Overview of Evil Ryu in Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • March 28, 2011 at 3:53 a.m. PDT
Giving an overview of Evil Ryu's various attributes and moves, GLHF.tv did this handy quick hitting video for Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition players.

It mostly focuses on what Evil Ryu's moves are and what they look like, but it also touches on some of his strengths/weaknesses and what his moves are capable of. Notes are included explaining the on screen action, making it easy to follow along with.

Tip from MarkySter.

Evil Ryu seems pretty sick, I hope capcom can release MORE chracters for the AE edition.

"Imagine Ryu with Akuma tricks"

That alone makes me want to ignore this video. It's not that you become Akuma with a crappy teleport and a red fireball, Gouki is about vortex.

Also, some stuff is just wrong:

- Low stun, too: according to the reports it was 950. That's "okay", not as low as his health (850).

- Akuma style sweep: it just looks the same, but it's different. Take a look at the hitbox there, it's short. Also it's slower.

That cr.MK might be slow but the range is scary.

Still, decent vid for those who missed all the vids from the unlock days.

So the new character is Akuma with Ryu's body?

Capcom...Lazy Much?

Is his fireball ultra unblockable or does a sh*t load of chip damage

duckmouth said on March 28, 2011 at 4:30 a.m.

Not trolling (honestly), but what's the point of him then? Isn't Akuma better?

@3
A lazy Evil Ryu would be Ryu with a dark blue gi (like Alpha 3).
At least they did graphical changes...

I see ur a glass half full kinda guy.

@2 Akuma about vortex?

Maybe that's how you play him, but I'm more into all his fireballs and teleport. Vortex always sounds boring to me.

GUNNAH_MAN said on March 28, 2011 at 5:09 a.m.

wow this vid basically explain why this character is a waste lool who's going to use evil ryu over akuma in a pro like match ?

#9
GUNNAH_MAN said on March 28, 2011 at 5:14 a.m.

@saikyoryu

you should then understand your not on the level of play "gtfopanda" is talking about as you ignore his real strength which is mix ups but because akuma's is so good they name his vortex.

#10
SAMURAI said on March 28, 2011 at 5:30 a.m.

Is that wheelkick a useful move? It looks very slow.

#11
Speakertag said on March 28, 2011 at 5:32 a.m.

@8 Boring to you, it's high-level play nonetheless. How you play Akuma doesn't make his strengths any less good.

@gunnah_scrub Way to talk rubbish before you find out or know anything about a character.

@4 Blockable, at least from what I've experienced at my arcade.

Hakansoilbarrel said on March 28, 2011 at 6:12 a.m.

(Can't tell the difference between Ultra 1 hold/no hold, but ok.)

#13
GUNNAH_MAN said on March 28, 2011 at 6:16 a.m.

@speakertag

Anyone can clearly tell evil ryu is just solid, theres no wow factor about him, as this vid has pointed out his normals are like ryu's with a bit more range making his footsie game a bit better than ssf4 ryu's but still nothing to great, moves like his teleport and his sweep seems less effective than akuma's, evil ryu has no demon flip and has no air fireball to create a wide variety of offensive opportunities, the axe kick he has seems like it would give frame adv so im going to assume thats how he keep close but overall evil ryu was a waste and isn't needed.

#14
SAMURAI said on March 28, 2011 at 6:18 a.m.

And is it possible to combo into his ultra 2? And i mean with the full animation.

#15
Temtt said on March 28, 2011 at 6:30 a.m.

@15 SAMURAI

yes, it is possible. EX Fireball-FADC-Ultra 2.

#16
NINJA said on March 28, 2011 at 7:16 a.m.

So cool, Akuma gets more shiny and a Ryu skin. This is pathetic.

Just give us Rolento and Charlie already. People bitch about Charlie being Guile and then applaud this bulls-it.

Compared to this skin change, Charlie is endless times different from Guile. At least he has his own different moves. even if Guile's moves are similar, they are different.
This is exactly Akuma with a new move.

#17
MrPavy said on March 28, 2011 at 7:18 a.m.

are you kidding Guile and Charlie are the same only thing is their normals have different properties.

#18
Tsu83 said on March 28, 2011 at 7:49 a.m.

not much work for capcom here. that should mean we get some more fighters if it comes as DLC!

@8 are you kidding? it's the most boring thing in SF to face a fleeing akuma online. jump fireball and teleport when cornered. i think theres no cheaper fighting 'technique' than that. maybe dhalsim would be a better choice..

#19
RandomJohn said on March 28, 2011 at 7:52 a.m.

What combos are there that we haven't seen? Other than his fadc U2 combos, it's Ryu and Akuma combos since he has Ryu and Akuma normals and specials.

#20
ContentBlock said on March 28, 2011 at 7:59 a.m.

i wish they mad ultra 2 for akuma like evil ryu's ultra 1 or ultra 2. akuma has the worst ulta in the game. impossible as hell to land. they could have given him a fireball ultra in the air. ima play wit evil ryu since he is a basic rip of akuma with better ultra's and a RD super.
capcom step ur game up next time.

SSF4 AE will come 24th June 2011 according to this. new disc it is. hope there are many more characters then

#22
caruga said on March 28, 2011 at 8:12 a.m.

Good find. New disc might be PC version, consoles get DLC. At least I hope CAPCOM have the good sense to have it DLC on consoles.

#23
NABFear said on March 28, 2011 at 8:18 a.m.

@#21 ContentBlock You clearly haven't watched Tokido's Akuma well enough. Granted I'm no better and can't land Akuma's Ultra I for s***, but still with enough practice (not even upto a pro standard) you can land it flawlessly and with great timing.

#24
ButterKnife said on March 28, 2011 at 8:27 a.m.

He's even more dull than I imagined.

Good editing on the video at least.

#25
MrPavy said on March 28, 2011 at 8:32 a.m.

Thanks capcom for not adding -Rolento karin R.mika Alex Q Hugo Urien Gill Skullmania Elena instead you added another akuma

#26
AeriALs said on March 28, 2011 at 8:36 a.m.

He isn't like Akuma lol. He may have a couple similar moves, but his playstyle isnt based on wake-up games lol. He;s heavily dependant on his cr.mk fireball game, so that seems more ryu to me, but his combos are way longer and much more damaging than both. He's different than both of them, despite the moveset being similar.

#27
SSJ3X said on March 28, 2011 at 8:50 a.m.

He seems to be more about the rushdown and taking some risks. He may have a few things that are Akuma-esque, but he plays more like Ryu, he's more linear.

He also doesn't have a vortex style game like Akuma does, plus you can choose to either be aggressive with Akuma, or defensive by using his air fireballs froma distance.

I thought i read somewhere that his cr. mk can't combo into the fireball because it was slow, but cr.mp can.

Overall, an interesting character, that I'm sure many will be using.

#28
GodPride said on March 28, 2011 at 8:55 a.m.

Such a waste.

#29
GUNNAH_MAN said on March 28, 2011 at 8:58 a.m.

As "AeriALs" says he doesn't play like akuma, hes basically a better ryu but poor players aren't really likely to stick to him because of the low health and they soon realise that mashing SRK only gets you defeated quicker

#30
GUNNAH_MAN said on March 28, 2011 at 9 a.m.

@SSJ3X

I think you might have read cr.jab cant link to cr.mk because that cant link.

#31
Raven said on March 28, 2011 at 10:20 a.m.

Evil Ryu looks devastating....his Ultra 2 animation is amazing.

Seriously, it's bad ass. Akuma needs a vicious ultra like that as well, I still hate his ultra 2 and it can be dodged by crouching or back dashing....lol. I cringe every time an Akuma tries it and whiffs.

#32
Darkyellow said on March 28, 2011 at 10:21 a.m.

His ultra looks cool so he must be good huh? I can dig it.

#33
Darkyellow said on March 28, 2011 at 10:27 a.m.

I like how in the video the 3rd Strike shoto sweep was called the Akuma sweep while the 3rd Strike crouch mk wasn't called T.Hawk's crouch mk.

#34
Hitstick said on March 28, 2011 at 10:57 a.m.

Evil Ryu is the same as his other version counterparts [Capcom vs SNK and Alpha 3] where he has little health and can get dizzy very fast. However he does a more damage than Ryu. Nothing new here....

#35
NINJA said on March 28, 2011 at 12:10 p.m.

@MrPavy

Normals?
2011 and you never played Charlie huh. Pretty sad. And you're talking about normals properties when we are talking about a character coming for a completely different engine? Seriously...

@Raven

Devastatingly boring. Yeah.

#36
yuenyun said on March 28, 2011 at 12:13 p.m.

He plays almost exactly like old ryu, just throw in some akuma tactics. I honestly feel like his teleport (and most other moves) are extremely sluggish... almost feels like you're playing online with lag lol. Even his stomp (only ex hits overhead) is slow. Gives plenty of time to read the overhead, especially since the only one you need to block high is flashing.

#37
gaoser said on March 28, 2011 at 12:22 p.m.

They forgot about E.Ryu's target combo.

#38
gaoser said on March 28, 2011 at 12:22 p.m.

And his hop kick.

I can just imagine the Dev Team's thought process when it came to deciding the new characters.

Dev 1: "Hmm, what about Q?"

Dev 2: "We can't do that, he has a dash punch and Balrog has a dash punch. It's UNORIGINAL."

Dev 1: "Some people like Necro. What about him?"

Dev 2: "NO, he's too much like Blanka and Dhalsim except that he his primary strength is corner pressure, but he can't really rushdown, and his normals have no priority."

Dev 1: "What about Urien?"

Dev 2: "We already gave Seth two of his moves and Seth is way more original and interesting."

Dev 1: "What about Evil Ryu? He'll be like Akuma with less mix-up, but he'll have this hole in his chest. We'll also give him a Shoryu Reppa ultra."

Dev 2: "YEAAAAAAAAHHH!!!!!"
