In this Chinese name, the family name is Cheng.

Cheng Sinzan (Chinese: 陳 秦山, Japanese: チン・シンザン) is a character from the Fatal Fury series.


Cheng is a wealthy businessman who is friends with millionaires and common people alike, having risen out of poverty into riches and attained by his own hard work and determination. He is actually a former student of Master Tung Fu Rue and was taught alongside Jeff Bogard and Geese Howard. In their prime, the three of them were known as the "Three Brothers of Godly Battle". However, since he participated in rigged bets and prohibited street fights, Tung expelled him from the Hakkyokuseiken school. Cheng comments that Tung was very frightening at that time.

In Fatal Fury 2, he hears rumors about Wolfgang Krauser from the Chinese mafia and enters the King of Fighters tournament to gain publicity. He hopes to use his fame to start his own dojo chain. Although he lost during the tournament, he gained a measure of success and earned a hearty profit. He continues to live off his fortune and work in his company.

In his vacation time, he sometimes visits South Town and pilots a rented helicopter to observe the streets below. In Fatal Fury 3: Road to the Final Victory, Cheng appears to have gained word of both Geese's return and that someone is seeking the Hakkyoseiken Sacred Scrolls of Qin, and visits Southtown, knowing that Geese has one of the scrolls in his possession. While he is brushed off by the cast to warn them at Pao Pao Cafe West, he eventually comes to aid them. He makes an appearance in Hon Fu's stage in Port Town in later rounds as the platform the fighters stand on eventually is elevated by its attached helicopter. He also is the sole spectator of the inevitable fight against Geese at Geese Tower. When Geese makes a retreat upon setting his rooftop garden on fire as a distraction and trap, Cheng offers a ride in his helicopter, and drops off the fighter at South Station to face Ryuji Yamazaki.


Cheng is a happy-go-lucky guy who loves to indulge in the good things of life. He is generous and open-hearted to his friends yet greedy when it comes to food, women, and money. He can also be very lazy when he's at work. His Fatal Fury 2 story depicts him playing golf with Robert Garcia.

Although his intentions are not really evil, Cheng's incredible amount of greed and hunger for money blinds him from more important matters. Only interested in becoming a rich man at any cost, Cheng usually overlooks many situations, in such a manner that when he tries to find out what's going on, he usually finds himself in big trouble. Nevertheless, the ambition of Cheng could be as big as his own stomach.
