Introduction

SFA3 ryu face.jpg

The "star" of the Street Fighter series and arguably Capcom's mascot. Ryu is always recognized by his trademark white gi and is likely the most well-known character in the world of fighting games. He is the master of the Hadoken and Shoryuken. His training partner, rival, and best friend is Ken Masters. Ryu has a burning desire to fight the strongest fighters in the world. He cares not for glory or wealth, but always lives for his next match and tours the world in solitude looking for opponents. He is winner of the first Street Fighter tournament and defeated Sagat there. He was the one who scarred Sagat's chest and Sagat has had a vengeful rivalry with Ryu since. Akuma killed Ryu and Ken's master (who was Akuma's brother) Gouken while Ryu was away at the tournament. In Street Fighter Alpha 3, he is being hunted by M. Bison and his forces to be used as a new host for Bison's mind.

Special Moves

Shakunetsu Hadouken: HCF+Punch [X Z V]

 the opponent when it hits them. The stronger the Punch button used, the
 faster the projectile goes.

Shouryuken: F,D,DF+Punch [X Z V]

-Ryu will rise into the air with an uppercut. The stronger the Punch button
 used, the higher and faster Ryu will punch.

Tatsumaki Senpukyaku: QCB+Kick (air) [X Z V]

-Ryu will spin forward with a kick. If performed in the air, the kick will
 arc up or down according to the time performed during his jump. The
 stronger the Kick button used, the more times Ryu will spin and hit.

Super Moves

Shinku Hadoken: QCF,QCF+Punch [Z]

-A more powerful version of the Hadoken, Ryu tosses a multi-hitting fireball
 across the screen. This can be used to cancel an oncoming projectile,
 removing one hit from the total.
    Level 1: 3 Hits      Level 2: 4 Hits       Level 3: 5 Hits

Shinku Tatsumaki Senpukyaku: QCB,QCB+Kick [Z]

-A more powerful version of the Tatsumaki Senpukyaku, Ryu will do a spinning
 kick in place which can hit opponents rapidly or juggle them in the air.
    Level 1: 5 Hits      Level 2: 9 Hits       Level 3: 13 Hits

Metsu Shoryuken: QCF,D,DF+K [Z(LV3)]

-A more powerful version of the Shoryuken, Ryu slides forward with a Seichu
 Nidan Tsuki elbow strike. If he hits his opponent, he will perform a two-hit
 Shoryuken. The longer Ryu dashes with the elbow strike before hitting his
 opponent, the more powerful the following Shoryuken will be. At maximum
 distance, the following attack will be a Shin Shoryuken, dealing maximum
 damage (thanks Another Gamer).
    Level 3: 3 Hits
