Bang (バン, Ban) is a minor character in Suikoden IV. Bang is a lottery booth operator who suffers from a rather unfortunate cat allergy.


I was right to move to this ship, after all. The itchiness in my nose is gone, too.

—  Bang

Bang was an old man who worked at the lottery booth in the Nay-Kobold Settlement on Nay Island, despite having a cat allergy. He was a compassionate person, but that only made more surprising the fact that he sometimes fixed his lottery by filling the drawing machine with only the least valuable white balls.

Due to his allergies, he found working in the Nay-Kobold Settlement untenable and so jumped at the chance to join the crew of the Headquarters Ship and operate his lottery there. His cold from allergies soon cleared up, although he worried that Jeane would give herself a cold due to her attire.

Following the Island Liberation War, he would return to Nay Island and reopen his lottery booth but this time in the human village on the island.



Keen You have done well by coming here. In this room, you may confess what is in your heart and accept proper judgement.
Bang Yeah, yeah...okay, okay...
Keen Would you secretly inform me about anyone onboard this ship who you think is causing problems?
Bang Hmm? Well...I'm not really keen about Nay-Kobolds. My nose just gets really itchy when I breathe in their fur...I have nothing against them, but...
Keen Then, would you tell me what you think of the Hero?
Bang Oh...he's a funny person. He stares intently at the ball coming out when he plays the lottery. His eyes are just so serious.
Keen Finally, quietly confess the things you wish to atone for, or all the things that you are thankful for.
Bang Every so often, there are times when I only have white balls in there for the lottery. Well, it won't be a problem as long as no one finds out, right?
Bang Ooh...I did it!! Well, later...
Bang Whoa!! Hey...what did you do that for?!


After obtaining the Headquarters Ship, speak with Bang at the lottery stall at the Nay-Kobold Settlement on Nay Island.
