Kefka Palazzo is a very powerful Final Fantasy villain and definitely one of the most iconic ones. Just amount everyone knows who this figure is, but Cloud is still coming out on top here. He was able to take down Sephiroth who was the strongest Final Fantasy opponent. Kefka has many different laswers and other abilities but Cloud is fast enough to get past all of them and deliver some really punishing blows to end the fight quickly. Cloud wins.
