** [[Spoiler: Two of the Striders under his charge, Arana and Kubira, are also not above using ambushes or setting up traps to kill him. Kubira actually justifies it as, having been in training school with Hiryu, he's well aware of his monstrous strength and skills and knows very well that, in a direct confrontation, he'd have no chance of victory.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MandatoryUnretirement: In the manga, Hiryu is forced out of his self-imposed retirement to [[ContractOnTheHitman murder his friend Cain]], who was captured while on duty and became a liability to the group. He reluctantly accepts the job after his superior [[Jerkass Matic]] threatens an entire village of innocents.

* CombatPragmatist: [[spoiler: Matic from the manga. The man is unrepentantly evil and has no qualms over using underhanded tactics and manipulation to get what he wants, in spite of the fact that, as the Striders' second-in-command, he'd be a certified One-Man Army. This is best demonstrated in the final chapter, when he corners an exhausted Hiryu with two armed mooks, and gloats he's in no shape to avoid the bullets this time. When forced into a one-on-one confrontation with him, however, he finds himself intimidated by Hiryu's determination to win, and so after noticing a large crowd of lesser Striders has gathered (which he believes are all loyal to him), wastes no time in ordering them all to kill Hiryu on the spot.]]

Added DiffLines:

* VillainousBreakdown: Two examples from the original manga:
** The Enterprise scientist in Chapter 3 starts out very confident in the security he has got for his secret lab, as he tells Faceas Clay through a phone call. This confidence vanishes just as Hiryu and Cain make quick work of his men, making him jump on the phone to ask for reinforcements moments before both striders confront him. But the real breaking point comes right after Hiryu destroys the Zain Terminal, which he treated as his child: he goes LaughingMad, mocking Hiryu and Cain that their efforts are futile since the terminal they destroyed was but one of millons and finally burns to death while fanatically praising Faceas Clay.
** [[spoiler:Vice-Director Matic in the final chapter. Ever the SmugSnake, Matic corners an exhausted Hiryu after he murdered Clay (as he wanted), explains to him all his plans to take over both the Striders and Enteprise, and is about to execute Hiryu when Cain comes to the rescue. From there, it's all downhill for him: he fights an injured and weakened Hiryu, but backs away when Hiryu [[{{Determinator}} adamantly refuses to go down]], then finds the Striders he thought were his lackeys don't follow his orders, and then Director Kuramoto (who he ordered his execution) was not only alive, but on to his treason. Cornered, he breaks down and threatens all present with a bomb, only to be ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice seconds after by the main Zain computer he desired for so long.]]

** The Kuniang sisters are specially prone to this, thanks to their Chinese names being filtered through Japanese spelling and then localized, resulting in Ton Pooh / Tong Poo, Bei / Pei Pooh and Nam / Nang Pooh.
** Hiryu himself, since his name in furigana and romaji has the extra "u" vowel ("Hiryuu"). Most of the time, the said extended vowel often ignored.

* AmbiguouslyHuman: Hiryu's eyes are now blood red and have lines in them. Artwork depicts them glowing, so he may be a cyborg.

The series remained silent until 1998, where Hiryu was included as a playable character in ''[[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfTheSuperheroes Marvel vs. Capcom]]'' and its sequel ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom2''. 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'', released in arcades in 1999 and then received a UsefulNotes/PlayStation port a year later, 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''. He also joined the cast of ''[[VideoGame/ProjectXZone Project X Zone 2: Brave New World]]''.

The series received a new sequel in the form of a open-world {{Metroidvania}}-style game in 2014 by Double Helix Games, and was overseen by the original developers.
