The Yagi Inves (ヤギインベス Yagi Inbesu, lit. "Goat Inves") is a Red-type breed of Advanced Inves.
A Yagi Inves appeared in Zawame and started attacking people before being driven off by Gaim and Jiro. The Inves later fought with Hakaider (controlled by Ryoma Sengoku) against Gaim Kachidoki Arms and Kikaider, but it was a destroyed by a combined finisher from the two after Hakaider fled.
At least two Yagi Inves were part of the Inves army led by Grinsha, having been sent by Redyue to capture humans in Zawame in order to revive the Overlord Queen for Rosyuo as part of his plot to gain the Forbidden Fruit. One Yagi Inves was among the Inves destroyed after being crushed by the onslaught of Gridon Suika Arms (Odama Mode).
A Yagi Inves and a Lion Inves appeared worshiping Kaito, following his evolution into Lord Baron, as he announced before the Armored Riders that he would destroy the world and remake it in his image. The two Inves, along with Marika, helped put down Bravo and Gridon when they opposed him.
A Yagi Inves appeared alongside a Lion Inves to back-up Demushu, who had been revived along with the other Over Lords by Maja, when he was fighting Armored Riders Baron, Marika and Knuckle. Fighting Knuckle, the Yagi Inves is soon enough destroyed by his Kurumi Squash.
Advanced Inves typically start out as Elementary Inves (初級インベス Shokyū Inbesu), human-sized Inves summoned by Lockseeds from the Helheim Forest during an Inves Game to battle against the Armored Riders (opponent) or the opponents' Inves. In a normal Inves Game, they are about the same size as a small child, but when summoned by an Armored Rider or through a jailbroken Lockseed, they will retain their full size. If they break out of an Inves Game, they will go into a rampage and start attacking until they are either sent back into the Helheim Forest or killed. When they eat a mature Lockseed, they will evolve into a stronger, animal-based form called a Advanced State.
Advanced Inves (上級インベス Jōkyū Inbesu) are human-sized Inves summoned by Lockseeds from the Helheim Forest during an Inves Game to battle against the Armored Riders (opponent) or the opponents' Inves, though only when someone uses an A-Ranked Lockseed. Unlike their lesser Elementary counterparts, Advanced Inves retain their human size while in a Inves Game, as well as being themed after a specific animal. They are also much stronger than their previous evolution, prompting the need of a Armored Rider if a rogue Advanced Inves is around.
While wild Advanced Inves are somewhat uncommon, this kind of Inves can also be created by having a Elementary Inves feed on a Lockseed, where they evolve into a Advanced Inves that shares their color. Advanced Inves can also be created when a human eats a unripened fruit.
When it tosses its head forward, the Yagi Inves can turn its horns into a spinning drill that can stretch out to great lengths.
