  • You might be able to tell how he changed over the years if these were actually laid out chronologically. They’re not. For example, Marvel vs Capcom 3 is in the middle but that game’s newer than SF4. Same for Street Fighter X Tekken. Capcom vs SNK is toward the bottom but should be closer to the middle, I remember playing it on my Dreamcast.

  • I never realised how huge his eyebrows are, until I noticed they partially covered up his headband.. wow!
    Additionally, Alpha Ryu > all other Ryus.
