Shin (シン Shin?) is a video game character from the Street Fighter series, first appearing in Street Fighter Online: Mouse Generation as the game's sole original character. He is a confident South Korean man who gives up music and painting to become a Taekwondo martial artist.
Shin has full blond hair and sports an orange shirt with thin, black, vertical stripes, a blue down vest, green pants and black and orange shoes with white trim.
Shin is a good-natured, easy going young man who still maintains his wide eyed innocence. He also has a side to him which shows his more selfish and shallow side. This tends to bring out narcissistic tendencies when it comes to Shin's appearance, as he wants to be stylish and cool to feel like he's confident in himself.
Shin was born to a South Korean mother, whose father was a Taekwondo champion, and a Japanese father, who was a Karate champion. He was pressured by his parents to be a taekwondoist or a karateka and uphold his family legacy. Shin was disinterested because of his desire to being a painter or a musician and his dislike for combat sports.
His stance on martial arts changed as he studied abroad in the United Kingdom and the United States of America and started to watch Vale Tudo fights. Inspired by these fights, Shin decided to study taekwondo because of its "cool, brilliant appearance".
The Shinku Geri (真空蹴り Shinkuu Geri?, Vacuum Kick) is an energized reverse spinning rolling sobat kick that simultaneously launches a crescent-shaped projectile similarly to the Sonic Boom at the opponent. The move can also be done in the air in a downward, diagonal direction.
The Jinrai San Renkyaku (迅雷三連脚 Thunderclap Triple Leg?, Thunderclap Triple Leg) is an anti-air attack where Shin preforms a backflip kicking opponents that are in the area of the flip.
The Shooting Star (シューティングスター Shutingusuta?) is Shin's Super Combo attack in which he performs several Shinku Geris in succession, firing many crescent projectiles at once. Shin finishes the combo with a Jinrai San Renkyaku that emits a great shockwave.
