Evil Ryu (殺意の波動に目覚めたリュウ, Satsui no Hadō ni Mezameta Ryū, "Ryu who has Awakened to the Surge of Killing Intent", Satsui Ryu in short), or Dark Ryu in the UDON comics, is the alter-ego of Ryu, the main protagonist of Street Fighter series.


The Legacy of Evil RyuEdit

  • Street Fighter Alpha 2 (1996-2011)
  • Street Fighter Alpha 3 (1998-2011)
  • Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition (2010-2011)
    • ​Ultra Street Fighter IV (2014)


Evil Ryu previously appeared as a palette swap of Ryu wearing a black gi, though the Alpha series also gives him a black head band. His skin also becomes a slightly darker shade along with his hair. From the SNK vs. Capcom series onward, he has been depicted with red pupils, although some games leave his eyes entirely red.

In Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, his design was given an update, taking on a much more feral appearance with traits taken from Akuma. He appears far more menacing and powerful; his eyes now glow, his costume and headband are torn, and his hair has Akuma's spikiness and reddish tint. Most notable of all is a gaping hole burned into his chest, with a similar scar on his back that bears a glowing 'Ten' kanji.


As Evil Ryu, he becomes quite demonic and rage-driven; while his anger is not mindless, he has cast aside his respectful ways. Like Akuma, he enjoys power, and seeks strong warriors to fight to the death with. He truly hates what he perceives as weakness from humanity, such as love, family, justice and vengeance. He is also extremely brutal towards fighters in general, especially those that try to oppose him. Also like Akuma, Evil Ryu is also dark and completely cold-blooded, and refers to himself as a demon.

As a boss character, Evil Ryu alludes to his heartlessness often, as heard and seen in many of his prefight and win quotes.

Theme SongEdit

Evil Ryu's theme song is from Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition. This music is similar to Akuma's theme.
