The series remained silent until 1998, where Hiryu was included as a playable character in ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfTheSuperheroes Marvel vs. Capcom]]''. Hiryu's speed, easily-chained combos, zone control, and full-screen LimitBreak made him a favorite of {{Scrub}}s and StopHavingFunGuys alike. In 1999, Capcom [[Music/{{Prince}} partied]] with ''Strider 2'', a PlayStation follow-up to the arcade game where Hiryu once again faces the Grandmaster as well as a new foe, the renegade Strider Hien. Since then, Hiryu and his enemies have appeared in ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom''; notably, the Grandmaster gets the honor of being the last BigBad to be confronted before the biggest bad herself. While not present in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' due to copyright issues, Hiryu did join the line-up of its UpdatedRerelease, ''Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3''. It was revealed that he will also join the cast of ''[[VideoGame/ProjectXZone Project X Zone 2: Brave New World]]''

* BootstrappedTheme: Combined with Level1MusicRepresents, the theme to the first level of the arcade version, "Raid" has become the de-facto theme of Strider Hiryu in every cameo appearance he makes. Its opening notes are especially iconic to the character.

* ParryingBullets: Hiryu will be doing this with laser blasts, thanks to his Cypher getting a new "Reflect" upgrade that lets him return shots back at enemies.

''Strider'' is a [[RuleOfCool stylish]] 1989 action/platforming game by Capcom about a {{ninja}} with an [[CoolSword incredibly badass sword]]. The game features our hero Hiryu as he takes on the "Grandmaster", [[GalacticConqueror an entity from another galaxy that has decided to conquer the Earth.]] The arcade game was ported to many systems, including the SegaGenesis, where it was one of the system's first {{Killer App}}s, and the first game to be released on an 8-megabit cartridge.

The game naturally inspired a number of [[FollowTheLeader imitators and similar games]], such as ''VideoGame/RunSaber'' and ''Shadow of the Ninja''. One of these, ''[[VideoGame/CannonDancer Osman]]'', was created by the same designer of the original and is considered its SpiritualSuccessor. In 1990, the European-based company U.S. Gold produced an officially-licensed sequel titled ''Strider II'', which was originally released for various home computer platforms in Europe (specifically the Amiga, Atari ST, Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC and ZX Spectrum). The game was remade in 1992 for the [[SegaGenesis Mega Drive]] with redesigned stages and play mechanics much closer to the original arcade game. This was that version that was released in North America under the title of ''Strider Returns: Journey From Darkness''. An 8-bit SegaMasterSystem version of ''Strider II'' was also released, with a corresponding American release for the GameGear under the ''Strider Returns'' title.

** In the NES game, there's "Yugdesiral", which should actually be [[NorseMythology Yggdrasil]].

* ThemeNaming: In ''Marvel vs. Capcom'', Hiryu's moveset is heavily influenced by legendary swords and items ([[Myth/JapaneseMythology Ame no Murakumo]], [[KingArthur Excalibur]], [[NorseMythology Gram]], [[Myth/HinduMythology Vajra]]) and mythology in general ([[{{Gotterdammerung}} Ragnarok]], {{Ouroboros}}, [[Literature/TheBible Legion]]).

* VirtualTrainingSimulation: Home computer ports only. The home computer versions appear to follow the arcade version story (aside from a stage swap), revealing only after destroying Mecha Pon in the fifth stage that it is a training simulation to prepare when the real invasion begins.

* BreakablePowerUp: A PowerUp gives you a robot to fight alongside you. You lose it from being damaged, with the special wrinkle that it is "linked" to your life total at the moment you acquire it. So it is possible to [[LoopholeAbuse deliberately get damaged to almost dead, pick up the droid, then find healing power ups to provide a buffer against losing it]].
