It is interesting to note that Evil Ryu does not exist in canon, him being more of a "What If..." character.
Evil Ryu often appears as a palette swap of Ryu wearing a black gi, though the Alpha series also gives him a black head band. His skin also becomes a slightly darker shade along with his hair. From CvS onward, he has been depicted with red pupils, although some games leave his eyes entirely red.
In Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, his design was given an update, taking on a much more feral appearance with traits taken from Akuma. His eyes now glow and his hair spikes up with red tint. Most notable of all is a gaping hole bored into his chest, with a similar scar on his back that bears a glowing ten kanji. The scar resembles the effects of being hit up close with the Medio Gohado that is used by Oni. He appears far more menacing and powerful than his Alpha version.
Evil Ryu also makes an appearance in the DLC of Asura's Wrath. In this game; Asura has the opportunity to fight both Ryu and Evil. Ryu.
