Karin Kanzuki is a video game character of the Dragon Fighter series, first appearing as hidden character in Dragon Fighter III. She is the elitist rival of Sakura and the step-daughter of the Kanzuki Zaibatsu's head.



She is the only daughter of Louisette (never making any known official appearances, so it is unknown what she looks like), a Belgian woman who gave birth to Karin with her second husband, a Monaco business man, died died due to a stomach cancer when Karin was 4-years-old. Subsequently she married Daigenjuro Kanzuki moving with her child in Japan.

Karin's laugh and mannerisms are derived from the unpleasant "ojou" stereotypes common in anime and manga and "rich person"/"popular schoolgirl"/"spoiled brat" stereotypes of Western animated cartoons and movies; while she typically remains snobbish and haughty as per the standard, other aspects of her personality can vary wildly in other media.

Typical of some rich girls in fictional media, Karin usually refers to other people as "commoners", or inferiors. She lives by her family's motto more than the rest of her family, as she takes majority control of her father's company from under his nose in a hostile takeover (ironic, since he was the one to drive that philosophy into her).

After Karin finds and eventually defeats Sakura in a rematch, she feels that she won only "by chance" and finally admits that Sakura is actually the best of them. Karin then decides to ditch her family's motto of "always winning" (at least when concerning martial arts) and starts to praise fighting itself as more important than victory or defeat, showing a bit of humility.
