Kanden first appeared in Metroid Prime Hunters. He is one of the seven hunters in the game, which also includes Samus Aran, the main character. He was an experiement to create an ultimate soldier who could withstand many obstacles that most could not. Though since his mind was that of a mere-human's, his brain could not take the complicated combat. It transformed his mind, turning him into an unpredictable and powerful monster.
On Wi-Fi, he isn't very popular among players, having the lowest percentage out of all of them (only 6%).
