Fictional Characters Wiki

Yurin is a female martial artist who went to Crane School with Tien Shinhan in the past. She currently trains under Tenshinhan (John Burgmeier) at the Tenshin-Style Dojo. She was voiced by Ai Maeda in the Japanese version, and by Luci Christian in the American English version, who also voiced Medusa Gorgon in Soul Eater.


Yurin is a young woman of average weight and height. She has dark green hair, which she keeps in the style of two big loops in the shape of a bow. During her initial appearance, Yurin wears a blue Chinese dress (very similar to the one Chi-Chi once wore in the original Dragon Ball), with white flower buttons, and a pair of red high-heeled shoes. Later on, she is given a martial arts uniform by Master Roshi, which consists of a short green one-shoulder dress with a white undershirt, long black wrist-guards, a yellow belt, a red miniskirt and pair of red shoes.


Yurin is a devoted martial artist and desires to learn as many techniques in order to get stronger. She formerly resented Tien Shinhan (as the latter leaves without offering to spar with her). Since then, she becomes vengeful and has made it her mission to locate Tien and sabotage his Dojo. This feeling of animosity had caused her to not care about the innocents that were caught in the crossfire. After her plans were thwarted, she apologizes to the civilians and becomes Tien's student without any objections.

Yurin dislikes lecherous behavior, as seen when she tries to avoid Master Roshi's perverted advances; she also berates the Turtle-Hermit both for giving her a martial arts outfit that included a mini-skirt and becoming flustered at him for seeing her underwear.


When Yurin was young, she went to the Crane School with Tien and Chiaotzu. There, she learned many martial art skills and put them to use later in life. She had wanted to fight with Tien, but he was already leaving with his best friend Chiaotzu. Yurin goes on to learn witchcraft and black magic so she can get her revenge on Tien.

Dragon Ball Super

Years later, Yurin arrives at the Tenshin-Style Dojo, ready so sabotage it, but she decides to gain the trust from Tien Shinhan before she gets down to business. She puts on an act, dressing herself up in martial arts clothing, before entering the dojo. However, her plan almost backfires very quickly, because when she is asked by Tien about her martial arts experience, she says that she does not have any at all, but says that she has heard it is good for beauty. Tien tells her to find another dojo, clarifying that his dojo is for people that are truly seeking to master the martial arts, but her act is saved due to the very excited Master Roshi. After that she is given a martial arts uniform by him, which due to Roshi's perverted nature happens to include a miniskirt. She manages to get out of Master Roshi's grip, and then she reveals that coming to Tien's dojo to train was never her intention. Yurin then demonstrates that she has had training, not in martial arts however, but in witchcraft and black magic. After being constantly annoyed by Master Roshi, she starts to brainwashed Tien's students. She places a paper talisman on their foreheads, and using her witchcraft techniques, summons dark energy into their bodies and turning them into demon-like creatures. Later, she does the same to Master Roshi. However, her plan fails and the town was nearly destroyed. She apologizes to the citizens, and officially enrolls in Tien's dojo and becomes a student of his. ]
