"Calypso, where did you go?!"
—Black, Twisted Metal: Black

Twisted MetalEdit


Though not known yet, it is quite possible that Black from first Twisted Metal is the same one from Twisted Metal: Black. A creature created by Mr. Ash, it is powerful enough to destroy the world. If it is Black (the driver of the vehicle Manslaughter), then he was quite possibly stolen by Calypso to go to the Twisted Metal: Black universe (as stated in Twisted Metal: Head-On) and take out the other Calypso.

Twisted Metal: BlackEdit


In this game, the vehicle Manslaughter is driven by a man named Black. His face is completely covered (except for his eyes) by a thief mask with two zippers (looking almost like a gimp mask), one going along the middle of the top of his head and the other across his mouth. There is no information regarding his story, nor any connection with the other contestants.

Wish: Kill Calypso.

Voice actor: Unknown


Black is on a mission for another person to locate and murder Calypso. However the person who sent him has never before been seen, or why exactly he is doing this mission. According to the original Twisted Metal created in the year 1995, In TM: Black the entire storyline is darker, and is rerferred to as a "alternate universe," than towards the other Twisted Metal games. As stated, it is because it is all in Needles Kane's head. But there is even more to TM: Black. BLACK, driver of Manslaughter, made an appearance in Twisted Metal 1, Darkside's driver Mr. Ash's "lost" ending. In that ending he wants his demon "black" back, which makes one believe Mr. Ash is Satan. When he gets Black back, Calypso gets very upset. This is because Black is sent on a mission to kill a darker, more evil Calypso in the "Black" universe.

Manslaughter (Black) - Twisted Metal Black

Twisted Metal: LostEdit

Not much is changed about Manslaughter in Twisted Metal: Lost. The only difference is that an attempt at a story for him was added:

No one knows where Black comes from, but he seems incapable of dying, and he has only one goal: to kill Calypso. The latest rumor is that Black actually comes from a parallel universe where a different, more colorful Calypso wants to use Black to murder his darker twin.

However, seeing as how Twisted Metal: Lost was never completed, this story is not considered canon.

TM Lost Manslaughter


  • In the first Twisted Metal, Mr. Ash, wanted to take back what's HIS, a demon named Black. Mr. Ash was the one who created Black.
  • The bomb that brings down Calypso's hideout in Black's Twisted Metal: Black ending is, apart from the 'loving' note Calypso adds to it, almost identical to the one that John Doe's doomsday gang planted in the medical research plant. Whether this is a simple design choice or implication that Calypso was behind the plot is left up to the player to decide.
