The full midnight moon is but a candle compared to the illumination of my power. The thick fog of dust dissipates, showing chunks of destroyed trees that litter the ground around me and a massive crater beneath my feet. I look down and see the battered and broken body of my greatest rival, Gouken my brother, I have won. "Akuma you monster, what have you done?", Gouken's cub shouts in anger as he runs toward his death at my hands. "Come little pup and learn the meaning of power!"
For years, I've stood in the shadows and watched as Gouken trained the young one to forsake the hidden power inside him and for years I've waited for the perfect time to strike, tonight Ryu will embrace the Satsui no Hadou or die. I reach down and grab Gouken by his lifeless neck, Ryu stops his advance and anger fills his face as I toss the body behind me and it lands on a bare leafless branch of one of the few remaining trees. "Boy, a true warrior enters battle with all of his power ready, if you wish to defeat me you must awaken what hides within you." Ryu's eyes burn red with Ki as energy begins to swirl around him...yes the Dark Hadou sleeps no more.
"Uuggrhhhh", Ryu screams in agony as the power takes control of him, I thought he would be strong enough to handle it but I was wrong, now he is nothing more than a mindless animal that needs to be put down. Ryu dashes toward me in an attempt to strike my face, he is fast but I am faster, I block his attack and slam him to the ground. "Your lack of control is dissappoin...", he interrupts me with a jab to my ribs, his speed is increasing."HaAAa..doOOo..", Ryu tries to speak as he places his hands together and blue energy builds up in his palms, he's forming a hadoken.
A hadoken that size is impressive and could rival my own if I allow him to continue gathering energy so I dash toward him but I'm already too late. Ryu pushes his hands forward and after letting out a monstrous yell, unleashes the explosive blast just as I step in front of him. I try to ignore the pain of the blast as it burns away the top of my Gi and thrust my right fist forward, cut through the hadoken blast and punch Ryu in the chest, puncturing his flesh with my hand. With a hole the size of my fist in his chest, Ryu falls to the ground like dead weight, I refuse to be beaten. As I turn to leave the battlefield, my Ki suddenly begins to overwhelm me and I'm forced to my knees, energy begins to pour out of my eyes and hands...I've lost control.
In a fit of rage, I rip the beads of prayer away from my neck and as they fall, my overflowing energy ensnares them and one by one the beads float and encircle me, finally the demon has ascended. My rage is unending, my power is infinite and I hunger for the next kill, I stand up and notice that my feet dent the earth with every firm step I take. Where...where is the one who can stand against me...who can defeat this power? I am no longer bound by the limits of man for the shell of Akuma is gone, now there is only Oni!
