General Information Edit

Her movements are like a cloud dancing in the sky, and tentacles from her body reach forth to attack enemies. Her mastery is in using long range particle beams to keep her opponents at bay. The Cloud of Darkness is one of the villains fighting for the side of Chaos. She is an entity that appears when the balance between light and darkness is disturbed, and tries to pull the world into the void. She hovers like a cloud, and attacks with the tentacles wrapped around her body. In the original title, the Cloud of Darkness was summoned after a thousand years when the dark lord Xande brought chaos and disorder to the world. To pull the world into the Void, she stood against the Warriors of Light.

How to Unlock Edit

AppearanceEdit

Unlike most characters, Cloud of Darkness' design was taken from an unused concept by Amano that was not used in the final version of the original game. She appears as an almost nude woman with pale skin, red eyes and flowing silver hair that seems to move about like wisps. The only form of clothing she has is a red flowing cape attached to long red and black gloves, a black clawed covering concealing her left breast and a red marking covering her right nipple. Around her body are a pair of yellow snake-like beasts that move about on their own accord.


Alternate appearanceEdit

  • Dark Robe - Cloud of Darkness's first alternate costume simply changes her cape's color to blue and gives her lighter hair.
  • Lucent Robe - In Dissidia 012, she gains a second alt. costume based on a hypothetical alternate world counterpart 'Cloud of Light', which changes her cape to white, gains lavender and yellow decorations. Her tentacle demons have their faces removed and lose their hue to resemble more like clouds. The appearance is completed by the change in her high collar which is now frilled.

Abilities Edit

Cloud of Darkness is referred to as Bane of Life. Her gameplay focuses on grinding BRV off of her opponent to power her attacks. Using the vast power of darkness, she blasts her opponents using a very wide array of long range beam-like attacks and energy blasts. She has the most HP attacks out of everyone in the game, but the least BRV attacks, only having access to two. These BRV attacks however, have timed stages and pressing O at different stages have her use different attacks. In Dissidia 012, she receives two more BRV attacks.

HP Attacks Edit

Move Type CP AP for Mastery Obtained Description
高射式 波動砲
"[Anti-Air] Particle Beam"
Ground 40(20) 180 Initial Cloud of Darkness surrounds herself with four beams of energy that shoot vertically.   Great close range attack, but does an even better job as an anti-air attack because of its long vertical attack range.
波動球
"Aura Ball"
Aerial 40(20) 180 Initial

Sends out a large ball of energy (Can send out up to five by holding down the square button).  The balls of energy will detonate upon one of three conditions: 1. you release the square button  2. a certain amount of time passes while still holding the square button  3. If cloud of darkness is hit while you are still holding the square button.

Note: the balls of energy do not disappear without detonating, so even if you are attacked, they will still explode therefore potentially damaging the enemy.

広角式 波動砲
"[Wide-Angle] Particle Beam"
Ground 40(20) 180 Level 5 Sends out a large wall of energy to attack the opponent.  Only travels to a mid-range distance, but is very wide, and while it is traveling acts as a large shield against projectile attacks.
報復式 波動砲
"[Wrath] Particle Beam"
Ground 40(20) 180 Level 10 Guards and then uses a beam of energy to attack.  Starts by holding up a shield for about half a second.  Upon blocking any non-guard crushing attacks, a beam of energy immediately fires at the enemy from directly beneath their current location.  Crushes enemy guard. Note: no beam is fired if the enemy breaks through the initial shield (for example with a Havoc Wing, or Cloud's Braver HP attack).
乱打式 波動砲
"[Fusillade] Particle Beam"
Aerial 40(20) 180 Level 19 Fires a salvo of 6 balls of energy after the opponent.  Each of the balls seem to have their own traveling distance.  2 short range, 2 mid-range, and 2 long range. (generally speaking).  Somewhat slow start, but the balls fired have pretty good homing ability.  Breaks through guard but can be stopped obstacles.
報復式 波動砲
"[Wrath] Particle Beam"
Aerial 40(20) 180 Level 24~36 Guards and then uses a beam of energy to attack.  Starts by holding up a shield for about half a second.  Upon blocking any non-guard crushing attacks, a beam of energy immediately fires at the enemy from directly beneath their current location.  Crushes enemy guard. Note: no beam is fired if the enemy breaks through the initial shield (for example with a Havoc Wing, or Cloud's Braver HP attack).
潜地式 波動砲
"[Feint] Particle Beam"
Ground 40(20) 180 Level 42 Disappears underground and then pops up to shoot a ball of energy. Its possible to direct yourself while underground.  Holding the analog stick in whichever direction you choose after digging underground will give the desired results.
零式 波動砲
"[0-Form] Particle Beam"
Aerial 40(20) 180 Level 51 Charges and releases a medium ranged particle beam. Has excellent homing.
追尾式 波動砲
"[Long-Range] Particle Beam"
Ground 40(20) 180 Level 37 Sends a line of vertical particle beams that seek after the opponent.  Has very long range , and if the enemy dodges too early, it will do an even better job tracking their movement.

Ex Mode Edit

Dissidia Cloud of Darkness ex

Cloud of Darkness's EX Mode features her in-game appearance from Final Fantasy III. When in EX Mode, her attack lag is eliminated by executing any HP attack. As such, in EX Mode, she can spam HP attacks. Her EX Burst, Ultra Particle Beam, requires the player to hold down Circle-button to charge a bar up to 120% in order to severely damage the enemy with her signature attack. Releasing the button too late will result in the bar dropping to 80% and a weaker attack.

Equipment Edit

Cloud of Darkness is able to equip Rods, Staffs, Robes, Clothes, Bracelets, Headresses, and Hats.
