The Black Volt[1] (ブラックボルト Burakkuboruto?) is both an enemy and a potential vehicle that appears in Shadow the Hedgehog. They are aerial combat Black Arms equipped with tracking worms. When defeated, Shadow is able to climb onto them and ride them through midair.


Black Volts are powerful version of the Black Hawks. They have the same attributes, but are armed with Worm Shooter that can be used in aerial combats, and they can fire energy waves by tilting and rushing their body.

Black Volts can be used as vehicles as well. To use it in gameplay, the player has to press PSObutton.png/Gamecube X Button.png/XboxB.png to get on it, hold A Button GameCube v2.png/PSXButton.png/XboxA.png to speed up, and press SNNBGAMECUBEDISCO.png/PSSquareButton.png/XboxX.png to fire the Worm Shooter. Each Black Volt has a Health Gauge that depletes whenever it takes damage, until it empties, leaving the player to fall into a bottomless pit. Its health measures can be refilled using Damage Recover. The pilot of the Black Volt cannot ride it indefinitely though, meaning that it will leave the player in some parts of the Stages.
