Tropes that apply to him in general

Tropes exclusive to him as Kamen Rider Black

Battle Hopper

Road Sector


Creation King

Nobuhiko Akizuki/Shadow Moon

  • Abel And Cain: Cain to Kotaro's Abel.
  • Anti Christ: Unlike Kotaro, Nobuhiko ended up become this figure thanks to the brainwashing he received from Gorgom.
  • Big Bad: Once he's revived he assumes leadership of Gorgom.
  • The Dragon: To the Creation King.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Black.
  • Hero Killer: With the help from the Creation King, he has managed to kill Black during their first match.
  • Light Is Not Good
  • Lightning Bruiser: Compared to Black's sleeker appearance, Shadow Moon has more armor-looking in appearance, yet his overall stats are equal to Black.
  • Satanic Archetype: The Century Kings and the Creation King are essentially equivalent to the role of a demon king. This is lampshaded even futher in the manga adaptation by Shotaro Ishinomori where Black and Shadow Moon are addressed as "demon kings" instead of century kings.
  • Shock and Awe: Comes in green, yellow, and red variants.
  • Tragic Villain
  • Unskilled, but Strong: 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.
