The wealthy Kanzuki family's mottos are "All you need is victory" (also interpreted as "Be the winner in everything") and, alternately, "The worst we'll ever be is the best". (A bonus short in the Street Fighter III: Ryu Final manga takes this further with "Victorious, therefore Supreme! Supreme, she is Karin Kanzuki!"). Her family's private estate covers 200 miles of land, and not only has its own geographical features, but its own climate. The Kanzukis are even wealthier than the Masters, so rich that they have their own satellite called "Red Spider-Lily". She was given a son's upbringing because her father always wanted a male heir to his conglomerate.
Karin Kanzuki (神月かりん Kanzuki Karin?) is the daughter of Daigenjuro and Nadeshiko and heir of the Kanzuki family.
Daigenjuro Kanzuki (神月大厳十郎?) is Karin's father, a rather strict man as he constantly pushes his daughter into becoming a better heir to the Kanzuki family fortune, as he wanted a son. One day, after Karin easily completed harsh trials, Daigenjuro discovers that she bought most of the Kanzuki Zaibatsu's shares, becoming the new leader of the zaibatsu and humiliating her father.
After losing the leadership, he no longer lives in the Kanzuki Estate, but he has not completely given up to be the family head. He travels around the world chasing after Karin to challenge her for his former position, but is only having a continuous losing streak.
Nadeshiko Kanzuki (whose name means either "fringed pink" or "lovable girl") is Karin's mother. She has never made any known official appearances, so it is unknown what she looks like, but she is described as being more lenient and caring towards her daughter than her husband is. Nadeshiko is said to have charmed 50,046 gentlemen, including her husband, to see if Nadeshiko would qualify to be Daigenjuro's wife.
- Although Karin is usually depicted as an only child of the Kanzuki family in most Street Fighter media (this is even stated as much in Sakura Ganbaru!), in the Ryu Final manga, she has three unnamed sisters.
- In the Sakura Ganbaru! manga, Daigenjuro bears a resemblance to Heihachi Mishima from the Tekken series.
