China is a monkey with a headband and earrings. He has brown hair, brown beard, a gnashing mouth and an angry facial expression. He also has pink half circles under his eyes. He is mainly based on Sun Wukong, the Monkey King, a character from the classic Chinese novel: Journey to the West.
For China's first Power Shot, the Monkey Shot, when the crown is still intact, numerous monkeys (with an appearance similar to China) floating on clouds carrying golden spears appear and fly towards the opponent's side of the pitch, although they do absolutely no damage. They are only meant to cause some confusion when the ball with a bright light behind is launched. If the user manages to block the ball, he will be put in a basket and will be whacked by the monkeys, making it possible to go through him. After four seconds he reappears on the field.
If the crown gets knocked off and China has got red flames in his eyes, his Power Shot will change to Buddha Shot. Wherever the player is, he will disappear in a cloud of smoke and grow a golden Buddhist statue from the ground holding a bottle that pops off the cap (the ball comes immediately behind the cap), sending it diagonally down towards the opponent's goal. This makes it extremely easy to block, resulting in the opponent getting "sucked" back into the bottle for two seconds, and appearing at the same spot where he got "sucked in."
China's first shot, Monkey Shot, is simply a straight line though it harbors much flair to distract you. Do what you would normally do to block shots such as Cameroon'sThunderbolt Shot and Valentine'sValentine Shot. His other Power Shot, Buddhist Shot, is even easier to counter. Simply run forward, jump, and kick to counter it. You can also block both shots by jumping in front of China.
He is the first animal in the game, the second could be Finland and the third could be Senegal.
China is a reference to Sun Wukong, the Monkey King from the Chinese novel Journey to the West that was published in the 16th century. Another explanation for China being a monkey could be that the monkey is one of the twelve animals on the Chinese zodiac.
He is, with Z and PumpKill, the only Character in the game with animated eyes.
