Who is this guy? Capcom is really bringing out some obscure characters for this game.

daddy said on July 7, 2010 at 11:08 a.m.

It looks like Street Fighter guy is going to be one of the stronger fighters

omegax9000 said on July 7, 2010 at 3 p.m.

I swear ive seen this guy from some place

AnsatsukenChamp said on July 8, 2010 at 3:24 p.m.

Dude, plz tell me ur jokin, otherwise u must have been living under a rock for all ur life, if u dont, u need psychiatric help

Johnry said on July 14, 2010 at 6:11 a.m.


He doesn't need to put LOL at the end!
I'm still amazed at how many of you Americans don't understand sarcasm!

Nice one btw, Grondt. I think it's because Capcom got annoyed with people constantly using the more popular characters like Ruby Heart and Sonson and want to mix things up a bit.

JBHCaptain said on July 14, 2010 at 12:40 p.m.

@10 America owns sarcasm they are just stupid.

Danielq94 said on July 14, 2010 at 6:41 p.m.

Oh Look It's ken's boyfreind suprise, suprise i suppose i'm going to have to fight millions of these online in this as well, he's so basic & boring, what a waste of a a slot, oh and people who are moaning about ken not being in this game go suck yourselves.

Katrinaj94 said on July 14, 2010 at 6:41 p.m.

Oh surprise surprise look who have capcom have chosen Ryu once again you cannot escape this dude i hate how they use this poster boy all the time and how everybody uses him online seriously people cant you use a more complex character instead of this basic one!

Danielq94 said on July 14, 2010 at 6:42 p.m.

oh p.s i'm a little drunk so excuse the grammar

Katrinaj94 said on July 14, 2010 at 6:44 p.m.

Me too im drunk with him ;)

darthmegas said on July 21, 2010 at 10:02 a.m.

Well some people lack the skill to play advanced characters so they have no choice. like when i play guilty gear ACP imy characters are Slayer and Faust. i cant stand easy characters like order-sol and Ky and Sol. if i play them i dont feel challenged.

Sakura said on July 24, 2010 at 10:23 p.m.

I too am sick of looking @ this guy's ugly mug...

but we all knew he'd be in the game...

SamJay123 said on July 28, 2010 at 9:33 a.m.

he looks old...

Wolfie said on July 28, 2010 at 12:42 p.m.

O.O Wtf at Daniel and Katrina obviously the same person talking to himself like a freak.

blackmanbista69 said on July 29, 2010 at 4 a.m.

@ 12+13
im pretty sure 99.99% of the people you will see online will be using ryu/deadpool/dante

Katrinaj94 said on July 30, 2010 at 4:49 a.m.

@19 Hey don't call my boyfriend a freak you idiot!
We are two people not the same person noob!

SamJay123 said on July 31, 2010 at 8:06 p.m.

#20 I bet your right

NumbahHwan said on August 4, 2010 at 4:21 a.m.

why are you all hating on the ryu man, for me if capcom had a subtitle it would be hadoken

SamJay123 said on August 4, 2010 at 7:19 p.m.

im not hating... am i? (cries)

Gbahole1 said on August 5, 2010 at 6:48 a.m.

what is this i dont even-

blargh_im_ded said on August 6, 2010 at 2:29 p.m.

surprised this site doesnt list his shin shoryuken yet, we all know its gonna be there, just like every other game he appears in, well most games he appears in

VideoKid106 said on August 14, 2010 at 5:57 p.m.

Hope they don't put Ken, Akuma, Sakura and Dan, they would be such a waste... with Ryu is enough.

Kijui said on August 17, 2010 at 6:53 p.m.

Dan is all Capcom needs. We need a useless Marvel character becauss Dan is the greatest of them.

SF4junkie said on September 14, 2010 at 12:16 a.m.

Why not another SF Character for once...like i dont know...C.Viper? BLANKA! then again who are all the noobs gonna use right?

FanOfDanTheMan said on September 29, 2010 at 4:49 p.m.

You can't have a Capcom cross-over game without the legendary Ryu.

He IS Street Fighter.

Tankverso said on October 8, 2010 at 12:07 p.m.

they have chun-li, who needs viper?

Shareware said on November 5, 2010 at 9:16 p.m.


Sogmor said on November 7, 2010 at 8:32 p.m.

Oh boy I can't wait to fight my Black suit, Jap VA Ryu/Dante/Chun Li teams.


Endgame said on November 17, 2010 at 10:19 a.m.

It would be funny if Ryu was revealed last(Though I feel this is what Capcom is doing to Megaman).

But the real interesting part about Ryu is that he has that Sliding High Kick from Street Fighter 3.

I wonder how much use that would be.

Rafael2487 said on November 21, 2010 at 11:03 a.m.

wow his first game was like Street Fighter(1987)
and hes still kicking,
i hope they put ken or akuma in the game.

RetromanTiga said on November 23, 2010 at 9:01 a.m.

Im rootin for Gouken....his moveset is nothin like the other shotos...he would be perfect for this game.

darkstryder90 said on January 7, 2011 at 12:37 p.m.

they made ryu look like a lil kid on this game

Mr_Clack said on February 1, 2011 at 4:41 p.m.

who is this guy?

YoshinatorZ said on February 5, 2011 at 12:12 a.m.

I thought they got rid of his mule kick in this game. I hate that kick so much in TvC. Easiest combo setter ever. So annoying.

BlueHadou said on February 5, 2011 at 11:28 p.m.

@ #36 im sure you didn't play fighting games back then
@ #37 not really. The arena is bigger than tvc and it's harder to connect it. Also he deserves it in this game seeing he lost completely in range.

Lavama said on February 16, 2011 at 6:07 p.m.

@ #35 : I think he's supposed to be REALLY young in the VS. series. Because he looks younger in the character art for all of them than in his other games outside of Alpha and 1.

@ #36 : I don't know. Never heard of him. He looks like Lu Kang or something. Must be a Clone or something. Shoto just yells out, maybe a super flying punch. I've heard of Deadpool doing a Shoryuken, maybe? Maybe this is where it's from?

herrokitty said on February 20, 2011 at 7:04 p.m.

@ 32 if you are close to a corner you can combo it into his Shin

General_Awesomo said on February 22, 2011 at 12:43 p.m.

What's up with the pictures? Colors 2 and 4 are reversed. The guy that made those 2 pics made Ryu face leftwards and then just reversed the pictures. You can tell because his gi is supposed to go left over right, and his belt should have the motive on the right end. That's sloppy.

Flashy said on March 1, 2011 at 11:20 a.m.

Ha SF1 Ryu! ''What strength!,but don't don't forget...there are many men like you ALL over the world!''

Ex_Ein said on March 1, 2011 at 3:24 p.m.

SF one is beast of a mugen game

DestinyZX1 said on November 13, 2011 at 8:52 a.m.

I can tell the movelists are going to need an upgrade once Ultimate comes out.

Flashy said on November 22, 2011 at 1:25 a.m.


General_Awesomo said on December 6, 2011 at 12:42 p.m.

So yeah, the costume colors 2 and 4 used to be facing to the left and reversed. With the addition of the UMvC3 colors, they fixed this. I also like that the Capcom characters are facing right, while the Marvel character are facing left. That's neat, thanks.

FinalBisonFTW said on August 17, 2013 at 10:57 a.m.

Is there no end to the guy? I mean come on, maybe they should have replaced him or Akuma with, I dunno, Bison? His F. Psycho Crusher is literally MADE for this game! Also, I think it's about time Bison returned to his ORIGINAL role. But NOPE! They had to show complete distaste for him as a boss! Capcom is beginning to really bug me!
