The Winning Can is a soda can that is won randomly while buying soda. There is a 1/10 chance of winning it.

In Shenmue, it can be traded in for a free raffle ticket at the Abe Store or Tomato Convenience Store. It can also be exchanged for VMU Icons of the characters through the Shenmue Passport disc.

In Shenmue II, a random Virtua Fighter capsule toy will be awarded inside the can. The only toys that can be awarded are the 1st version of the characters (ex: Akira 1, Jacky 1, etc.), and the rare prizes which are Dural Silver and Dural Gold.
