|This article is about a/an race of characters in Kamen Rider Kiva.|
The Kivats (キバット, Kibatto) are a race of bat-like creatures in Kamen Rider Kiva and one of the thirteen Demon Races. The Kivats possess Demon Imperial Powers (魔皇力 Maōryoku?) which they can instill into other lifeforms usually through their Active Fangs (アクティブファング Akutibu Fangu?) or other means. Some of them possess additional powers that is different amongst them. They also possess personas on their faces that are tradition in their families.
Through research and studying, artificial Kivats have been produced such as the Rey Kivat and Arc Kivat. Unlike real Kivats, these mechanical replicas do not transmit demon power through their fangs, only needing to be placed onto the belts to start transformations.
