Gameplay Summary

Ryo is, in essence, a shoto, but because he lacks any zoning tools, he is more oriented towards rushdown. Ryo has long been considered a "moving fortress" due to his defensive tools, including: a reversal DP; a parry for highs and mids, and a parry for lows that he can use to extend pressure; and his 236P that serves as a large poke instead of being a fireball. Ryo also has a suite of excellent normals that allow him to maintain a close range presence; his CD and cr.D are whiff-cancelable, his j.CD has excellent range, and many of his light normals are either plus or slightly negative on block. That isn't to say Ryo doesn't have his flaws, though. For a shoto or a rushdown character, Ryo is surprisingly slow, which means any holes in a Ryo player's gameplan can easily be exploited. If you want a character with notable defensive tools without sacrificing damage or pressure, then Ryo might be the pick for you. Ryo is best played in the mid or anchor position, as having meter makes Ryo significantly more threatening.

Ryo Sakazaki is a rushdown-oriented shoto who trades zoning tools for an intimidatingly augmented offensive and defensive game.
Pros Cons
  • Great Pressure: Ryo excels at being up close. His suite of great normals and his 236A psuedo-fireball allow him a huge amount of pressure opportunity once he's made his way in. His mixup game is also very scary due to 6A, which is a 22 frame overhead that can be Quick Max'd for big damage. 4A is a powerful tool when used meaty due to being plus on block, so a clever Ryo can consistently loop his options.
  • Frame Data: Being a rushdown character, Ryo's kit is designed to let him get in and stay in. Ryo has significantly more advantage on his normals than a great majority of the cast. All of his light normals range from being +3 to -1 on block, while his st.C and cr.D have noticeably more frame advantage than most other characters have for their respective moves of the type.
  • Notable Defense: Ryo's defensive tools are what make him stand out from the rest of the cast, most notably his parries, which allow him to react faster than his opponent and not accumulate chip damage if timed correctly. A well timed (EX) Zanretsuken can lead into massively damaging combos if used on defense. Some of Ryo's pokes, such as st.A, st.C, st.CD, or cr.D, can be cancelled into command normals (st.A, st.CD, cr.D) and special moves.
  • Great Offense: Ryo works wonders when he has a stockpile of meter to play with. 214B/D is a fantastic juggle tool which leads right into 646A/C for big damage. This combo also leads into good Okizeme when performed, which Ryo can capitalize on to run his game all over again. As well, Ryo can spend 0.5 bars to perform 50% combos in the corner very easily, allowing him to two-touch his enemies without spending much resources at all.
  • Parries: Ryo has a unique way of warding off projectiles and other reactable zoning tools with his parries. Parries can destroy certain projectiles when hit and lead into combos or supers when catching strikes, and their simple inputs give Ryo the ability to easily perform them on reaction. Ryo's long-reaching sweep can even be cancelled into parry, which makes it quite safe.
  • Simple Playstyle: Ryo's gameplan is very straightforward; he has few tricks to catch opponents or knowledge-check with. While his gameplan is rewarding in practice, he relies heavily on strong fundamentals to win.
  • Sluggish: Ryo is very slow for a shoto which makes him weak to anyone more mobile than him. His lack of a meterless fireball also hurts his zoning capability and makes him overly-reliant on his DP and parries for defending his approach. Unlike many other slow characters as well, his buttons are quite average in terms of size, and he does not have a great 'neutral skip'. Because of this, he finds himself having to work his way in against the majority of the cast, and it makes it much harder for him to convert off lights as getting close enough to do so is far less possible.
  • Reliance On Meter: Ryo needs meter to make his parries threatening, as their ability to cancel into supers or his combo-starting 214BD is what helps them maintain their threat.


Quick Combo Reference

In a nutshell

  • Confirm into 214BD > 623C > Super.
  • You can squeeze an extra EX in with 214BD > Close D > 646AC > 623C > Super.
  • In the corner you can do 214D instead of the EX to save meter, but only against standing opponents (and 2C forces stand).
  • Comboing into 236A doesn't need to be confirmed, and allows for follow-ups in the corner.

  • Good for far range punishes into Quick MAX combos.

Ryo sticks his foot out. Despite being super cancellable, this move doesn't have enough hitstun in order for a super to connect. Therefore, it should only be cancelled into Quick MAX combos. The hitbox is also noticeably smaller than the animation implies, so this isn't the best poke Ryo has.

  • Has a longer activation range than Close C and hits low.
  • Moves Ryo forward, which is great for strings & combos, but also means you cannot stuff out wakeup throws with it.

Ryo performs a kick at knee level. In part due to it moving Ryo forward, this move has significantly farther activation range than his cl.C, as well as doing more damage. The heavy starter at close range.

70 Mid command 4 5 24 -8 -10 - 70 120
  • Ryo's fastest heavy normal. Only the first two active frames hit grounded opponents.
  • Can not be late canceled the way Close C/D are.
  • Forces stand, thus ensuring that 214D combos land.
  • Very unsafe on block or whiff.

Ryo performs an uppercut. While it is still his fastest heavy normal, it has been faster. As a result of the startup increase, this move can no longer be linked into from 2B. That isn't to say this move doesn't have its utility, though. This is still a reliable anti-air and one of the fastest 2Cs in the game.

While this move is fast in startup, it also has its downsides. Ryo's 2C has 24 frames of recovery and is -10 on block, so improper usage can result in Ryo's death. While it can be canceled on block to make it safer, unless you're up close, you don't want to use this move.

80 Low command 9 5 19 SKD (25: Tech / 52: Non-tech) -5 - 70 120
  • Ryo's longest normal.
  • Can be whiff-canceled, especially with 3D to cut down its slow recovery speed.
  • When out of range for a 2B > 2A confirm this is your go-to.

Ryo sweeps his leg across the ground. For a shoto, this is a considerably slow sweep, but Ryo can make up for that by canceling it into any of his command moves or specials, even on whiff. One of the most notable of his (whiff) cancel options is his low parry (3D) which pushes him forward while cutting down the recovery at the same time. Canceling this sweep can have a significant impact on Ryo's pressure game.

Ryo performs a knifehand strike that hits overhead. If cancelled into, it loses its overhead property and functions as a mid, but it is able to cancel into specials or supers. It also works as a frametrap, if cancelled into from light normals, or late cancelled into from heavy normals.

  • Increases Power Gauge by 80 points on successful parry.
  • Can be instantly followed up with any kind of special (including supers) or another parry.

Ryo's parry for high and mid attacks. On a successful parry, a distortion effect will appear around Ryo, and he can immediately follow up with a special, a super special move, or another parry. It has a 4-frame startup, so it is relatively fast, but it is not instant. Furthermore, whiffing the parry will leave Ryo wide open and vulnerable to being severely punished, so it is best not to be predictable with this move. However, at 14 frames, the move is very active, so those with good input timing may find it very easy to shrug off attacks with this parry.

Ryo's parry for low attacks. Compared to his parry for high and mid attacks, it has 1-frame longer startup, 1-frame longer recovery, and nearly half the amount of active frames. Uniquely, however, this parry moves Ryo forward, giving Ryo the ability to cancel any command-cancelable normals into it in order to extend his pressure.

80 Mid super 29 5 16 +6 +2 - 40 120
  • Can be easily beaten out by mashing opponents.

A slow, wind up punch that, while very similar in appearance to Takuma's 214P, serves a somewhat different purpose. At 29 frames, it has a very slow startup, which makes it a highly unreliable move to use in neutral. It is able to cancel into supers, albeit unreliably. And while it can link into 214B or 623C on hit, its main purpose is to present a possible threat to the opponent during pressure mindgames, given its plus frames on block.

    • Can be comboed after, depending on how close Ryo was to his opponent when this connects. 623C, cl.C, or 2C can all work from a grounded hit. If this hits anti-air, 214B can work as well.

  • Short projectile.
  • A version is used for safe blockstrings and frametraps. While it doesn't hit until frame 17, the projectile can't be prevented from coming out from frame 12 and onwards, even if Ryo gets hit - which is great for corner pressure, since you can combo even after trades.
  • C version moves Ryo forward and allows for combos in the corner.
    • Unsafe point blank, but can be made safer with proper spacing.
  • EX is a full screen projectile that hits twice and can power through non-EX fireballs. Great for winning fireball wars.
    • Plus on block even at point blank, allowing for some extended pressure, especially in the corner.
  • All versions let you corner juggle after.

Ryo unleashes a short-ranged ki blast from his palm. What this move lacks in horizontal range and speed, it makes up for with a larger vertical hitbox, faster recovery, and higher damage values than other characters with fireballs. Because it's not a fullscreen projectile, it is not worth using the move when the opponent is not in close range.

The EX version is similar to your standard fireball, especially with its slower recovery than meterless, but it is still a very fast fireball with high damage.

  • B version is a situational punisher, and corner combo ender (just make sure to get out of throw range after).
  • D version whiffs on crouching opponents unless it's done very close up. Allows for follow-ups in the corner.
  • EX version is a quick long range launcher that can combo from his lights.

Ryo leaps into the air and performs two flying kicks. The EX version of this move is one of the most important parts of his toolset, as it launches the opponent high enough to allow Ryo to follow up with a multitude of extremely damaging specials and/or supers.

  • Rapid punches. Sucks in the opponent for a full combo.
  • First hit is high, so it doesn't combo on crouching opponents.
  • A version combos from light attacks and is a juggle ender. Great hard knockdown. Super Cancelable.
  • C version combos from heavy attacks. Launches.
  • EX version is an anywhere juggle, great at extending combos. Catches invincibility frames as well, so a properly spaced meaty beats both wakeup DP and throw attempts.
  • Only one Zanretsuken is allowed per combo.

Ryo enters a stance and performs several high speed punches with his fist. If any of the hits snag the opponent, they will be vacuumed in and hit by the rest of the move's attack. Even with meter, this move has poor range and long startup, meaning it is very hard to use as a combo starter or after 6A. Secondly, Zanretsuken pushes Ryo back on block, so if he is unable to land it, not only will Ryo be left wide open, but he will be sent out of close range, where he works best. For these reasons, Zanretsuken works best as a midcombo extender, such as 646A after 214BD or 646AC after 214BD, cl.C/cl.D.

646AC is the cornerstone of Ryo's metered combos. Faster, more damaging, and more active than 646C and even having anywhere juggle properties, it is part of what makes getting hit by Ryo's metered combos so threatening.

Ryo shoots a massive fireball from his hands. Compared to Robert's fireball super, it's a bit slower by a frame (level 2) or two (level 1), but it has significantly less recovery.

  • Full invincibility.
  • The guard crush effect is to your detriment, since all it does is reset the opponent's guard gauge.
  • Does no extra damage whatsoever on a counter hit due to a cinematic 0 damage hit at the start.

A massive punch with more range than the animation implies. Technically hits twice due to a 0-damage hit at the start of the cinematic, which also prevents Ryo from scoring extra damage from a counter hit.
