Reads more as a brisk walk to me. The arms are a little too static, as well. I can see you have a little motion in them, but a little more swing might help. Also, why does the cape kick up and down like that? If he's constantly going forward it should stay flowing.

Reminds me of a Metal Slug enemy (can't remember which MS in particular). His torso and arms don't move enough. And I agree with what Regulus Awesome said.

Bring his knees up a bit more in each step, and have him come off the ground a little bit. That might help it look more like he's running.

Other than that I really like this sprite, especially his sword. Is he wearing a hood or is that supposed to be a helmet?

i was intending to edit the cape, also i've added some swing to the arms :-

Cool sprite. He's still power-walking. The highlight on his knee reads as a scuffmark on his drawers, not light. (assuming you're attempting a lighting effect)

The distinction between a walk and a run is actually that in a walk both of the feet never leave the ground at the same time, whereas in a run they do.

So if he never leaps up in the air it'll never be a run, really O:

Yes, for a run he must push off the ground with his back leg, then extend his other leg in front of him to catch himself. His torso is moving forward at a constant velocity, so when it hits the ground then the bodies weight rests on it forcing it to bend at the knee, then the body passes over that leg, and the person uses the bend in the knee and the ankle to push off the ground once again. The difference between a run and a walk is that in a walk, you are simply leaning forward, and constantly catching yourself with alternating legs. In a run, you are jumping forward and catching yourself with alternating legs.
