If Ryu, the protagonist character from the popular fighting game "Street Fighter" were to fight Scorpion, the spear-wielding undead ninja specter from the "Mortal Kombat" franchise, Ryu is the character most likely to win. As an older and more experienced fighter, Ryu would have the upper hand.
In this hypothetical gaming crossover match between "Street Fighter" and "Mortal Kombat" characters, Ryu's steadfast fireballs pose a serious threat to Scorpion's spear-centered fighting technique. While the match would certainly be close, in the end, Ryu would win. Ryu, who has been fighting since 1987 in the original "Street Fighter" game by Capcom, has a longer and more developed record of winning combat matches. Included in the original "Mortal Kombat" game released in 1992, Scorpion's training is not a match for Ryu's when considering the latter's additional five years of experience.
