The Fangire Race are a race of vampire-like monsters in the Kamen Rider series Kamen Rider Kiva. They are stained glass-based vampires who feed off of the Life Energy of humans to survive. By using glass shard-like Life-Sucking Fangs (吸命牙 Kyūmeiga?) to drain the Life Energy to maintain their souls, members of the Fangire Race can assume human forms to hide within everyday society to feed in secret, revealing their forms when their skin takes a uniquely variant stained glass pattern.

When a human's Life Energy is stolen by their Fangs, the victim becomes transparent like glass; and in some cases the body will shatter when touched. Each Fangire belongs to a specific class based on the animal form it takes, and each Fangire has a true name. A Fangire can live up to three times longer than a human, barring being killed. Upon a natural death, the monster's physical body shatters like glass and collapses in a heap.

The members of the Fangire Race destroyed by Kiva have their bodies destroyed, with their souls sealed within the Castle Doran's body before they can escape and eventually reform into a new body or clump with other Fangires' souls to form a giant aura monster called a Sabbat (サバト Sabato?). Ixa, Kiva in Emperor Form, Saga, and Dark Kiva are able to destroy both body and soul. The Fangire Race is most prosperous of the 13 Demon Races, while also playing a role in the near-extermination of the Wolfen, Merman, and Franken races.

World of Kiva

The Fangire Race also exist in the A.R. World of Kiva. Similar to the originals, are vampiric creatures that resemble stained glass, originally feeding off of the Life Energy of humans until they are commanded by their king to coexist with them. However, some of these Fangires are unable to follow this law due to their instincts. Each Fangire belongs to a specific class based on the animal form it takes. Several Fangires also appear in the first episode when Natsumi is trapped within the changing dimensions. They include the Shark, Moose, Horsefly, Rat, Mantis, and Seamoon Fangire. The Mantis Fangire later appears fighting the Beetle Fangire.


As one of the races of the Nine Worlds, the Fangire are part of the Dai-Shocker alliance, a coalition of all villain organizations fought by the Kamen Riders, who have ambitions to conquer the multiverse.

The Rat, Sungazer, and Bat Fangire, were part of the Dai-Shocker army that was fought and wiped out by a gathering of 25 Kamen Riders in the World of Decade after Dai-Shocker started their invasion of the worlds.

The Seamoon Fangire and Mantis Fangire accompanied Apollo Geist in the World of Black RX. They were destroyed by Decade using Agito's Rider Kick and Faiz Axel's power respectively.

The Sungazer Fangire was a member of the Dai-Shocker remnant, Super Shocker, that appeared in the World of the Rider War.

List of Fangires

Checkmate Four

The Checkmate Four are the four most powerful members of the Fangire race, each bearing a tattoo of the chess piece they are named after. These four Fangires receive the titles of Rook, Bishop the keeper of Fangire laws, Queen, and King, the rulers of Fangires. In 1986, the Checkmate Four were based in Castle Doran. By 2008, only Bishop and Rook remained as they recruit a new Queen and King.
