Cloud Is One Salty Loser In Super Smash Bros.

Cloud Is One Salty Loser In Super Smash Bros.

Just look at him. Where's the sportsmanship, bro?

The funny GIF above comes from this video by Smash605, where eight level nine Cloud CPUs are pitted against each other for maximum chaos. Behold:


    I want the word Salty banned from Kotaku.

      Man I was just thinking that same thing! I was like, where the hell did that even come from?

        I started to hear it in Counter-Strike a few months ago.

        A word originating in Philadelphia generally meaning that you just got played, or are looking stupid, either because of something you did, or something that was done to you.

        Slang; A word used in the FGC (Fighting Game Community) to describe someone who is upset. (mainly because of their loss to someone.) Though the word's primary use lies in the FGC, it can also be used in any other context to describe being upset.

        Google does wonders...

          I always thought it was short for inSALTed.

        Also tears are salty, furthering the upset definition.

      Hey hey, there is no need to be throwing shade in the comments!

        But if I can't tell the internet how I feel, who can I tell?

      please also add "edgy" and "feels" to that list too....

      Well "Salty" is a term made popular by the Fighting Game Community, and since Smash is a fighting game I'd say Kotaku's use of the term is more than apt :)

    Ryu is worse. At least Cloud is clapping...Ryu basically has that same pose but with his arms folded. He's the only character that doesn't clap on the post game screen if he loses.
