|First Appearence:||Street Fighter Alpha 2|
This alternate version of Ryu first came about in the Street Fighter Alpha series under the name “Evil Ryu” or “Satsui no Hadou ni Mezameta Ryu”. He made his first actual appearance in Street Fighter Zero, a manga series which ties in with the main Street Fighter canon. This form of Ryu was birthed after our hero succumbed to the Satsui no Hadou(translated as “Evil Intent”), regardless of his efforts to resist the evil energy. In-game, this version of Ryu is obviously more powerful than the original, with enhanced speed and some signature moves similar to that of Akuma. Evil Ryu’s official Japanese symbol is Metsu, which translates as “Destruction”.

Ryu bids his farewells as he journeys to find a way to supress the Satsui no Hadou.
 Fighting Style
Evil Ryu's fighting style is very smilar to Akuma's. He has a lot of the same moves as like his normal self does, but with the power of the Satsui no Hadou he has also developed several of the same moves Akuma has.
 Special Moves
Hadouken (Surge Fist): Ryu's basic move. But Evil Ryu's is purple as opposed to Ryu's blue colored move.
Shoryuken (Rising Dragon Fist): This move is the same as Ryu's.
Tatsumakisenpuukyaku (Tornado Spinning Legs): This move is the same as Akuma's. It hits 3 times and sends the opponent in the air.
Ashura Zanku (Fighting Demon Flashing Ai)r: The teleportation move derived from the Satsui no Hadou. Evil Ryu can move from one part of the arena to the other in a flash. He's invulnerable while performing this move.
 Super Combos
Messatsu Gou Hadou (Destructive Hyper Surge): Evil Ryu's form of this move does less damage and less hits than Akuma's.
Messatsu Gou Shoryu (Destrctive Hyper Rising Dragon): Evil ryu's move is different from Akuma's. As he performs what is smilar to Ken's Shoryureppa. He also sends his opponent fling into the air and infuse his fist with the Hadou and slams his opponent into the ground.
Shungokusatsu (Raging Demon): It's the same as Akuma's move. The true essence of the Satsui no Hadou.
