Ground attacks

Attack Name State Description Damage
Standard attack N/A Weak A jab, followed by a short straight-punch, followed by a hook. Tapping the button without Ryu hitting anything makes him repeat the first hit as fast as the player can tap. TBA
Strong A spinning hook kick. Despite being categorized as a neutral attack, it has deceptively high knockback.
Forward tilt Weak The tsumasaki geri, a kick used in Karate. It launches opponents diagonally upward. TBA
Collarbone Breaker
Strong An overhand punch. Despite its appearance, it hits twice much like the original version. Deals very high shield damage, but its start-up makes it difficult to use on quick opponents.
Up tilt N/A Weak The sok ngat, an uppercut-style elbow strike used in Muay Thai. It can be used repeatedly as fast as the player can press the attack button, which allows it to chain into itself and lead into many of Ryu's moves for a quick finisher. Despite its appearance, it has decent range. TBA
Strong An uppercut. Strong for its speed and grants his upper body intangibility from frames 4-10, making it a surprisingly effective anti-air attack and KO move.
Down tilt Light Ankle Kick Weak A crouching, Hapkido-style shin kick. It can be repeated as fast as the player can press, similar to his other tapped tilts. TBA
Heavy Ankle Kick Strong A crouching, Hapkido-style shin kick. It can be repeated as fast as the player can press, similar to his other tapped tilts.
Forward smash Jōdan Sokutō Geri
N/A A lunging side kick. Moves him slightly forward and has the highest range of all his standard attacks, as it is able to hit opponents two character lengths away from him. However, it has noticeable ending lag. TBA
Up smash N/A Squats and then rises up to throw an uppercut. Makes his hurtbox smaller while attacking, making this a good anti-air attack. Slight ending lag and does not have much horizontal range. TBA
Down smash A legsweep. Launches opponents at a diagonal angle and unlike most down smashes, it only hits in one direction. Has the fastest start-up of all of his smash attacks, with more range than his up smash but less than his forward smash, making it also his safest smash attack at a distance. TBA
Dash attack A flying kick. Possesses high base knockback for a dash attack and it can reliably combo into many of his tapped attacks as a finisher. TBA

Aerial attacks

Attack Name Description Damage
Neutral aerial N/A A downward angled knee strike. Its limited range is compensated by its sex kick properties and very low ending lag. TBA
Forward aerial Tobigeri A flying kick. Ryu's foot has high launching power, while his upper leg has a sourspot and deals less damage. Despite this, the sourspot deals high shield damage. TBA
Back aerial Senpūkyaku
An outside crescent kick. Though it has a small hitbox, its strength and fast start-up make it Ryu's most powerful aerial and a viable KOing option. KOs at 115%. TBA
Up aerial Sukui Tsuki An uppercut. Despite its appearance, it hits twice, has good vertical range, and is reliable at catching opponents above Ryu. TBA
Down aerial Straight Punch A downward, fast angled cross. Hitting an airborne opponent with the attack's sweetspot will meteor smash the opponent, while hitting an airborne opponent with the sourspot launches the opponent diagonally upward with high knockback. TBA

Grab and throws

Attack Name Description Damage
Grab N/A Reaches out. Ryu's overall grab range is short. It is based on his grab animation in Street Fighter III. N/A
Pummel A knee strike while holding the opponent in the collar-and-elbow position. A fairly fast pummel. Based on Ken's Tsukami Hizageri (つかみ膝蹴り) from the Street Fighter Alpha/Zero games. TBA
Forward throw The seoi nage, a Judo throw. TBA
Back throw Somersault Drop The tomoe nage, a Judo throw. TBA
Up throw Heel Drop A stretch kick transitioned into an axe kick. It can combo into an aerial attack at low percents. While the axe kick cannot hit the thrown opponent, it can nevertheless hit another opponent that is too close to Ryu. Unlike the stretch kick, the axe kick deals much more damage and has high knockback. TBA
Down throw N/A Pins the opponent to the ground and performs a knifehand strike. TBA

Other attacks

Attack Description Damage
Floor attack TBA
Ledge attack TBA

  • Steven had showed some of Ryu's sprites on his DeviantArt page years ago. The animation was removed weeks after, however.
  • His trailer which included Goku and Lucario was a reference to their fighting origins. Goku, like Ryu, is a martial artist while Lucario is a "fighting" type Pokemon who can learn fighting type attacks and various martial arts.
    • In the Super Smash Bros. Brawl mod, Project M, Lucario received some of Ryu's moves in the Street Fighter games for its moveset, like the Shoryuken for its up smash, and Tatsumaki Senpukyaku for its neutral aerial.
