I knew who Cloud was before I knew what game he came from. I’m pretty sure he stands as tall as Mario, Link, Sonic, and other gaming icons of the same caliber. Like Lara Croft. Or Scorpion/Sub Zero.

10 Million copies of his game have been sold in an era of gaming that was very tight nit. Many of my friends who could give f*** all about gaming know who Cloud is.

Final Fantasy VII is the best selling game on PS1, which at the time was the best selling system of all time

methinks he is popular among everybody

Despite this, people who identify as non-gamers would have no clue who he is. Meanwhile, Pikachu and Mario are far more recognized across varied age groups and cultures than Cloud. He's a gamer's icon, but not a gaming icon.

That's cause Mario and Pikachu are in every game in their franchise, and Cloud isn't

He is still an icon among non-gamers, just look at the popularity of Final Fantasy crossover mobile games

Even Kingdom Hearts, which is prominent among non-gamers, has Cloud as one of the central figures

Yes. At the very least, he most likely is more iconic than half the roster.

You know there are more than three Kingdom Hearts games, no matter what their difficulty with counting to three tells you?
And though we deserved not his mercy, he has led us to this new Eden, a last chance for redemption.
