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
Every core "Tekken Tool" in the book
Easy to pickup
Slide enabling strong Full Crouch Mixup
Wide variety of good pokes
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
