During Fei Long's episode, Ryu has a cousin named Sachi who is being held captive along with her friend at Bison's hands before Guile and his group rescues them. The only visual representation of what may be the Hadoken is during a side-story fight with Vega nearing the climax to the film.

His take on the unnamed Ansatsuken style added with his own take on Shotokan, focuses on powerful singular strikes that usually knock the foe down, and is centered around his trademark Hadoken. With Ohma racing towards him, Evil Ryu then launched another Metsu Hadoken but Ohma skilfully avoided it and launched a flurry of hits before knocking out Ryu for good. Ryu is an orphan boy who is raised by a martial arts master named "Gouken" in the mountains of Japan after he was saved by Gouken from a burning store that Akuma started when Ryu's mother was killed. Ryu is an optional leader for Dragoncraft decks. The former suddenly sensed an unknown power coming from Ryu, occupying him long enough for Honda to get the upper hand.
