Dark Kain is an enemy in Final Fantasy IV Advance and Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection. He is fought in Kain's Trial at the Lunar Ruins. He is only present in the battle for a couple turns before he uses Jump to transform into Lunar Bahamut.

Battle[edit | edit source]
Dark Kain cannot be killed by normal means, but a Tornado from Abel's Lance can do the trick, although this triggers a glitch where the player does not receive the Grimoire LB for defeating Lunar Bahamut, thus preventing them from accessing Kain's Trial on subsequent trips through the ruins (completing a trial earns the player a summon Grimoire for the boss defeated and the trial cannot be entered again until that Grimoire is used). This, however, was fixed in the European Game Boy Advance version as well as in all PSP versions, whereby the player does receive the Grimoire LB for defeating Dark Kain before he transforms into Lunar Bahamut.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
Cain was the brother of Abel in the Tanakh/Old Testament book of Genesis. Cain became the first murderer by killing his brother out of jealousy stemming from God choosing Abel's gift over that of Cain.
