1986 animated movie

Kiba Daiō makes an extended cameo as a rival warlord who warns Raoh and Uighur' invading forces not to enter his territory. When Raoh's army enters, Kiba enters with his steel technique, cutting apart many of Raoh's soldiers with his blade, and even biting the head off a soldier who jumped near his head. Kiba Daioh is defeated by Raoh's Hokuto Gōshō Ha technique.

Personality and Characteristics

Kiba Daioh is a ruthless man who can't seem to comprehend there are other ways to survive in the world outside of looting and pillaging other humans for food. Kiba Daioh also seems unable to comprehend why anyone would resent him or his sons for their violent criminal ways.

Kiba has a heavy attachment to his sons and was reduced to tears upon hearing the news of Kemada's death. Kiba Daioh comforted his his grieving children over the deaths of their brothers, saying the deceased will be able to rest once their deaths are avenged. It appears Kiba Daioh and his family have a primitive religion of sorts in which those killed cannot reach Heaven until their deaths are avenged.

Despite his attachment to his sons, Kiba, like many rogues in the series, is a coward when he is at death's door. After Kenshiro overcame his steel technique, a terrified Kiba Daioh tried to convince his remaining sons to stall Kenshiro to facilitate his escape. When questioned, Kiba pathetically tried to justify himself by saying that he can create another Fang clanj if he lives, but if he dies its over. This shows while Kiba Daioh loves his sons, he ultimately loves his own life more.

Kiba daioh is a master of Kazan Kakuteigi (華山角抵戯, 'Kazan Kakuteigi' "Huashan Horn Wrestling") style. His Kazan Kogai Koho allows him to turn his body to hard steel.
