The Kivat-bat the 3rd from the World of Kiva is the third generation of the Kivat-bat Family. He formed a partnership with Wataru to give him the power of Kiva, attaching to the Kivat Belt to allow his human partner to transform and use other abilities through the Fuestles.

Kivat is a solid character with a dry wit, sometimes having a bitter attitude. Deep down though, Kivat is kind, friendly and caring. This is shown as he cares deeply about his partner Wataru, forming a partnership with him since infancy and giving tips during battle against others. He likes Megumi Aso because she reminds him of Amedeo Modigliani's masterpieces, particularly the man's works of long-necked women. He often gets annoyed by things such as the Taro's constant interruptions during the openings of Kamen Rider Den-O & Kiva: Climax Deka or the certain actions of Tatsulot. Despite being annoyed at Tatsulot, Kivat seems to actually see him as a friend whom he often chats or bickers with.

Powers and Abilities

As a Kivat, he possesses Demon Imperial Powers like the Active Force (アクティブフォース Akutibu Fōsu) which he can infuse into others by biting with his Active Fangs (アクティブファング Akutibu Fangu) which summons the Kivat Belt where he is then placed upon for the transformation into Kiva. He is also able to blow on Fuestles to summon items or other things like Castle Doran. His eye color changes depending on what form Kiva is in. While seemingly unable to add nearly as much Demonic Power as his father can (although this is probably because of the Katena Chains that are used due to Wataru's half Fangire nature rather than Kivat himself), Kivat-bat the 3rd can borrow the strength of others to add more power onto Wataru to the point where he may even surpass Dark Kiva.

Aside from being Kiva's power source, Kivat possesses a technique called Kivat Cutter (キバットカッター Kibatto Kattā) with his Lucifer Gold adorned Kivat Wings (キバットウイング Kibatto Uingu) which can cut through opponents.
