|This article is about a/an set of rangers in the Super Sentai series.|
The Black Sentai Ranger (黒い戦隊レンジャー, Kuroi Sentai Renjā) or Black Warrior (白い戦士, Kuroi Senshi) is a position given to a position in some Super Sentai Series. Black usually serves as second-in-command and is always male. It is usually interchangeable with Green, but is also often paired with Green as the additional members to a core team of three. Though Black Rangers are normally in the core team and from the start, 7 are additional Rangers. 4 of those 7 are not in the core team, with one of those 4 being the only Black Sixth Ranger, and the other three of them are Bangai Heroes, with one of them being the Sixth Hero of that season as well. Personality-wise, most Black Warriors tend to be rivals, although some have been powerhouses and a few as childish.
Interestingly, the 4 non-core team Black Rangers have all appeared in series whose predecessors had Black Rangers which were part of the core team.
