Return of UltramanEditAfter Seagoras and Bemstar were defeated, Alien Nackle sent out his own kaiju Black King, whom 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.
Bu 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 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 RetsudenEditBlack 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.
- The Black King Suit from the Ultra Galaxy Legend film was reused for Black King's appearance in the film.
- 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.
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 becomes the kaiju. He soon in counters Thunder Darambia and the two fight. He is then swaped out for Ultraman Ginga and Black King reverts back into a doll as Thunder Darambia was too powerful for him.
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.

Figure Release InfomationEditBlack 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.
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.
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 Neo 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.
