Black Lectroids are a racial subdivision of the Lectroid species which appeared in the 1984 movie The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension.

Unlike their Red counterparts, Black Lectroids are more peaceful and democratic. However they are still capable of ruthlessness when needed, as they threatened to instigate a nuclear war on Earth if Buckaroo Banzai failed to stop hated Red Lectroid leader John Whorfin. Fortunately, Team Banzai was able to destroy Whorfin and the grateful Black Lectroids called off their attack.

In their human disguises, Black Lectroids appeared as African-American humans and generally spoke with Jamaican accents. Like the Reds, all Black Lectroids had the first name John.
