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.
