Pitch Black II was a Mountain Dew flavor released for a limited time during the Halloween season in 2005. It was the sequel to 2004's grape-flavored Pitch Black. Its tagline was "A blast of grape flavor with a sour bite with other natural flavors."
Pitch Black II used the exact same dark purple, grape-flavored formula as the original Pitch Black, but with a "real person bite" added. Many describe it as tasting like candy, adding to its Halloween theme.
- Pitch Black II was one of six grape Mountain Dew flavors. (See "Related Flavors" in the infobox above). With the re-release of Pitch Black, Supernova, and Typhoon in the Back by Popular DEWmand promotion, it's possible that Pitch Black II might be brought back to shelves in the future along with other discontinued flavors.
- Pitch Black II was the only sequel to a soda that Mountain Dew has ever made
- The Creature From The Black Lagoon or "Gillman" was somewhat of a mascot for Pitch Black & Pitch Black II as it appeared in a number of advert pieces holding the soda.
