A Black Assassin from the back.
Black Assassins look like a more well-armored version of the
Black Warrior. Each one has three horns on the head and wear an orange backpack-like device on their backs that give them extra endurance. This device has two "horns" that extend from the top. Black Assassins also has a small tail on their lower back.

Black Arm enemies encountered. When facing them, it takes about eight Homing Attacks to defeat them. In terms of attack patterns, they are capable of teleporting across short distances, an ability of which they usually invoke when the playable character attacks them. The Black Assassins also wield Refractors which they will use against the playable character. They are also regularly seen riding Air Saucers to traverse treacherous alien goop. Once a Black Assassin is defeated, they will drop their weapon and/or vehicle, allowing the playable character to use them themselves. They each also grant 400 Hero points upon defeat.

Black Arms solders", suggesting they are rather powerful by Black Arms standards. They are quite durable compared to the rest of their fellow soldiers, and are capable of teleporting short distances.
