are assuming he isn't going to use materia right?  Because otherwise it would be a joke.

Shishio would win with one strike. Mugenjin, Tsui no Hiken: Kaguzuchi. Cloud is reduced to ash.

CCO would bring THE LAW OF NAAYYCCHHERR TO HIM!

Cloud's Omnislash would never be a match for CCO's composure.

This is a battle that will never end. There's a number of reasons why:

1. Hell is a place that is theorized to be the kind of place where you can be ripped apart, severed, skewered, and reduced to absolutely nothing and then reformed in an instant so that you can endure even more torture and pain.

2. Both are incredible fighters who have the will to fight endlessly if they are able.

3. Without the limitations of their bodies they CAN fight endlessly.

Given all that, this would be one hell of a match to watch but the only way it could end is in a stalemate.

So then you think Shishio can win against Sephiroth?

Indeed. Shishio is an experienced and efficient killer. He's also not evil, more of a Blood Knight who believes in survival of the fittest. Sephiroth is, to put it simply, a momma's boy.

In terms of afterlife; while Sephiroth was busy trying to resurrect himself and destroy Midgar, Shishio went and conquered Hell (it was stated that's what he was going to do and it's a popularly held belief that he succeeded, which is more than can be said for any of Sephiroth's plans.)

Shishio would win, Cloud would have no chance.
Shishio has equivalent or greater speed in comparison to Kenshin and since Kenshin was able to beat Zanza's zanbato and Cloud's Zanbato is even bigger.... well you get the point. Also, now that Shishio is dead and in the underworld, he has no time limit. He wasn't beaten by Kenshin in their fight, his inability to sweat meant he burned up. Since the dead don't sweat, Shishio can fight to his full capabilities without worrying about exploding again.
GO SHISHIO!

Shishio takes over the Underworld after he dies. He gives a beatdown to El Bloody Diablo. Shishio is the most accomplished swordsman of the two and come his return to Earth he'll have God level magic, making like the lovechild of Sephiroth and Chuck Norris. Cloud would piss himself and go run off to hide out in his purple dress.

Shishio: You seem to have some spirit in you...show me you're desire to snatch this throne away from me and try to slay the man that Lucifer himself deemed king!
Cloud: ...Your throne won't be enough. I want that tightly wrapped head of yours as a souvenir so I can have good place for my materia.
Shisho: hmmhmmhmm...HAHAHAHAHA~!!! Well said, goldenboy! Give me your hate and fury and let us coat this realm with our blood and guts until we cannot move any longer!
Cloud: Ready when you are...

Both men's swords clash as the shockwave is heard for miles. The underworld shall never forget this encounter.

Cloud needed a team to defeat Sephiroth. Sephiroth lost to a lone Lvl 1 character. Shishio would completely destroy Cloud; it'd be worse than the fight between Kenshin and Zanza.

Note: Cloud is not a "goodboy" as you say. If you have ever played the Kingdom Hearts games, you will notice that he has become "infected", shall we say, by Darkness Itself. Sephiroth comes and tries constantly to pull Cloud into the dark with him, and at the very end of their duel in KH2 they both fly off into the sky, never returning.

In KH1, Cloud is portrayed as carrying not only the cloak of Vincent Valentine, undead shapshifter, but also Vincent's Right Arm of Chaos, that golden gauntlet. This symbolizes Cloud's depression and his turn to darkness to find the "Aerith" that resides within the Kingdom Hearts universe. Once Sora defeats Cloud, they make a deal and promise to fight each other again, Sora saying, "Next time, no dark powers" or something like that. You can battle Cloud over and over again and he still uses the same dark powers that Sora mentions, which includes opening a demonic wing and becoming invincible in that state. This is to symbolize his ties with Sephiroth, who is known as the "One Winged Angel". In truth, however, there are more than Sephiroth who could claim that title. Genesis, Angeal, Cloud and Weiss (from FF7, dirge of cerberus) could all claim that as their own, as could any person infected with Jenova cells as the wing is a side-effect. Angeal, in fact, is the person who should really claim that title, as his wing is white and angelic.

Both Cloud and Sephiroth return in Kingdom Hearts 2, this time with a back story. Sephiroth appears before Sora several times, asking him to do this and that, before finally having an epic battle with the Keyblade master. Sora doesn't remember Sephiroth from the original KH, but this makes sense as his memories were wiped and Sephy never played more of a part other than as a Hidden Boss. Sora wins the battle, but Sephiroth says that in the end only one person can ever defeat him. He then turns away and looks down upon Hollow Bastion and asks Sora to bring Cloud to him. Sora does so, although reluctantly, and then Sora returns back to Sephiroth, who asks if Sora did the task.

This is the crux of the whole "badboy" Cloud Strife theme. Even though he has shed his dark powers, he has adopted an even darker look, which Sora comments on earlier in the game. Cloud agrees and says its Sephiroth's fault he looks like it, that Sephy is his "darkness". Even though both Tifa and Aerith now appear to help Cloud through this time period, he still doubts himself, and the battle between Sephiroth and Cloud is never truly resolved, ending with Tifa handing over the powerful Fenrir Keyblade.

The oufit Cloud wears in KH2 is the exact same as the one he wears in AC. While we don't know if the events in KH2 came b4 or after AC, we do know that the whole "darkness" theme is tied in to both. It doesn't surprise me that Cloud would go to hell--probably he turned emo and commited suicide. xD

For one Shishio probably wouldn't have made the choice to fight cloud, because he is going to die by cloud's very own hands(and his sword), never mess with cloud ever!.

Holy cow! XD Great Rurouni Kenshin and FF7 cross-overs, pre!

The skills of Shishio's Flame Tornado-slash against Cloud's Omni-Slash are much ideal for fighting scene. =D
