Black Bird is the boss of stage 5 in Raiden II.


The Black Bird is an aerial battleship. The fight consists of three phases:

  • On the first phase, you fight a jet bomber as it starts taking flight. It has various pieces with guns which can be destroyed, as well as a central rotating gun which is the weak spot.
  • After the jet bomber is destroyed, a smaller blue ship will come out of it's wreckage. Like the first phase, it has destroyable guns and wings as well as two guns which aim at the player.
  • Destroying all parts of the blue ship will reveal and even smaller red ship. Unlike the other phases it has no destroyable parts, attacking with it's two frontal guns and a central rotating gun.
