Black Oaks are giant Black Arms soldiers that appear in Shadow the Hedgehog. These hulking monsters are among the strongest of Black Doom's forces, capable of trampling enemies and swatting vehicles aside with their great strength. Some of them are even tough enough to block incoming gunfire.
The hardy Black Oaks take about seven hits to kill with standard weaponry, but heavy weapons such as bazookas or alien energy weapons can kill them much quicker. The Oaks themselves can carry Black Arms rocket launchers, clubs and swords into battle.
