I searched for Ryu's lastname and found that it is "Hoshi", but somehow I get the feeling this is only used in the "crappy" movie Street Fighter. Here are the sources I have found so far: Wikia, Wikipedia. The name is always listed under Action Movie or Live Action.

Is Hoshi his "real" name as used by Capcom in the official Street Fighter Series? Perhaps Ryu has no lastname and Hoshi is only used for the movie.

Hoshi is the name used for Live Action movie adaptations. No "actual" surname has been released. His full name is just Ryu.

Additionally and non-canon: In the fan short film "Street Fighter: Legacy", he's named "Takashi". This is both a reference to his designer 武神 隆 (Nishiyama Takashi) and a small pun for people knowing Japanese: The name would be written "隆 隆" (Takashi Ryuu), using the exact same Kanji twice but different spellings thereof. –  Martin Sojka Dec 24 '12 at 8:05
