TEKKEN 7 – Shaheen

Useful T7 Info:


Difficulty – Easy

Shaheen has a very straight forward gameplan. His goal is to frustrate the opponent by staying as close to them as possible whilst poking them down, in the hope that they will press buttons to escape. Shaheen’s 4 strings (4,1, 4,4 and 4,3) are extremely fast and damaging CH launchers with easy combos afterwards. He can also threaten the opponent with his slide, a knockdown low from crouching with strong okizeme afterwards. This encourages the opponent to duck into his mid options, one being a safe mid launcher. He has a cancel from some of his moves which puts him into crouching, a perfect position to enforce his slide/mid mixups. This can force the opponent to retaliate in an attempt to challenge the mixup which again, just plays into Shaheen’s CH game. While his offense is pretty strong, he does have good defensive aspects. His hopkick has good range for a whiff punisher, his block punishment is very strong, especially from WS. While his mids are pretty strong, his lows are mediocre outside of slide in terms of frames and range.


  • Strong CH game.
  • Good hard hitting mixup.
  • Strong punishment.
  • High damage output.
  • Good safe mid launchers.


  • Low pokes are mediocre. 

Recommended for players who like:

  • A pretty 50/50 character (from crouch).
  • Strong CH gameplay.
  • Simplistic chars.
