Chin is an aging alcoholic who, through a combination of brainwashing and pure drunken belligerence, has managed to bring a pair of talented teenage martial artists firmly under his thumb. We can only speculate as to what bizarre and degrading goings-on he forces his mini-cult to engage in behind closed doors.
Although multiple efforts to rescue the unfortunate teens have been attempted, they have proved fruitless as, according to an ATF spokesman, "we won't fuck with anybody who can shoot fire farther than we can."

Gameplay Overview

Chin is a cheap ass motherfucker, the cheapest character in KOF98. He is low tier (so 'they' say), but don't let it fool you. His cr.C beats virtually everything in the game. He is the only character that can beat Kyo's j.B clean with a normal attack. Fuck this cheap ass motherfucker.

I'm just joking, but really he is a lot more effective because of that single move then people realize. His j.C has a ton of priority as well, and is an instant overhead. His flame super is one of the best high-priority supers in the game, and a Chin with meter can be scarier than any of the top tiers.
