|Effect||Does two punches and finishes with a powerful Shoryuken|
Shin Shoryuken is Ryu's Final Smash when near the opponent. Ryu does one punch, then does another while saying "Shin" and then does a powerful Shoryuken while yelling it's name. When he is away from the opponent, he uses the Shinku Hadoken.
Final Smash Trophy Description
- Use this attack when Ryu is far away from an enemy to unleash a Shinku Hadoken that penetrates through the stage. But if you use it when Ryu is close to an enemy, he’ll unleash a Shin Shoryuken uppercut attack. When it hits,Ryu will follow up with his other fist and launch the opponent up, up, and away!
Shin Shoryuken was originally introduced as one of Ryu's Super Moves in Street Fighter III: New Generation, which begins with a hook punch to the gut instead. When this Final Smash connects, a bolt of lightning can briefly be seen shooting horizontally across the screen seemingly stunning the opponent. While not an actual part of Shin Shoryuken, this bolt can be seen as a direct homage to the Super Art activation spark effect seen in Street Fighter III: Third Strike.
Gouken possesses this move as his first Ultra Combo in Street Fighter IV. In the same game, Ryu has a variant on this super as an Ultra called "Metsu Shoryuken." Ken also performs this move in Namco X Capcom.
