SNK Wiki

Lin (Mandarin Chinese: ; Japanese: リン) was one of the new characters introduced in The King of Fighters 2000 as a member of the Benimaru Team.

He is voiced by Takaya Kuroda.


He, along with the Flying Brigands subplot, was created without the entire staff's knowledge, leading to some developers being surprised by his team's ending. Although he is no longer an active member in KOF, his story and character have not been abandoned.[1]


Lin is very serious and very loyal to the Hizoku.


  • Toxokinesis - Lin has some control over poison.
    • Poison Blood - Lin's blood was transformed into poison. That poison doesn't harm him in any way. It has some acid properties.
    • Spit Poison - Lin can spit his own blood and can even transform it into a small cloud of poison.
  • Slashing Hands - Lin's hands can cut and pierce like knives.
  • Hand Celerity - Lin can perform several high-speed hand strikes.
  • Invisibility - Lin can become invisible for a small amount of time.
  • Teleportation - Lin can teleport himself.
  • Necromantic Limb Travel - Lin can pierce the ground with his arms and make them appear somewhere else.
  • Translocation - Lin can move to somewhere nearby in the blink of an eye.

Fighting Style

His fighting style is probably based on Kung Fu, particularly Bajiquan or Piguaquan (as they're both originated in Hebei), as he uses several hand strikes and acrobatic maneuvers. He is silent and deadly.
