This piece of Shuran fan art is dedicated to those who not only fancy Shuran but also think it would be phenomenal to see him specialise in the martial art I gave him which is Professional Wrestling in the vein of WWE, TNA, and many other wrestling federation that comes at the tip of my tongue. Sit back, relax, and be thrilled at Shuran’s large-and-in-charge bravado as a professional wrestler.
Let us now be acquainted with a hulkingly powerful panther Yokai known for his devastating moves in the ring all powered up by his brute strength, raw power, and imposing size. Ladies and gentlemen, give a round of applause for Shuran all decked up in attire similar to Zangief from Street Fighter but green. It looks like he is prepared to break some foes’ bones into smithereens.
As always, this is my AU headcanon. Therefore, I made Shuran Izayoi’s eldest son as well as Hakkaku’s and Ginta’s older brother. With that said, let’s get ready to rumble!

Shuran is a wrestler who fights with power, strength, formidability, and intimidation. He does his best to keep his imposing body in great shape by weightlifting, circuit training, and keeping himself healthy and well. Every time he steps into the arena, spectators and opponents alike would be astounded at his massively imposing frame which he can use to his advantage, especially against stronger opponents, larger opponents, and even skilled opponents who think that he is too slow to capture them with his crushing submission holds. Even better is when he participates in martial arts tournaments with Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, Hakkakú, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran in which he would represent the importance of raw power and strength in any fight. Shuran may be one of the strongest wrestlers in Japan, but he is also an amicably jolly soul who enjoys fine food from rib-eye steak to halibut, fishing for salmon and tuna, hanging out with his best friends including Tommy, Rocky, Zhane, Mike, and Ryan, and spending time with his family. He is even a protective, loving, and loyal older brother to Hakkaku and Ginta, thus making them an inseparable trio for life, and is just as supportive and happy for his two younger brothers being in a loving relationship with Shunran.
There you have it, ladies, gentlemen, and martial arts aficionados of all ages and from all over the world. Shuran a powerful and intimidating pro wrestler who never shirks from his strength-training and does everything he can to reach greater heights as a fighter and as a person. His massively imposing size and brute strength indubitably put him at an advantage against stronger, larger, and/or more skilled opponents. Every submission hold and throw he has at his disposal would land his opponents in punishing pain. Brute strength and raw power aside, Shuran even does his best to never lose sight of cooperation and willingness to make meaningful and genuine connections thanks to his big personality and amicable joviality. Inside the ring, he is a savage and bloodthirsty beast who does not hesitate at crushing his enemies to smithereens. Outside the ring, he is a loyal soul who stands by his friends including Tommy, Rocky, Zhane, Mike, and Ryan and family including his dearest younger brothers Hakkaku and Ginta, celebrates the victories they have acquired, and learns from the losses they endure.
I hope you all enjoyed this, and I will see you in the next submission. Take care, stay safe, and keep on staying strong inside and outside the wrestling ring, everybody.
Shuran from Inuyasha belongs to Rumiko Takahashi and Sunrise.
