Although the U.S. version of Street Fighter calls him 'Evil Ryu', Capcom Japan has let us know that their preference is the term 'Dark Ryu'.... meaning that he's been corrupted but isn't instantly evil.
Ugh! I hate it when they call him with the E word! Plus, sometimes I wish he could control that power without being so ballistic and bloodthirsty. Just a bit more stubborn and with a bit rougher personality, that's all. Example: - E-word Ryu: I'LL RIP YOUR F***ING HEAD OFF! DIE DIE DIE!!!!!!!! - Dark Ryu (preferable): Even that old man can fight better than you! You're moves are pathetic, never challenge me again!
