Not sharp? So sorry.
—Khan, Chapter 195: Anubis, Part 3

Main article: Anubis

Khan temporarily wields the Stand Anubis when he picks up the sword. It is a Sentient Stand that possesses Khan's mind and makes him a deadly fighter. It is unknown whether he has previous fighting experience since he is a barber, but as Anubis grows stronger with each battle, Khan is stronger than the Stand's previous wielder, Chaka.

Khan shaves Polnareff

Khan is a barber who receives a visit from Jean Pierre Polnareff to shave but is asked to put Anubis nearby before starting his work. Thinking it to be a normal sword, Khan draws it and is possessed by the stand, attacking Polnareff soon after. Because Anubis already had experience fighting Polnareff (in the earlier battle with Chaka), he was able to counter almost all of his attacks. Polnareff was saved by Jotaro Kujo, who easily overcame the possessed barber and broke the Anubis Sword in half. Khan himself was rendered unconscious.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (SFC)

Khan is one of the bosses featured in the game. In the desert town, Egypt, Khan appears as a merchant. After the group enters a pyramid and acquires Anubis' sword, Khan appears to ask the group if they would sell the sword to him. If the player agrees, they receive $50 but Khan will steal it if the player refuses.

Almost immediately after, Khan attacks the group, triggering a battle. After his defeat, Khan is taken out and the group realizes that Anubis' sword was controlling him.

Heritage for the Future (PS1/DC/Arcade)

Khan pl.GIF

Khan is the final Anubis character (the others being Chaka and Anubis Polnareff) in Heritage for the Future. He is a secret character, and can only be unlocked by completing Challenge Mode with Anubis Polnareff.

Khan is introduced in the Story Mode exactly as he is in the manga; when Polnareff visits a barber on his way to the police station, Khan becomes possessed by accidentally drawing the sword from its sheath.

He is not fought in the storyline of any of the main characters, but he retains his own short storyline. In his own story, Khan is able to kill all of the protagonists and decides to stay faithful to DIO afterward because he fears the power of The World. This differs greatly from Chaka's ending, where the Anubis Sword compels the farmer to betray DIO.
