Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories[edit | edit source]
Cloud does not appear in Chain of Memories, but instead a figment of him is created based off of Sora's memories from Kingdom Hearts. Because Cloud, and every other denizen of Olympus Coliseum in Chain of Memories, is just a recreation of a memory, they act the same way they did at the start of the first game before meeting Sora.
Phil is holding The Games, and Hades has hired Cloud to enter and kill Hercules in exchange for helping Cloud recover his lost memories. In the first act, Cloud joins Sora in signing up for The Games, convincing Phil not cancel the games.
In the second act Cloud has gotten ahead in the race, but waits for Hercules to show up. Sora reaches him first and prepares to fight assuming Cloud wants to take him out. Cloud states he'll let Sora pass - he only wants Hercules. Sora decides to fight anyway to protect Hercules, but Cloud slips away at the end of the fight.
In the third act Cloud has started to fight Hercules, wearing them both down. Sora shows up to help Hercules, but then Hades shows up and says that their deal is off since Cloud has failed to defeat anyone so far. Hades tries to take out the weakened Hercules himself, but Sora steps in and defeats him. As Cloud tries to walk away, Sora calls out and encourages him, saying that the smallest thing could bring his memory back since the truly important memories never disapear completely.
