Shin (シン) is one of the 7th Universe's Kaiōshin, who alongside Elder Kaiōshin and the Hakaishin Beerus, maintains balance within their universe.


During Shin's service as the Kaiōshin of the East (ひがしかいおうしん, Higashi no Kaiōshin; FUNimation "Eastern Supreme Kai"; Literally meaning "World King God of the East") of the 7th Universe's Eastern quadrant, Shin was the youngest and most inexperienced amongst the fellow Kaiōshin.




Shin's full appearance.

Shin is a being of short stature, with light pink skin — light purple in the anime — a large mohawk, and stern black eyes. He wears the traditional Kaiōshin garb — a puffed sleeved outfit with a blue sash, dark blue pants, a dark blue robe with gold lining, buttoned at the chest, and white boots. In the anime, Shin's sleeved outfit is colored light blue, the sash is orange, the pants are the same light blue, and his shoes are a vivid red. Like some Kaiōshin, he wears green Potara earrings, which are colored yellow in the anime.


As a Kaiōshin, Shin has many abilities that are beyond most mortals ability to comprehend or accomplish. In terms of power, he was vastly superior to Piccolo during the time of the 25th Tenka-Ichi Budōkai despite his large gains in power since the Cell Game. His attendant Kibito even claimed he could kill Freeza at full power with just one blow (prior to his training to become Golden Freeza at least), something which Son Gokū thought was amazing.

Shin's colour scheme.

  • On Kanzenban volume covers, Shin is depicted with light pink skin, contradicting his earlier colour scheme in Dragon Ball Volume 37. Furthermore, Shin's coloratization in the Digital Color Edition is a blend of the Kanzenban and the anime's rendition of Shin, leaving him with the light pink skin of the Kanzenban but the clothing color scheme of the anime.
  • In the localization for the Supersonic Warriors series, Shin is erroneously called "King Kai" and yet referred to as "Supreme Kai" in dialogue.
