Shuumatsu no Valkyrie: Record of Ragnarok Wiki

One who never doubts...never yields...never relies...and always stands as the leader of his people. That is what makes a king."
Qin Shi Huang to Hades in Chi You

Qin Shi Huang is Humanity's representative in the seventh round of Ragnarok, going against Hades.

He's the founder of the Qin Dynasty and the first emperor to unify China. His real name is Ying Zheng (嬴政). Qin Shi Huang (秦始皇), also known as Shi Huang Di (始皇帝), literally means "First Emperor of Qin". He is widely regarded as the greatest Chinese emperor of all time, despite sometimes being viewed as a tyrant.


Qin Shi Huang is a man of average stature; comparable to Jack the Ripper in overall body composition but a very handsome man nonetheless. Qin Shi Huang wears an intricate bare-shouldered robe, resembling ones worn by Chinese Empresses. He also wears a blindfold decorated with a patterned streak that covers his eyes. He has two tattoos of centipede: On his right cheek, going downward vertically from his right eye, which is covered by the blindfold; and the other on his back. He wears nail guards on his right hand's middle finger and index finger.


He seems to be extremely confident in himself, seeing as how he walked into the Gods' area and sat down in Hades' chair (though he was clueless to where is the waiting room). He is extremely proud of his rank as emperor, to the point of brazenly ordering Ares and Hermes to kneel before him and show respect. Furthermore, he is also quite fearless and daring, to the point of attacking Ares without being afraid of the god and still ignoring him as if he were nothing.


Golden Age: As a soul in the afterlife, Qin Shi Huang possesses the appearance and skills that he had during his Golden Age, the age in which he was at his peak.

Godly Strength:[1] Qin Shi Huang was able to destroy multiple corridor walls of the Valhalla Arena and casually lifted Ares over his head and threw him on the ground with a single arm. It should be noted that this show of strength was displayed before Qin Shi Huang received his Völundr.

Godly Speed & Reflexes: Qin Shi Huang can move at speeds matching the likes of Gods, as shown in his fight against Hades where he could keep up with his countless afterimages and blinding speeds, even managing to overwhelm him.

Immense Stamina & Endurance: Qin Shi Huang possess immense physical and mental stamina, being able to fight against the demon Chiyou for six days without showing signs of fatigue or passing out in the process.

Martial Arts Expert: Qin Shi Huang is a very skilled martial artist, during his fight against Chiyou he managed to create his own martial art which is derived from five different fighting styles. By mastering this martial art, Qin Shi Huang has access to a great variety of techniques that he can use in order to gain an advantage over his opponents.

  • Unarmed Combat Proficiency: Qin Shi Huang was able to defeat Chiyou (the demon god of war) using nothing but his own body. He is also skilled enough in Unarmed Combat to the point that he can also stand up to the king of the underworld himself.


Chi You:[2] A martial art style created by Qin Shi Huang. It comprises of five different fighting styles, considered to be the ultimate martial art. Qin Shi Huang mastered the techniques during his battle with the Demon God, Chiyou. After beating him, Qin Shi Huang named his martial art style after him. Chiyou (Martial art).png
Heavenly Hand of Defence.png Heavenly Hand of Defense (しょう力天鳯りきてんほう, Shōriki Tenhō): With his Almighty Spaulders in their armor form, Qin Shi Huang intercepts an attack and absorbs all of its force. After taking the force of an attack into his body, Qin Shi Huang is able to redirect it through something else. This was shown when Qin Shi Huang absorbed the blow of Hades' Persephone Roa and redirected it into his bident, causing the God of the Dead to end up flying across the arena.


Zhijiatao.png Zhijiatao (指甲套 or Nail Guards): Qin Shi Huang possesses 5 zhijiatao in total, with 2 on his right hand, and 3 on his left. They are symbols of nobility and wealth in ancient China.
Almighty Spaulders.png Almighty Spaulders (しんかいしゅう, Shinra Kaishū): A Divine Weapon in the form of shoulder plates provided by the Völundr of the 10th Valkyrie, Alvitr. The Almighty Spaulders are apparently able to change form depending on Qin's needs, as, after slamming Hades to a wall from the arena, a five-point star appears before Qin with five different weapons on it's points (Armor, Spear, Halberd, Crossbow and Sword).


  • (To Hermes) "Humble yourselves. It matters not what this place is. You're in the presence of an emperor. The throne is where I am."[3]
  • (To Hades) "Hades, king of the Netherworld, was it? Let me tell you something. There can only be one king in the world... and that man is I."[4]
  • (To Chiyou) "All the kings before me... were not kings. I'll defeat you, and become "the king where it all began"!"[5]
  • (To Hades) "One who never doubts... never yields... never relies... and always stands as the leader of his people. That is what makes a king."[5]


  • Qin Shi Huang's design was revealed early thanks to Chapter 11, Volume 3 of Shuumatsu no Valkyrie - The Legend of Lü Bu: The Flying General released in December 2020. His design in The Legend of Lü Bu was explicitly stated to be identical to his design in Shuumatsu no Valkyrie.
  • In Chinese culture, centipedes are associated with powerful magic potions despite being known to have a venomous bite. Therefore, the centipede tattoo on Qin Shi Huang's right cheek is probably there to reflect on his pursuit for the elixir of life, known as Xiandan (仙丹) in Chinese, throughout his life.
  • Qin Shi Huangs martial art (Chiyou) is derived from five different fighting styles. Each of these fighting styles were named after one of the five tools of war that were supposedly created by the demon Chiyou. It is worth noting that the martial art itself was also named after the demon god.
