Cloud has the advantage due to how much more range Buster Sword has and the fact that he has a projectile while Lucina lacks one, allowing him to almost completely wall her out.

Lucina's only real edge in this MU is her strong edgeguard game, which helps against Cloud's below-average recovery (without Limit Break.)

Because of this, I rate the MU 7-3 in Cloud's favor.

(Cloud is still a fairly new character, so I may discover other things that change the MU, but these are my observations so far.)

Well. I can see how you would think that however I do believe lucina has the advantage in this matchup. Having recently become a Lucina main I've been looking into her frame data and the such a lot. And I have played this matchup more than I care to say. But I must say that I do have a positive trend. I prefer this matchup to many and far above fox's I would rate this matchup either even or slightly lucina sided. It may come as a shock to some but cloud isnt really all that "overpowered". I believe that if people have trouble with this matchup it is a matter of patience. Yes Cloud has a projectile and lucina and Marth struggle slightly against that. Howeverthis projectile if used to wall her out will stale and is easily avoidable. When playing a Cloud as lucina you must be patient and look for opportuinities to poke at him. Shieldbreaker is a great option if you are able to get a good read on your opponents habits,and with proper spacing up tilt and forward tilts can easily catch an airborne Cloud. It is notable that Cloud's cross slash and forward smash can deal out large loads of damage and possibly k.o you but these moves are punishable and If you get a handle on you opponent you will be able to either get a juggle for damage on him at low % or toss him off stage to put him at a disadvantaged edguarding position.

With my experience of this matchup and my knowledge of Lucina I give this matchup mostly even with a slight edge to lucina.
