After Black and Futch retrieved the black dragon orchid, Windy arrived, and, as the two attempted to flee, Windy struck them with a bolt of magic. By the time the two were retrieved by members of the Toran Liberation Army, Black had already passed on.
Even after his death, Black helped the Dragon Knights. Liukan used Black's liver as the final ingredient to make an antidote for the dragons of the Dragon's Den. Futch mourned Black's loss the most and it would take Futch a great deal of time to get over Black's death.
The sound sample used for Black's roars in Suikoden is the cry of an elephant.
