The Fangire Race are a race of vampires in the Kamen Rider series Kamen Rider Kiva. They are vampires who feed off of the Life Energy  to survive. By using glass shard-like Life-Sucking Fangs to maintain their souls to hide within everyday society to feed in secret, revealing their forms when their skin takes a uniquely variant stained glass pattern. When a Life Energy is stolen, the victim becomes transparent and  belong to a specific class based on the animal form it takes, A Fangire can live up to three times longer than a human. The monster's physical body shatters and collapses in a heap. The members of the Fangire Race destroyed by Kiva have their souls sealed in the Castle Doran's body before they can reform into a new bodyto form a monster called a Sabbat to destroy both body and soul. The Fangire Race is most prosperous of the 13 Demon Races, playing a role in the near-extermination of the Wolfen, Merman, and Franken races.

The Fangire Race are vampirics that originally feed off of the Life Energy until they are commanded to coexist with them. However, some of these Fangires are unable to follow their instincts. Each Fangire belongs to animal form it takes. Several Fangires also appear when Natsumi is trapped. 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 villain organizations fought by the Kamen Riders to conquer the multiverse. The Rat, Sungazer, and Bat Fangire, were part of the Dai-Shocker army that was fought  by a gathering of 25 Kamen Riders after Dai-Shocker started their invasion of the worlds.

Checkmate Four

The Checkmate Four are the four most powerful members of the Fangire race,  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.
