So ultra 1 he throws to fireballs

#4
Cinderkin said on April 7, 2011 at 5:32 p.m.

I feel like ultra 2 didn't end the way that I was expecting. Seems like it's missing something.

CrimsonRelic said on April 7, 2011 at 5:37 p.m.

Oni's got the Dragon Balls!

Steele301 said on April 7, 2011 at 5:37 p.m.

So...ultra 2 he...like, flies into them?

Loving his laugh at the end of ultra 1

C2Q said on April 7, 2011 at 5:40 p.m.

Is his hair white or is it fire.

@ Cinderkin

It felt weird because the "ching" sound of impact happens too late and not when he actually connects the punch. They got the timing of the sound effects right for Ryu's Metsu Shoryuken. That one seems fine but the delay really hurts this ultra.

#10
Poppinkrey said on April 7, 2011 at 5:44 p.m.

@ Cinderkin

What? Where you waiting for Gouken to split in half? hehe

#11
Oroku_Saki said on April 7, 2011 at 5:47 p.m.

I'm waiting for BossLogic's quick wallpaper edit of the official Oni artwork.

#12
Jerry said on April 7, 2011 at 5:48 p.m.

Who do you guys think is more powerful, Oni or Oro?

#13
SaintAvi said on April 7, 2011 at 5:49 p.m.

lol @ laugh at end of ultra 1

#14
Guile4Life said on April 7, 2011 at 5:49 p.m.

devil god! lol

#15
Artiskan said on April 7, 2011 at 5:52 p.m.

both of these ultras are awesome but once again, what is up with the children laughing in the background in the second ultra...? probably is in both of them andu can clearly hear it in both of akuma's ultras....

#16
Artiskan said on April 7, 2011 at 5:53 p.m.

@ #13 interesting question...u think oro might get added? he is technically one of the most powerful characters n the street fighter universe....

#17
xShonuffx said on April 7, 2011 at 5:54 p.m.

Dragon Balls

#18
Hakansoilbarrel said on April 7, 2011 at 5:56 p.m.

(the children are happy to get some fight money)

#19
Swag said on April 7, 2011 at 5:56 p.m.

in my opinion.
Oni > E.Ryu > Oro > Akuma > M.Bison

#20
Kalyx_triaD said on April 7, 2011 at 6:02 p.m.

Based on presentation alone, I find Oni Akuma to be the most powerful Street Fighter of the franchise. He flirts with DBZ levels.

Now Oro fighting with both arms? We'll never know...

#21
NobleEskimo said on April 7, 2011 at 6:03 p.m.

Oni = evil Gouken, not "eviler" Akuma

#22
Hakansoilbarrel said on April 7, 2011 at 6:05 p.m.

(Gouken doesn't wear beads around his neck, stop being fanbois and accept:

What? Akuma is evolving!

...

Your Akuma evolved into Oni!)

#23
fawaz said on April 7, 2011 at 6:07 p.m.

Is it necessary to ruin the artwork by putting in a watermark?

#24
mfinnegan73 said on April 7, 2011 at 6:08 p.m.

He kind of looks like an evil Blanka, and is this evil Gouken, super evil Akuma, or the trainer of both Gouken and Akuma, because I thought Akuma was as evil as he could be and I heard there was a master of both Akuma and Gouken that died, but so did Gouken and you see how that turned out.

#25
Escoobi said on April 7, 2011 at 6:08 p.m.

@23 its the shiny version with glowing white hair!

#26
Creeper said on April 7, 2011 at 6:09 p.m.

1. Oni, Gill
2. Oro with both arms, Shin Akuma
3. Evil Ryu
4. Cody without handcuffs
5. Akuma, Oro with one arm, Ryu

I think this might be accurate to an extent. Akuma and Ryu had an indecisive fight at one point, and Akuma and Oro with one arm had an indecisive fight at one point. I heard Cody wrecked Ryu when he took off his handcuffs but then Ryu went Evil and wrecked him right back.

#27
WinstonChurchill said on April 7, 2011 at 6:09 p.m.

Oro is sick. Would be happy if he entered the scene :D

#28
Creeper said on April 7, 2011 at 6:10 p.m.

Er I forgot Gouken in there, but I think he was actually "killed" by regular Akuma with a Raging Demon so I think he's either his equal or weaker, definitely not stronger.

#29
GUNNAH_MAN said on April 7, 2011 at 6:11 p.m.

oni just gained 1 more special i have not seen before, qcb + p = air dash, qcf + k = dash slash move, dp motion + k = ground pound move, hcf + k = ???

#30
CBX said on April 7, 2011 at 6:11 p.m.

so there is still hypothetically 8 more characters to reveal if this comes out in june like the rumors say will they end up being dlc characters we have to pay for or time released like in the arcades?

#31
mfinnegan73 said on April 7, 2011 at 6:11 p.m.

Screw it I'm saying this is evil blanka and putting my fingers in my ears and going lalalalalalalala when someone tells me other wise

#32
JanTheMan said on April 7, 2011 at 6:12 p.m.

Dan > Oni > Evil Ryu > Oro > Akuma > Dictator

#33
Cobalt said on April 7, 2011 at 6:15 p.m.

Who credits a source but put their own watermark over it? That doesn't make any sense.

#34
Escoobi said on April 7, 2011 at 6:16 p.m.

@30 That does a parry move like Gouken's. I remember playing Oni at AI and it did it but I was mashing and had no idea what the input was, so I assume it does that

That is why this is Blanka lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala (while plugging my ear like a little kid)

#37
GUNNAH_MAN said on April 7, 2011 at 6:24 p.m.

@Escoobi

do you remember if it did decent damage ? did it look similar to goukens parry ? and finally did it look cool ? thanks in advance

#38
Felecorr said on April 7, 2011 at 6:26 p.m.

I must admit, ultra 1 is creative.
Ultra 2 is awesome, but the end leaves something to be desired.

#39
Hakansoilbarrel said on April 7, 2011 at 6:27 p.m.

(they're saving the director's cut of Ultra II for MK*Street Fighter)

#40
eddy_c_h said on April 7, 2011 at 6:29 p.m.

Damn! One huge radiation leak turned Ryu to Evil, and Akuma to Oni...!

#41
Escoobi said on April 7, 2011 at 6:31 p.m.

@Gunnah_Man its been so long I cant really remember the damage, but the stance is the same

#42
SuperNatent said on April 7, 2011 at 6:34 p.m.

Oni's Ultra 2 is GODLIKE. Nuff said!

#43
Swag said on April 7, 2011 at 6:34 p.m.

#22
Gill is weaker than M.Bison in my thought.
M.Bison destroys Gill but Gill revives in Udon's art.
Gill = Seth
and Cody being stronger than M.Bison is nonsense.
Ryu breaks Cody's handcuffs to have a fair fight but becomes evil during the fight and defeats Cody in street fighter II turbo #7 (Udon)

#44
Sturmgeist13 said on April 7, 2011 at 6:36 p.m.

Exactly what Scorpion said, this IS NOT EVIL GOUKEN!
Gouken has NO evil in him so how can he be enveloped by the dark hadou? This is the ultimate level of Akuma is who this is & he's badass.

he looks more like Blanka now.

#47
GodPride said on April 7, 2011 at 6:41 p.m.

I still say Akuma's Kongou Kokuretsu Zan is better. Keep it classy.

#48
H3XxMAjiN said on April 7, 2011 at 6:42 p.m.

gouken dies three more times. nice

#49
Raven said on April 7, 2011 at 6:42 p.m.

His ultras look amazing...but the start up looks atrocious.

#50
novaxxblaze said on April 7, 2011 at 6:47 p.m.

acctually guys i cant be sure on weather or not that is goken or akuma because this is following the manga of sf not the game play story (theses to characters specifically)
on that note i can say that this isnt the strongest form of akuma this is akuma while he is mastering his strongest moves the ultras he does are like baby versions his highest form is shin or true akuma you gotta remeber guys this happens before 3rd strike which is when shin akuma comes into play

#51
Deadds said on April 7, 2011 at 6:47 p.m.

Fix the delay on the last hit sound on Oni's Ultra2!

I thought these guys were professional?

#52
GUNNAH_MAN said on April 7, 2011 at 6:51 p.m.

this characters confusing, its an akuma/gouken blend, things similar to akuma : f+mp, a fake air fireball, hcb fireball, cr.hp, b+grab, raging demon, ultra 1 and 2 (past games). things similar to gouken : body shape, cr.hk, palm move, chargeable fireball, can apparently parry like gouken and probably more i missing

#53
Creeper said on April 7, 2011 at 6:54 p.m.

@Swag
Yeah I don't know too much about the canon so I'm just guessing. I always figured Bison was kinda weak, but then again there's that boss Bison in the Alpha series. I also hadn't considered the fact that being "killed" by the Raging Demon really isn't indicative of fighting prowess. I think Gouken easily defeated Akuma in a first fight but then was "killed" in a second, and Gill was "killed" by it but then resurrected.

#54
Jerry said on April 7, 2011 at 6:58 p.m.

There is no way Oro is under Cody without handcuffs and on par with Ryu. Oro beat Ryu like nothing.

#55
cloudstrife360 said on April 7, 2011 at 7:02 p.m.

Oni is a crazy masturbator that sometimes runs around the world every couple of days. He'll stop by his equally powerful friend Dan's dojo every now and then to go out, enjoy some ice cream, and maybe splooge in ken's wife, but mostly he sits in his mountain cave and masturbates.

#56
WinstonChurchill said on April 7, 2011 at 7:04 p.m.

Oni is Oni

#57
Escoobi said on April 7, 2011 at 7:04 p.m.

I bet anything the boss version of Oni is gonna shoot 2 fireballs and cancel everything in one of these ultras, can't wait to fight him

Is the source of the artwork from Capcom? If yes, why do you put EH watermark on it.

#61
Swag said on April 7, 2011 at 7:21 p.m.

#61
because eventhub owns capcom

#62
sanosuke123 said on April 7, 2011 at 7:50 p.m.

When Gouken life spirit formed to life after akuma killed him, another entity was formed too, which is Oni.

this is if the game had some kingdom hearts.

#63
redstormer said on April 7, 2011 at 7:52 p.m.

Hm i just can't seem to See if the symbol right Because Shin-akuma and oni symbol almost looks the same for raging demon

#64
Hakansoilbarrel said on April 7, 2011 at 7:54 p.m.

(As long as Juri doesn't single-handedly defeat 2 more powerful villains without really trying, I'll take w/e "story" Capcom wants to throw at me.)

#65
Triforce said on April 7, 2011 at 8:16 p.m.

Ultra 2 is sick as hell. What Akuma should've had already.

#66
juanrock said on April 7, 2011 at 8:16 p.m.

@61

i agree man, you should never put your watermark in something that is not yours

anyway i dont care for shotos even if they are unique like gouken or oni, nothing against them (well, ken doeas anoy me a litle) but they are not my thing.

i just want the tweaks, cant wait to try my buffed sakura and makoto

#67
CrimsonRelic said on April 7, 2011 at 8:24 p.m.

He looks cool. They should put him in mvc3 though IMO it would look cool

dmgoodr said on April 7, 2011 at 8:46 p.m.

Akuma=the most powerful stalker of all time

#70
chunlishusband said on April 7, 2011 at 8:53 p.m.

These On Akuma's ultras are nasty. Jeez. It would it been good if you were able to see the impact. But both ultras expand way too much. I always like to see the ultras that are so closed up. For instance, Gouken's shin shoryuken. Getting someone with that feels way much better than these Akuma ultras. Bison's second ultra. Feels so good getting a viper or a cammy and see their faces ;3

#71
omegax9000 said on April 7, 2011 at 8:57 p.m.

@ # 33 For sure!

#72
Deadds said on April 7, 2011 at 9:01 p.m.

@GUNNAH_MAN

wtf lol no. he can't parry. Running slash is not like gouken's running palm. no fake fireball.

#73
Endgame said on April 7, 2011 at 9:04 p.m.

denaycous_dee85 said on April 7, 2011 at 9:27 p.m.

how many ultra 1 & 2 versions does he have. very scary, think oni is gonna be better then akuma & eryu. ultras upclose, from a far, after fadc.then his super. amazing to be honest, i would love to see tokido main this guy. his health souldnt be a problem if you know what your doing. surprised theres no vids of tokido using him.

#77
Swag said on April 7, 2011 at 9:47 p.m.

#77 even if Tokido uses him the video cannot be uploaded in internet cuz its illegal until capcom reveals it officially.

#78
denaycous_dee85 said on April 7, 2011 at 9:51 p.m.

always thought sf4 was after 3rd strike. gotta do some research. as for strong characters, E ryu, akuma, gen(young) in his prime, bison, gouken, oro(UNKNOWN), gill(because of his resurrection)cheap. not game wise, but story/manga.

#79
denaycous_dee85 said on April 7, 2011 at 9:52 p.m.

swag, thats $ucks.

#80
denaycous_dee85 said on April 7, 2011 at 9:59 p.m.

gill is kinda iffy, how does he get all that power??? urein is a downgrade, as to ryu from akuma. bison with his pcycho, akuma dark hadou, gen,(obviously)mad skill and determination, gill??????????

#81
denaycous_dee85 said on April 7, 2011 at 10 p.m.

would love to learn more about oro.

#82
Jerry said on April 7, 2011 at 10:06 p.m.

Oro is an old man who is apparently so powerful, he had one arm binded so that he would fight with one arm to keep himself from killing his opponent. He beat Ryu in the tournament like nothing.
Also,

HE CAN DO A SPIRIT BOMB!!!

#83
GeniusInsanity said on April 7, 2011 at 10:08 p.m.

Oni is obviously the lovechild of every shotokan fighter and Sakura...simple as that

#84
The_True_Gouki said on April 7, 2011 at 10:11 p.m.

Enough with the over thinking there people. Rest assured, Oni is a higher and perhaps highest level of Gouki (Akuma). Gosh it's truly amazing how far some of you will take such simple things. Aside from the brain dead fact that such graphics and even story arc for that matter weren't created or developed as much back in the days of Third Strike and before, See Gouki's need to transform into Oni as something simply over driving him just as this Evil Ryu for AE seems to be altered and 'overdriven.'

It could very well be the fact that Gouken has reappeared after such a long absence, which hey guys that too was not brought up in SF3! But if you are seriously trying to make sense of this crazy madness of a storyline that is Street Fighter, much like I do admittedly, why not at least be rational to the fact that again, story wasn't as progressed or thought about and graphics weren't as advanced as now, and just say for the hell of it that in Street Fighter 3, everyone decided to become mutes for the most part and just focussed on fighting rather than Ken asking Gouki, "Dude, wtf was with you a few years back when you went ballistic with rage and turned blue? Oh and wasn't it sweet for my master Gouken to come around again? Say isn't he your brother?"

Just because newer and more flashy things are able to exist now, doesn't mean anything from the past has to change. Granted they did want the story to happen before SF3's storyline, which I knew would mess everything up canonly, don't expect them to care too much for explaining their actions. They haven't exactly shown the best record of a comprehensible storyline anyway. Oni = Gouki/Akuma

Btw
Oni > True Gouki & Both Armed Oro > Gill > Gouki, Oro & Evil Ryu > End of caring.

#85
Sektah84 said on April 7, 2011 at 10:14 p.m.

@malda you love d*ck riding sfiv. It's not the best sf of all time cut that sh*t out b. I undestand it's your opinion but you over do it. IMO Alpha3 was and is the best hands down screw what the Haters say. Mvc3 is meant to be fun and mindless. Mvc2 passed it's prime get over it. Ssfiv is a gpod game don't get it twisted. It's the best fighter of it it's kind but IMO it's missing something that the original sf2 and alpha 3 had. 3rd strike was technically an amazing game same goes for the graphics but it had lame characters. Just my 2 cents.

#86
denaycous_dee85 said on April 7, 2011 at 10:17 p.m.

but what are oro's powers, where does he reside,(wheres he from?), JERRY, that spirit bomb is awesome. oro seems powerful then all the fighters i named and posted.

#87
The_True_Gouki said on April 7, 2011 at 10:19 p.m.

One more thing I forgot to mention. Gouki's famous 天 kanji is ink blotted at the end of Tenchi Sokaigen (Ultra 2). Oni Gouki ftw.

#88
Swag said on April 7, 2011 at 10:20 p.m.

#85
sorry to care but why Gill so overrated? because of the resurrection?
he got beaten by Ken in jap manga "Ryu Final" vol 2.
i think Gill and Seth's power is about same and weaker than M.Bison.

#89
Jerry said on April 7, 2011 at 10:22 p.m.

Read about Oro:
http://streetfighter.wikia.com/wiki/Oro
Kinda sucks that he's low tier in 3rd Strike, though.

#90
denaycous_dee85 said on April 7, 2011 at 10:26 p.m.

sigh, capcom and its crazy story backgrounds. didnt gen beat akuma???

#91
The_True_Gouki said on April 7, 2011 at 10:26 p.m.

My bad, you are totally correct on that note. Kinda thought there was something wrong with Gill being right there but didn't really think twice.

#92
BK said on April 7, 2011 at 10:27 p.m.

oni's u1 almost looks like the goken fireball idea i mentioned on here bout a year ago.

#93
The_True_Gouki said on April 7, 2011 at 10:32 p.m.

Fixed!

Oni > True Gouki & Both Armed Oro > Psycho Dictator > Gouki, Oro & Evil Ryu > Gouken, Gen, Dictator, Sagat & Ryu. F*ck if I missed any.

#94
Jerry said on April 7, 2011 at 10:33 p.m.

From what I know, I believe Gen and Akuma fought, but Akuma stopped cuz he saw that Gen was ill, so he didn't think it would be fair to continue fighting.

#95
manboy said on April 7, 2011 at 10:52 p.m.

The AE poster with newly added evil ryu and oni is evidence that there will not be any more characters added to the game. I may be wrong, and I hope I am, but it doesn't look like there is room left for anyone else :(
