Behold, the wrath of Black Arms!


Black Doom, Shadow the Hedgehog

The Black Bull (ブラックブル Burakku Buru?) is character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It was massive creature, and one of the Black Arms.

Appearance[]

The Black Bull resembles a cacodemon, having a large black and gray blubbery body with black and red wings protruding out of it. Spikes are present around the Black Bull's body and wings. Its face is red surrounding its singular green eye and has white fangs. It also has two additional fanged mandibles on either side of its mouth.

History[]

Shadow the Hedgehog[]

When Shadow the Hedgehog threatened Doom's Eye over the ownership of the third Chaos Emerald in Lethal Highway, Doom's Eye summoned the Black Bull to attack Shadow and Sonic the Hedgehog.

Later on, after Shadow confronted Doom's Eye in Death Ruins, Doom's Eye suggested that Shadow should rest for tomorrow's "ritual" before leaving and summon the Black Bull to attack Shadow.

Powers and abilities[]

The Black Bull is able to conjure fire to attack its enemies, be it breathing fire or shooting out fireballs and rings of fire. It is also capable of flight.

The Black Bull is also quite resilient as it its large blubbery body protects it from any harm.

Battle[]

Lethal Highway[]

Boss guide[]

The Black Bull appears as a boss in Shadow the Hedgehog after completing any mission in Lethal Highway. The guide is Sonic the Hedgehog.

Boss guide[]

Black Bull uses two main attacks; either it shoots fireballs towards Shadow or breathes fire at the ground, having it spread out in a ring of flames to try and hit Shadow with. In both cases, Shadow has to damage its only weak point - its eye. The player can use the Homing Attack or weapons to damage it. During the battle, the player can use Black Wings to damage Black Bull's eye with Homing Attacks or they can defeat the Black Warriors and use their weapons to damage Black Bull. Also, using Shadow's Chaos Control via Hero Shadow would slow down the Black Bull and the clock for an easy A-Rank.
