I know this is blasphemous to some people but I would take Squall to beat Cloud. I think both characters would be pretty matched but Squall gets the edge in terms of his Limit Break. Whereas Cloud would have to wait until his Limit gauge was filled up before he could use Omnislash, Squall could cast Aura and use Renzokuken every attack. Follow that up with the fact that you can greatly increase Squall's speed and strength through the junction system, Cloud simply would not be able to keep up.

Well looking at base stats cloud would win because Squall is a bitch without GFs, but even with GFs Cloud could get an Item that cuts damage he takes in half and he could just summon kights of the round which cant be blocked and will do max damage if fully leveled up. This is just for fun but what if Cloud just mimed Squall when he used his Renzokuken?
It's true that Cloud has higher base stats than Squall, but if Cloud is using KOR then I am assuming the characters can be equipped however we want them to be. I agree that KOR is the most powerful attack/spell/summon of any FF game and Squall wouldn't be able to survive, but I also think that when Squall has maxed speed it would be hard for Cloud to keep up with his attacks. My argument is more based on whoever gets the first chance to attack is probably the winner, although I have never seen anyone max out Cloud's speed stat I have personally done this with Squall and it is ridiculous how often he gets to attack. Nice touch with Mime though!

Yeah I thought it was a good one. Really in any of these character battles its up to whoever attacks first which is kinda lame. We could look at the characters themselves though for example who has combat training? Well both Cloud and Squall do, but Cloud has been exposed to mako and jenova cells which enhance him more than a normal human, while Squall is a normal human who can only use magic and abilities by having a GF give it to him.
