Professor Akizuki, Nobuhiko's father, who also happened to be one of Gorgom's scientists, didn't want Gorgom to erase away his children's memories of him. Professor Akizuki interfered in the operation, giving the perfect opportunity for both Kotaro and Nobuhiko to escape. Kotaro managed to escape but not Nobuhiko, who got electrocuted during the interruption of the operation. A Kingstone had already been fitted into Kotaro's body. The evil Gorgom tried to get back the Kingstone from Minami Kotaro. Our hero soon realized that the Kingstone in his body had special and unique powers. Abandoning the name Black Sun, a term which was given by Gorgom for his cyborg form, Kotaro called himself Kamen Rider Black, Kotaro made full use of the Kingstone's powers to transform himself into Kamen Rider Black. With that power, he battled Gorgom and its monsters and hoped to rescue his brother, Nobuhiko one day.
