I am Shadow the Hedgehog! The Ultimate Life Form!
~ Shadow introducing himself to Vegeta

Many years ago, Professor Gerald Robotnik endowed me with the power of Chaos Control, a normal creature like yourself doesn't stand a chance against me.
~ Shadow to Sonic in Shadow Knows

Oh my God, I'm glowing! Why am I glowing?!
~ Shadow`s Last words in Shadow VS Mewtwo

I am Shadow the Hedgehog. I am the union of ideals dark and benign but ultimately built in the name of love. I am the Ultimate Life Form. I am the protector of Mobius. Run home to your master and tell him. This is who I am.
~ Shadow

Shadow the Hedgehog is a character from the Sonic the Hedgehog series, and the arch-rival of the titular character. He appears in the 12th episode of DEATH BATTLE!, Vegeta VS Shadow, where he was pitted against Vegeta from the Dragon Ball series. He appeared once again in the 63rd episode, Mewtwo VS Shadow, where he fought against Mewtwo from the Pokémon series. In both appearances, he was voiced by Curtis Arnott (Takahata101).


He was built by Professor Gerald Robotnik as the Ultimate Life Form from Black Arm DNA. Although he is a powerhouse, his initial purpose was to possess genes to cure the deathly ill, specifically Gerald's granddaughter Maria. However, before Shadow was able to be shared to the world, Maria was tragically killed. Because of this, Shadow tried to destroy the world, but thanks to sudden memories of Maria, he eventually saved it instead. Since then, he has helped to save the world on numerous occasions.
