Basic Strategy

(Note: This section also applies to Ken.)

Ryu's main goal is to pressure his opponents by throwing hadokens, punish jump-ins with his shoryuken, and control space with pokes such as crouching forward (cr mk). Ryu can fight both offensively and defensively. If given the right opportunity, Ryu can end the round in seconds (usually if the opponent is dizzy) with fairly simple combos. However, you shouldn't be focusing on this as it's too easy to mess up and get punished for attacking foolishly. Be patient, stand your ground, and strike when you find an opening. Never try to rush a match. Stay strong and you can succeed.

DCG

Advanced Strategy

You need to maintain a solid balance between offense and defense. In some matches, you might want to play more offensively while in others you'll need to be more patient and stay more defensive to win. Don't become too predictable. Use hadokens wisely and try mixing up the speed you're throwing them at. For example: if your opponent tries jumping over a fast fireball from far away, you can try timing another fireball to hit them before they land. Be careful throwing fireballs when they're closer to you as they could jump over and attack you before you can counter or block. You can try baiting opponents to jump at you by whiffing attacks like lp or mp and then counter the jump-in with a shoryuken. Try poking your opponents with normals like cr mk. This can be used to control space whether they block it or not. Poking with your normals can help you apply pressure and you can cancel many of them into specials, preferably if they didn't block the previous attack of course. Cancelling into a hadoken when playing footsies is usually pretty safe if done right. You can also try to tick throw your opponent by forcing them to block a light attack up close and then throwing them before they recover from block stun.

(This strategy section is currently WIP)

DCG

Match-Ups

Note: The matchup info I'm writing here also applies to Ken. The only real difference between the two in World Warrior is their kick button throws. Ken's kick throw tosses the opponent back farther than Ryu's, but otherwise they are identical fighters in this game. Therefore WW Ken's page will mostly contain identical matchup info. The good news is that, if your opponent picks Ryu first, you can just select Ken instead and play exactly as you would with Ryu. (Remember, mirror matches are not possible in Street Fighter II: The World Warrior. However, the SNES version does allow mirror matches by inputting a special code. Since this matchup section is for the arcade version only, I won't be covering mirror matches.)

Vs. Ken

  • 4.5 - 5.5

This is basically as close as it gets to a mirror match in WW. Ryu has some slight differences with some of his hurtboxes (worse than Ken's), but I don't think this gives Ken anything more than a slight advantage in this matchup (I could be wrong though). The only other advantage Ken has that you'll want to watch out for is Ken's kick button throw which tosses you farther back than your own version of the throw. This means that Ken can throw you into the corner more easily, although this matchup is still pretty even regardless.

Round start: Throw a Hadoken, walk forward slightly and poke Ken with a normal attack like cr mk, or do nothing and wait for him to try something. You'll probably see most Ryu/Ken players start a round by immediately throwing a fireball, but doing this too often gets very predictable. If you expect your opponent to start the round like this, you can try jumping immediately and hit him with j hp or j hk. You can link into st hp, cr hp, st hp, cr mk, etc. if you jumped at him early enough before he could recover from throwing his fireball. If you think you hit him too early, you can try jumping back to avoid a sac throw. You can also just throw a fireball at the start to trade with Ken's. If you suspect that Ken will jump at you at the start of the round, wait and see what happens. If he does jump at you, hit him with a lp shoryuken.

Basic strategy: Ken has the same tools as you to win this fight. Your main goal is to defend yourself better and use your offense more effectively than him. (matchup info incomplete. Work in progress)

Vs. E.Honda

7.5 - 2.5

Honda has very limited options in WW, especially when it comes to dealing with fireball characters. However, don't assume you'll beat a Honda player easily. You still need to know your best options against him and fight carefully. A good Honda player will do whatever it takes to get in and destroy you. I highly recommend focusing heavily on defense in this matchup. Honda can't win if you keep him away from you and you have all the tool to prevent him for closing in on you. Unless he managed to get a health lead and time is running out, there is no need to fight Honda up close. Have patience and don't let your guard down.
