|This article is about a/an rider in Kamen Rider Gaim.|
Kamen Rider Bujin Kiva (仮面ライダー武神キバ Kamen Raidā Bujin Kiba) is one of the Bujin Riders of the Gaim and Sengoku Movie Battle portions of the Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Gaim & Wizard: The Fateful Sengoku Movie Battle. Serving under his lord as Bujin Rider of the Kiva Army.
During the Sengoku Rider War, his faction was at war with Bujin Fourze's faction. Along with the rest of the fourteen Bujin Riders, Bujin Kiva was defeated by Kamen Rider Bujin Gaim and consumed by the Nepenthes Inhumanoid.
When Wizard and Gaim were consumed by the God Tree, which Bujin Gaim had now infused himself on top of, they were met by the fourteen Bujin Riders whose final act was to infuse them with their powers via their Rider Kicks, with Bujin Kiva providing his Darkness Moon Break, allowing Wizard and Gaim to escape and destroy Bujin Gaim with their combined powers.

Kiva Form (キバフォーム Kiba Fōmu) is Kiva's default form, accessed through a bite from Kivat, who status determines Kiva's ability in a battle. He is able to see in the dark with his visor called the Omnilens (オムニレンズ Omunirenzu). In this form, Kiva can use any of the Fuestles, with the Wake Up Fuestle to open up the Catena Chains on his right leg known as the Hell's Gate (ヘルズゲート Heruzu Gēto) made of Lucifer Metal (ルシファーメタル Rushifā Metaru) so Kiva can use his Darkness Moon Break (ダークネスムーンブレイク Dākunesu Mūn Bureiku) attack. The kick has an impact of 30,000 kg., enough to leave a crater in the shape of a bat's wings (Kiva's insignia) on any surface upon contact; the glass body of a Fangire shatters almost instantly.
Kiva can also perform a stronger variation of the Darkness Moon Break when engulfed in Castle Doran's fire. When the Darkness Moon Break is performed, day turns into night and a crescent moon appears in the sky.
Behind the scenes
The first fourteen Bujin Riders were voiced by Tatsuya Takagi (高木 達也 Takagi Tatsuya) and Yūma Uchida (内田 雄馬 Uchida Yūma); which one voiced Kiva is unclear. Bujin Kiva was portrayed by an unidentified suit actor.
