With Final Fantasy IV being one of the most respected titles in the series, Kain Highwind has made more than a dozen appearances across compilations, anthologies, and other works from Square Enix. The following is a list of Kain's many appearances.

Series appearancesEdit

Final Fantasy XIVEdit

XIV

WindUpKainFFXIV

The Wind-up Kain minion can only be obtained by registering a Collectors Edition of the expansion pack Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a DarklordEdit

FFCCMLaaD

Ffcc-mlaad monster kain

Kain's dark side appears as one of the monsters that can be summoned by Mira after being purchased as downloadable content. He takes on his appearance from The After Years. Kain is a melee summon with somewhat low attack; however, with his fast speed and cost of one slot on a tower floor, investing some NP to summon and max out the levels of an army of Kains makes for a very effective melee force.

Final Fantasy Legends IIEdit

Kain appears as a wind-elemental God-type summon.

Dissidia 012 Final FantasyEdit

Dissidia012

Kain (Dissidia 012)

Kain appears as a playable character. He is officially on the side of Cosmos, but works with Golbez to help the Warriors of Cosmos survive to the next cycle of war by attacking and defeating them before the Manikins do, as they will not be revived if beaten by the manikins. Kain defeats Bartz, Firion, and Zidane, and he is implied to beat most of the other original Warriors of Cosmos, before Tifa, whom he rescues from an encounter with Ultimecia, talks him into returning to the survivors and admitting what he's done. At this time, Kain accompanies them to the Lands of Discord, and the group sacrifices themselves to seal the portal the manikins are emerging from.

Kain's first alternate outfit, Noir Dragoon, is based on Dark Kain, giving him dark blue and red armor, while his second alternate outfit, Light Seeker, is his "Hooded Man" attire, a blue and white robe with a brown cape.

Tetsuya Nomura stated prior to the announcement of Dissidia 012 that Kain was considered as a candidate to appear in the original Dissidia, either as a secret character or the antagonist representing Final Fantasy IV. He was ultimately excluded, but Tetsuya Nomura has said he personally wanted Kain in the game and that Kain would be in a sequel to the game if one were made.[1]

Kain ATB
Cecil cares for this commander of the Baron Dragoons, despite his many deceits.
—Description

Kain is an exclusive character only available from the Premium Character Shop as a random downloadable content, he uses the Blaze Jump during battle.

Final Fantasy Record KeeperEdit

FFRK

FFRK Kain Sprite
Kain is the gifted captain of an elite airship squad, the Baron's Dragoons. He is also Cecil's friend and rival--a rivalry that turns real when Golbez manipulates Kain to stand against his old companions.
—Official description.

Kain is a standard character, also appearing as an early boss. He is automatically recruited as the First Time Reward for completing Mist Cave on the Classic difficulty track. He has also appeared in the Challenge Events The Burning Blade and A Summoner Grown, although many players may have received a Greater Growth Egg in his place. The only advantage to his recruitment in these events was a much earlier acquisition of his Memory Crystal.

Assessment

Kain is an excellent starting warrior with good HP, Attack, and Defense stats throughout his progression, with the added bonus of a high Speed stat. This allows him to strike most foes before they can strike back. Being a Dragoon gives him the option of range. Although spears are his preferred arms, Kain can also wield swords to deal just as much damage to an enemy party. Outside of his Realm, however, he faces tough competition from Fang, who is equally as skilled.
