FivemanThe fifth born and younger twin brother of Remi. A 20 year old (41 in Gokaiger) Japanese teacher skilled in karate. He has a wide range knowledge of various languages, even alien ones. Despite this, he tends to be childish and reckless. He and Remi were only 1 year old during the attack on Sidon, therefore they continuously suffer for not remembering their parent's faces.
In Episode 17, Fumiya meets a woman named Midori. Unknown to Fumiya, Midori is actually a disguised Doldora who has plans to use him to break the bond of his siblings as Kumorugin uses a mind controlled spider to implant Fumiya's head as it means to brainwash him. Doldora's plans begin to fail after revealing that Fumiya was only pretending to be on her control thanks to his brother Gaku's efforts who also manages to stab the mind controlled spider with a small knife to make him return to normal while being restrained by his siblings, Ken, Kazumi and Remi at night. His siblings also told Doldora that they remain strong for Fumiya as their sibling before confronting Kumorugin as Fivemen.
In Episode 18, Fumiya is revealed to be a shopperholic and he was seen in a various fashionable clothes while handling several shopping bags.

The FiveBlack Ranger Key (ファイブブラックレンジャーキー Faibu Burakku Renjā Kī) is Fumiya Hoshikawa's personal Ranger Key and what became of his powers after he along with the rest of the 34 Super Sentai sacrificed their powers to end the Great Legend War.
This key along with the majority of the Ranger Keys were collected by the Red Pirates and later used by the Gokaigers. The FiveBlack Ranger Key was mainly used by Don Dogoier (Gokai Green), who used it to fight as FiveBlack.
- When the Gokaigers became the Fivemen while fighting a Zangyack force led by Insarn and Barizorg.
- When the Gokaigers became the Fivemen while fighting Zangyack shortly before the team found out that Don was apparently a legendary hero.
The Fiveman keys, along with all the Ranger Keys of the first 33 Super Sentai, were briefly taken by the Black Cross King and turned into Ranger puppets that were fought by the Gokaigers and the Goseigers. The Fiveman keys were defeated by Super Gosei Yellow.
After Zangyack were finally defeated, the Gokaigers gave the Ranger Keys back to their rightful owners. Fumiya received his key and became FiveBlack once more.
Behind the scenes
- While the character of Fumiya is the youngest of the Hoshikawa siblings, his actor Ryouhei Kobayashi is actually the second oldest in the main Fiveman cast, being five years older than Keiko Hayase who played his on-screen twin sister Remi (Five Yellow).
- The head kanji in the name "Fumiya" can be translated into "sentence".
- The symbol on Five Black's helmet is the kanji 語 (go or language), which symbolizes Fumiya's occupation as a Japanese language teacher and his expertise in extraterrestrial communication.
- Although, Five Black is the youngest of the Hoshikawa siblings, he "outranks" both of his sisters by having two white stripes on his visor, as well as two ridges on the "V"-shaped metal plate on his chest. Fumiya is also the third-billed character in the opening credits.
- Fumiya is currently the only Black ranger in an all-sibling sentai series.
- In the RPN-9 version he was remaned as Julio but in the TV5 version it was changed to Fumio.
- In the TV5 version, Fumiya is voiced by Ed Belo who also voices Raita Ooishi from Choujin Sentai Jetman.
- Fumiya's role as a Japanese teacher and his Karate fighting style is later shared by Hideo Shimazu from Capcom's Rival Schools series as Hideo's own fighting style, Shimazu-ryu Karate is closely derived from Ryu's fighting style as Martial arts rooted in Ansatsuken from the Street Fighter series.
