Techniques[edit | edit source]

Special Moves[edit | edit source]

  • Hadoken (Fireball) - Ryu focuses his ki into his hands and releases it as a blue-colored ball of energy at the opponent.
  • Shoryuken (Dragon Punch) - Ryu leaps into the air with an jumping uppercut, serving as a deterrent against opponents that are jumping in.
  • Tatsumaki Senpuukyaku (Hurricane Kick) - Ryu hops into the air and spins with a leg out, not unlike riding a small invisible hurricane. In later games, this can knock the opponent down with one hit. In the Street Fighter EX series, Ryu's Hurricane Kick was a series of flying kicks, ending with an airborne axe kick.
  • Joudan Sokutou Geri (Upward Sword Leg Kick) - Accessible only in the Street Fighter 3 series, Ryu steps sidewards and aims a kick at the opponent's chest area, sending the opponent flying.

Super Arts[edit | edit source]

  • Shinkuu Hadoken - Ryu's first Super Art, a high-powered, multi-hitting version of his Hadoken.
  • Shinkuu Tatsumaki Senpuukyakuu - A faster version of the Tatsumaki Senpuukyaku that has Ryu spin in place, it hits the opponent multiple times. This is reduced to an EX move in Street Fighter III: Second Impact and Street Fighter III: Third Strike.
  • Shin Shoryuken (True Dragon Punch) - Ryu's most powerful move, it is a powered version of his Shoryuken, dealing four (three in Street Fighter III: New Generation) hits to an opponent.
  • Denjin Hadoken - Ryu charges up for an electric version of his fireball. This move can be charged further by holding down the punch button and twirling the joystick rapidly, and is unblockable. When it connects, it has a high stun rate, and a fully charged Denjin Hadoken can completely dizzy an opponent.
