History

Ultraman Dyna

The team itself made their debut when they launched to rescue Ryo and Kariya, whom both piloted a GUTS Eagle Gamma from Clone Daigerun. They used the GUTS Shadow and destroyed the monster. Gondo introduce them to Super GUTS later along with Kenji Fudo, the younger brother of Asuka's late rival, Takeru Fudo. Super GUTS sent Kenji and Shin into space onto an asteroid where Yamazaki's transmission took place. Shortly after the duo landed in a secret hanger, the warhead containing Evolu cells was found. Once Kenji and Shin shot down Zomborg Soldiers, they made their way to the mad doctor only for him to trap Shin and convince Kenji to slide his gun away from him. After Yamazaki and Kenji had a gunfighht and wounded each other from their guns, the mad scientist used the syringe containing Evolu cells and injected it into himself, turning into Zomborg. Ultraman Dyna battle the mutant and finally stopped the missile from reaching Earth. Kenji was alive with his right hand injured. He had changed his view towards Asuka and quit the Black Busters. The Light and Shadow of the Youthful

Despite the team being one of the best attack team in Ultraman Series history, but it defected to a more antagonistic role as seen when Gondo sent them to capture Asuka in order to create Terranoid. However, the team met it's downfall when Zelganoid attacks the TPC Mars base. Though they tried their best to attack Zelganoid with GUTS Shadow's ambush technique, but Zelganoid was able to outsmart the troops. Final Chapter I: A New Shadow

Reika, the last surviving member of Black Buster guided Ryo to Daigo's home where Asuka was sheltered. She gave Ryo her GUTS Shadow in order for her to return to her teammates. Final Chapter II: Solar System Annihilation

What had happened to the division was remained unknown but it can be presumed that it had been disbanded after most of the members founded secretly aided Gondo in his inhumane act or killed in action.

Several members of the Black Buster Corps appeared, but only two were named.
