Ryu's jumping in his games is rather different. Pressing the opposite direction is a lot less effective than it is in SMBC. It's hard to say whether or not it wouldn't work in SMBC. It would certainly make things more difficult, but whether it makes him unplayable is another question. Yeah, this is what I was getting at. Too few instances where SOPHIA needs to reach a ceiling from underneath, too many instances where SOPHIA could usefully reach a platform from underneath. BTW, I love how this thread has become all about the possibility of Classic Ryu.
