Lin Fu Ren is a character in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. He is an arms dealer in Hengsha.

Lin Fu Ren operates in the Hung Hua Hotel, on the ground level, first door to the left from the main entrance. He sells various types of weapons, ammunition, weapon upgrades, explosives and miscellaneous items.

As with any other merchant in the game, Jensen can also sell items to him.

Upon Jensen's return to Hengsha, Lin Fu Ren's inventory will be restocked with better items.


  • This character is an allusion to Short Round from the film Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
    • Lin's line, "You make me poor. Deal with you no fun," is an almost verbatim copy of a remark spoken by Short Round after losing a card game.
      • He may say this even when items were bought from him, which would make him richer instead of poorer.
    • Lin mentions "fortune and glory," which the three protagonists sought in Temple of Doom.
    • Also, the first act of Temple of Doom takes place in Shanghai.
  • He wears a distinctive brooch on his scarf, similar to Seurat, Lu Pin Rong and Peng Xin Hao, implying that they are part of a secret society.
  • Lin Fu Ren's face is not unique, it also appears on civilians in Hengsha.
  • He is also the only arms dealer that does not have a bodyguard, instead he is being guarded by a security camera that can be turned off in a room across from where Lin is.
