*** Ironically, it appears that in the world of VideoGame/TeamFortress2, there is in fact a clan of black Scottish demolitions experts... but the Demoman is unusual in that he still has one of his eyes.

** This multi-racial team lineup also seems to apply to the non-human Alien Rangers of Aquitar, which includes the black Aquitian Blue Alien Ranger Cestro.

* Teal'c in ''Series/StargateSG1'', who, as well as being the token black guy, is also the token alien of the titular flagship off-world reconnaissance team SG-1. In the fifth episode of the first season, one of the first signs that the team have brought a highly contagious infection back from another world is an unprovoked assault on Teal'c, which, perhaps for the sake of not appearing racially aggravated, is instigated by another black man.

* There are quite a few black characters on ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', but somehow none of them come even as close to being core cast as the women. In fact, the only one who managed to be seriously recurring was the psychotic VampireHunter who eventually became a vampire. His ScaryBlackMan traits were played with initially in that Dean thought he and his {{badass}} attitude toward decapitation was ''awesome'', and then the guy turned out to be a hateful extremist who'd offed his own little sister after she was vamped, which pushed Dean's BerserkButton, and who didn't make any distinction between FriendlyNeighborhoodVampires and the dangerous kind.
