Blackmail (ブラックメイル or ブラックメール), english name Blackram, is the first DVL-type Medarot, which bears resemblance to a goat.
Blackmail's resemblance to a goat might have something to do with the fact it is a devil Medarot. Despite that it is a really strong Medarot, but incapable of defending itself. Its Parts deal a massive ammount of damage, but as all of these use Berserk attacks, Blackmail is left unable to defend and, if any Medarot survives its hand-to-hand attacks, it has a chance to land a deadly blow on it. It doesn't help to its defenses that its Parts have little armor, though (well, only in Medarot 4, in most games, he has maximum armor).
Careful, though, despite his attacks being Berserk, the success rate is enough to eliminate poorly-armored Medarots, like Chinpet.
Its name comes from the english words black and mail. However it must be noted that in japanese there are two ways of writing its name, and both are accepted: ブラックメイル burakkumeiru and ブラックメール burakkumeeru.
In the animeIt appeared once, when a gang of Medarotters, The Rockers, were attacking other Medarotters and getting their Parts. As they had Hellphoenix and Blackmail, they could deal a lot of damage to most Medarots, which were unable to defend theirselves. Two of The Screws gang bought a Death Bomb part, which was later stolen by The Rockers and then wore by one of the Blackmails they had. In the dub they mistakenly named Blackmail's specialty as Bombarder because of this. However, when they were attacking Arika's Brass, Ikki appeared with his new Metabee, easily defeating The Rockers' Medarots.
Blackmail became more prominent in Medarot Damashii, as one of Mystery Medarotter's opponents.
Blackmail is the weakest DVL-type medarot in the anime, being available for sale, unlike his successors Belzelga (which is a Prototype medarot - even though the Roborobo Gang somehow acquired 3 of them) and Blossomail (which is a Death Medarot).
In the games
In Medarot 4
It appears after the game's final chapter, as a wild Medarot who is rampaging over. It is later found at a lab's last floor underground in Ryuutou, where the player can fight it as many times as needed.
