The True Courage (本当の勇気 Hontō no Yūki) is the seventeenth episode of Seijuu Sentai Gingaman. This episode features the first appearance of BullBlack, a mysterious Black Knight who will become a wild card associated with Gingaman and Balban's search for the Lights of Ginga.
Ryouma tries to teach a lesson to Yuuta about the meaning of courage as Gingaman tries to deal with a Majin trying to destroy skyscrapers with humanoid machines for the Lights of Ginga.
Yuuta feels like he should do more to help the Gingaman and wants to be a warrior.
Budoh uses the fifth clue to determine that the Lights of Ginga may be hiding inside of a skyscraper building. Thus he sends his next subordinate, who uses mechanical replicas of people implanted with bombs to destroy Tokyo's cityscape to bring the Lights out of hiding.
