At the beginning of the week, we asked the Shoryuken.com community on Twitter to tell us about their rivals — the friends (and friendly rivals) who got better, and forced you to get better in turn. Who’s the Ken to your Ryu? Here’s what you said:

Naturally, there were a few lone wolves out there. Anyone looking for a friend?Β 

There were also a few people who didn’t quite understand the question (or are deep into Sonic and F-Zero fandoms):

Ben Redfield, if you’re getting bodied consistently, you don’t get to be the Ryu in this analogy. Maybe you’re their Sean?

And Nick Rowe found that his greatest rival was his own barrel of olive oil.

Ryan Flores and his buddy Colin specialize in Balrog/Dudley matches; shouldn’t you be playing Fight Night?

And we got a few other rival shoutouts as well:

So: Who’s your rival? Tell us in the comments!
