    A Ryu needs to be easy to pick up and Jin is one of the hardest execution characters

    I might honestly call Asuka the the Ryu of Tekken at this point

    I did consider that, but I wasn't sure about picking a Ryu that joined 6 games into the series (if you count TTT)

    Who would be the Ryu of the first bunch of games? Trying to think of anyone who is both "main protagonist" or at least central to the story and also easy for newcomers. I don't know if Kazuya is all that much easier than Jin.

    I think it might be Paul? He definitely fits the "normal guy who just martial arts well" dynamic, but there isn't really anyone else who fights like him

    King/Armor King definitely have the Ryu/Ken dynamic on lockdown

    All I know about Tekken is that there's an evil old guy and a panda and some guy who got into a teleporter with a jaguar

    it's a wrestling mask! except of course when it clearly isn't, but even then it still is just a mask

    I'm pretty sure the Ryu of Tekken is Akuma

    Paul seems right to me, very easy to pick up and play and just kind of a lovable goofus

    Law is the other one I would consider

    There are 5 Breaths of Fire Ryus, three Ninjas Gaiden, and only one Street Fighter. The dragons win by numbers!

    Also: they're dragons

    The clearest example of a Ryu in Tekken is Tekken 6 Lars.

    The game with most Ryus
    I guess most of these folks just kinda just became normal working civilians like every club members after their school life

    Ryu is a Link from the Legend of Zelda series situation. Technically all different people who fill the same archetype vaguely in the same world. All of them can turn into dragons that trivialize combat. It’s a series that tends to be on the easy side other than 2, which has some experience curve issues

    Yeah I said "main character" for the Ryu of the game, but usually that's just because the poster character for the game tends to lean toward being very basic in terms of execution, which is the more important factor in being the Ryu of the game.

    A Ryu is a character that embodies the basic mechanics of the game.

    Tekken didn't get a Ryu until Shaheen and Kazumi. Katarina is Ken.

    You’re not Ryu if you’re wondering.

    You’re Zack from Dead or Alive.

    I don't think there's a way to call anyone "the Ryu of real life" without it sounding extremely insulting?
