This article is about a/an episode in Kamen Rider Kiva.

Heroic: Perfect Hunter (英雄・パーフェクトハンター Eiyū: Pāfekuto Hantā) is the third episode of Kamen Rider Kiva. This episode marks the first appearance of Keisuke Nago.


Wataru is approached by a lawyer who forces accusations against his father, forcing him to find one good thing Otoya did in the past to resolve matters.


In 1986, Yuri finds Otoya while he is flirting with a young lady, intent to get her weapon back from him. Suddenly, the Moth Fangire attacks Otoya until Yuri regained her weapon, forcing the Fangire to retreat. After reporting to Shima at the Café mald'amour, Yuri is told to investigate Otoya in order to see if he is an ideal candidate to join the Fangire Hunters. Following him, Yuri sees Otoya ruin the lives of two men, leaving them bankrupt.

In 2008, after telling Shima of Kiva and reminded that he could be a bigger threat to humans than the Fangire themselves, Megumi prefers to handle Kiva herself. Later, Wataru gives Akira Kido a present for giving him the table. It is then that Wataru formally introduces himself, with Kido learning that he is the son of Otoya. Later, a female lawyer named Aya Natsukawa arrives at Wataru's home with a list of the various people that Otoya had victimized with his antics. Confused about this revelation, Wataru meets the two men whose lives Otoya had ruined, feeling devastated by the acts his father caused with Natsukawa telling him that the victims will forgive Otoya if Wataru does a good deed for them each. It is then that a German criminal takes Shizuka hostage that Wataru meets the "ally of justice" Keisuke Nago, an elite member of the Fangire Hunters. When he ponders the new information he obtained, Wataru senses the Bloody Rose's vibrations, arriving to a baseball field to find Megumi struggling against the Moth Fangire. Though he easily overpowers the Moth Fangire, Kiva is distracted by the thoughts about his father, with the Moth Fangire managing to escape him. By nightfall, Nago arrives to check on Megumi, realizing that Kiva has returned. Upon learning this new information, Nago makes it his goal to kill Kiva.
