Galran Deathblack Beastmen are alien beast fighters, serving as the apex of Galran technology and dark magic, sent by Honerva against GoLion. Anyone captured and enslaved by the Galran Empire are immediately herded into the arena on Planet Galra where they are forced to fight to the death against the larger, powerful, and deadlier Beastmen who easily kill them before an enthusiastic crowd. Then the slaves are butchered and made into slave stew, a favorite gruesome dish for the Beastmen to eat. Anyone who survives fighting the Deathblack Beastmen are subjected to Honerva's dark magic that changes them into Beastmen to fight GoLion.
Beastmen have a wide variety of origins including: Prisoners forcibly transformed into monsters, Slaves fooled by false promises, Galran army volunteeers, animals that were enhanced, and alien monsters from other planets. They may even be created from pilots.
Despite their wide variety of origins, and physiology Beastmen are connected by the use by the Galran empire, often they are modified such as having guns put into their bodies, and are eventually enlarged by Galra's tech or magic.
Several Beastmen display the ability to think, and even talk. As Princess Fala said "we mustn’t forget that beastmen are living things with feelings just like us."
After the events of episode 31, Galra mostly switched to using the entirely mechanical Galran Mechablack Beastmen, however a living Beastman was often used to pilot the Mechablack Beastmen.
