In the first Street Fighter tournament, Ryu felt a sudden urge to win against Sagat at all costs. That urge was the Satsui no Hado. Under its influence, Ryu rose up suddenly and gave Sagat his scar via a cheap-shot Metsu Shoryuken. Ever since meeting Akuma, the Satsui no Hado's evil intent has gotten stronger over the years within Ryu. The critical point has finally been reached, and Ryu has given in to the evil Hado. Where his heart once was is now a gaping hole of evil energy and emptiness. Evil Ryu seeks only one thing - worthy opponents for a fight to the death.
In a nutshell
Evil Ryu's fighting style is a fusion of normal Ryu's and Akuma's. He has the footsies and simplicity of Ryu, with the stamina, speed and damage output of Akuma, in addition to some of their best fundamentals. What separates Evil Ryu from being a copy of both Ryu and Akuma is his new Axe Kick. While his game is not heavily reliant on it, it serves as an outstanding bridge between combos, allowing Evil Ryu to rack up very damage and stun in seconds. In terms of defense, however, he becomes very reliant on his Shoryuken, as his teleport is very slow in comparison to Akuma's, and some of his normals (especially his Crouching Medium Kick, Crouching Heavy Punch, and Crouching Heavy Kick) are not as fast as Ryu's. In addition, one must take the time to hone their execution with Evil Ryu, as some of his most damaging combos require precise timing. Once all is said and done, Evil Ryu becomes a solid character that doesn't sacrifice too much for the power to end rounds very quickly.
