Street Fighter

Karin is a character that appears in Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Street Fighter 5. She is born in an affluent family that owns the Kanzuki corporation. Her family's tradition says you must be the best at everything, and Karin follows it. When her family is threatened by Shadaloo, she uses her vast resources to track them down and defeat them. She considers Sakura Kasugano as her rival, as Sakura was the first one to best her. While tracking Shadaloo, she meets Sakura and fights her, but as she defeats Sakura she realizes that the fight is what's important, not winning or losing.

In M.U.G.E.N, Karin Kanzuki was made by various authors.

Gameplay (POTS)

Karin is a well rounded character that is moderately agile. She is somewhat hard to use in gameplay since her combos cannot be easily accessed. Her A.I. is moderately competitive and is challenging to fight for a novice or the average M.U.G.E.N player. She will charge and use combos whenever the chance arises and will counter at various times.
