+
[[JT]],[[D]]+[[MK]] ([[CvS2]] - Evil Ryu)
+
 
+
==Special Moves==
+
 
+
===Hadouken (Fireball)===
+
[[QCF]]+[[P]] (all games)<br>
+
The [[Hadouken]] is the signature move of Ryu and of fighting games in general.  Ryu gathers [[Chi]] into an energy ball and releases that energy towards an opponent.  Ryu had this capability in the original [[Street Fighter I]] game and has had it in every appearance.  When Ken was altered to play slightly differently than Ryu, Ryu was given a more powerfull Hadouken than Ken, while Ken was given a more powerfull [[Shoryuken]].  This move is always performed with [[QCF]]+[[P]].  The higher the strength of the punch button pressed, the faster the hadouken travels across the screen.  The Hadouken is about half the size of a Ryu and is released at chest-level.  In games that don't have a Shakunetsu Hadouken, this move will knock down an opponent and set them on fire if it lands while they are very near to Ryu.  The Shinku Hadouken is a super-version of this move.
+
 
+
===Shakunetsu Hadouken (Red Fireball)===
+
[[HCF]]+[[P]] ([[SSF2T]], [[CvS2]], [[SFA3]],[[CvS2]]); [[QCF]]+[[2P]] ([[SF3TS]])<br>
+
In [[Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo]], Ryu gained a slower, more powerfull, and red version of the Hadouken.  This move will set an opponent on fire.  If thrown from a distance, they will be stunned for a short time.  If performed close-up, they will be knocked down.  In most games, this move can be performed by doing a half circle instead of a quarter circle forward ([[HCF]]+[[P]]).  In [[Street Fighter 3: Third Strike]], Ryu can perform a similar red fireball (the [[EX]] version of the Hadouken, consumes energy) by pressing two punch buttons at the same time while performing a normal Hadouken.
+
 
+
===Shoryuken (Dragon Punch)===
+
[[DP]]+[[P]] (all games)<br>
+
Ryu and Ken have had had the [[Shoryuken]] move since Street Fighter I.  It is a rising dragon uppercut attack which moves slightly forwards (though not as forwards as Ken's would later do).  This move eventually became Ken's signature move and Ryu was given a less powerfull version of the attack.  The [[EX]] version of this move in [[Street Fighter 3: Third Strike]] happens when two punches are pressed at the same time while executing the move, hits twice when starting from the ground, and has a faster startup.  Unlike Ken, Ryu does not commonly have a suped-up version of this move, although he can perform a Shin Shoryuken if powered up at level 3 in [[Capcom vs SNK 2]].
+
 
+
===Tatsumaki Senpukyaku (Hurricane Kick)===
+
[[QCB]]+[[K]]<br>
+
The [[Tatsumaki Senpukyaku]] is the third basic move characteristic of the [[Shotokan]] style of martial arts.  Ryu leaps straight in the air with one leg while the other spins around in a fierce hurricane kick.  While spinning, Ryu travels horizontally forwards across the screen.  In [[Street Fighter II Turbo]] and most games since, this move can be performed in the air.  The "Shinkuu Tatsumaki Senpuu Kyaku" is a super-version of this move.
+
 
+
===Joudan Sokotou Geri===
+
[[HCF]]+[[K]] ([[SF3]])<br>
+
In the [[Street Fighter 3 Series]] of games, Ryu has a special forwards sidekick that sends his opponent flying.  It is performed with [[HCF]]+[[K]].  The [[EX]] version (consumes energy meter) bounces your opponent off of the wall for a juggling opportunity.
+
 
+
==Super Moves==
+
===Shinku Hadoken===
+
[[DQCF]]+[[P]] ([[SSF2T]], [[SFA]], [[CvS2]]), [[DHCB]]+[[P]] ([[CvS2]]: Evil Ryu)<br>

+
 
+
===Messatsu Shoryuken===
+

+
 
+
===Metsu Hadouken===
+
[[DHCB]]+[[K]] ([[CvS2]]: Evil Ryu, Lv3 Only)<br>
+
Evil Ryu is able to this powerfull Hadouken.  It is like a Shinku Hadouken except that it will automatically dizzy an opponent.
+
 
+
===Messatsu Goushoryu===
+
[[DQCF]]+[[K]] ([[SFA2]]: Evil Ryu); [[DQCF]]+[[P]] ([[CvS2]]: Evil Ryu)<br>
+
Evil Ryu is able to perform [[Akuma]]'s [[Messatsu Go Shoryu]] move.  This is similar to the Shin Shoryuken.
+
 
+
