The Black Onyx (ザ・ブラックオニキス) is a role-playing game developed by Bullet Proof Software. It was released, among other consoles and computers, for the SG-1000 in 1987. It was the last SG-1000 game to be released in card form, and the last to be published by Sega, but it is currently unknown as to whether it was the last SG-1000 game. PC-8801 and MSX versions had been released in 1984 and 1985, respectively, meaning this version is unusually late.

The game was followed by The Black Onyx II: Search For The Fire Crystal, which saw its original MSX release in 1984.
