Black Dragon (黒龍 (ブラックドラゴン) , Burakku Doragon?) is a Tokyo motorcycle gang that has been actively ruling Japan for generations, first established by Shinichiro Sano.[2] In line with the 10th Generation's defeat in a battle against the Tokyo Manji Gang, Black Dragon became a Toman affiliate under the First Division.[3] Its affiliation with Toman would later on serve as an avenue for Takemichi Hanagaki to establish the 11th Generation with Seishu Inui as his right-hand man.[4]

Appearance

Uniform

The First Generation founding members were most often seen wearing black biker outfits similar to the Tokyo Manji Gang's uniform. During the Ninth Generation's rule, Shion Madarame and his underlings wore a white version. Its refashioned design was eventually remodeled once more in the 10th Generation, with Taiju Shiba at its helm, as its members wore uniforms that mimicked military garb, befitting their fearsome image as a warmongering army.

Background

Founded by Shinichiro Sano in his youth, Black Dragon was the top delinquent gang in the Kanto region for generations.[5] It prospered as it upheld the First Generation's virtuous ideals until its Eighth Generation successor, Izana Kurokawa, corrupted its ranks and demolished the First Generation's good faith and morale. Shion Madarame soon inherited Izana's will with the rise of the Ninth Generation and pursued his mission to destroy Manjiro Sano. He was defeated, and Black Dragon fell into ruins.

In an effort to revive the gang, Seishu Inui initially pronounced himself as the 10th Generation founder and later on recruited Taiju Shiba to become its leader. Consequently, Black Dragon was reformed into a militaristic band of warriors until it was wiped out by the Tokyo Manji Gang in the winter of 2005. Its members assembled in Toman's First Division under the command of Takemichi Hanagaki, who later became the president and founder of the 11th Generation, with Inupi as his right-hand.

Structure

Black Dragon has a unique structure with a systematic succession process. It operates through the rise and fall of an "era," called a "generation," that is led by a generational leader, who was handpicked by either his predecessor or the preceding generation's members. At one known instance, it was the founder Shinichiro Sano himself who personally appointed the leader.[6] However, Black Dragon regressed to its original ordination system after his death.[7]

10th Generation Killer Squad

The gang has a total of 11 generations, with the 11th being its last.[8] Each generation is commanded by a generational leader, often addressed as is or "Boss," alongside an active Vice-Leader, with the rest of the gang making up different units and squads.

The First Generation had two known units called the Guard and Special Attack, which were led by two of the generation's founding members.[9] Come the 10th Generation, similar units were established called the Attack Squad and Elite Guard, each one led by a Unit Captain,[10] who also served as the leader's close confidants and direct subordinates.[11] The 10th Generation also had a special active fighting faction called the "Killer Squad."[12]

Taiju defeats Inupi, becoming the 10th Generation leader

Black Dragon manages to sustain its reputation through simple successions. This denotes the preservation of the gang's original values but with the smooth decree and establishment of the succeeding generation through a new leader. However, this method was debarred during the early formation stages of the 10th Generation, in which Seishu Inui challenged Taiju Shiba one-on-one to determine the next generation's leader.[13] Taiju was victorious, which caused Black Dragon to undergo an absolute renovation that changed the gang's image from virtuous to notorious.[14]

While the leader has complete power and authority over his generation, his predecessor may also have a say in his activities. This was observed during Shion Madarame's reign over the Ninth Generation, with Izana Kurokawa monitoring Black Dragon's activities in the shadows despite his recent retirement as the eighth generational leader.[15]
