Kahn is a non-playable character in Breath of Fire IV. Kahn is a comic relief of the game, believing he is the strongest warrior yet constantly being beaten by Ryu and his party. Ryu and company first encounter him in his capacity as Marlok's bodyguard, however, after they defeat him, he becomes a recurring antagonist, showing up periodically throughout the game in effort to prove that he's the superior combatant. He eventually becomes a master that the player characters can train under.

Kahn first appears as bodyguard in the city of Synesta to the greedy merchant Marlok. In order to get information of Elina's whereabouts the party defeats Kahn in battle, after which Marlok congratulates the group and invites them inside.

In order to regain his pride as a warrior, Kahn leaves to train with Una from the Woren. After the group's travels bring them to Village of Worent, they stumble upon Kahn, whom attacks the party. After they once again defeat him once again, Una yells at the party for picking on her pupil. She further wounds Kahn's pride by stating that he is not as strong as he thinks he is. However, on the whole Kahn's defeat only further serves to further encourage Kahn's ambitions, and the party encounters him a third time in Shikk. Although ready to battle the team once more, Ursula cuts the process short by humorously defeating him with a single shot from her gun. This doesn't serve as retribution enough however, as Kahn chases after the team by swimming after their ship and jumps on the deck.

After this defeat, he finally recognizes the team's strength. He swims ashore north of Saldine and as the party approaches him he offers himself to train the team as a Master.
