Kamen Rider Dark Kiva (仮面ライダーダークキバ Kamen Raidā Dāku Kiba), also known as in dialogue as the Kiva of Darkness (闇の木場 Yami no Kiba). Dark Kiva may refer to any of the following characters.
Beast Rider Squad
A fake Kamen Rider Dark Kiva was part of a quartet of holographic Kamen Riders recreated by Foundation X to form the Beast Rider Squad led by the revived Takeshi Asakura. Dark Kiva was defeated alongside Tiger by Kamen Rider Brave Quest Gamer Level 2 wielding the Gashacon Sword.
This Rider Ring which bears the likeness of Kamen Rider Dark Kiva is exclusive to Kamen Rider Wizard's Wizard Ring toyline. When used by a WizarDriver wearer, it would be able to summon Kamen Rider Dark Kiva.
