V System

V Reversal

Single hit with short range, knocks down on hit.

V Skill

Ryu's V-Skill is a full body parry with 3 frames of startup. When successfully parrying an attack, he gains V-Gauge and recovers 6 frames later allowing him to punish many moves that normally cannot be. However, on whiff it is crush counterable. He can also cancel the parry into another parry for multi-hitting moves, such as EX Projectiles however note that there is a small window before he can do it again, meaning moves that hit 1 frame later cannot be parried (such as a parrying a fireball followed by a jumping attack). Because of this, it is a high risk medium reward move depending on what is parried.

V Trigger 1

V-Trigger 1 greatly enhances Ryu's Hadokens causing them to come out faster, recover faster, and they can also be charged up to 3 levels with the third being unblockable causing a guard break. His Critical Art also becomes the Denjin Hadoken, a fireball that not only guard breaks when blocked allowing a scaled but guaranteed follow up but it also causes 300 stun. In addition, his Shoryuken has a higher juggle limit allowing new combos, all his punch attacks cause increased stun (including his Shoryuken), and crMP is now +3 On Block. The largest downside to this is how fast it runs out; every Hadoken and Shoryuken done drains the meter by a large amount. Overall this is a great choice in almost any matchup. While in V-Trigger 1, Ryu's sHP also becomes special cancelable allowing it to be used when crHP would not normally reach.

V Trigger 2

V-Trigger 2 gives Ryu a new parry by pressing HP+HK called Isshin. Compared to his V-Skill is is active on f2 as opposed to f3, and when successfully parried causes the opponent to enter a crumple state which can be followed up with HP Shoryuken or EX Donkey Kick for big damage. If used quickly, you can get about 3 total. For multi-hitting moves it can also be canceled into from a parry, for example against a Critical Art using V-Skill to parry the first several hits while there are invulnerable then use the Isshin parry for the final blow into a crumple. On whiff, Isshin is still crush counterable and once activated opponents will begin to be on the lookout for the parry by doing more empty jumps and throws in general. Also note that the parry is not guaranteed to cause a crumple; when activated it creates a small shockwave around it and if the opponent is not within that area (such as parrying a fireball), they will not be crumpled (though it may still pull them and be + on block). As of Season 4, while in V-Trigger 2 Ryu's sHP also becomes special cancelable allowing it to be used when crHP would not normally reach.


Strategy

Playing As Ryu

Fighting Against Ryu

Stand LK is one of the longest ranged light attacks in the game, and being 4f he can punish things effectively some characters cannot with LK xx Tatsu such as Alex's Flash Chop. Many Ryu's will still rely on crMK xx Hadoken which is a longtime staple of his, however in SFV this is not a true block string and can be interrupted with f3 armored or invincible attacks. His poking game and fireball game are also far weaker in general than they have been in most Street Fighter games, with Hadokens being 13f and the animation/sound being easy to read, if they are spacing their fireballs poorly you will often have enough time to jump in for a free combo on reaction. The recovery on his VT1 fireballs are much shorter, so this much riskier to try when he's in that state. In V-Trigger 2, be away of their parry and be on the lookout for common situations where they might try it such as a jump in attack, multi-hitting moves with a gap such as Birdie's VT1 Bullhead or Chun-Li EX Lightning Kicks, or common pressure strings with at least a 2f gap such as Ryu's MP MP. Both this and his V-Skill are in a counter state on recovery if they whiff, leading to big damage.
