Kamen Rider Kiva (仮面ライダーキバ Kamen Raidā Kiba?) is the primary protagonist and eponymous character of the 2008 Kamen Rider Series, Kamen Rider Kiva. Kiva is a title passed down through generations in the Royal Fangire family from parent to child. It may refer to any the following characters.




Novel

In the novel reimagination of the TV series, Kiva is Wataru's Fangire form. With that, Kivat, Basshaa and Dogga do not exist in this story. Meanwhile, Jiro/Garulu, who is in turn, a Fangire Hunter. And Nago never befriends Wataru, who ends up as the final villain. He died after his Rider Kick collides with Wataru's kick.

Etymology

"Kiva" is an abbreviation for "KING OF VAMPIRE", which plays in Kiva's connections to the Fangire King. The Japanese name also comes from a reading for the word "fang" ( kiba?).

Forms

Kiva has multiple forms that provide him with different weapons and abilities. Kiva's motif is that of a vampire, with his final attacks inherited from Maya. However, unlike his predecessor, Wataru's nature as a human-fangire hybrid leaves him unable to fully utilize Kiva's full power with the Catena (カテナ Katena?) Chains. Additionally, Tatsulot and Zanbat serve as restraints to keep the power of Kiva from taking complete control of Wataru.

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.

The Garulu Form is capable of unleashing a blast of sound, has increased speed and cunning due to the form's animalistic ferocity and is able to perform the Garulu Howling Slash (ガルル・ハウリングスラッシュ Garuru Hauringu Surasshu?).

While in this state, Kiva loses most of his strength and agility, but gains a mastery of long range combat and is able to analyze an opponent's weak point to target with accurate marksmanship. Basshaa Form can also manipulate water, able to create rain as well as a pool of water necessary to perform the Basshaa Aqua Tornado (バッシャー・アクアトルネード Basshā Akua Torunēdo?).

When it is performed, day turns to night and a half moon forms in the sky, as it references the change ebb and flow of the tides during its phase.

Its motif is that of the Gill-man (半魚人 Hangyojin?).

In this form, Kiva loses most of his speed but gains unbelievable strength, able to overpower a Fangire easily. Dogga Form is able to manipulate electricity, using it as part of his finisher, the Dogga Thunder Slap (ドッガ・サンダースラップ?). The Dogga Hammer can see through the invisibility of Fangires, thanks to the True Eye gaffed into the warhammer.

When it is performed, day turns to night while a hazy moon and thunderbolt form in the sky, the latter referencing its motif of "Frankenstein's monster" (フランケンシュタインの人造人間 Furankenshutain no jinzō ningen?) and how it was brought to life.

In this form, Kiva can use all three Arms Monster weapons at once and the Darkness Moon Break. However, due to the danger it presents to Kiva and the Arms Monsters, Kiva can only assume this form for five minutes before its power becomes lethal to him.

Overused
Emperor Form
Sp0rnkAdded by Sp0rnk
  • Rider height: 210 cm.
  • Rider weight: 100 kg.
  • Ability perimeters
    • Punching power: 18 tons
    • Normal kicking power: 32 tons
      • Emperor Moon Break 150 tons
    • Maximum jump height: 180 meters
    • Maximum running speed: 100 meters per 3.0 seconds

Emperor Form (エンペラーフォーム Enperā Fōmu?) is the true form of Kiva, referred to as the Golden Kiva (黄金のキバ Ōgon no Kiba?) and the most powerful form at Wataru's disposal. The fifth form accessed, the first emergence of Emperor Form comes about from the reaction to Wataru's rage from the harm coming to Mio, his girlfriend, which summoned the Demon Imperial Dragon Tatsulot to awaken the form. By pulling the switch on Tatsulot's head, Wataru can activate Tatsulot's Imperial Slot (インペリアルスロット Inperiaru Surotto?) and activate one of several "Fever" finishing attacks through a roulette system. With this form, Kiva can destroy both the body and the soul of a Fangire.

Because of this Wataru has gradually abandoned using his other forms in favor of Emperor Form. Emperor Form initially appeared in promotions for Kamen Rider Kiva: King of the Castle in the Demon World at the Tokyo Toy Show 2008.

On the album SUPERNOVA by TETRA-FANG, Emperor Form is referred to as "Empire form."

Emperor Form's ending theme is entitled "Supernova".

Kiva Emperor Fangire Form
Fangire Emperor Form

When Wataru's Fangire blood is awakened by the Swallowtail Fangire he temporarily became a Fangire version of Emperor Form gaining the Fangire's signature stained glass appearance and becoming a berserker attacking friend or foe. This caused Wataru to go into isolation until encouraged to fight again.

DoGaki
DoGaBaKi Emperor Form
LeonardokimAdded by Leonardokim

DoGaBaKi Emperor Form (ドガバキエンペラーフォーム Dogabaki Enperā Fōmu?) is actually a true final form seen the Adventure Battle DVD, when Kiva accesses Emperor Form while in DoGaBaKi Form. In this form, Kiva can use all three Arms Monster weapons and execute the DoGaBaKi Emperor Break.



Had Style Before Wizard
Flight Style
Sp0rnkAdded by Sp0rnk
  • Height: 1.8 meters
  • Wing span: 3.8 meters
  • Weight: 100 kg.
  • Ability perimeters
  • Top flight speed: Mach 3.4
    • Punching power: 10 tons
    • Kicking power: 18 tons
    • Maximum jump height: ∞m (Able to fly)

Resulting from infusing his own desire into the Bloody Rose, Wataru's Fangire nature is triggered as Kiva transforms from Emperor Form into Flight Style (飛翔態 Hishōtai?), a dragon-like form called the Emperor Bat (エンペラーバット Enperā Batto?) which is similar to the Fangires' ability to become Sabbats.

In Kamen Rider Kiva: King of the Castle in the Demon World, Arc uses his Legendorga baptism to turn Wataru from a Human/Fangire hybrid into a full Legendorga by forcing him to assume the form in an attempt to kill his father, Otoya Kurenai, though his father managed to bring him back with Wataru reverts back to his Human/Fangire hybrid. Wataru later re-accesses Flight Style to defeat the giant Rider. Ironically, the Legendorga version of Flight Style has a darker color scheme as it's golden accent turns brown and the red color on his wing turns from red into maroon.

Flight Style uses the blades on his wings called the Sonic Claws (ソニッククロー Sonikku Kurō?) to perform the Demon Pliers (デモンプライヤー Demon Puraiyā?) attack and breathes the Hell's Flame (ヘルズフレイム Heruzu Fureimu?) from his Big Jaw (ビッグジョー Biggu Jō?). These abilities come into play for its finishing attack, the Bloody Strike (ブラッディストライク Buraddi Sutoraiku?).

Kiva Fangire Form
Kiva's Fangire Form
Muhammad AmirAdded by Muhammad Amir

In Kamen Rider Kiva (novel), Kamen Rider Kiva's Kiva form is Wataru's Bat Fangire form and Kivat-bat the 3rd never exists. In addition, Wataru's Fangire form looks identical to his Rider Form, but only lacks the Kivat belt and his finisher is the Fangire Kick, which emits a similar attack to the Darkness Moon Break.

KRD-KivaArrow
Kiva Arrow

Kamen Rider Decade's Final Form Ride allows Kiva to change into the Kiva Arrow (キバアロー Kiba Arō?). Once the Final Attack Ride Card is in, the bow can be pulled back, getting the Hell's Gate to open up for the Decade Fang attack.

Rider Cards

Several Rider Cards allow Tsukasa Kadoya/Kamen Rider Decade to access the power of Kiva.

  • Form Ride Card
    • Kiva Garulu: Decade assumes Kiva's Garulu Form. Unlike Kiva himself, who is left-handed in this form, Tsukasa prefers his right hand.
    • Kiva Basshaa: Decade assumes Kiva's Basshaa Form.
    • Kiva Dogga: Decade assumes Kiva's Dogga Form.
  • Final Kamen Ride Card: When Kamen Rider Decade is in his Complete Form, he uses the K-Touch to summon the Final Forms of the Nine Heisei Riders. After he presses the Rider's symbol, a card of that Rider's Final Form appears in a set of nine on Kamen Rider Decade's chest. The Kiva Emperor card summons Kamen Rider Kiva Emperor Form, armed with the Zanvat Sword. Using the Kiva Final AttackRide card allows Decade to execute a Final Zanvat Slash-style attack alongside Kiva Emperor Form.
  • Final Form Ride Cards: The Kiva Arrow card transforms Kiva into a large Kivat-like bow with an arrow resembling Kiva's sealed Hell's Gate leg.
  • Final Attack Ride Card: With the Kiva Arrow, Decade/Diend performs the Decade/Diend Fang which fires the arrow, unfolding to hit the target in similarly to Kiva's Darkness Moon Break kick. Decade holds the arrow vertically while Diend holds it like a crossbow.
    • In All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker, when Tsukasa "loans" the Kiva Arrow to Momotaros, the attack is called Momo Fang, labeled by Momotaros as "Our Finishing Attack, Final Attack Version" (俺たちの必殺技・ファイナルアタックバージョン Oretachi no Hissatsu Waza: Fainaru Atakku Bājon?). Momotaros held the arrow vertically like Decade.
