Batholomew III is a character in Kamen Rider: Vampire King serving as the Vampire Bat partner & transformation device of the protagonist, Kamen Rider Vampire King.


Batholomew is a yellow & black Vampire Bat with large red eyes. He is distinguished amongest others of his race possessing two family heirlooms, the green Demon Imperial Stone on his forehead & the Vampire Bat Persona on his face. His wings are onrnated with Lucifer Gold.


Batholomew is a solid character with a dry wit, tending to have a bitter attitude. Despite this he still cares deeply about his partner Scott, forming a partnership with him since they first met in the attic & giving tips during battle against others. He likes Mira Pendelton because she reminds him of Amedeo Modigliani's masterpieces, particularly the man's works of long-necked women. He often gets annoyed by things such as the Taro's constant interruptions during the openings of The Final Countdown or the certain actions of Tatsulot.


As a Vampire Bat, he possesses Demon Imperial Powers like the Active Force which he can infuse into others by biting with his Active Fangs which summons the Vampire Belt where he is then placed upon for the transformation into Vampire King. He is also able to blow on Fuestles to summon items or other things like Castle Doran. His eye color changes depending on what form Vampire King is in.

Aside from being Vampire King's power source, Batholomew possesses a technique called Vampire Bat Cutter with his Lucifer Gold adorned Vampire Bat Wings which can cut through opponents.
