Kage, meaning “shadow” in Japanese, is the physical embodiment of the Satsui no Hado, an evil force rooted in humanity’s obsession with power. Those who have control over this force, like Akuma, carry immense strength, but at the cost of their humanity. Ryu is one such being who knows the Satsui no Hado exists within him and has been struggling to keep it at bay. Hypothetically, if Ryu let the Satsui no Hado consume him, the being known as Evil Ryu takes over and begins a path of destruction. However, after the events of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, Ryu has been able to overcome the Satsui no Hado’s influence and be at peace…until the force decides to have a mind of its own.
