At a very young age, Shun’ei discovered the Amplified Spectres — a mysterious power he could not control. Because of that, his parents abandoned Shun’ei. Tung Fu Rue found him, and under his guidance, Shun’ei learned to suppress his powers. 

Before the 14th tournament, Shun’ei formed a team China with his friend Meitenkun and his mentor Tung Fu Rue. Shun’ei was looking forward to meeting Kyo Kusanagi since he knew stories of him being able to seal great evil. 

Verse, an unknown entity, interrupted the tournament during the main event. After a hard fight, Shun’ei was able to defeat Verse. When the dust settled, he continued his training to keep the Amplified Spectres under control.

Before the fifteenth tournament, Tung Fu Rue decided against participating, so Shun’ei and Meitenkun teamed up with Benimaru Nikaido, the long frenemy of Kyo Kusanagi.


Shun’ei is a good guy who fears his cursed power going out of control. Because of that, he trains really hard to control it, so nothing bad can happen.


This “amped-up illusionist” uses Hakkyokuseiken buffed with telekinetic powers. That results in him excelling at fast combo attacks and air combat. Quick recoveries and air dashes are great for baiting opponents.


Shun’ei is a young male with green hair. He wears headphones and bandages that help him to keep his powers under control. His white shirt has short sleeves with purple accents, and the left trouser leg of his black jeans is rolled up. On his back lies a blue jacket with yellow and red bottom and black ornament.
