The Black Legion is a team appearing in the Unreal Tournament series.


Team overview Edit

They are a group of Necris or living dead warriors created by the Phayder Corporation. Highly boosted with inorganic elements, the Necris warriors are able to use nanotechnology like tentacles and vehicles, which can even drain off the energy from their targets

Unreal Tournament Edit

"A powerful team of Necris Phayder assassins that seek to dominate the Tournament. By destroying Xan Kriegor, the corrupt Tournament champion, the Legion believes it can take control of Liandri operations."

  • In Unreal Tournament 2004, both Kragoth and Thannis are only available from the ECE bonus pack. They can be bought by the player for their team if the player has the ECE Bonus Pack installed.
  • In Unreal Tournament 3, Alanna is accessible through the unlock code phayder.
  • The AI bot Samael from Unreal Tournament 3 would later return in Unreal Tournament 4 as a fully-fledged playable character.
