Return of UltramanEdit

King Black

Black King in The Return of Ultraman

After Seagoras and Bemstar were defeated, Alien Nackle sent out his own kaiju Black King, who acted as his bodyguard to distract MAT. MAT's weapons were no match for Black King's impenetrable skin, and after a while of fighting Black King soon fled the scene, using a white, gassy smokescreen he exhaled from his mouth. Hours later, Black King is summoned again as bait to trap an emotionally hurting Ultraman Jack, ( a disguised Alien Nackle had killed two of Go's best friends, including his girlfriend while MAT fought Black King.)

However like MAT before him, Ultraman Jack's superpowers were no match for Black King's incredible hide, and the kaiju beat down Jack. Alien Nackle appeared himself shortly afterwards and both the kaiju and the alien double-teamed Jack until finally Jack collapsed from his injures and was taken to Planet Nackle for execution.

But before Jack could be executed, Ultraman and Ultraseven arrived and rescued Ultraman Jack from his demise. Ultraman Jack thanked his comrades and returns to Earth to face off against both Black King and Alien Nackle once again. At first the battle is in favor of the combined forces of Black King and his Master, but Ultraman Jack fought back, and after tossing him up into the air, Ultraman Jack decapitated Black King before moving on to Nackle.


  • Black King was originally intended to be Red King's elder brother, but the idea was scrapped, but some sources still claim that he is the brother of Red King.
  • Black King appears in the Japanese variety show, Takeshi's Castle in the special "Monster" episode. He participates in the games "Quake" (where is successful) and "Boulder Dash" (in which he fails.) In the U.S. variation of the show known as "MXC," he is called "Tupacashaft," and is the star of monsploitation films of the 1970s. During MXC's variation of the episode, Quake is not featured in it.
  • During the climatic final battle of Episode 38 where Ultraman Jack defeats Black King and Alien Nackle, when Jack lifts Black King into the air, a wire used to hold up the Black King suit is visible for a few seconds.
  • Black King's roar is a modified Mummy man roar.
  • Black King is the 4th Kaiju that have "King" in his name.
  • Black King is a playable character in the PSP game, Ultraman Fighting Evolution 0.

Black King as part of the Monster Army

Although not physically seen, Black King was seen in a animated flashback as part of the Monster army lead by Alien Empera in Episode 25 of Ultraman Taro.

Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The MovieEdit

Black King in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The Movie

Black King returned in the movie Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The Movie.

Black King is the last kaiju borrowed by Alien Shaplay (whom in turn, both kaiju and alien are both controlled by Ultraman Belial) to stop Rei and the Ultra Brothers in their human forms. Rei summons Gomora to do battle and in no time, Black King is killed when Gomora impales him on his horn and then destroys him with a Super Oscillatory Wave at point blank.


Ultraman Saga/Ultraman RetsudenEdit

Black king saga

Black King, as seen in Ultraman Retsuden.

Black King reappeared in episode 39 of the series, Ultraman Retsuden.

In a special episode showcasing certain events prior to the Ultraman Saga film, Black King is seen as one of the many kaiju revived by Alien Bat and Gransphere to battle against the Ultra Brothers, with Black King battling with Ultraman Jack. Black King fought with Jack for a short period of time, but was eventually killed by Jack's Ultra Bracelet impaling him as a spear.


  • In his original appearance, Black King beat Ultraman Jack with relative ease, but was killed with ease by Jack in this film, this is most likely due to Alien Bat's modifications.

Ultraman GingaEdit


Black King's Rise in Ultraman Ginga

Black King was one of the kaiju to be turned into a Spark Doll by Dark Lugiel. Hikaru finds Black King using his Ginga Spark. He then tests out the doll and transforms into Black King. After a few minutes of playing around with his new form, He soon encounters Thunder Darambia, and the two fight. During the fight, Black King is beaten down by Thunder Darambia, so Hikaru finds Ultraman Ginga's spark doll and switches Black King out for the hero, reverting the Kaiju back into its Spark Doll. In episode 7 Hikaru uses him to fight Dark Galberos, a wrestling match begins between the two but, Black King wasn't winning the fight and even had to ask for a break when he was down. He is later swapped out for Ultraman Ginga in round two and him and many other monsters are seen cheering Ginga on.

It is likely he returned to space in his original form after Ultraman Ginga defeated Dark Lugiel.


  • Besides Ultraman Taro, Black King is the first Spark Doll Hikaru finds but, is the first Spark Doll he uses in battle.
  • Black King is the first kaiju to have a Henshin/transformation.
  • Despite being under someone's control, this is first time Black King has as a hero rather than a villain.

Black King in Redman

Black King reappeared episodes 2 and 5 of the series, Redman. In episode 5, Black King teams with Arstron to fight Redman but are defeated.


  • In this series, Black King displays the ability to fire organic missiles from his fingers. An ability that he never used in his subsequent appearances. This however is most likely an example of the show's low budget.
  • In this series, Black King possesses the roar of the Toho kaiju, Godzilla.

Monster BustersEdit

Black King appeares in this video game as well as a subspecies called Black King Gold (ブラックキング金 Burakku Kingu Kin?).


  • His golden subspecies may have been inspired by the picture with Alien Empera in Taro.
  • Due to his golden color, Black King Gold resembles Red King more.

Ultraman GalaxyEdit

Black King reappeared in the new puzzle role-playing game for mobile devices, Ultraman Galaxy as a UR (Ultra Rare) card that you can unlock him in a event called The Impenetrable Adversary with a rare chance of getting Black King.

New Ultraman RetsudenEdit

Black King appeares as one of the hosts of New Ultraman Retsuden in the "Spark Doll Theatre" section. He appears alongside Ragon, Kemur Man, Thunder Darambia and King Pandon.

In episode 37, he, along with Ragon and Kemur Man, took on Chaos Ultraman and Chaosroids T and U. Black King took out Chaos Ultraman quickly with his Energy Bolt after he swatted away Chaos Ultraman's attack.

Figure Release InfomationEdit

Black King is released many times in the Ultra Monster Series. He has 4 points of articulation and for most of the time the older figuers sport either more black than gold or the other way around untill the repaint version which gives it a more acurate look. In 2013 Black King is released as one of the Ultra Monster 500 series and is #8 and stands at 5in. He is also released by Bullmark and Popy.

Spark DollEdit

Black King Spark Doll

"UltraLive, Black King!"

―Black King UltraLived via Ginga Spark

Black King became a Spark Doll in the conclusion of the Dark Spark War due to the Darkness Spark's powers. His Spark doll fell to Mt. Furuboshi, and found by Hikaru Raido, who kept him as the first addition to his collection.


  • Height: 14 cm
  • Weight: 150 g


This Spark Doll has been used on two occasions by one person:

  • In Episode 1, Hikaru accidentally UltraLived into Black King, but after being ambushed by Thunder Darambia, he was swapped out for Ultraman Ginga.
  • In Episode 7, Hikaru lived into Black King again to combat Dark Galberos, but after a short boxing match that he lost, Black King was swapped out for Ginga.

After Dark Lugiel's defeat, Black King's Spark Doll is likely to have reverted back to its original form and depart Earth to return home.
