This is a list of Evil Ryu's references in general pop culture since his (video game) introduction in Street Fighter Alpha 2.

Street Fighter Edit

Capcom games Edit

  • Asura (the main protagonist of Capcom's 3D beat'em up game Asura's Wrath) bears a striking resemblance to Evil Ryu, due to them both having eyes being the same color as their irises, tanned skin, spiky hair and their consistent aggressive face. But unlike Evil Ryu, Asura is very compassionate towards his family and humanity and is a demi-god, while Evil Ryu is a cold-blooded demon.

Other video games Edit

  • Tekken's Devil Jin is similar and often compared to Evil Ryu; both are evil, agressive and violent manifestations of the series' protagonist possessing supernatural powers and an evil energy. They both also have a "stronger" moveset of their human counterparts.

Comics and Manga Edit

Books Edit

Television and Animations Edit

Music Edit

Internet Edit

  • Evil Ryu also appears in Super Powered Beat Down in the battle with the Green Ranger. Towards the end of the series, how the Green Ranger impaled Evil Ryu on the chest is a nod to his appearance in Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition.
  • Evil Ryu also appeared in the 37th episode of Death Battle where he fought Scorpion from Mortal Kombat in the Netherworld and also in the climax of an episode of One Minute Melee where he fought against Devil Jin from Tekken.
