Black Guards are the commando elite of Clu's forces and also serve as his personal guard. They are a deadly force to be reckoned with, as they are prepared for any mission with their advanced fighting skills and their sheer numbers. After Rinzler, they are the most vicious programs on the Grid.
Black Guards have red-orange circuitry, and for head-gear they wear jet black helmets that cover the entirety of their faces.
Black Guards are well equipped for combat, regularly being in possession of Batons, Light Grenades, and Identity Discs. Their batons are stored on their arms and are used to expand their armament with various additional weapons such as a sword, or staff, and the two halves can also separate to form a pair of dual nightstick weapons. The grenades are kept within easy reach clamped to their thighs. Outside of the movie canon some Black Guards are also seen wielding a personal riot shield.
Black Guards commonly use Recognizers for transportation, and on occasion will air drop from these aircraft using dorsal TRON chutes attached to their backs. Many Black Guards can use their batons to provide personal transportation by generating Light Cycles, or Light Jets.
