The Wings of Darkness Darkwing (闇の翼 ダークウイング Yami no Tsubasa Dāku Uingu) is the Contract Monster of Kamen Rider Knight.


Kamen Rider Ryuki

Darkwing drawn by the Kanzaki siblings.

Darkwing, along with every other Mirror Monster was created by Yui's and Shiro's pictures during their childhood.

It is shown that Darkwing was initially used in one of Shiro's initial experiments and is assumed to be the Mirror Monster responsible for Eri going into a coma. Multiple times throughout the series, Darkwing acted as though it was targeting Eri. Each time Ren shooed it away. Most of the time, however, it was simply there to assist Ren in battle. Followed by Knight's transformation into Survive Mode, Darkwing transformed into Darkraider.

It is unknown what happened to Darkwing but considering that the Mirror World was erased after the final Time Vent, it can be assumed that the same was done to it as well.

It is notable for being one of the Contract Monsters that can be summoned without using an Advent, just like Dragreder.

Darkwing appears as Knight's Contract Monster summoned by Advent Card with its AP value is 4000. It resembles a mechanical vampire bat. It is shown that Darkwing was initially used in one of Shiro's initial experiments and is assumed to be the Mirror Monster responsible for Eri going into a coma. Multiple times throughout the series, Darkwing acted as though it was targeting Eri. Each time Ren shooed it away by punching the mirror its in. Despite this however, for most of the time, it was there simply to assist Ren in battle.

Whenever Darkwing was summoned, it will support Knight for aerial combat by grabbing into his back as it acted as the Rider's wing and brings Kamen Rider Knight's Winglancer to him when a Sword Vent Card is activated. From its mouth, the Dark Bill (ダークビル Dāku Biru), Darkwing can unleash a painful ultrasonic screech whenever the Nasty Vent Card scanned.

Roles in Advent Cards attacks
  • Sword Vent: Darkwing's tail becomes the Winglancer (ウイングランサー Uingu Ransā).
  • Guard Vent: Darkwing attaches to Knight's back and becomes the Wingwall (ウイングウォール Uingu Uōru) cape-like shield.
  • Nasty Vent: Darkwing performed the Sonicbreaker (ソニックブレイカー Sonikku Burekā), an attack involved by unleashing a painful ultrasonic screech.
  • Final Vent: Knight and Darkwing perform Hishozan (飛翔斬 Hishōzan). Darkwing lands on its master's back to form a cape as he leaps into the air, wrapping himself with the cloak as they descend in the form of a drill using Winglancer as the tip to impale the opponent.

Darkraider Monster Mode




  • Height: 90 cm
  • Weight: 100 kg
  • Length: 130 cm
  • Wingspan: 390 cm
  • Maximum flight speed: 950 km per hour

With Ren's gain of a Survive Card, it allowed Knight access to Survive Form and hence, allowed Darkwing to evolve into Wings of Gales Darkraider (疾風の翼 ダークレイダー Shippū no Tsubasa Dākureidā), which is a much more powerful bat, with its AP upgraded to 6000. This equipped Darkraider with wind turbines under his wings that could blow other Riders away.

Roles in Advent Cards attacks
  • Blust Vent: Darkraider executes Dark Tornado (ダークトルネード Dāku Torunēdo). Darkraider launches two tornadoes from a turbine each from its wings to blow away an opponent.

Bike Mode

After Knight Survive used the Final Vent Card, Darkraider transforms into transform into Bike Mode (バイクモード Baiku Mōdo), with Knight Survive riding it. In this form, Darkraider is a Honda Shadow bike with bat motif designs.

Roles in Advent Cards attacks
  • Final Vent: Performs Shippudan (疾風断 Shippūdan). As Darkraider assumes it's motorcycle form, Knight Survive rides Darkraider as it paralyzes the monster with a laser attack and then turns into a missile to run through their opponent.


Through the use of certain Advent Cards, parts of Darkwing's body can be used by Knight as weapons or other equipment.

  • Winglancer (ウイングランサー Uingu Ransā): A lance derived from Darkwing's tail
  • The remainder of Darkwing's body can be mounted on Knight's back, where its wings become a cape. This can be done by using either Knight's Guard Vent card or his Final Vent card (However, Ren is often seen transforming into Knight with the cape already equipped). When using the Guard Vent card, the wings are in their original form and close around Knight to form the Wingwall (ウイングウォール Uingu Uōru) in order to protect him from attacks. When using the Final Vent card, the wings are in their cape form for use in Knight's Flyinglancer Rider Kick.
