Cham Cham (チャムチャム, Chamu Chamu) is a character from the Samurai Shodown series who was introduced in Samurai Shodown II. She replaced Tam Tam’s role in the cast. She is the only character of the series to star in her own pachinko game.
She is the younger sister of the character Tam Tam. She secretly took a village heirloom, the “Tangiers Stone” (タンジルストーン, Tanjiru Sutōn), to play with when a goblin snatched it away. She thought her parents would be angry because of it so she sets out with her pet chimpanzee “Paku Paku” (who is actually Tam Tam transformed as punishment for his failure to protect the stone) in order to look for it.
She is an energetic and optimistic girl. She’s not the smartest one of her tribe, easily angered if she thinks she’s being insulted, but she shares her brother’s bravery.
Cham Cham is a catgirl in appearance and has feline mannerisms; for example, she walks on all fours when disarmed (she holds her weapon in one hand when she has it). Her taunts are also animalistic (in one, she meows and stretches like a cat, while in the other, she sits on her haunches and scratches behind her ear with her foot). Her boomerang can be thrown high into the air or at ground level, leaving her unarmed for a time; however, this may not be a total disadvantage, as her claws and kicks are enough to keep her foes at bay. Paku Paku may also be summoned to attack for her, which includes throwing skulls, emitting fireballs, and a spinning spit-kick attack.
