Here we have Ryu dodging bullets like they are nothing.
Here we have Ryu dodging bullets like they are nothing. 1 Second to 8 seconds.
At 2min 27 seconds we see him deliver a blow that puts a massive hole in the grond.
At 2min and 10 seconds we see Ryu hit someone with so much power they simply evaporate
1min and 40 seconds in, he hits a blast so hard into a building it simply crumbles.
Here we have whats left of someone who tried to fight him. The pic to the right is him punching someone so hard in the belly his fists almost pop out the other end. (pic is of the guys back)
I will also dig up a video where He is jumping at least 25 feet in the air at ease.
He we see him jumping from solid stone (he goes about 25-40 feet from the jump) the force it took to take him that high up smashed the stone as you can see.

I would love to see feats like this from cap please. :)
@e3zombie: Cap can also dodge bullets. He literally sees faster than normal humans.
For all the energy Ryu can dish out, Cap can absorb it thanks to his shield. He can also strike with enough force to hurt characters with superhuman durability.
I've always loved this fight. It is insanely close. Both of them have very impressive feats, my favorite being Ryu evaporating someone with a hadouken. But also dodging bullets, if he goes Dark Hadou, it's game over......... Cap has fought the Hulk, KO'd Rhino, fought Carnage. Jumped several stories and fought a bar full of Asgardian trolls. Cap only has one level, and that is peak human. Ryu can tap into some crazy power when he becomes evil Ryu.
@Ferro Vida: Lets say the blast is 8 feet by 8 feet, does it all go into the shield or just the part where the shield was?
You posted a picture of a guy with a hole that was blown in his chest by Ryu. That is not an 8 foot by 8 foot hole. That is small enough that Cap could block it. If it was a bigger blast he could either crouch down behind his shield or simply dodge it.
I'm a huge fan of the Street Fighter franchise and I am a bit bias, so while also a Cap supporter I will say that Ryu certainly has a better chance then most. Both are incredible fighters, and both are far faster and stronger then the norm. In a manga Ken tore the door off of a military vehicle. Ryu has kicked people through walls. Concrete and otherwise. Cap will hurt Ryu, and may have a chance if Ryu dosen't become possessed by the Dark Hadou. I say 10/10 Split. Cap has traded blows with some insane opponents.
How does Ryu win so easily? You guys underestimate Cap by a large margin. Canon Ryu is nowhere near the strongest character in the SF universe, and probably peak Human at best.
Ryu's strongest attack is the Metsu Shoryuken, an enhanced version of the Shoryuken, in which he taps into the dark energy of the Satsui No Hado. The force applied to the uppercut isnt even strong enough to burst through the Human Skull. So theres no way in hell he's getting through the shield. Someone with reflexes like Cap, should have no problem dodging Hadokens, and can easily be block it. The Tatsumaki kick leaves Ryu in a open position for attack, leaving him wide open to being knocked out.
Speed: Easily Cap
Skill: Unsure probably Ryu
Reflexes: Easily Cap
Look at the feats I posted on the first page, cap is a dead man.
@BloodsunX: The reason he is not that powerful in the game is that everyone must be balanced or it would be a crappy game.
The key words to the post above is "canon Ryu".
Ryu from the animes or comics is non-canon, but beyond that, he has a point that Ryu has never shown the ability to do many of the things Cap has done, or has the versatility that Cap has.
As good and skilled as Ryu may be, Cap is faster, stronger, and more experienced based off the fact that Cap has fought through multiple wars, and his body is at the peak potential of a what a human could achieve. Ryu has canonical showing of fighting Bison heads up through skill and determination, and beating charcters like Sagat with the help of the dark hadou, but outside of those intances, Ryu is lacking.
In a fight betweeen the 2, Cap would get in close, and knock Ryu out with minimal effort. Only if Ryu looses control could he hope to do cap damage, and even then, Cap has dealt with raging monsters as well.
@onilordasmodeus: I would like to know why the movie that came with the game is non canon.
Aslo of course he cant do that in the game if he did no one would play as anyone else, all players must be balanced.
To answer your question, I have no clue...but it isn't.
All the intros for SF4 and SSF4 are canon, but none of the endings are, and niether are any of the side movies that came out around the time of the game. From the official SF plot guide...
"THERE ARE NO ANIMES, MANGAS, MOVIES, COMIC BOOKS, OR GRAPHIC NOVELS THAT OFFICIALLY ARE PART OF THE CANON. Not anymore anyway. One exception to this was a short SF1 manga released by Capcom itself. It's been null and void since the Zero series was released. With the most recent additions to the saga from SF4 and SSF4, only the animated openings and endings qualify for seishi status at this point. Excluded are the four promotion trailers featuring Ryu, Chun-Li, Sakura, and C. Viper respectively, as well as the new anime Newly Become Bonds aka The Ties That Bind. SSF4's XBOX360-exclusive original animation featuring Juri is also currently excluded from seishi status."
2) As a lover of MK, I'm all for using character gameplay to make a point.
What I specifically mean by this is by breaking down a character's moveset, their gameplay, a means of qualifying a characters fighting ability can be made as you have a clear assessment of how that character fights.
In gameplay Ryu is open for attack after (if) a DP or hurricaine kick is whiffed as those are his big flashy attacks that he uses consistently. This assessment has little to do with overall balance of the game as that is just a breakdown of how the character fights in said game. Taking that into concideration though, and taking into concideration who he is fighting against, a case can be made for where an opponent can capitalize on a fighter's style.
Another thing though is that you have to take into concideration the character mentality, their canonical accomplishments, and their canonical fighting ability/skill. Nobody can say what Ryu would do in a given situation (i.e. that he would even use those moves) without first looking at what he has done in the past.
While Ryu is canonically a "good" fighter, the the potential to be amazing, proven by his encounters with Bison, Sagat, as well as a few other characters, Ryu also is a long way from being a complete/ "great" fighter as he has fallen apart in battle (iirc he's done so in just about every canonical fight) as he's fought against the dark Hadou within himself. SF3 is the only game where the DH has little/nothing to do with Ryu, but nothing in that game is concrete either.
In a fight with Cap, it is highly likely that Cap would be the one to control the fight, and that he would be the one to punish Ryu rather than it be the other way around.
Like I said in my previous post, unless Ryu looses control and "Evil Ryu" comes out, Ryu has very little chance of doing anything to Cap. Even then though, i don't see Cap loosing as "Evil Ryu" has done literally nothing.
