The unused special attack

  • Kain's Cadaverous Lasceration attack strongly resembles the Berserk Dark Gift seen in Blood Omen 2 .
  • At least one of the special attacks was discarded and unused in the final game. Appearaing in artwork by Daniel Cabuco, the attack seems to be a mid-air slam similar to the final Empyreal Rending
