Jin Chonshu (秦 崇秀, Japanese: Jin Chonshū, Pinyin: Qín Chóngxiù, on'yomi: Shin Sūshū) is a character from the Fatal Fury series and who also makes an appearance in Neo Geo Battle Coliseum. Chonshu first appeared as one of three bosses in Fatal Fury 3, supposedly appearing to be the last boss following Ryuji Yamazaki.
If the player performed well, Chonshu's brother Chonrei would be fought as the true last boss afterwards. If the player did not do well throughout the course of the game, then the player's character would fight Chonshu in one of the first two stages. Otherwise, Chonshu would fight in the third stage. After defeating Chonshu, his older brother Jin Chonrei appears. Regardless of whether or not Chonrei was reached, the player's character's ending would play afterwards.
He is voiced by Kappei Yamaguchi.
Chonshu is the younger twin brother of Chonrei. When they were six, they lost their parents to an epidemic around their home. Before their father died, he spoke of Qin Wang Long (秦王龍), one of their family's ancient ancestors. Wang Long was a celebrated general of the great Qin Shi Huang, who single-handedly slain 1,000 men by his hand. Their father convinced them that they had the same blood of this warrior and soon passed away. Left to fend for themselves, the brothers worked together to support themselves and live up to their family name. As they grew older, they also began to detest other people. When they were fourteen, they were bullied by children and left in a half dead state on the streets. Two spirits of their 2, 200 year old ancestors possessed their bodies.
The spirit that possessed Chonrei was known as Qin Kong Long (秦空龍), making the boy into a fearsome monster in combat. The spirit that possessed Chonshu was Qin Hai Long (秦海龍), who was also Kong's younger brother. During the Qin Dynasty, they created the "Qin Book of Secrets" (known in modern times as the "Jin scrolls"). Within these scrolls lie Wang Long's soul, who is actually Kong's son. Knowing that they cannot exist in this realm without these scrolls, the spirits look for them to resurrect Wang Long and their original bodies into the realm of the living. They then wanted to continue their conquests in society.
They know the scrolls are in South Town, and send Ryuji Yamazaki to search the city, however several other characters are also searching the scrolls for different reasons. It is said that these scrolls will determine who is strongest fighter in the world. After the climax of Fatal Fury 3, Geese Howard successfully collected all three scrolls. Both brothers continue their search for them. When they find the scrolls, Chonrei disobeys his ancestors and tears them up. His ancestors leave their bodies and the twins continue their lives as normal children under Tung's wing. His ending in Real Bout Fatal Fury 2 suggests that Chonshu eventually becomes one of Kim's students to differentiate himself from his brother.
Chonshu is very stubborn. He does not know when to lose and has a strong desire for revenge, but after Real Bout, the two brothers seem to be repenting. He's also very sarcastic and openly very taunting towards his opponents.
