The mystery attacker is revealed in this comparatively very long conclusion to the first multi-part story!
Please say if these images are getting too big to load properly; I can cut them up if needs be. This one happens to be extra long, most episodes won’t be this long, or if they are, they’ll be in multiple parts.
Anyway, it seems the mystery attacker was Cloud, who hopefully doesn’t look too weird in this setting (this is literally the only artwork of him that vaguely fits, and I had to add emotions manually and very badly). He’s not going to be an eighth regular like Shulk, he’ll just show up every now and again for some quick gag. Also, as a disclaimer, I’ve never actually played a Final Fantasy game, let alone VII, which is why I’ve left Cloud basically personality-free. I apologise if I got something wrong.
