BIO:

At the end of the first World Warrior tournament, Ryu was losing his battle against Sagat. For a second, he embraced the Satsui no Hadou (also known as "killing intent" or "evil intent") and used a Metsu Shoryuken on Sagat, scarring and defeating him with rage and hate. After this, Ryu's killing side never reappeared. Evil Ryu is "what if" version of Ryu, not a separate entity. Despite the brief temptation from the Satsui no Hadou, Ryu rejected it and once again studied under Master Gouken to attempt to become as powerful as he once did as Evil Ryu.

Evil Ryu was originally a basic palette swap of Ryu and/or Akuma, but the design has developed immensely over the years. The idea of the character alone(and the storyline behind him is quite inspiring, actually. There is evil in us all, even deep inside Street Fighter's #1 good guy, Ryu. Whether we act upon our evil side is our choice, and a battle we all face . . . Deep stuff. ;)

Evil Ryu has always been a fun-to-use alt. version of Ryu, especially for those of us who never get tired of using those shotos. Capcom progressively fleshed out Evil Ryu in every sequel he appeared in. My personal favorite is CVS1 / CVS2 Evil Ryu. He looks so "silently" pissed off and badass in that series (which is how his design should be, if you ask me). Evil Ryu's return in SSF4: AE turned out decent for the most part - most notably his moveset, which distinguishes the character apart from Ryu more than ever before. However, I'm not much a fan of the SSF4: AE visual design... what's with that stupidly spiky, cherry-red hair (DBZ much?). That's not the Evil Ryu I've known all these years. So are those little red pyramids on his head, or what? :/ Aside from the hair, no complaints. . . (but "Classic" Evil Ryu FTW)!
