Shourinji Ayumu (少林寺(しょうりんじ) (あゆむ)), also known as Shourin (しょうりん), is a defender and midfielder for Raimon.


Inazuma Eleven
  • "Although small bodied/partitioned, he is a master of kung fu footwork insert."
Inazuma Eleven 2


He usually plays as a midfielder. He and Kurimatsu are the smallest members of the original Raimon Eleven. He wanted to study martial arts at Manyuuji Junior High. He was one of the Dark Emperors. Later he is seen cheering on the Inazuma Japan representatives in the representative match.


He is one of the smallest characters in the Inazuma Eleven series. He has black eyes which look like crosses and long brown hair tied in a big ponytail. Apart from this ponytail, there is one bang in front.


Like the other members of Raimon, he shows a lot of respect to Endou as a captain. He is interested in martial arts, so he occasionally does kung-fu poses and some of his hissatsu techniques also reflect this.


Season 1

Shourin is one of the first 7 members of the Raimon soccer club. At first, the club have only 7 members, thus they had to face the threats of being shut down at any moment. But thanks to Endou Mamoru's effort, they were able to get enough members before their match with Teikoku Gakuen, and even the legendary striker Gouenji Shuuya.

It is shown that Shourin's legs have a huge amount of power, as he was able to free Kabeyama from the closet that he was stuck in. Shourin also created a hissatsu for himself, Kung Fu Head. And then in the final against Teikoku Gakuen, he created another hissatsu, Tatsumaki Senpuu and passed through a member of Teikoku. In Episode 5, he tried to create a hissatsu called Jumping Thunder with Kurimatsu, but failed. At the end of season 1, Raimon was victorious and became the champion of Football Frontier.

Season 2

After winning the FF, Shourin joins Raimon in fighting against Aliea Gakuen. But he and some other members like Max, Handa, Shishido, and Kageno were badly injured in their first match with Gemini Storm. They were all sad and apologies to Raimon for not being able to fight with them any longer. But later when Endou came to visit them in the hospital, he noted that they were all fired up about coming back so they could fight Aliea Gakuen.

After Raimon won against Aliea Gakuen's final team, The Genesis, Shourin and the others appeared, this time becoming Dark Emperors' members. With the power of Aliea Meteorite, the Dark Emperors were able to gain absolute advantage during the whole match, Shourin and Shishido created a new hissatsu called Shooting Star. But when the match was going to end, Endou returned to the keeper position. After defeating all of Dark Emperors' hissatsu, his feeling reached Shourin and the others's hearts, broke the Aliea Meteorite, and freed them from its dark power.

In the game, he appears in a scene when the boys say goodbye to Kogure Yuuya at Manyuuji. During the visit, he temporarily joins the school's team.

Season 3

Shourin wasn't chosen for playing in Inazuma Japan, but he and the others still practice normally in Raimon, and always cheering for them. Before their final match with Little Gigant, Shourin and the others sent a video tape to Inazuma Japan, cheering them happily, and surprised them with the crowed new members of Raimon. In episode 126, when Endou and the third years received their graduation diploma, Shourin and the second years were all crying, because they knew that they'll have to say goodbye to them. He was seen to be part of the Raimon's gymnastic club for a while. Shourin played happily in their Graduation match, and in the end, he and Natsumi persuaded Endou to tell them his last words, as the captain of Raimon.

Inazuma Eleven GO Chrono Stone

He only appeared at the end of episode 50 when Tenma and his team traveled to the moment when Raimon won the Football Frontier in order to have a friendly match with them.

Inazuma Eleven Orion no Kokuin

He appeared in the last episode, where the reformed Raimon team was ready to have a match with Inakuni in the Football Frontier Autumn Tournament. It can be seen that his position changed from midfielder to defender.
