Return of UltramanEdit
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, since a disguised Alien Nackle had killed the two best friends, including the girlfriend, of Jack's human host, Hideki Go, while MAT was fighting 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 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, he was rescued by the original Ultraman and Ultraseven. Ultraman Jack then 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 the Alien 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.
- For reasons unknown, Black King is gold in the image.
Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The MovieEdit
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.
- The Femigon Suit from Ultraman Mebius was modified into Black King for his appearance in the Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends film.
- Black King is one of the kaiju that makes up Beryudora's 2nd Support group in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The Movie.
Ultraman Saga/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.
- 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 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.
- Technically, Black King Drill Custom is simply a reintroduced version of the Remodeled Black King. However, to differentiate the two, the Remodeled version's drill is bigger in comparison to the current one in Ultraman X.
- Height: 65 m
- Weight: 60,000 t
- Origin: Planet Nackle

- Burrowing: Black King can burrow it's way underground at moderate speeds. He uses this in order to travel.

Powers and WeaponsEdit
RedmanEditBlack King reappeared episodes 2 and 5 of the series, Redman.
- In episode 2, Black King battled Redman. He proved to be a tough opponent, dodging the Red Spear. But he was killed when Redman slashed him with his Red Knife.
- In episode 5, Black King teams with Arstron to fight Redman. Redman tricked Arstron with his teleportation and killed him with the Red Chop. When Black King arrived, they brawled until Black King fell unconscious. Redman picked up his body and threw it onto the ground.
- 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.
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.
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
He appeared in episodes 15 (talked about researched monsters), 16 (talked about the Mega Monster Battle series), 17 (appeared alongside Taro when he talks about the time when Cyphon headed the Earth), 27 (talked about more monsters they researched), 37 (talked about evil Ultramen they researched), and 52 (when they gathered around to hear Taro's greatest adventures on Earth).
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 InformationEditBlack 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 until 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.
"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.
