World of the Rider War
The Rat Fangire was among four Fangires who were part of a gathering of monsters that were revived by Super Apollogeist in the World of the Rider War through a surplus of life energy which he had gained during his wedding to the Fangire Queen. These four Fangires were combined to create a copy of the strongest Fangire from the World of Kiva, Beetle Fangire. This Beetle Fangire is later destroyed by Kuuga's Mighty Kick.
