A Black Assassin from the back.

Black Assassin looks like a more endurance version of the Black Warrior. It has three horns on the head, with an orange suit that extends to the shoulders. It also has a small tail on its back. Its skin color is the same as the Black Warrior, but with orange-red shades from the ankles to the feet, and from the humerus to the hands.


Black Assassins are powerful Black Arms that have the ability to teleport, but between smaller spaces. Black Doom says that they are easy to contain, meaning that it is easy to control them. They usually disappear shortly after being attacked. The Black Assassins are also highly endurance, due to having the orange armor, taking about eight attack by Homing Attack. They are usually armed with Refractors.
