I swore to Maria I would protect the billions of individuals on the planet below. The people she loved unconditionally. Prepare for your end!
~ Shadow the Hedgehog


Shadow the Hedgehog is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. He is a mobian hedgehog and the end result of Project: Shadow, an effort to create the Ultimate Lifeform. After the project was forcibly shut down by the government, Shadow was put into stasis for fifty years and then awakened by Dr. Eggman, Gerald's grandson, to help him take over the world. Shadow sought instead to destroy the world to avenge Maria, who had been killed during the raid onboard the Space Colony ARK, where they both had lived. However, after realizing he had been led astray by false memories, Shadow would join forces with Sonic the Hedgehog and his allies to save the world, afterwards becoming a hero who helped to save the planet on multiple more occasions.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Spin Attack: Sonic curls into a ball and rams enemies as a concussive force or cutting disk
  • Spin Dash: Sonic curls into a ball and begins spinning rapidly from a stationary position to charge up, then launches forward with enhanced mobility.
  • Homing Attack: An enhanced version of the Spin Attack that attacks opponents with perfect aim from midair.
  • Chaos Spear: Shadow charges raw Chaos energy as a form of electricity into a yellow-green energy construct shaped like a spear, complete with an arrowhead, and then throws it as an energy bolt. Once manifested, the Chaos Spears are substantial enough to be physically grabbed. Can induce paralysis.
  • Chaos Blast: Shadow produces an omnidirectional explosion of Chaos Energy that eradicates anyone or anything caught in it's range. This attack can bypass forcefields and be focused into a beam for more concentrated damage.
  • Chaos Control: Shadow uses Chaos Energy to control the fabric of time and space. He can use this to teleport himself as well as other people and objects, manipulate time by slowing or stopping it, inter-dimensional travel, and time travel. As Super Shadow, this power can be utilized to warp reality to Shadow's whim, potentially on a multiversal scale.
