Karin Kanzuki is a playable character from the Street Fighter series by Capcom. She debuted in the arcade version of Street Fighter Alpha 3 in 1998  and returned only in Capcom Fighting Jam, another 2D fighting game that combined characters from different Capcom games in 2004.

She also made it into all later console ports of Street Fighter Alpha 3 and the crossover strategical RPG Namco X Capcom in 2005 for the Playstation 2. On the 17th September 2015 she was revealed to return in Street Fighter V (2016) via a trailer.

Karin Kanzuki is a schoolgirl and a rival of Sakura Kasugano. For a long time it was unsure if Karin would ever return in a Street Fighter game due to copyright issues.
