General Thoughts

Note: Now available at 5 stars!

Kain is one of the main characters in FF4. He is best known for his jump attacks. He is a raw physical attacker and can only learn white magic.

He has a very special jump attack.  The first turn, he jumps and becomes untargetable and attacks at the end of turn 1. At later levels, he gets a boost call High Jump, which increases his jump attacks by 100%. It is an incredibly helpful modifier as Kain will deal a lot more damage and take less damage since he can’t be targeted. At 5 stars, he learns dragon dive, a stronger attack than high jump. Coupled with the spear damage passive bonus(+20% damage) and power surge (+40% damage), his single target attacks is devastating.

He also does very well against dragons and is a great unit to have when fighting the snow dragon. His Hp/Mp drain skill is also relatively useful if you ever run out of mp in tough fights. His limit burst is a strong single target attack.

His weapon selection is limited at 4 but he can wear shields and various armors. The biggest downside to him is that he cannot be a 5 star yet. He also can’t use green or black magic.

Verdict: Use him as an attacker unless you can get the top tier units like Chizuru, WoL, CoD and Bartz.
