If it was it'd be coming out of his leg. Fucking RTP sprites.
I can deal with it for this one scene. Usually I'm incredibly picky with these sorts of things but I don't have the time nor the patience to go through and sprite a totally custom set of field graphics, and for that I'm going to have to deal with RMXP's horrid base graphics.
Besides, Cloud is at the edge of the grating. Kumo is the one getting stabbed. (Sorry, pickiness, but this entire sequence is about Kumo establishing what he shares with Cloud and what makes him an individual. This is the first part of the sequence.)
