Special Moves

Hadouken (Fireball)

QCF+P (all games); "Ryu's Hadouken" card (UFS); "Hadouken" ability (CFC); (Nothing or U or D) + Long Range (NvC)
The Hadouken is the signature move of Ryu and of fighting games in general. Ryu gathers Chi into an energy ball and releases that energy towards an opponent. Ryu had this capability in the original Street Fighter I game and has had it in every appearance. When Ken was altered to play slightly differently than Ryu, Ryu was given a more powerfull Hadouken than Ken, while Ken was given a more powerfull Shoryuken. This move is always performed with QCF+P. The higher the strength of the punch button pressed, the faster the hadouken travels across the screen. The Hadouken is about half the size of a Ryu and is released at chest-level. In games that don't have a Shakunetsu Hadouken, this move will knock down an opponent and set them on fire if it lands while they are very near to Ryu. In Pocket Fighter, the higher the level of this move, the larger the Hadouken and the more hits it deals (level 3 is red and knocks back, but does not set the opponent on fire). In the Marvel Vs. Capcom series, this hadouken is HUGE (about the same size as Ryu). It can also be launched straight forwards while in the air.

Its UFS card says "This card may be played as a block against any ranged attack as if this card had a mid block of +0. E: If this attack deals damage, your opponent commits 1 foundation. Ryu E Destroy 1 foundation: Draw 1 card." In CFC, this ability has "Discard 1 AC from hand. Do 200 damage to any one character".

Shakunetsu Hadouken (Red Fireball)

HCF+P (SSF2T-X, CvS2, SFA2G-3,CvS2); QCF+2P (SF3TS); HCB+P (SFEX); "Shakunetsu Hadouken" card (UFS); (F or B) + Long Range (NvC)
In Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo, Ryu gained a slower, more powerfull, and red version of the Hadouken. This move will set an opponent on fire. If thrown from a distance, they will be stunned for a short time. If performed close-up, they will be knocked down. In most games, this move can be performed by doing a half circle instead of a quarter circle forward (HCF+P). In Street Fighter 3: Third Strike, Ryu can perform a similar red fireball (the EX version of the Hadouken, consumes energy) by pressing two punch buttons at the same time while performing a normal Hadouken. UFC Card Text is "This card may be played as a block against any ranged attack as if this card had a mid block of +0. E: Gain 2 vitality. Only playable if your opponent committed foundations due to this attack's Stun ability."

Shoryuken (Dragon Punch)

DP+P (all games), DP+2P (SF3TS); "Ryu's Shoryuken" card (UFS); U+Short (NvC)
Ryu and Ken have had had the Shoryuken move since Street Fighter I. It is a rising dragon uppercut attack which moves slightly forwards (though not as forwards as Ken's would later do). This move eventually became Ken's signature move and Ryu was given a less powerfull version of the attack. Ryu's version is typically much more vertical than Ken's, though it does have some forwards motion. The higher the strength of the punch button used, the higher, farther, and harder the attack. The EX version of this move in Street Fighter 3: Third Strike happens when two punches are pressed at the same time while executing the move, can hit twice and has more forward motion like Ken's Shoryuken. In SF1, this move will crush guards (FAQ/Movelist). In Pocket Fighter, the stronger the level, the higher it goes. It is imbued with lightning at level 2 and will shock the opponent at level 3. The UFS card text is "E Discard 1 card: Draw 1 card. Ryu R: Before you draw a card, this attack gets +2 damage instead."

Tatsumaki Senpukyaku (Hurricane Kick)

QCB+K (all games); "Hurricane Kicks" card (EB, see Evil Ryu); "Ryu's Tatsumaki Senpukyaku" card (UFS); (F or B) + Short (NvC)
The Tatsumaki Senpukyaku is the third basic move characteristic of the Shotokan style of martial arts. Ryu leaps straight in the air with one leg while the other spins around in a fierce hurricane kick. While spinning, Ryu travels horizontally forwards across the screen. The higher the strength of the kick button used, the longer, farther, and harder the attack. In Street Fighter II Turbo and most games since, this move can be performed in the air. The "Shinkuu Tatsumaki Senpuu Kyaku" is a super-version of this move. In Pocket Fighter, the higher the level, the farther it travels. It is imbued with lightning at level 2 and will shock an opponent at level 3.

In the Street Fighter EX series, this move only performs one twisting air kick, which can be repeated up to four times while still in the air. The weaker the kick, the higher Ryu travels upwards. The stronger the kick, the more forward motion is gained. This move cannot be started while in the air.

The UFS card text is "R: After you play this card as a block, you and your opponent each draw 2 cards. Only playable if the difficulty of the blocked attack is equal to or greater than this card's printed difficulty."

Joudan Sokotou Geri

HCF+K (SF3), HCF+2K (SF3TS); "Jodan Shokuto Geri" card (UFS)
In the Street Fighter 3 Series of games, Ryu has a special forwards sidekick that sends his opponent flying. It is performed with HCF+K. The EX version (consumes energy meter) bounces your opponent off of the wall for a juggling opportunity. UFS card text is "E Discard X momentum: If this attack is blocked, draw X cards. X cannot be greater than the damage of this attack."

Its EB card text is "The first time this card is played, choose 2 attacks in your energy pile without "Ryu's" in the title and use the texts on those cards except for "HIT -" texts."
