Series/KamenRiderBlack deserves a CharacterSheet for if not, [[MemeticMutation it is a Gorgom Plot]].


[[folder: Protagonist]]
!! Kotaro Minami/Kamen Rider BLACK

!!! Tropes that apply to him in general
* AbelAndCain: The Abel to Nobuhiko's Cain. This becomes tragically clear when Nobuhiko emerges as Gorgom's champion, the two would inevitably clash to the death until only one remains.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:After his death at the hands of Shadow Moon, the Whale Mutant manages to retrieved his corpse and revived him with a special potion]].
* CameBackStrong: [[spoiler:As a result of being revived by the Whale Mutant through a special potion, he manages to destroy Grand Mutant Darom with ease]].
%%* FingerlessGloves
* TheHero: The titular character of the series.
* TheHeroDies: At the end of episode 47, [[spoiler:he was legitimately killed by Shadow Moon in their first duel thanks to the intervention of the Creation King. It didn't last long after he was resurrected 2 episodes later]].
%%* HopeBringer
%%* MessianicArchetype
* PhlebotinumRebel: Is one of Gorgom's {{Chosen One}}s, but escaped brainwashing and turned on them.
%%* TrainingFromHell

!!! Tropes exclusive to him as Kamen Rider BLACK
* BareFistedMonk: Similar to his predecessors, BLACK only relies on hand-to-hand combat along with the reliance of searching his enemies' weak points.
%%* DarkIsNotEvil
* FinishingMove: The signature Rider Punch and Rider Kick.
%%* JackOfAllStats

!! Battle Hopper
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Twice. First when insects corrupt him and make him go berserk, and again when Shadow Moon overrides Black's control of him.

%%* JackOfAllStats
%%* NonHumanSideKick

!! Road Sector

%%* LawOfChromaticSuperiority
%%* LightningBruiser

%%* RedIsHeroic


!!Creation King
%%* BigBad: The true mastermind behind Gorgom.
* EvilIsVisceral: He's a giant floating heart.
%%* TheGMIsACheatingBastard:
* GreaterScopeVillain: [[spoiler:If it wasn't for him, not only would Kotaro and Nobuhiko have grown up leading normal lives, but Gorgom would not have been created, and Kotaro's adoptive father/Nobuhiko's father would still be alive]]
%%* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld
%%* SatanicArchetype
* WalkingSpoiler: It's really hard to talk about him without talking about spoiling the end of Black.

!!Nobuhiko Akizuki/Shadow Moon
%%* AbelAndCain: Cain to Kotaro's Abel.
* AntiChrist: Unlike Kotaro, Nobuhiko ended up become this figure thanks to the brainwashing he received from Gorgom.
* BigBad: Once he's revived he assumes leadership of Gorgom.
%%* TheDragon: To [[spoiler:the Creation King]].
* EvilCounterpart: Inverted. BLACK is the GoodCounterpart since the Century Kings were meant to be brainwashed into evil in the first place.
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler:With the help from the Creation King, he has managed to kill Black during their first match]].
%%* LightIsNotGood
* LightningBruiser: Compared to Black's sleeker appearance, Shadow Moon has more armor-looking in appearance, yet his overall stats are equal to Black.
* SatanicArchetype: The Century Kings and the [[spoiler:Creation King]] are essentially equivalent to the role of a demon king. This is lampshaded even futher in the manga adaptation by Creator/ShotaroIshinomori where Black and Shadow Moon are addressed as "demon kings" instead of century kings.
* ShockAndAwe: Comes in green, yellow, and red variants.
%%* TragicVillain
* UnskilledButStrong: [[spoiler: A case could be made, since in their duel Black's winning for most of it despite them supposedly being equally powerful and Shadow Moon actually being armed. The tide only turns when the Creation King makes it seem like the spell's been broken over him, letting Shadow Moon get in a devastating surprise attack. Makes sense when you consider that Shadow Moon spends most of the show in a coma while Black's been sharpening his fighting skills on monster after monster.]]
