Shu (シュウ, "Shū") is a fictional character in the manga series of Shaman King. He is one of two zombies, the other being Kyo, that was made solely to serve and take care of Tao Ran.[1]


In life Shu was a handsome strategist of the region of Wu, during the Later Han Dynasty. It was during this period that he became famous for his resourcefulness, but he could also play beautiful music.

After his death, his corpse was turned into a Jiang Shi to serve and take care of Tao Ran. Unlike Kyo, Shu's personality is more aggressive and has great confidence in himself.

Present TimeEdit

Anime/Manga DifferenceEdit

Like so many other things about the Tao Family Shu was never seen in the anime series, and also in the manga series, he is only a background character that is never mentioned or interacted with.


  • Although being a Jiang Shi, Tao Yúan is apparently jealous of both Shu and Kyo, even towards this day. However, as he does not view being jealous as manly, he doesn't talk about it.
