The black Shinkansen is called "Phantom" and appears suddenly, breaking through space. It is thought to act as some kind of trigger, as it always appears before the appearance of the unidentified enemy, the Unknown. Its body is enveloped in an eerie aura, appearing and disappearing like a ghost. The front car of the black Shinkansen transforms into the Phantom Shinkalion. The Phantom Shinkalion is capable of versatile combat, making full use of its weapons, the Phantom Dagger, Phantom Blaster, and Phantom Gauntlet. It unleashes powerful slashes with the Phantom Gauntlet Sword, which is a combination of the three pieces of equipment.
