Lin Lin (リンリン, Rinrin; Viz: Ring-Ring) is a Martial Artist and user of the Palm Bell Fist.


Lin Lin is a young girl of lean build, with a slender figure. She is noted to be attractive, with her dark hair braided and tied into loops with bangs that cover her forehead. She wears a qipao styled top with white arm warmers and a scarf. She accessorizes with bells on her hair, ears and shoes.


Lin Lin is very eager, wanting for the match to begin.[1] She also inquisitive, wanting to know more about Charanko (which was Saitama in diguise) and about Suiryu's abilities. Lin Lin later developed a fear of monsters, shivering at the thought of them.


Human Monster SagaEdit

Monster Raid ArcEdit

Lin Lin is participating at the Super Fight Tournament at the the C-City Super Stadium. This is the second time Lin Lin has participated in the tournament.[2] Her first battle was against Max[3], which she lost. Her body was then taken away on a stretcher, since she was knocked out by Max.[4]

Super Fight ArcEdit

After witnessing Saitama's (who is disguised as Charanko) compelling victory against Choze, as she was seated in the sidelines, Lin Lin audibly ponders why no one has ever heard of Charanko's unbelievable strength.[5] Lin Lin was later present at the closing ceremony, when it was suddenly interrupted by The Three Crows and Gouketsu, who tells them they will become monsters.[6]

Lin Lin and the other martial artists were given a choice to become a monster or die; visibly frightened she was shocked to see some of the fighters accepting the offer.[7] She later watched Suiryu fight the transformed martial artist's and was saved from Choze's energy ball attack.[8] When Suiryu considered to become a monster, Lin Lin frighteningly watched, but was relieved that it was never his intention and cheered for Suiryu.[9] Lin Lin was then knocked out by the crows with the rest of the martial artists.[10]

Monster Associations ArcEdit

Lin Lin is later seen recovering in a hospital with Sour Face and Zakos, as they watch the news about the Monster Association.[11]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Not much is known about Lin Lin's strength. She is rumored to stand at the top of female martial artists.[12] However, she was beaten by Max without any trouble (although Max disagreed) and was called a lightweight by Zakos.[13] She was also no match for a Demon-level threat like The Three Crows.

Physical AbilitiesEdit

Enhanced Speed: Her movements are described to be lightning fast like a work of art.[14]

Fighting StyleEdit

Proficient Martial Artist: Rumored to stand at the top of female martial artists, Lin Lin should have enough skill for such rumors to be created.

  • Palm Bell Fist (掌鈴拳, Shōrin Ken; Viz: Fist of Palm Bells): Has not been shown yet. When fighting Max, Lin Lin leaped and performed a downward strike.

Major BattlesEdit

Participants Chapter(s) Episode(s) Result
Lin Lin vs. Max (Off screen) 61 None Loss


  • In ONE's first storyboard, Lin Lin was Suiryu’s sister. During the finale of the tournament, Suiryu gets drunk, goes all out against Saitama, but loses. Afterwards, Lin Lin comforts him, telling him to work harder in the future. This setting was scrapped because a drunkard vs Gouketsu was deemed too comical and they wanted to show despair. Murata didn’t say who changed the setting.[15]
