Man at Arms made this sword to scale and he could barely carry the thing by himself, let alone swing it around. and he is wayy bigger than Cloud

+Frederik L. That's not destroying any theory, it's pulling the cop out "It's not real" argument. Also you're missing the point whole point of this vid as well. Cloud's sword is prohibitively huge and simply

+Raptor Jesus Just take into account that to swing it around you would need a lot of weight in your body, if the sword was actually made of common steel (That would make it weight like 20 kgs) if you were able to move it too fast, maybe you will separate some of the muscles in your arms because of the force that moves you around. You will look cool, maybe one less arm, but cool.

+swygster The thing about using the movie as an example, is that it's meant to entertain. It throws logic out the window for the sake of creating flashy battles. While there's obviously nothing wrong with that (who doesn't love awesome battle sequences?) what I'm arguing would be the sword's use in real life. The sword splitting into multiple swords would be a very bad idea in real life, as it would create many weak points. But in the movie it works wonderfully, as it should. It is a fantasy setting, after all.  You bring up a good point by mentioning the length of his blade, as length is another very important trait in a sword. A thinner sword of the same length would weigh less (though, it would sacrifice the defensive capabilities you mentioned), making it more nimble. I'm tired of this discussion (don't get me wrong, it's been fun, but enough is enough), so here's a quick summary of my thoughts on the matter: In real life, even with his strength, Cloud's sword would be impractical. But in the games/movies, it's the perfect weapon for him. Why? Because he was created to use it in the way he does, physics be damned. And there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.
