I could see him being called Ryu Hayabusa; it would differentiate him from Street Fighter's Ryu, and even with his full name, it still wouldn't be the longest name in Smash. (Rosalina and Luma is one syllable longer) I could also see him being called Hayabusa, like in Dead or Alive, but I'm not sure if it would be weird to leave out his first name.I have a bit of an off topic question, if people don’t mind me shifting conversation away from Twitter and interviews.
What would you want Ryu Hayabusa’s name on the roster to be? Obviously, a fair amount of people take issue with the idea of having two characters named Ryu. Admittedly, I would prefer that they didn’t just call him “Ryu” for that reason. It would just look...tacky. They could call him by his full name, Ryu Hayabusa, but that might be a bit much. Solid Snake is just Snake, Cloud Strife is just Cloud, Sonic the Hedgehog is just Sonic. Why would Ryu get his full name?
I think that I’d prefer for his name to just be “Hayabusa.” DoA just calls him Hayabusa, so there is precedent for it. It’s kind of weird for a character to simply be called by their last name, but in this case I do think it makes sense.
I don’t know, this is just something I was thinking about. I’m curious what you all think.
