|Some pics from
of SF2 as a guide in terms of history and relationships. SFZ3 is
sort of a backstory
ChunLi - CL is still the wife of Ryu. CL is Vega's flesh and blood daughter. Also Alex's half sister
Ryu - His sensei is Gouken, His best bud is Ken. Ryu is still fueding with Vega as they both blame each other for what happen to CL
- Story starts with Ken and family running for dear life. Gill came along and apprently toasted Eliza and iced Ken. Messed with Mel's qi so that he will need the help of someone with Hadouken to help him (lure Ryu out). Mel met up with Alex and hangs out with him and Elena. Alex saw Ibuki and chemistry flies
- Ryu now lives in seclusion on a mountain. Hiding in a caveren. Day in day out in mediation. All because he ain't leaving the tomb of CL(?!). Until he gets an omen of Ken being in trouble. He decides to go help. So touching CL's bracelets, he tells her that he's sorry because he needs to go out and get some things done. Please do wait for his return.
- So off Ryu went to the Shotoken Dojo. Dan didn't welcome him but Ryu does not care and headed in to pay his respect to the late Gouken. And takes from him a secret Shoto manuel.thus honouring a request of Gouken's
- Took a few issues and some
before Ryu arrives to help Mel and Ken from Gill.
- As Ryu spent a few years in
in CL's tomb. His pining for CL caused him to take to using her moves.
It carries the everything his has for CL. His love for her, his anger
himself of causing her death, his yearning for her and the meaning of
- And all that is making Gill
he sense a great increase in strength where Ryu is concern. Very much a
- In it was about thing in
regards to the
Satsui no Haodu, and even told Ryu how to unlock it.
- So Ryu here knowing that he
destiny. Splits the manuel giving Ken the Shoryuken half and keeping
Hadouken part for himself and left.
- One fine day it started out in
Vega and Ryu had never see eye to eye about lots of things, on account
that Ryu is his son-in-law. Vega make it a point to notify Ryu that his
army will be attacking the area that Ryu is hanging out at. And if Ryu
interferes, he'll fight him too.
- And then she appears. The woman
held a significant place in thieir hearts. She calls out to her father
and her husband to stop killing each other.
- Back up some mountain. Ryu does
could to expel the two opposing qi within CL. things aren't going his
and CL knows it. She wants him to know that to be able to become Ryu's
wife is the best thing that could ever happen to her. And wants him to
promise her that if she dies. Please stop fighting with her father to
- So in this low temperature tomb
to bring CL back using one of the moves in the Hadoken manuel to
blast the two qi out of her body
- So now Ryu went to this place
held Gouki captive. Vega offers to work with him to take down Gill and
Urien but Ryu rejected the offer.
- So Ken gave him three days to
and Ryu went back to find CL. And 'talk' with her. He thinks he let her
down now that he came 'home' empty-handed and ask her what he should
- Vega looks up Ryu to help him. the only reason he gave is that because Ryu meant something to CL and that gave him the right to help his son-in-law along. Allowing the young man to master the sixth stance of the Hadoken style. Vega gave Ryu the rsponsiblity of finding CL no matter what and left.
- A little Vega backstory Vega grew up with a large number of brothers (nothing mentioned of his sisters if any). Gone through hellish survival of the fittest training. Probably eventually killing each other to be the sole heir to the throne (in SF3 issue 77 mentioned this). Even then his dad ain't cutting him no slack. The Father -son Mishima syndrome. The strange need for both Father and son to beat the crap out of each other.
Eventually Vega does take over the throne and around then he met CL's mom and had CL with her. And accidently killed his wife during training (a souped up Psycho Shot). It somewhat affected his relationship with CL. To the point that she fell in love with Ryu one of Vega's greatest enemies(rebellious CL haha). Which probably why he still feel the need to beat the crap out of his son-in-law behind his daughter's back LOL. Yeah and look what happen when that happen in issue 50
And then looking at the way he treats CL. Kinda think that he's partial to daughters instead of sons since he wanted to kill Alex (Alex is just a son birthed by some woman he chosen for the night).
- On the eve of the battle, Ryu
up, spends time reminiscing thier childhood. When day arrives. The
and battle of Hadoken and Shoryuken style finally begins with some
fighters heading there to witness the epic battle. Gouki sets up a
to make sure no one interferes the duo.
- Somewhere down in the South Pole. the ressrected Gill and faithful servant Dudley heads there to look for someone. All they caught is a beastly little white monkey with a red headband!!
- What happened to Ryu? But that led Ryu to come rescue the monkey from Gill, making a big ruckus to tell them that they're not welcome.
- While Mel hang out with Gouki following him to Gouki's island, where he found that Gouki started training young and had an affinity to his art. If anything Mel found a Tien(Ten) of Diamonds on the wall. The Shun Goku Sastu had no effect on the diamonds. But one in particular had a hole about the width of two fingers (yeah yeah Tengai no Ten comes from here). And Gouki wants to relearn that.
- Okay apprently the moment
Shoryuken or Hadoken style user produce a loser. That loser will get
to the South Pole to learn the Tatsumaki style to counter the other
All these because the guy who created the moves believes that there
always be something to counter something
- Darkness took over and when Ryu
his eyes there she is standing there. To which Ryu thinks that he's
and gone to the dojo in the sky to join CL. And CL ask him why he
took his life? Why did he reject the training?
- As for Gill strikes a bargain
Ryu to help Gill up the ultimate qi level. And Gill will help him bring
