Cloud starts with Ice and Lightning materia. Clouds produce ice (hail) and lightning. His hair is spikey and yellow like lightning. I'd say Cloud was far closer to lightning elemental than fire.

Yuri Hyuga - Darkness
Veigue Lungberg - Ice

Hiro only uses wind magic, but no one in that game is labeled with an element.

There's a ton of darkness as well.
Light/Dark/Fire are just impactful 'elements'. With lightning being sort of an off-shoot of light, and not too uncommon in it's own right.
They bear a certain weight appropriate for the typical role of a main character putting the world on their shoulders.
You often see those other elements either from antagonists or party members, but rarely is the hero associated with something like wind, ice, or earth, if any element at all.

They're not nonexistent. Every major element has surely been done by now, but they're still awfully rare in comparison.
Felix/Isaac somehow completely slipped my mind though o_O.
Definitely a great example of an earth-based protagonist. Dunno who else would be...
