Black King (ブラックキング Burakku Kingu) is one of the residents of the Alien City, and one of Jack's wrestling opponents.
Black King is one of the opponents Jack fights in the alien city gambling den's wrestling matches. Jack states that some time ago, Ultraman killed Black King's friend, which is why Black King hates Shinjiro Hayata, after overhearing that he is the new Ultraman. Black King tries to choke him, but stops when Dan Moroboshi scares him off.
Jack and the SSSP later set up Black King to rampage in the city to force Shinjiro to develop his powers. Shinjiro has no choice but to transform and fight but is initially unable to keep up with the monster's brute strength. He is flung into the crowd and almost kills a little girl, but due to his desire to protect others, he awakened the power of flight and managed to avoid getting anyone killed. Not holding back anymore, he used his newfound power and decapitated Black King.
