Shaheen is a new playable character in the Tekken series making his debut in Tekken 7. Shaheen’s gameplay mainly revolves around poking and enforcing his full crouch mix-up. He has good pokes, mix-ups, and a variety of counter hit tools to frustrate and oppress the opponent. The skill required to play Shaheen effectively is also very low; making him a viable tournament character and a great introductory character for new players. He has three key weaknesses: mediocre plus-on-block moves, no consistent long-range punishment, and a non-existent wall game. To conclude, Shaheen is a very straightforward character with a very straightforward game plan.

Strengths
  • Every core "Tekken Tool" in the book
  • Easy to pickup
  • Slide enabling strong Full Crouch Mixup
  • Wide variety of good pokes
Weaknesses
  • Not many oppressive gimmicks to overwhelm the opponent
  • No "crazy moves" to control the neutral or different aspects of the game
  • Very straightforward, will require a good sense of timing/fundamentals to avoid being predictable
