Marvel vs Capcom/Ryu

From SuperCombo Wiki

Introduction

Ryu is similar to his older versions but he has a twist. With a special input, he can transform into a "Ken" or "Akuma" mode.

Pros Cons
  • Relatively good normals
  • Nice Hyper Combos for zoning and rushdown
  • Easy to play
  • Can change mode at any moment
  • Huge amount of tools to work with
  • Invincible DP
  • He's still training
  • Can switch to other styles to shake things up.
  • Same normals are also very stubby
  • Very reliant on meter compared to any other game
  • Low meterless damage, so you need to spend it for damage...
  • ...And yet changing modes costs meter
  • Few long ranged tools, aside from Akuma Mode
  • Being in one mode will shut Ryu out from tools in the other two modes
  • His best combos require practice
