Chin Taimei (チン・タイメイ or ちん・たいめい), shortened to Chintai in localized manuals, is a recurring enemy from the Double Dragon series, first appearing as a regular enemy in the NES version of the first game and returning as a boss in the second game.

Chin is a skilled Kung-Fu practitioner, and master of the Koh-oh Ken style. He has joined the ranks of the Black Warriors merely as a way to improve his skills and fight strong opponents. Having been defeated by the Lee brothers, Chin returns for a rematch, this time armed with escrima, but he was once again defeated, presumably dying from the injuries sustained in the fight. His older brother Chin Seimei would seek revenge for him in the third game, joining the Lee brothers after being defeated as well.

He also appears as a common enemy in Double Dragon Advance.


In the NES version of the first game, there is a trick to defeating Chin Taimei easily at the end of Mission 2. When he appears, climb down two ladders to scroll him off the screen. The game will think that he has been defeated, and the mission will end.
