Cyan makes a small cameo during the data install sequence. If the player repeatedly presses during the install, Cyan will spin across the snowfield struggling to control a suit of Magitek Armor.

- Legend Cards
A samurai sworn to defend Doma, an eastern land whose royal castle was decimated by Kefka's treachery. Cyan joined the Returners to avenge the death of his liege and his beloved wife and child.
Cyan appears as a recruitable character. He joins the party after clearing the Phantom Train for the first time. He was also the Tier 2 recruit in the Touched by Magic Challenge Event, and could also be recruited by accepting and completing the Bonus Quest "Complete Imperial Camp Classic (VI)". He later appeared in Two Sides of a Coin.
Cyan is a Samurai. His combat role is Physical Attack.
Cyan, unlike Cloud recruited before him, is far from an excellent addition to the party. His stats are mediocre, many of his stats being inferior to Sephiroth, Auron, and Gilgamesh, only beating Firion, and has an extremely limited ability set which limits his usefulness severely. Unfortunately for him as well as a couple of other units with limited equipment compatibility, he can also easily fall victim to the game's randomness at drawing new equipment and may not get the katana he needs to perform at his best. However, Cyan does have one good point: he is one of the few characters able to equip all the armor in the game which lets players easily keep his defense and resistance in check.

- Additional information
Cyan was the first character to receive a second copy of his Memory Crystal I. These copies are appropriately located on the Phantom Train under Elite difficulty, and on Mt. Zozo's Summit in the World of Ruin during Touched by Magic. These locations reference his places of deepest pain in the original game.
- 3★ - No. 0101: "A great warrior spoken of in another world, where he played a role in the great conflict between humankind and espers. A samurai, he loyally serves the king of Doma in the East, just as he served the king's father before him. His courtly manners and love of old customs are yoked to a certain discomfort when it comes to modern machines and the fairer sex. Through the cruel machinations of Kefka, the Gestahlian Empire's court mage, he suffers the loss of his liege, and his beloved wife and son. Alone, he storms his enemies in a furyㅡand so it is that he encounters Sabin and comes to lend his strength to the Returners."
- 4★ - No. 0102: "A great warrior spoken of in another world, where he played a role in the great conflict between humankind and espers. He is a samurai, living a life of honor and bowing only to the ancient traditions of his culture. Through the cruel machinations of Kefka, the Gestahlian Empire's court mage, he lost both family and kingdom, which led him to join the rebel forces of the Returners, though even this new alliance cannot ease the regret he bears for failing to protect his family and his king. This darkness in his heart allows him to be plagued by demons, but with the aid of real friends he finally comes to terms with the past, becoming a true warrior at last."
