Shun'ei is a member of KOF XIV's "China Team" along with Tung Fu Rue and Meitenkun. He is the central character of KOF XIV's main story arc. Shun'ei is a manipulator of illusions. Due to his mysterious powers, he was abandoned at a young age by his parents and was raised as a disciple of Tung. Through his training, he learned to control his hidden powers. As Tung's last disciple, he sets out to challenge other fighters from all over the world with his close friend Meitenkun.

It is revealed that the Shun'ei has one of Verse's power on his left-half, one of the two creatures, along with an unknown blue creature, created from the result of Ash Crimson's doing on changing his timeline to erase himself from being Saiki's descendants and kills his ancestor, with their power fragment are somehow implanted Shun'ei when he was a kid in a new timeline. After Verse's defeat, Shun'ei is advised by Kyo to continue his training to keep his powers under control. Shun'ei agrees and vows to train harder.

I think I'm too American to "like" this design.... I'm just not sure. My first thoughts on Shun'ei: He looks like a character ripped straight from Xuan Dou Zhi Wang. Team China also? ...Makes sense. Shun'ei has a pretty straight forward fighting style, albeit more "agile" than your typical cool KOF guys. I think I'd like him more if he was colored differently. His default color scheme looks more like "Color #13" if you know what I mean. The pasty green / teal hair isn't working for me... and his hipster "one pant leg up" is just obnoxious. Are you 16 Shun'ei? Do you even have a license to drive? lol.

Furthermore, his fighting style a bit repetitive and animates slightly awkwardly IMO (needs more frames of animation). Fighting style-wise, Shun'ei holds up a bit better. His animation is solid enough... and I like the flying fists concept (which cleverly shares with the final boss), along with his agile special moves. He also hits pretty hard, which is important. Overall, I prefer beating up Shun'ei with Iori, Kyo, or K'... a real protagonist. Buuuurn.
