* Son Goku from ''Manga/DragonBall'' is this to a lesser extent. Though, he and his Kamehameha came before the first ''SF'' game, the thirteenth ''DBZ'' movie introduced his Ryuuken/Dragon Fist. In most of the current video games, Goku has a Kamehameha as one of his basic special moves, and the Ryuuken as one of his ultimate moves. In some games, he also has a rushing or another physical attack that compensates more or less for his lack of a HurricaneKick.

In ''VideoGame/DragonBallFighterZ'', his Kamehameha and Rapid Kick rush even use the same button inputs as Ryu's Hadoken and Tatsumaki.

Also subjective to SpellMyNameWithAnS, since the romaji of "shoto" can also be typed/written as "shōtō" or "shoutou" (hence, "shōtōclone" or "shoutouclone") due to being modeled after the karate term that's also subjected to this[[note]]Shotokan/Shōtōkan/Shoutoukan[[/note]], but this largely depends on the writer.

* In VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever games, Ryu, Ken, Dan, Akuma, Sakura, Morrigan, and Batsu all put in appearances, as do ComicBook/Cyclops, ComicBook/SpiderMan, ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, Ippatsuman, and the aforementioned Terry and Ryo.

** Of the three Marvel heroes, Cyclops plays this trope the straightest with his own Hadouken (Optic Blast), Shoryuken (Gene Splice) and Hurricane Kick (Cyclops Kick), though he wouldn't gain this distinction until ''VideoGame/XMenVsStreetFighter''. Cap and Spidey would be distinct from Cyclops as both of them don't have actual Hurricane Kicks; Cap has the rushing Charging Star while Spidey's is the swinging Web Swing. As well, Spidey's Spider Sting slaps an opponent back down to the ground while most Shoryukens keep them airborne.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/BodyBlows'': Brothers Danny and Nik have some moves similar Ryu and Ken Masters, but they are more so modeled on the Bogard brothers and, to a lesser extent, Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia.

* ''Seifuku Densetsu Pretty Fighter'', a [[NoExportForYou Japanese-only]] {{Bishoujo Series}} fighting game released on the Super Famicom and [[UpdatedRerelease later ported to the Sega Saturn]], featured a {{sailor fuku}}-clad young woman who was able to execute both a Hadoken and Shoryuken-esque special move, and doubled as {{The Mario}}.

** Of course, for a more traditional one, there's Lucario, with [[KamehameHadoken Aura Sphere]] as the fireball, Extremespeed as the anti-air and [[BadToTheBone Bone Rush]] as a forward-moving attack.

No relation to SendInTheClones. Do not confuse with {{Shotacon}}, and God help you if you do. Subtrope of FountainOfExpies and MovesetClone.

*The moves are all there in the VideoGame/KunioKun series, but there wasn't any one character that had all three of them. The closest is Andy/Ryuji, who possesses a Tatsumaki and a Shoryuken. His brother Randy/Ryuichi also possesses a Tatsumaki, but his signature attack is a jumping knee strike. Saotome's Aura Punch is the series' main Hadoken-like skill. Also, none of these moves use the standard commands, instead using simplified commands like holding down punch for Aura Punch.
** VideoGame/RiverCityRansomUnderground, however, has Glen, who is a full-on Ryu-type.

** In ''VideoGame/XMenChildrenOfTheAtom'', Cyclops fits this trope with his Optic Blast as his KamehameHadoken and the Gene Splice as his {{Shoryuken}}. He doesn't have a HurricaneKick, but his LimitBreak mimics Ryu's later Shinnku Hadouken.

He doesn't have Cyclone Kick is a reasonable HurricaneKick, though with a bit more limit on the range, but his LimitBreak mimics Ryu's later Shinnku Hadouken.

** X, in ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' and ''X2'', alternately can get the Hadoken and Shoryuken as secret moves, with the same joystick input as Ryu. He can't have them both at the same time, though, since they appear in different games.
** The Xtreme GaidenGame series have a secret capsule allowing X to use both.
** ''X4'' features Magma Dragoon, who is an {{Expy}} of Akuma and uses many of the latter's moves, actually shouting the names for the attacks. Defeating him gives Zero a Shoryuken-style move. X only shoots fireballs upwards, but if charged he does a proper Shoryuken.
** ''X8'' also grants X the Shoryuken as an unlockable move.
** The two arcade {{gaiden game}}s for the original series give Mega Man a very shoryuken-esque attack, and Bass' victory pose in the second game has him "powering up" like Akuma. (Though not the same pose, the similarity is apparent.)

** Whereas Ryu's SFII look was originally remodeled after Kenshiro from ''[[FistoftheNorthStar Fist of the North Star]]'', Makoto Mizoguchi was modeled after Momotaro Tsurugi from ''Sakigake!! Otokojuku''.

* Ickybod Clay in ''ClayFighter 63 1/3'' has a pumpkin throw as his Hadoken and Squirm Like a Worm as his Shoryuken. He is not a main character though, nor was there a Shotoclone in the previous ''Clay Fighter'' games.
