Kon the Knight (jami or jahmi in original translations) is a white, muscled horse covered in scales. He is a member of the Order of Zugzwang.


Kon, along with Slon the Rook show up in the Ancient Ruins to defeat Pankraz. They are easily defeated, but succeed when Ladja blackmails him with the threat of killing his son.

Years later, Kon orchestrates the kidnapping of the Hero's wife with the help of Chancellor Jeeves of Gotha. Located at his hideout in Knightmare Tower, the full grown hero shows up to rescue his wife. While his pawns fail to vanquish the Hero, Kon is fully confident in his own abilities, mainly because he has a shield that makes him nearly invincible. Indeed, Kon has the upper hand in the first part of their battle as the Hero is barely able to inflict any damage onto him. However, in the midst of his gloating, the Hero's wife unexpectedly emits a light that takes down the barrier, making him vulnerable.

Upon his defeat, Kon is baffled by what the Hero's wife managed to do to him and what it entails. In the originals, Kon will reveal to the Hero's wife that she is a descendant of the original legendary hero and, with his dying breath, turn her and the Hero to stone. In the remakes, Kon will instead call out to Bishop Ladja before dying. Ladja will then show up and reveal the Hero's wife her bloodline before turning the two into stone.


In the Super Famicom version, Kon is the one who cursed The Hero and his wife to be trapped in stone after his defeat. The Sony PlayStation 2 & Nintendo DS Version have Ladja showing up to do the deed.
