Shoto

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

Shoto or Shotoclone refers simultaneously to:

The term originates from what Street Fighter players call characters derived from Ryu, a phrase derived from "Shotokan", which is a colloquialism for anyone who fights using his style in the Street Fighter series of games. Since Ken is an Echo Fighter of Ryu in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, players may use this term to refer to both of them simultaneously when applicable.

In the context of SSBU, Terry shares some characteristics with the shotos—such as special cancelling, and an energy-based projectile—and is occasionally grouped with the two because of this. However, Terry cannot be classified as a shoto because he uses a different fighting style, and as such, the distinction does not apply to him.
