Based on 2002 - 2003 X-Stats (which hold Link to be constant at 50%)

  • Cloud: 37.39% (8th place after loss to Mario) to 51.61% (1st place after victory over Link)
  • Sephiroth: 43.35% (2nd place after loss to Link) to 49.71% (3rd place after loss to Cloud)
  • Squall: 24.36% (20th place after loss to Snake) to 31.72% (16th place after loss to Samus)
