Ken

SSFIV-Ken Face.jpg

Ken trained alongside Ryu under the tutelage of Gouken and, after the two had gone separate paths, blazed a path of success in America. Not only did he become the American Street Fighter champ, he also was the successor to his father's business empire. Ken also managed to find true love in his wife Eliza, with whom they are now expecting their first child. However, the lure of battle never leaves Ken, and he has once again entered the world of Street Fighting and, most importantly to Ken, may soon have the chance to face off against his former training brother and true rival Ryu in the ultimate battle.


In a nutshell

Ken has always been known as the flashier Ryu, and it still holds true here. While he contains a lot of the same fundamentals as Ryu, his character design leaves some flaws open in exchange for a more aggressively oriented play style, trying to remain in the opponent's face more than Ryu and taking advantage of his stronger offense. Ken definitely puts himself at risk more often, but it pays off if you play it right.
