You see, it all started when Cloud went to the Honeybee Inn. Depending on which room you go to first, Cloud receives the same consequence. If Cloud goes to the “&$#% Room” first, he’ll experience:
a bizarre hallucination of himself and faints…[w]hen he comes to he is lying on a bed and Mukki is on top of him, hitting him repeatedly on the face and yelling at him to wake up. Cloud sits up and Mukki lies down beside him, telling him how relieved he is that Cloud is alright. Mukki tells him to “give this next one his best shot” and then starts to leave, saying his “time’s up”…This scene implies, and generates much fan discussion, that Mukki may have taken advantage of Cloud while he was unconscious.
If Cloud goes to the “Group Room” first, he’ll be…
forced to bathe in a spa with Mukki and several other men. Cloud is uncomfortable during the encounter, with Mukki attempting to get him to stay and join his “Young Bubby’s group”.
And this wasn’t just an innocuous bathing between men. The dialogue in the original games proves something of a much more sexual nature:
(Clothes are taken off, but shirts are kept on. That means they’re all pantless.)
Mukki: Isn’t bathing great…? It soothes your heart. How is it bubby!? It feels good, huh?
Here, you can choose either “…” or “It hurts” for Cloud. He’ll respond, respectively:
Cloud: I don’t feel good.
Cloud: Too stuffy in here…
Either way, Mukki responds:
Mukki: You’ll get used to it. Try counting to ten.
Used to what, exactly? Why does he have to count and bear it? What hurts? We can say several things about Mukki. When Mukki asks Cloud “Hey Bubby, how old are ya?”, Cloud responds ~~“Eight…”~~ “Twenty-one…”. Mukki then exclaims he almost half his age. Obviously, this would make Mukki in his forties. Four is an unlucky number in Japan because it sounds like shi (死 – death).. Could it be possible that Mukki is close to 49, whereas 九 sounds 苦 – suffering, agony or torture? Or is he closer to 42, an unlucky age for men in Japan?
After the [Don Corneo] events, the player can never visit the Honey Bee Inn again. After dressing as a girl the player can no longer go in…deeming Cloud “too weird” of having heard of his cross-dressing habits.
Brothels screen customers for diseases to protect their employees. It’s not really his weirdness that have employees concerned (hence President Shinra’s habits). Management won’t allow Mukki in either, which is why he lounges in Costa del Sol or Icicle Inn now.
That, or he’s stalking his lover boy.
Oh well, what happens in the hot tub stay in the hot tub, right?
