Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

SmashWiki article: Ken (SSBU)

Ken appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, as an unlockable character and an Echo Fighter to Ryu. He shares many similarities to Ryu, though he focuses more on the use of his legs and moves faster because of it. His Shoryuken and Tatsumaki Senpukyaku can deal repeated damage unlike Ryu, and his Hadoken has a graphic of his hands displayed within. He shares his debut trailer with Incineroar.
