This is a character specific matchup thread as per my suggestion here:
This will be the official thread for discussing this matchup. If at a later point, people come to a consensus regarding specific points of this matchup that should be in this OP, I will update it for quick referencing.
Here’s what we have so far coming from Kunai’s stickied thread (which is very old):
-lpTK and f.MP are both timed attacks to advance forward over/under fireballs (even super or ultra)
-If caught in a close range battle usually a simple back dash or a defensive c.mp to get your space again.
-You can try to trick him into playing with crouching shorts/strongs and f.MP or Burning Kick him. Can become risky because of SRK’s so try to make sure you have felt it out properly.
-Can play with Seismo a bit from full screen as with all FB characters, but this can also let you control the pace of the fight (especially if you get that knockdown).
More from Ryuga’s matchup thread
-Overhead and Light Thunder Knuckle can be used to go over and under fireballs.
-Can be Seismoed out of fireballs.
-Forward+roundhouse, overhead and Burning Kick hops over cr.mk and sweep and beats them out.
-However, Ryu can use cr.mk to lower his hitbox and make your Burning Kicks whiff.
-If Ryu player knows option select DP([media=youtube]nL2zpySSymE&feature=related[/media]) it’s best to just block.
-Is possible to use Burning Kick to beat out wake-up reversal Shoryukens.(see below)
Get him to throw special moves or whiff normals. That’s the jist of the matchup. Another very baity matchup. Make him burn meter or whiff his shoryu when he has 2 meters and an Ultra. Otherwise you’re looking to get FADC Ultra’d soon. The match is in Ryu’s favor so don’t get too discouraged about losing. He already beats the crap out of your normals and on top of the move he uses when he doesn’t know what to do (LP shoryu) trades into Ultra and if he really doesn’t know what to do he can make his shoryu safe with FADC Ultra. Basically Ryu doesn’t have to respect your mix ups all the time like other characters.-DevilJin01
i tend to counter whore-ible (see what i did there?) Ryus by walking back and forth right at the edge of their c. mk range.-Flook
