~ Strider Hiryu

Strider Hiryu is the main protagonist from Strider. He appears in the 28th episode of Death Battle, Ryu Hayabusa VS Strider Hiryu, where he went against Ninja Gaiden protagonist Ryu Hayabusa.


Hiryu was orphaned at a very young age. He was put through the intense Strider program, a training school for high-tech ninja mercenaries.  He far exceeded his teachers´ expectations, and soon became the youngest student in the organization´s history to reach the highest rank of Special A-Class Strider. After reaching this remarkable rank, Hiryu was sent on a mission to kill a rogue Strider, who just so happened to be his own sister. He retired after his sister's death but was called back into action to destroy threats to humanity.
