Description[edit | edit source]

Ryu activating Kakko Fubatsu

Executed by pressing Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick simultaneously, Ryu energizes his fists. This gives him access a special counter called Isshin. Upon countering an attack, a shockwave of energy releases around Ryu. If this shockwave hits the opponent, he performs a straight punch. The counterattack causes the opponent to crumple, allowing Ryu to follow-up with an attack.

Isshin can also be used in the middle of a combo after various special moves. When activated, Ryu instead does a rushing straight that travels forward, knocking the opponent away. It can be used from regular and EX Hadoken, regular grounded hit Shoryuken, and regular Joudan Sokutogeri. Isshin can be used twice as a strike and once as a counter.

Using Isshin as a counter, Ryu can counter everything except throws, giving him a highly functional defensive option. The opponent will be vulnerable to additional attacks after the Isshin strike, making for a great opportunity to deal major damage.
