Cain is a major villain of the "Mutant Warriors" arc in the 2001 anime Cyborg 009: The Cyborg Soldier. He and his friends were sent by Dr. Gamo Whisky to eliminate the 00 cyborg team and retrieve Gamo's son Ivan, who is among the 00 cyborgs.

He is a loose analogue to The Commander from the manga's Immigration arc.


Cain is a tall young man with black hair in a bob cut, having a bright red streak in it. It covers his right eye, while his left usually has a dark sunglasses lens in it. Without it, his eyes are bright blue. He wears a dark black jumpsuit with purple markings, covered by a yellow poncho, and a belt.



Cain and his friends Rina, Mii, Phil, and Nichol came from a desolate future where Black Ghost conquered the Earth and left it a ruin. The survivors of Black Ghost's wars developed psychic powers as a main defense. Cain's group traveled to the past with the original goal of preventing their future from becoming the living hell they've grown up knowing, but along the way they got separated from Nichol. The time-traveling also depleted their physical energy to the point of premature aging.

Seeking help for their condition, they turned to Dr. Gamo Whisky, a former Black Ghost scientist.



  • Cain is named after the Biblical figure Cain, who murdered his brother Abel out of jealousy after God blessed Abel instead of him. Cain's relationship with his former friend Nicholas echoes this, with Cain assassinating Nicholas with his psychic powers in order to take his place as leader of the Mutant Warriors.
  • Rather than being based off the better-known design of the Commander, who wore a half-mask to conceal the right side of his face, Cain's design was modeled from the Commander's second and final appearance in the manga (The People Drifting Between Space and Time), where he had gotten rid of the half-mask and instead had his long fringe covering his right eye.
  • An unrelated, entirely different Cain is featured in Cyborg 009 vs. Devilman.
