Lightning Kahn (Japanese: ブラッディカイザー, Buraddi Kaizaa, Bloody Kaiser) is a Power-Type Zero System B-Daman owned by Enjyu and the younger "brother" of Cobalt Blade. It is also the successor to the DHB System B-Daman, Cobalt Geist and Shred Kaiser. It was first released in Japan in October 2003, for 680円.

IBA Body

Lightning Kahn uses a black IBA Body with purple Zero Shoulders and Zero Feet.

Head Armor and Visor: Kahn Visor

The Kahn Visor consists of a dark orange visor complimenting a Helmet with three prominent protrusions, each one having a rubber fin on the back.

Shoulder Armor

Each piece of Shoulder Armor has a rubber wing to allow the user to hold the B-Daman better. On the front of the left shoulder is an angry-eye with a blue iris and red sclera, with three scratch marks. Printed on the other Shoulder, but in the Japanese version, is "Shadow", which so happens to be the Shadow Alliance's name in the Japanese version of the anime and manga.

NOTE: For Hasbro's release of this B-Daman, they used a softer rubber.

Foot Armor: Kahn Foot

The Kahn Foot pieces each feature a single triangular claw for forward stability.

Power Buckle

The purpose of this component is to squeeze in the Hold Parts from the sides, increasing the B-Daman's power, similar in concept to Helio Breaker's Power Arms.


The irremovable Core is black with red Basic Hold Parts and Basic Trigger.

Power Buckle breakage issue

The Power Buckle is brittle and can be broken with repetitive use or strained easily with force.

Battle B-Daman

When Enjyu joined the Shadow Alliance, Ababa took him to Armada's workshop, where he claimed Cobalt Kahn, which he renamed Lightning Kahn. When all this was revealed in the anime, Enjyu says that he had installed several upgrades to Lightning Kahn, making it practically unbeatable.


  • "Kahn" may be a variation of Khan, as in Genghis Khan, the legendary Mongolian emperor known for his military accomplishments and use of innovative equipment in his time.
  • Prior to becoming Lightning Kahn, Cobalt Kahn was essentially a palette-swap of Cobalt Blade, but it was always equipped with the Power Buckle since its creation by Armada.
  • Cobalt Kahn being stolen and upgraded into Lightning Kahn is a reference to when Cobalt Geist was taken and upgraded into Shred Kaiser by Enjyu in the manga.
