Ben, you’re the worst


#3

Ryu and all shotos are wizards.


#4

A Wizard needs food (sometimes badly). While Ryu does not. Therefore Ryu is not a wizard.


#5

Ryu’s powers are based in karate, not the arcane.


#6

chi is magic and therefore arcane.


#7

Have you ever seen Ryu drink a mana potion?


#8

Well isn’t he more of a sorcerer than a wizard? Using his ki and such


#9

in the ST universe wizards draw magic from their surroundings through punching cars or getting punched. hence the super and ultra meter mechanics. It’s right there.


#10

Does that mean all the characters are wizards? They all got supers.


#11

Only if they shoot fireballs or fireball-like projectiles.


#12

I see you’re finally coming to the correct realization about Street Fighter.


#13

But Balrog still uses ex meter to make his punches strong


#14

That’s more like a monk thing.


#15

By extension, are Dragon Ball Z magic???


#16

but hadouken isn’t?


#17

He’s definitely a monk. D&D even has hadokens but they’re shit because it’s 3.5 and there’s nothing cool allowed in that one.


#18

Ryu just doing this but with your face:


#19

I guess he could be a multiclass Wizard/Monk.
