Ryu () is a veteran in the game Super Smash Bros. Universe. He represents the Street Fighter franchise, and his design has been changed his most recent appearance in Street Fighter V. In addition to retaining his playstyle and moveset from SSB4, Ryu now has a new Transformation Final Smash where he succumbs to the power of the "Satsui no Hado" and gains powered up attacks and new moves. Unlike other Final Smashes, Ryu can stay within the Evil Ryu form until a number of inputs will return him to normal. Ken Masters of the Street Fighter franchise also appears as an alternate skin of Ryu complete with his own voice clips, and special effects. Because of this, Ken also has the same ability as Ryu, and can transform in Violent Ken as well. Ryu's move have now been designed to most resemble their Street Fighter V versions.
