The Ghost of the Black Samurai was the disguise of Sojo, who worked for Miss Mirimoto. It was all an elaborate ruse to get the Sword of Doom so that they could bring the real Black Samurai back to life, and make it serve them.

Physical appearance

He wore black armor and had red eyes.


He seemed to be determined to steal the sword for himself. However, he was actually merely following Miss Mirimoto's every order.

Powers and abilities

Using a jet-pack, he was able to fly. Also, he was a great swordsman and controlled an army of robotic ninjas to aid him in his plot.

Sojo unmasked.

On the orders of his master, the ghost attacked the training camp with his robotic army of ninjas. By stealing the decoy scroll, Miss Mirimoto was able to send Mystery Inc. to find the Sword of Doom. Sojo followed them, allowing the gang to locate the sword. After attempting to steal it, he crashed and was revealed to be Sojo.

Sojo donned his armor once more when Mirimoto claimed the sword for herself. He stood atop the bridge holding the Sword of Doom. When the real Samurai took possession of the armor, Sojo was blasted out of it and the Black Samurai had returned.[1]

The gang had apparently been given the disguise as a keepsake, but when they were forbade to pursue anymore mysteries after nabbing the wrong guy, this necessitated to remove all trace of their past mysteries, which included having a garage sale of selling off the Samurai mask along with other mementos.[2]
