Shinpachi Shimura is a main character of the GinTama series and ally in Kingdom Hearts: Awakening.
Shinpachi is a member of the Yorozuya, a samurai in training and can be considered one of the three main protagonists of Gintama. He is the 'straight guy' of the series, delivering the requisite reality-checks or punchlines against other characters' farcical antics. He has limited dojo training, but inherited a dojo together with his older sister Shimura Tae called Koudoukan, specializing in the Tendoumushin sword-fighting style.
Shinpachi helped Lexaln recover when he and his friends visit Edo. He can be seen defending the planet when the Heartless attack.
Shinpachi has black hair and brown eyes. He wears a light blue keikogi with blue linings and a blue hakama. Bespectacled, many other characters have pointed out that Shinpachi's glasses are his charm point. Gintoki Sakata even went as far as to say that Shinpachi's glasses make out 95% of him and that they are more Shinpachi than Shinpachi himself, with the rest being 3% water and 2% garbage.
Frequently teased by Gin, supposedly his employer, along with having a 'sister-complex' for being overly attached to his sister, make Shinpachi the stereotypical downtrodden character. Because he does not have as much physical strength as Kagura, he is often bullied by her, who often tends to literally give him a thrashing.
Shinpachi also likes to sing, and has been seen singing karaoke-versions of various songs by his idol, Tsuu Terakado, but is completely tone-deaf.
Powers and Abilities
Shinpachi studied in a dojo, and thus has very good kenpo skills. He fights with a wooden sword.
