You cannot win, please leave while you can.
~ Shinkai

Shinkai is a playable character in SAOF Arena. She uses the voices of Shikinami from KanColle.


While exploring a secret dungeon, Shinkai found a portal and activated it. She unintentionally got sucked in and was brought to Paradox's world.


Shinkai is, without a doubt, one of the strongest players in SAOF Arena. As a Machina on her wheeled shoes, she attacks fast, and deals a bunch of damage. Her primary weapon is a heavy Rail Cannon. Her secondary weapons specialize in ballistic damage and range from retractable gatling guns to heavy cannons. Her style is costly but extremely destructive attacks. Her character system is the Awakening system. Every time she hits or gets hit, her Awakening bar gets charged. When she gets one level of Awakening charged, she can activate it. Five swords will appear and float close to her back. Awakening overclocks her processors and she gets enhanced analysis of everything happening around her, along with 1.5x damage and 1.5x HP. Her evasion and luck are also increased to almost the max. This mode last for the next 3 turns. There are three levels to her Awakening. The more levels she activates, the longer it stays active (6 turns for Level II, and 9 turns for Level III), and the higher the multiplier becomes (2x for Level II, and 2.5 for Level III).
