Fangire Tribe

Borrowing the form of humans, a race of monsters that live using the Life Energy of humans as food. Summoning [Life Sucking Fang], objects that look like fangs floating in the air, pierces the neck of humans sucking out the life energy from them. The body of attacked humans turns into a colorless transparent glass, and breaks in the end. While in Kaijin Form, during the consumption of the life energy, the lower jaw raises a flashy stained glass figure. Every individual has a characteristic feature, they are generally classed with animals calling themselves [(Animal) Fangire]. Outward appearance and body organization liken to a stained glass, their original form can still converse with humans, during battle they can summon custom weapons. Among them that does not have a human face can still make conversation. Again, even in the same race, the variation in battle ability are somewhat violent.

Aside from [seeing humans as food], their thought and behaviours are no different from humans, many among them have lived mingling into human society. But for fangires compared to humans has a longer life span (Speed from youth to adulthood are the same as humans, but old age is extremely slow), in order to camouflage the aging process then go about the different eras in different occupation. Because they think like humans, they charm humans that they want to feed on, there are also Fangire that are in a relationship, but this is the greatest prohibition for a Fangire, Fangires that ends up with humans are eliminated by the [Queen]. As long as this prohibition is not touched, in front of the management of the Checkmate Four, every individuals are free to live their life. For that reason, there are conflicts among the race, ambition in aiming for the seat in the Checkmate four, movement are extremely varied.

When they die their bodies become glass and shatters, using what remains of the shard infusing it with life energy, they exists as living dead with no clarity of thought. Furthermore, dying aside from their life span, an energy ball floats from their body containing the Life Energy, this is the raw materials for Sabat (later explained). This Fangire Revival technique, aside from the highest nobles and the Checkmate Four, only a high positioned Fangire can learn this technique.

There are also different classification among the Fangire race, the insect like [Insect Class], beast like [Beast Class], aquatic creature like [Aqua Class], reptile like [Lizard Class], these 4 classes exists. Again, the Fangire race itself is a kind of monster race, [Kivat Race], [Doran Race], [Sagarc Race], [Wolfen Race], [Merman Race], [Franken Race], and 12 others belonging to other races, either way for the prosperity of the Fangire, serving the Fangires for generations. With the exception of the [Legendorga Race] from the movie, a monster race that surpasses the Fangire in strength.

In the last chapter, D&P has a plan to coexists with humans, but the future has the Neo Fangire as a threat (outward appearance of a giant battle formation, particulars unknown).

Furthermore, there are no Kaijin that have the motif of a bird, actually the designer put on hold the design of the Fangire, in relation to the aforementioned design, the suggested keywords are included.


Gathering the life energies of deceased Fangire they can be reborn, in a giant aura aggregation. Particularly the body color is different, throughout the body is similar to the other fangires covered with stained glass. In the series they appeared with a body color of blue-orange-red. Similar to reborned Fangire their will is clearly that of a living dead, if a Fangire is present when summoned with Sabat can be under control, if not then will just go berserk. Uses light bomb and tentacles as weapons. Furthermore, when Kiva defeats a Fangire, the energy ball that is their life energy is consumed by Castle Doran, and cannot be used as raw materials for Sabat.
