Kiba & Raigō
Dark Knight

Madou Horse Raigō (魔導馬 雷剛(まどうば らいごう) Madōba Raigō, lit. " Thunderous Strength") is a corrupted Madō Horse belongs to Kiba which only appeared in KIBA: Dark Knight Side Story.

Description & Characteristics[edit | edit source]

As Kiba Armor was originally a titleless Makai Armor (implied to be a silver Hagane), Raigō' origins was shrouded by mystery. It's implied during his dark journey after corrupting his armor with his inner darkness as per Messiah's instruction, Barago managed to forge the Madō Horse to counter Garo's Gōten instead of overcoming the same trial as the Golden Knight. Not surprisingly, it shares same powers and abilities to the latter, such as traveling between dimensions and upgrading Makai Blade at hand into stronger version of itself; In Raigō's case, turning Kiba's Kokuenken (黒炎剣, Black Flame Sword) into Enma Zankōken (閻魔斬光剣, Enma Light-Cleaving Sword).

The fate of Raigō was after Kiba's destruction, let alone whether it can be summoned to real world as the only on-screen instance of the Madōba being summoned was during Barago's duel against his inner light that manifested as Garo (his former ambition) in "True Makai", Barago's inner underworld. Suggestively, Raigō can be summoned to the real wolf like its golden counterpart, though Kiba chose not to as it was not needed. Regardless, with Kiba's end, the Madōba was left inactive.

History[edit | edit source]

Dark Knight Side Story[edit | edit source]

Raigō is summoned by Barago in the fight against his inner light (his former dream to be the next Golden Knights) at his inner underworld that takes the appearance of Garo manifested by Bado's spell. Both knights and their steed battle an epic fight, which culminated to Kiba knocked Garo off Gōten and devoured by a massive dragon-like demon beast that represented Barago's inner darkness.

After the fight, Raigō is no longer seen afterwards.
