Tarabar is one of the programmer of the original team.

The Tarabar Edition is an ultra rare prototype version of "Metal Black". Only one unit exists and was saved by the programmer itself. Here are the differences with the final game:
- The Copyright Notice says "For Use in Tomo Only".
- In the first stage, there strange charaters.
- Capsul items exist (A sort of Speed up)
- There is no third and fourth stages.
- The second stage title is 'Extra Stage' and the BGM used is 'Happy New year'.
- In Final stage (third level), a different pattern and different enemies are used.
- The ending is different.
