The Kivat-Bat the 3rd from the World of Kiva is the third generation of the Kivat-Bat Family. He formed a partnership with Wataru to give him the power of Kiva, attaching to the Kivat Belt to allow his human partner to transform and use other abilities through the Fuestles. 「Second Movement ♬ Prince Kiva」 「The Biting King's Qualifications」
Kivat is a solid character with a dry wit, sometimes having a bitter attitude. Deep down though, Kivat is kind, friendly and caring. This is shown as he cares deeply about his partner Wataru, forming a partnership with him since infancy and giving tips during battle against others. He likes Megumi Aso because she reminds him of Amedeo Modigliani's masterpieces, particularly the man's works of long-necked women. He often gets annoyed by things such as the Taro's constant interruptions during the openings of Kamen Rider Den-O & Kiva: Climax Deka or the certain actions of Tatsulot. Despite being annoyed at Tatsulot, Kivat seems to actually see him as a friend whom he often chats or bickers with.
Powers and Abilities
As a Kivat, he possesses Demon Imperial Powers like the Active Force (アクティブフォース, Akutibu Fōsu) which he can infuse into others by biting with his Active Fangs (アクティブファング, Akutibu Fangu) which summons the Kivat Belt where he is then placed upon for the transformation into Kiva. He is also able to blow on Fuestles to summon items or other things like Castle Doran. His eye color changes depending on what form Kiva is in. While seemingly unable to add nearly as much Demonic Power as his father can (although this is probably because of the Katena Chains that are used due to Wataru's half Fangire nature rather than Kivat himself), Kivat-Bat the 3rd can borrow the strength of others to add more power onto Wataru to the point where he may even surpass Dark Kiva.
Aside from being Kiva's power source, Kivat possesses a secret technique called Kivat Cutter (キバットカッター, Kibatto Kattā) with his Lucifer Gold adorned Kivat Wings (キバットウイング, Kibatto Uingu) which can cut through opponents.
Kivat-Bat the 3rd is composed of the following parts:
- Demon Imperial Stone (魔皇石, Maōseki) - A green stone on his forehead. It is a family jewel that has been passed down across generations of Kivat-Bats. According to Kivat-Bat the 3rd, it is a memento of his grandfather.
- Kivat Scope (キバットスコープ, Kibatto Sukōpu) - The eyes. While it is usually red, it will change color when under the influence of surrounding forces (for example, it will turn green in Kiva's Bassha Form). The eyes actually have poor eyesight, and Kivat usually perceives his surrounding by using his ears.
- Active Fang (アクティブファング, Akutibu Fangu) - The teeth. When Kiva is bitten, demonic power enters the body via the Active Fangs, enabling transformation. In addition, it can chew a weapon to infuse it with power, allowing Kiva to deal deathblows.
- Kivat Maws (キバットマウス, Kibatto Mausu) - The jaws. It is extremely strong, and has a "chin power" on 1 ton. The sense of taste is extremely developed, turning Kivat into some sort of gourmet. As a result, Kivat is an expert in gastronomy, even though he has not yet eaten multiple types of food.
- Kivat Persona (キバット・ペルソナ, Kibatto Perusona) - The golden mask on the face, it is a family heirloom passed down across generations of Kivat-Bats. It is cast of Lucifer Gold (ルシファーゴールド, Rushifā Gōrudo), a magical metal that boasts enough strength to repel magnum bullets.
- Kivat Sonar (キバットソナー, Kibatto Sonā) - The ears. It emits supersonic waves, allowing Kivat to perceive his surroundings, as well as communicate with Kiva from a long distance. It can obtain information from 50km away.
- Kivat Claws (キバットクロー, Kibatto Kurō) - The feet. It has a grip strength of 500 kg. The Kivat Claws are used to perch on the Kivat Belt's Power Roost.
- Kivat Wings (キバットウイング, Kibatto Uingu) - The wings. When fully deployed, they allow Kivat to fly up to 70km/hr. They are decorated with Lucifer Gold.
- Wing Claws (ウイングクロー, Uingu Kurō) - The metal claws on the tips of the Kivat Wings. They are made of the same Lucifer Metal (ルシファーメタル, Rushifā Metaru) that Kiva's armor is composed of, and are extremely sharp, making them ideal piercing weapons when swooping at opponents.
