He works at an atelier to continue his father's legacy of violin making with a dream to create the ultimate violin, using strange methods to accomplish it. But, Wataru is destined from birth to become the current Kamen Rider Kiva as his mother is Maya of the Checkmate Four, receiving a button with a diamond encrusted crown on it from her as a baby. He teams up with Kivat to fight the Fangire race and protect humanity from them, only because the Bloody Rose orders him to "fight". But in time, Wataru learns of his family legacy and nature as a dhampir, as well as desiring to change into someone just like his father. Evidently, Wataru is the one who inherited Kiva, as his full-blooded predecessor nihongo|Dark Kiva|闇のキバ|Yami no Kiba attempted to destroy humanity in 1986 with the Ixa System the only thing to take him down.

Fictional character biography

Ever since he was a child, Wataru lived in the European-style manor that is said to be haunted, referred to by his neighbors as nihongo|"Obaketaro|お化け太郎|Obaketarō|literally "Ghost Boy" for his strange appearance, donning a mask and glasses to protect him from the "world's allergies" and using a notebook to express himself without talking. His only friend during his childhood was a boy named Taiga, who helped Wataru when he was bullied and mysterious dissappeared. In 2008, while gathering fish bones in a third attempt to create the ultimate varnish for the ultimate violin like his father, Wataru comes across Megumi Aso, who manages to show him that his "allergies" are all in his head. He later saves her from the Horse Fangire as Kiva, countering her attempt to kill him soon after before leaving her stupefied, later saving her a second time from the Octopus Fangire. During the events of "Climax Deka", Wataru offers some aid to Ryotaro Nogami during his fight against Nega Den-O and the Nega Den-Liner.

When a female lawyer named Aya Natsukawa arrives to Wataru's home with a list of the various people that Otoya had victimized with his antics, Wataru is devastated to know a side of his father his mother never told him. After meeting Keisuke Nago and getting his advice, Wataru performs acts of moral obligation for his father's sins, until he learns that Natsukawa is the Moth Fangire and Otoya's most wounded victim. Unable to fight her, Kivat is forced to summon Garulu to supplant Wataru with his feral rage in Garulu Form so Kiva can kill the Fangire. When Keisuke requests that Wataru keep an eye on Megumi in his stead, he meets a young man named Noboru, who is obsessed with Megumi himself. When Noboru reveals himself to be the Sheep Fangire, Wataru learns of Keisuke's hatred towards Kiva. Saddened but undaunted, Wataru manages to rescue Megumi when she is captured by the Sheep Fangire, destroying him in Basshaa Form. Since the incident, Wataru took to heart what Megumi learned from her mother: the same ideology Otoya follows: "All humans are music". Eventually, Wataru is forced to lose all of Keisuke's respect for him when he tries to protect the Frog Fangire, Takeo Ōmura. However, Wataru did learn from Ōmura that he needs to make a violin to call his own.

It was later that Wataru meets Kengo, whose rock and roll helps him in becoming more confident in himself. Though Wataru and Kengo have separate dreams, the two promise to help the other out so that both their dreams come true. Wataru ensures his part by protecting Kengo from the Rhinoceros Fangire, accessing Dogga Form. However, Wataru's world is turned upside again when he encounters the Lion Fangire Rook, whom he met when he was suffering amnesia. However by meeting Mami Kurasawa, a former student under his father (of which he is unaware), Wataru learns to cope with the recent Fangire events of who's evil and not by "listening to the voice in his heart." After begrudgingly following Kengo to a fortune teller to find out who Kiva really is, Wataru loses consciousness. When he awakens, he is more confident in his abilities, but has a very sarcastic attitude. It is revealed that he is possessed, albeit unknowingly, by his father Otoya as a result of the fortune teller's ritual. While using Wataru's body, although unable to maintain possession at times, Otoya teaches Megumi how to overcome her fears of using the Ixa Knuckle and she is able to help Ixa defeat the Ladybug Fangire. When Otoya finally leaves, Wataru has no recollection on what has happened under the influence of his father's spirit.

Soon after this, at a mixer that Kengo set up, Keisuke has a waitress named Mio fired for accidentally spilling ice cream on his shirt. Feeling sorry for her, Wataru runs after her and finds out that they have a lot in common and they start dating with Megumi's help. However, when a berserk Grizzly Fangire tries to kill Mio, a rage awakens within Wataru that releases Tatsulot from Castle Doran who unleashes Kiva's full power, changing Kiva into his Emperor Form to mortally wound the Fangire's soul. Before Mio took her leave, due to personal issues, Wataru promises Mio that he would get stronger for her. While the Fangire Hunters were being arrested, Wataru remembers Taiga and deceides to help them out as with he and Kengo joining the Fangire Hunters to battle the Crab Fangire until Nago altered history so that the Cicada Fangire's survival negated the Fangire Hunters' crisis. But in the aftermath of the fight against both Fangires, Nago learns that the button he gave to Maya ended up in Wataru's possession, explaining it to be a heirloom from his mother, setting up the events where Nago learns that Wataru is Kiva. Later, Wataru is face to face with a fully grown Taiga, only to be devastated after learning that he and Mio are engaged. This stress, augmented by Kengo's return, causes the Bloody Rose to crack. Though he finishes repairing the violin, he realizes something is missing from the Bloody Rose. Then, Jiro appears to him, revealing to Wataru that his father's desires dwell within the violin. When abmushed by Kukulkan while fighting the Horsefly Fangire, Kivat holds the monster at bay as Wataru plays the Bloody Rose, realizing his father's desires to protect all music. Infusing the violin with his own desire to find his own music, Kiva finally awakens into Flight Style to destroy the Kukulkan. However, this event causes the evoking of a weapon within Castle Doran, the Imperial Blade of the previous King of the Checkmate Four.

By pulling the switch on Tatsulot, Wataru can activate Tatsulot's nihongo|Imperial Slot|インペリアルスロット|Inperiaru Surotto and activate one of several "Fever" finishing attacks through a roulette.

Bloody Rose

A special violin, the nihongo|Bloody Rose|ブラッディ・ローズ|Buraddi Rōzu was created by Otoya and Maya as the "ultimate violin", later rumored to be a product of Otoya selling his soul to the devil himself. The Bloody Rose will sound whenever a Fangire is detected in the area, its music only heard by Kivat and Wataru, who hears it as a voice commanding him to "Fight", as it pinpoints the exact location the Fangire could be found. When played, the Bloody Rose can also disrupt a Fangire's activity. However, the Bloody Rose is sympathic to Wataru's mentality as it cracked when he fell into a deep depression. However, after repairing it, Wataru learns the Bloody Rose holds the desires of his father, placing in it his own desire to assume Flight-Style.


Kivat Belt

The nihongo|Kivat Belt|キバットベルト|Kibatto Beruto is Kamen Rider Kiva's means of transforming. To summon and use the belt, Kivat-bat the 3rd says nihongo|"Let's go Kiva!"|キバっていくぜ!|Kiba tte ikuze! as Wataru catches him in his right hand and then Kivat bites Wataru's free hand, causing his Fangire nature to surface as the belt materializes out of several ghostly chains. Wataru then perches Kivat upside down on the nihongo|Power Roost|パワールースト|Pawā Rūsuto of the belt's nihongo|Kibuckle|キバックル|Kibakkuru to complete the transformation, separating from the belt when certain conditions demand for it like Fuestle-blowing or attacking the Fangire on his own. The Kivat Belt also has six nihongo|Fueslots|フエッスロット|Fuessurotto to hold the six Fuestles.


Kiva accesses his arsenal through whistles on his belt called nihongo|Fuestles|フエッスル|Fuessuru, which he gives to Kivat to blow into to evoke a power-up. Three of the Fuestles serve to summon an allied Arms Monster from Castle Doran, who allows for Kiva to Form Change and turns into a weapon. These three Fuestles' powers can be evoked immediately before Wataru transforms, enabling him to transform to the respective form directly without going through Kiva Form.
*nihongo|Wake Up Fuestle|ウエイクアップフエッスル|Ueiku Appu Fuessuru: This Fuestle allow Kiva to perform his Darkness Moon Break attack.

*: This Fuestle summons Tatsulot from Castle Doran. It is different from Kiva's other fuestles in that it is red instead of transparent and does not appear to be stored on Kiva's belt.

A nihongo|"Kiva Says Fuestle"|キバッテフエッスル|Kibatte Fuessuru was included with the August 2008 issue of "Terebi-kun Magazine". When used with the toy Kivat Belt, it makes Kivat say all the phrases said by his current mood.

Garulu Saber

The nihongo|Demon-Beast Sword Garulu Saber|魔獣剣ガルルセイバー|Majūken Garuru Seibā is a weapon that Garulu assumes for Kiva to change into Garulu Form. Though in a statuette form when summoned, the Garulu Saber assumes a Kris form once in Kiva's hand. One of its abilities is to fire a shockwave named nihongo|Howling Shock|ハウリングショック|Hauringu Shokku from the hilt. The Garulu Saber can be use for the finishing attack nihongo|Garulu Howling Slash|ガルル・ハウリングスラッシュ|Garuru Hauringu Surasshu. This is done by first having Kivat perform a nihongo|Garulu Bite|ガルルバイト|Garuru Baito on the blade of the Garulu Saber after which Kiva holsters, by way of "biting", the weapon in his mouth as he charges at the Fangire, jumping in the air to slash the Fangire into two as he lands in front of it.

The ball of the hammer opens up like a hand to reveal the nihongo|True Eye|トゥルーアイ|Turū Ai in the palm, which can pinpoint a Fangire's exact location or release a shockwave that weakens the opponent Fangire's glass skin, rendering it immobile. Then the head of the hammer produces a giant energy duplicate of itself called the nihongo|Phantom Hand|ファントムハンド|Fantomu Hando, which follows Kiva's swings and crushes the enemy with massive collateral damage.


*Height: 2020mm
*Weight: 540kg
*Maximum flight speed: 650km/hThe nihongo|Demon Statue Buroon|魔像ブロン|Mazō Buron is a nihongo|Golem|ゴーレム|Gōremu made of nihongo|Lucifer Gold|ルシファーゴールド|Rushifā Gōrudo which is a tool made by the Fangire. It can merge with the Machine Kivaa and become the Buroon Booster.

Tatsulot was resting inside the ceiling of Castle Doran until Wataru's rage from the harm coming to Mio awakens him. Sometimes appearing without being summoned by the Tatsulot Fuestle, he and Kivat do not usually get along because of their differing attitudes. He is known to say nihongo|"Pyunpyuun! Tension fortissimo!"|ぴゅんぴゅーん!テンションフォルティッシモ!|Pyunpyūn! Tenshon forutisshimo!. While Kiva is in Emperor Form, Tatsulot's nihongo|Imperial Slot|インペリアルスロット|Inperiaru Surotto utilizes a roulette system to use one of four Fever themed attacks, with Tatsulot able to attach to each of the Arms Monster weapons for more power. Later, Tatsulot joins Kivat telling the viewer random historical facts while scenes from the previous episode play in the background.
*nihongo|Wake Up Fever|ウエイクアップフィーバー|Ueiku Appu Fībā activates Emperor Form's nihongo|Emperor Moon Break|エンペラームーンブレイク|Enperā Mūn Bureiku. Kiva's legs are surrounded by energy blades similar in shape to the "wings" of Kiva's insignia. With these blades, Kiva can hit a variety of kicks, including a bicycle kick with the blades stabbing through the target, an attack sometimes preceded by a front dropkick, and a jumping roundhouse kick.
*nihongo|Garulu Fever|ガルルフィーバー|Garuru Fībā summons the Garulu Saber as Tatsulot connects to the hilt, allowing Kiva to be shot into the air for the nihongo|Emperor Howling Slash|エンペラーハウリングスラッシュ|Enperā Hauringu Surasshu overhead slash attack. This attack can also allow both ends of the Garulu Saber to become fiery blades for an alternative finisher.

Zanvat Sword

The nihongo|Demon Imperial Sword Zanvat Sword|魔皇剣ザンバットソード|Makōken Zanbatto Sōdo was originally the nihongo|Imperial Blade|インペリアルブレイド|Inperiaru Bureido, a sword of great power crafted and used by the previous King. By 2008, after sensing the power of Wataru as he evokes Kiva's Flight Style, the sword forced itself out of Castle Doran's walls. The Imperial Blade is soon after modified with a living hilt named nihongo|Zanbat-bat|ザンバットバット|Zanbattobatto, called "Zanbat" for short, who was created from the life energies of the Arms Monsters to control the unstable powers of the blade. A frightening figure, Zanbat offers aid to his owner for a bit of the person's life energy in return to wield the Zanbat Sword. Though Wataru is accepted as a ideal user, he has yet to full master the Zanbat Sword's true power. When used by Kiva in Emperor form, its finishing attack is the nihongo|Final Zanvat Slash|ファイナルザンバット斬|Fainaru Zanbatto Zan where Kiva's power is focused into the Imperial Blade. [cite web|url=http://www.toeihero.net/onair/kiva/16.shtml|title=東映ヒーローネット ! special fanclub toeihero.net ! 皇帝の大剣|accessdate=2008-09-26] Zanbat has his own nihongo|Wake Up Fuestle|ウエイクアップフエッスル|Ueiku Appu Fuessuru to initiate the Final Zanvat Slash.

Though originally called the nihongo|Great Wyvern|グレートワイバーン|Gurēto Waibān, the Fangire captured it and bonded it to the mold of a castle so it would serve as the base of the Checkmate Four. Wataru eventually became its master through Kivat from his mother Maya. While dormant, it assumes the form of a building to conceal itself in plain sight, invisible to ordinary people. When exposed to moonlight, or when Kiva performs his finishing move or uses the Doran Fuestle, Castle Doran awakens and assumes its true form. Due to its unique abilities of sealing defeated Fangire, Castle Doran is home to the Arm Monsters, who are in now servitude of Wataru while being maintained on the Life Energy of the sealed Fangire that Castle Doran devours. In battle, Castle Doran can use nihongo|Magic Missiles|マジックミサイル|Majikku Misairu, firing the towers on its castle, and spit out nihongo|Pod Shoots|ポッドシュート|Poddo Shūto from its mouth.

Castle Doran also possesses the power to transcend time and space, first showing the ability in when aiding Kiva, Den-O and Zeronos in the battle against the Nega Den-Liner.

Although it was originally a child of the Great Wyvern, the Fangire captured it and bonded it to the mold of a windmill as a scout and bomber. When it comes to battle, Shoodoran perches atop Castle Doran, allowing it to fight at full power. Like Castle Doran, Shoodoran seals the souls of defeated Fangire Race members by eating their bodiless souls.
