We shall be sealed together in death.
~ The Black Hand's famous quote.

The Black Hand of Sauron is one of the main antagonists, along with Sauron himself, of the 2014 videogame, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, a character made for the game he is one of many similar beings, known as the Black Captians, that act as extensions of Sauron's will.

The Black Hand of Sauron is by far the most powerful and dreaded of all the enemies encountered in the game and is a direct nemesis of the protagonist, being responsible for the murder of his entire family (alongside countless other innocents).

The Black Hand of Sauron is served by an elite group of Uruk orcs known as the Talons of the Black Hand as well as another aspect of Sauron known as The Tower.. there is also a lesser aspect of Sauron known as The Hammer that acts as one of his underlings.

In addition he has a limitless army of orcs under the command of innumerable war-chiefs and encourages them to battle not only enemies but themselves in bloody power struggles that continually shift the way Sauron's armies are structured.
