Hero Overview

If the world chooses to become my enemy, I will fight like I always have!
~ Shadow before defeating Mephiles.
Time to unleash the ultimate power!
~ Super Shadow.
I am Lancelot, King Arthur's closest and most trusted Knight. I am also the greatest of all the Knights of the Round Table. I shall strike down all that dare do harm to my king.
~ Shadow as Lancelot.
That was a fake.
~ Shadow in Sonic Forces

Shadow the Hedgehog is one of the major characters of the Sonic the Hedgehog video game franchise and Sonic's arch rival.

He was created as the "Ultimate Lifeform" by Professor Gerald Robotnik. Shadow is immortal, however that doesn't mean that he does not feel pain. Shadow is ageless as well. Since his debut, Shadow has appeared in a multitude of games, television shows, and comic books. Shadow is Sonic's arch-rival yet frenemy and Rouge and Omega's best friend.

His past was almost a complete mystery until the game Shadow the Hedgehog revealed the events surrounding his creation. In contrast to Sonic, Shadow is typically portrayed as a tortured, or a renegade who can just as easily serve the forces of evil as those of good. However, he does what he needs to do to accomplish what he knows to be right. According to an official poll, Shadow is the second most popular character in the series, second only to Sonic himself.

In his appearances, Shadow is the main antagonist-turned-anti-heroic deuteragonist in Sonic Adventure 2; a supporting protagonist in Sonic Heroes and Sonic Rivals; the protagonist in his own titular game of the same name, Sonic Rivals and its sequel; one of the two deuteragonists (alongside Silver the Hedgehog) of Sonic the Hedgehog 2006; and a major character of Sonic and the Black Knight as Lancelot, Sonic Free Riders, Sonic Colors, Sonic Generations, and in Sonic Forces, as well as the protagonist in its DLC pack Episode Shadow. He also appears as the secondary antagonist-turned-supporting character in the anime series Sonic X and a minor antagonist in the Sonic Boom spin-off cartoon franchise.

He is currently voiced by Kōji Yusa in the Japanese version, and by David Humprey, Jason Griffth, and Kirk Thornton in the English version.


Shadow was born 50 years before Sonic Adventure 2, with a project called Project Shadow in the works.


Shadow is mysterious, cold, and initially vengeful, before turning to the side of justice. He usually acts with cool and businesslike indifference, only occasionally showing his vulnerable side. He is rarely seen with others for an extended period of time and usually distances himself from essentially everyone. He is usually soft-spoken, silent, and only speaks a few words before a fight. However, Shadow never bluffs. If he makes a threat, he has every intention of carrying it out.

Shadow's personality is the total opposite of Sonic, because while Sonic is carefree, playful, and a joker, Shadow is violent, ruthless, and aggressive. However, like Sonic, Shadow can be extremely arrogant, often belittling his opponents and insulting their lack of strength. He believes no one can beat him, and tends to see anyone as a fool for challenging him. Shadow also has a ruthless and merciless edge in combat that all other characters in the series lack, and displays a natural "killer instinct".

Shadow's infamous ruthlessness and aggression lead to fear and nervousness that inhibits characters from his unshakable intent or sheer power in combat. Numerous characters from the Sonic series have shown absolute dread from encountering Shadow. Shadow's enemies never treat him lightly; he is one of the very few people Sonic takes seriously and acts hostile towards.

Alongside his dark and violent demeanor, Shadow can be smug and stubborn. He often displays a vain and sarcastic sense of humor, and always speaks his mind no matter how cold it may be. He is also one of the more intelligent and logical characters. He was the only one who saw through Mephiles’s deception in Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 and was the mastermind behind Eggman’s plan in Sonic Adventure 2.

On occasion, Shadow appears to have some degree of mental instability. This is demonstrated by his instances of post-traumatic flashbacks to Maria's face before and during the events of Shadow the Hedgehog, though it could be argued that they were simply an effect of his amnesia. Another example could be that in many games Shadow is featured in, he pursues his foes with disturbing determination; that is to say, he'll go to any length to accomplish something he desires or feels should be a certain way, no matter what the cost. In his own game, he also showed a rather coarse language.

Shadow also possesses some sense of identity, as evidenced when after falsely being told that he isn't the Ultimate Lifeform due to a lab report, he states to Rouge that even if his memories were fake, he is still Shadow the Hedgehog. Similarly, in Sonic Heroes, during the Egg Fleet level, he mentions that even without his memories, he is still the Ultimate Lifeform, Shadow the Hedgehog. These qualities make him rarely susceptible to being manipulated by other forces.

Although he does come off as somewhat cold and apathetic, Shadow is extremely compassionate and does care for the well-being of others. When Omega begins his attack in Sonic Heroes, Shadow could have easily forgotten about Rouge and engaged Omega without defending her. Instead, Shadow saves her from Omega, despite having absolutely no memory of her. He was also shown to be legitimately shocked when he learned that his goal of gaining the Chaos Emeralds to restore his memories was manipulated by Black Doom to wipe out humanity.

Likewise, when the GUN Commander finally confronts him with his memories of Shadow's nightmarish creation, Shadow agrees to face judgment if he was indeed responsible for the ARK massacre 50 years ago.

Despite being a loner, Shadow is also very protective of his friends, like in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, where he went looking for Omega when he was missing and was also quite enraged when he found out that the Marauders had been hurting Omega, and agreed to join Sonic and his friends to get revenge for what they did to him.

Shadow brushes off most kindness or sympathy that is sent his way; in Sonic Heroes, when Rouge showed concern for Shadow when he saw a broken android, Shadow curtly brushed her concern away. Also, in Shadow the Hedgehog, after Sonic suggested some "friendly competition", Shadow bluntly rejected his offer. At times, however, Shadow is also capable of showing gratitude. In Sonic Adventure 2, after Amy made him remember his promise to Maria, Shadow told her that he is keeping his promise both to Maria and her. Also, in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006), when Rouge told him that she would always be by his side, he acknowledged her.

Even though Shadow often fights for the greater good, he is considered an anti-hero for the most part due to his morality. He does whatever is necessary to get what he wants or feels is right, though this enthusiasm causes him to take risks and jump into situations without fully thinking it through. Regardless, Shadow does have his moments of selflessness, helpfulness, and heroism. He nearly gave his life at the end of Sonic Adventure 2 to save Earth and helped Silver uncover the truth of the Solaris Project, after saving Sonic from Silver.


Normal Form

Shadow is a black spotted Hedgehog. He sports red highlights in his spines, and they are turned upward, similar to Sonic's when in his Super state.

Super Form

Shadow has Lemon/Yellow Fur. He still retains his red highlights in his spines, but his speed and abilities are greatly enhanced, similar to Sonic in his Super state.

Powers and abilities

Chaos Energy Manipulation

Shadow's trademark ability. He can use Chaos energy in various ways, such as in energy bursts, time-stopping, teleporting, defending, increasing his stats, and many other ways. This power can be upgraded if Shadow removes his Inhibitor Rings, which increases his power so great that he could destroy an entire army of perfect clones of a time demon; However, his stamina depletes much faster than normal.

Gravity Manipulation

Shown in Sonic Free Riders, Shadow can control gravity to dive and to make maneuvers in his Extreme Gear.

Space-Time Manipulation

Shadow can alter space-time, allowing him to stop the time, teleport, distort it and to create dimensional/chaotic rifts. He's also able to move freely while everything is motionless for a brief period giving him the advantage of time.

Minor Super Strength

Shadow has shown great strength, being able to lift heavy concrete plates and to break solid metal with strong attacks.

Super Speed

Shadow is one of the fastest characters of all franchises, being able to par with Sonic. His max normal speed is the speed of light, and he can surpass it if he transforms.

Gigantic Resistance

Shadow is very resistant to damage, shown in feats such as surviving from a fall from space to Earth, being shot multiple times, being struck by a gigantic robot, and many other things. Shadow can hold his own with most enemies and is as durable as Sonic is.

Proficient Gunman

Shadow is very proficient in using guns, being able to effectively aim and shoot at insane speeds. He's also able to use different varieties like machine guns and handguns.

Skilled Swordsman

Shadow is apt to use swords and katanas as weapons since he managed to defeat many G.U.N. agents, Eggman robots, and Black Arms aliens using swords. He's able to go head-to-head with Sonic although with the latter winning Shadow still showed prowess.

Master hand-to-hand combat

Shadow is master at the art of physical damage with his bare hands, having his fighting style, depicted as brutal and quick, with swift punches, karate chops, and roundhouse kicks as part of his arsenal.

Skilled Biker

Shadow is a skilled motorcycle/bike user and can drive better than many people. He's also able to do many stunts like jumping with it or spinning as well.

Homing Attack

Although not used often, Shadow has a homing attack just like Sonic and works just as efficiently.


Shadow can, currently, transform into three (canon) forms: Dark Shadow (boosts his attack, grants infinite ammo to any weapon that he is currently using, and allows him to keep using Chaos Blasts; He needs one Chaos Emerald and to be enraged), Hero Shadow (boosts his space-time manipulation, allowing him to teleport to very far distances and to stop time for a longer time (?); He needs a Chaos Emerald and to be calm) and Super Shadow (needs all 7 Chaos Emeralds; Gives him 100% physical damage reduction, faster than light speeds and many other abilities, such as major super strength).


Inhibitor Rings

Shadow has rings that control his power around his wrists and on the socks. If he removes those rings, his power increases greatly, but he loses much more stamina too.

Darkness/Air Shoes (Extreme Gear)

Shadow has shoes that can make him hover around the ground, and that allows him to skate rather than run, granting him more durability on races, but he is slower on some types of terrain.

The ARK was the first space colony created by mankind. Not many people know that the ark contained a top secret research facility where weapons of mass destruction were being created. This is one of them. A weapon capable of destroying an entire planet... code named: The Eclipse Cannon.
Eggman: Destroying an entire planet, was this my grandfather's legacy?
Shadow: But, it's been deactivated for sometime, now. To reactivate it, large amounts of energy are necessary. (...)
Eggman: Oh... So THAT'S Why we needed the Chaos Emerald!
Shadow: Exactly. To reactivate the machine, We need the seven Chaos Emeralds. Once you have that, then you'll have the ultimate power of destruction to use as you please. And then... The world could be yours!

You never cease to surprise me, blue hedgehog. I thought that capsule you were in exploded in space.

Before this is over... I'll show you the true power of CHAOS CONTROL!
~ Shadow, just before his second fight with Sonic.
Impossible...! I am the ultimate life...

It's all going according to plan. There's no reason for me to help them. Besides, there's no way to save anyone.
~ Shadow trying to ignore.
That's what I've promised her. And I must keep that promise. That's what Maria wished for.

Shadow the Hedgehog... Why does that name haunt me...? It's the only thing I can remember... And... that gruesome image...
~ Suffering from amnesia, his own game.
Hmm. Look how pathetic they are! I don't have time for these humans.
~ Witnessing the arrival of the Black Arms.
Just what was that all about? If he says he knows the truth about who I am... Then like it or not, I have to believe him. The only way I'm going to get the secrets to my past is to get those Chaos Emeralds!
~ From the prologue of his own game.
You might look like me, but I know you're just a fake.
~ In multiplayer battle mode.
(cackling) The pieces are coming together. This ultimate life form they keep referring to is the black hedgehog, and he... Died! And I'm it's copy. I must be the android Dr. Eggman created. And it's clear what needs to be done! Doctor... You're going straight to the place you've created me from.
~ Learning who he actually is and ready to drive Eggman out for creating him.
A Chaos Emerald? You've gotta be kidding me, guys! This is like taking candy from a baby, which is fine by me!
~ Before taking a hidden Chaos Emerald on board Tails' spaceship.
I'll be there Maria! I swear! Whatever it takes, I'll take care of the ARK and the professor!
~ Promising Maria to save the ARK from the Artificial Chaos.

~ Shadow to Black Doom before he puts an end to him.
Goodbye forever, Shadow the Hedgehog.
~ Abandoning his past.
My assignment was to rescue you, nothing more.

Ha! There's no strength in numbers!
~ Destroying enemies.
Who are you? And how do you know my name?
~ Meeting strangers who know him.
Same to you.
~ As Sonic warns Shadow to not be late.
~ Shouting at Rouge to stay away from the Chaos Emerald because Iblis is emerging.
Shadow: That's absurd. Whatever it is you wanna do, you can do it alone.
Mephiles: You forgive humanity this folly then?
Shadow: I determine my own destiny.
~ Confronting Mephiles.
Don't bother to try and deceive me. I know who I am!
~ In the beginning of the first fight with Mephiles.
I'm Shadow. Shadow the Hedgehog.
~ Introducing himself in Sonic's way.
Don't bother. With a Chaos Emerald's power, I control time and space. You can't break free.
~ About Chaos Control.
Shadow: Mephiles isn't trying to help you create a better future, he's trying to eliminate the past.
Silver: What?! What are you talking about?
Shadow: To discover what happened, it seems we must see what took place ten years ago. Follow me if you want the truth.
~ Shadow telling Silver that Mephiles is lying to Silver.
We'll have to split up. I'll pursue Mephiles.
~ Shadow demanding Silver to find their own target from the accident.
You have no desire for revenge. You only crave destruction. Your only lust is to fuel Iblis until there is nothing left of time itself.
~ Shadow to Mephiles.
Certainly, It might have been possible, if he was still alive.
~ Mourning Sonic.
The time space rift is expanding. There's no more time, I need to hurry.
~ In the beginning of the final act in End of the World.
They have no idea how unfortunate they are!
~ Taunting the Babylon Rogues, Sonic Free Riders.
Three person team? I could've won that by myself.
~ Shadow thinking about having three people in a team after winning a race.
This had to be a mistake! How could I lose!
~ After being beaten by the Babylon Rogues the third time.
If you don't believe me, let's go again.
~ after winning a race
This victory will be an honor of our fallen comrade.
~ Shadow claiming that defeating Team Rose will honor the broken E-10000B in Team Dark's story.
They'll witness the true speed!
~ At the start of a race.
Hmph, finally. (...) Didn't think I'd find you still hanging around here.
~ Shadow meeting Sonic and Tails at Eggman's incredible interstellar amusement park in Sonic Colors.
You're finally here, Sonic. I don't know where we are, nor do I care. This is where I finish you, Sonic.
~ Approached by Sonic for the first time, Sonic Generations.
Hah, back for more, Sonic? Guess you never learn your lesson.
~ Approached by Sonic again.
Why you...!
~ Losing rings when hit by Sonic.
Eat THIS!!
~ Throwing Chaos Spears after getting two to three energy cores.
Get lost.
~ Taunting Sonic
You've got this, Sonic!
~ Cheering the two Sonics up.
This one looks like fun.
~ Demanding that Sonic's friends will help the two Sonics.
Let's finish this one off quick!
~ Ready to fight the Time Eater.
Sonic, you can switch with the Y/Triangle Button.
Sonic, attack with the A/Cross Button.
Sonic, press LB and RB/L1 and R1 Buttons at the same time to combine your powers.
Quickly rotate the left stick to escape.
Switch and go after it!
~ When the Time Eater changes areas.
It's attacking!/Look out!/It's a warping arm attack!
~ Watching an arm warp out and in.
That's a homing shot!/Be careful, Sonic!
~ About a shot that tracks Super Sonic.
You won't be able to move if that gets you!
~ About the restraint trap.
Keep dodging or you'll be crushed!
Charge into the core!
Hey, don't let your guard down, now.
~ After the first and third hits.
Time energy is building up!
Time's going to slow down!
The time flow will be restored!
Incoming laser!
What's wrong? Tired of being so weak?
~ Shadow's all-star move, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.
Someone needs to be taught his place.
~ Shadow's all-star move.
It was one month before the doctor took over the world. The first time I encountered... him.
~ Shadow telling us his story in the beginning of the prequel of Episode Shadow.
Hmph, should've hired some defense squads for the defense squad, eh, doctor?
~ Teasing Eggman for hiring Jackal Squad.
Worthless. Don't show your pathetic face around me ever again.
~ Shadow after defeating Infinite since a couple of months ago, Sonic Forces.
I can't imagine the doctor would do something like that without reason. (...) Yeah... looks like this won't be your garden variety recon mission. (...) I'm more than enough on my own. I'll handle things my way. (...) Cut the chatter, I'm on my way.
~ Shadow in the intro of Episode Shadow.
Got it!
~ Following orders in his own game, and Sonic Forces.
You should've known better than to send Omega an op like this.
~ Shadow disappointed about Omega going on ahead of him.
Already on it! Heh, I knew it. So much for recon!
~ Following Rouge's orders as Rouge lost Omega's signal.
Omega, what happened? What's going on over there?!
~ Trying to provide support to Omega.
What is going on here...?
~ Approaching to Omega's destination.
I don't know you. And the only thing of no consequence around here is that big mouth of yours.
~ Shadow having forgotten the first time he met Infinite.
What the-! Where am I? That guy... What happened to Infinite?
~ Shadow confused about who's Infinite.
This is where Omega was destroyed... but there's no sign of him here.
~ Finding where Omega disappeared.
Ugh... What is this? My head...!
~ Hearing "I am not weak" echo through his mind.
Ngh... What...? Where? I'm back here? No, is this an illusion?
~ After escaping virtual reality.
Sonic? What are you plotting? (hears an explosion) What--IS this...?! STOP!! WHERE DO YOU THINK YOU'RE GOING, INFINITE!?
~ Realizing Infinite's going up against Sonic and chases after him.
Rgh! Withdrawing now! What's the meaning of all this?
~ Shadow before escaping the collapsing facility.
Rouge, are you telling me the truth?
~ While Rouge is explaining what happened.
What is it, Rouge? What happened?
~ When Rouge shouts his name to get over here.
That was a fake.
~ After saving Sonic's life from his duplicate.
Shadow: Infinite can create virtual reality projections. They have mass and form, but no heart and soul.
Sonic: Virtual Reality? So all those familiar faces who were a part of Eggman's army...
Shadow: Replicas. The problem is, they may not be real, but their powers are as formidable as the originals. According to Rouge, Infinite can create unlimited numbers of them.
Sonic: So fight after fight, he can just keep cranking up counterfeits?
Shadow: Exactly. As it stands, there's no way we can win this.
Sonic: Of course we can win this! We always do! We just haven't figured that part out, yet.
~ Shadow to Sonic.
This should effectively put a stop to the doctor's greatest weapon.
~ After the Death Egg blows up.
There's no more time. We have to break into the fortress now.
~ Before the final battle begins.
The Doctor hasn't given up. Don't let your guard down yet.
~ At the beginning of the Imperial Tower.
You deserve that!
~ attacking someone in Team Sonic Racing

In his Super Form

Sonic, leave it to me, I'll destroy him!
~ Super Shadow against the Finalhazard.
Here I come, you creep!
~ Super Shadow at the beginning of his turn.
He's still very powerful! What kind of monster is this? How are you doing, Sonic?
~ Super Shadow commenting the Finalhazard.
Hahaha, Sonic! I think I've discovered what the ultimate lifeform is... it might be you!
~ Super Shadow late in the battle against the Finalhazard.
Maria... watch me. I will fulfill your wish!
~ Shadow's determination.
I must destroy all the evil the Professor has created.
~ Super Shadow after defeating the Finalhazard.
Now, Sonic!
~ Super Shadow before casting Chaos Control with Super Sonic together.
This is the end of you, and the end to my cursed past!
~ Super Shadow after defeating Devil Doom.
Only one thing left to do... To put the past behind me!!
~ Super Shadow as he sends the Black Comet back into space
A Super-Dimensional being… Heh. This might even be a fair fight!
~ Super Shadow when first facing Solaris.
No, it's not over yet!
~ Super Shadow after defeating Solaris for the first time.
I will release you from the chains of your past!
~ Super Shadow When attacking Solaris.
Time to unleash the ultimate power!
~ Super Shadow.

As Lancelot

The king's orders are absolute, Gawain.
~ Lancelot to Sir Gawain when Gawain questions the King's orders.
Shadow: I have found you, apprentice knight, enemy of my King!
Sonic: Who the heck are you? Shadow?
Shadow: I am Lancelot, Knight of the Round Table. I challenge you to a duel!
~ Lancelot's first words during Sonic's first encounter with Lancelot, and introducing himself in the first fight against Sonic.
What shall it be? Will you abandon your sword and flee?
~ Lancelot when beginning to fight Sonic.
Very well, then! Brace yourself, Knave the Hedgehog!
~ Lancelot after Caliburn tells him that Sonic's name is Knave.
Now we shall see what you can do.
~ Entering into battle against Sonic.
Knave the Hedgehog, eh? A fitting name, I'd say.
~ Lancelot teasing Sonic.
Are you truly a knight? You seem more like a court jester.
~ Lancelot fighting Sonic.
I was far too careless. Tsk...
~ Lancelot after losing to Sonic after their first fight.
I thought I was the Ultimate Knight...
~ Lancelot after losing to Sonic after their second fight.
We have orders from the king. Have you any last words?
~ Lancelot to Merlina the Wizard.
For the kingdom and its people!
~ Lancelot and Gawain when they retrieve their swords.
Anyone who can remain hidden from me can rightfully boast a great deed.
~ When starting a "find the hidden fairies" mission.
Time to fly!
~ During the "Reach the Goal" mission in the Shrouded Forest.
There is nothing that I cannot do.
~ While fighting during a mission in Great Megalith.
A stone? In the Dragon's lair?!
~ When starting the "Reach the Goal" mission for the Dragon's Lair.
A battle against a dragon? This is going to be interesting indeed.
~ After encountering the dragon in the Dragon's Lair.
You are the one and true king Arthur?!
~ Lancelot, Gawain, and Percival realizing the truth about Sonic.
Ultimate victory!!
~ Receiving five mastery stars in a mission.
Out of my way!

Theme Samples

Super Shadow


  • Shadow seems to be ambidextrous, as he leads with his left hand in Shadow the Hedgehog and uses his right hand in the Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) and other games.
  • It's unknown what Shadow does in his spare time.
  • Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) is the only game where he and Sonic worked together without any arguments.
  • Shadow (along with Knuckles) was supposed to appear in Sonic Unleashed but was scrapped (for unknown reasons). However, in one of Brenda's interview questions asking what coming from the planet's core, the player can have Sonic incorrectly answer 'Shadow the Hedgehog'.
    • Coincidentally, in Sonic Generations, Sonic can fight Shadow for the fourth Chaos Emerald (if the character defeats Perfect Chaos beforehand).
  • Shadow is one of the older characters in the series (chronologically being 50-years old). However, since he was stuck in suspended animation for most of his life and possesses eternal youth he is physically and arguably mentally 16 years old.
  • Shadow also appeared in the Flash movie "Sonic: Nazo Unleashed" and the upcoming movie "Return of Nazo" created by Chakra-X, where he is helping Sonic and his friends to save the world from the villainous hedgehog, Nazo.
  • Shadow is a Helper in LEGO Dimensions
