Shuri is the younger sister of T'Challa from the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie Black Panther.


The foremost scientist in her nation of Wakanda at sixteen years old, she is also a princess (as her older brother is King). Vastly intelligent, she is also excitable and somewhat disregarding of some of her nation's traditions.


Commmon Tropes & Storylines

  • Queen Shuri works can include AU fics where Shuri is the sole heir to the throne, or fics set after Thanos's snap. Some of these works age up Shuri, to make her role more believable or, to allow for shipping with canonically older characters.
  • Alternative Universes often place Shuri in High School AUs or College AUs. There are also canon divergent AUs where Shuri ends up attending the same school as Peter Parker, and other teenage MCU characters.


Shuri was rarely shipped following her appearance in Black Panther, and this is mainly due to the character's canonical age and a lack of similarly aged characters in the source material.

The gen pairing of Peter Parker & Shuri is very common. They appeared in extended MCU works before they both Avengers: Infinity War was released. The pairing was encouraged by comments by actor Tom Holland, and is often tagged Science Bros 2.0. The pairing Peter Parker/Shuri is much less common but does appear.
