Where's that DAMN 4th Chaos Emerald?

Shadow skates to the battlefield saying the dialogue under the name of the entrance.

Special Attacks

Neutral B - AK-47

Shadow pulls out an AK-47 and unloads it. It's a pretty basic gun attack with the bullets being powerful and fast. You can fire up to 6 bullets per round, then wait 2 seconds before you can use it again.

Side B - Dark Rider

Shadow gets on his motorcycle and drives forward at a high speed. When the vehicle makes direct contact with either opponents or walls, it'll spontaneously combust. Like the AK-47, you need to wait 2 seconds to reuse it.

Up B - Chaos Control

Shadow gets out a Chaos Emerald and teleports from one area to the other. There's not much to say about this considering it's a basic teleportation maneuver.

Down B - Chaos Blast

Shadow curls both his hands into fists at the start, then creates an explosion at average size. Be careful since it has some ending lag. However, like a Transformer, there's more to this special attack than meets the eye. Shadow's player display window has an energy bar over it. You can fill it up by dealing damage to opponents or taking damage. Once the meter's full, you can unleash the power. When it's about 25% full, it'll deal 15% damage. When it's about 50% full, it'll deal 30% damage. When it's about 75% full, it'll deal 50% damage. At 100% capacity, it'll be an insta-killer. When the meter isn't at all full, Shadow takes 5% damage from trying.

Final Smash - I'm Going to Destroy this DAMN Planet!

Shadow says that he'll destroy this DAMN planet. After that, a spacecraft appears and the competition has 3 seconds to get inside the ship (move down to do so), leaving only one behind. The fight then proceeds on another stage chosen at random. If it's a 4-way, only 2 can make it. If it's a 3-way, only 1 can make it. If it's a one-on-one, Shadow just blows up the DAMN planet. This move is identical to Jaime Maussan's FS but Shadow does not board the ship and entering the ship is done by a different method

Standard Attacks


Snake Codec

Snake: Phew... So far, so good. Hey, that's-

Colonel: That blue hedgehog again of all places.

Snake: I found you, faker!

Colonel: Faker? I think you're the fake hedgehog around here. You're comparing yourself to me? Ha! You're not even good enough to be my fake.

Snake: I'll make you eat those words!

Colonel: *Laughs* We have our fun from time to time, don't we , Snake?

Snake: We sure do, Colonel. Shadow's a legend, though. I mean, remember that time he shot guns? What a world.

Colonel: Shadow uses an array of unique powers next to his speed. Which is on par with that of Sonic's.

Snake: Hey, that's not his speed. He must be using the Chaos Emerald to warp.

Colonel: Good point. Shadow can unleash a barrage of lightning strikes known as Chaos Spear, and he can even teleport around the stage using Chaos Control. His Final Smash is especially devastating: Chaos Blast. If he's charging this move, you'd better put on your Soap shoes and start running.

Snake: Don't you mean skating? I've always wanted shoes like Shadow. I could just glide through every base. Grind on Metal Gears and ice skating through stealth missions. I wonder if he'll let me try them out.

Colonel: Shadow isn't likely to share anything. He's been known to be a loner, and is even quoted saying humans are "pathetic". That's you too, Snake. You're a human. Even if you did come from a test tube.

Snake: Ow, the edge... Now that hurts, Shadow. The Sonic franchise peaked at Adventure 2, so this is going to be hard for me. But i'm gonna have to take you out, Shadow Moses!

Colonel: Just hit him with a couple of homing attacks.

Snake: Got it.

Character Description

Shadow the Hedgehog (シャドウ・ザ・ヘッジホッグ Shadou za Hejjihoggu?) is a character from the Sonic the Hedgehog series. Shadow is an artificially-created life form. His trademark hover shoes propel him at extreme speeds that rival those of Sonic, and with a Chaos Emerald he has the ability to distort time and space using "Chaos Control." Often referred to as being the "Ultimate Life Form," he is a black and crimson male hedgehog that debuted in Sonic Adventure 2. He resembles Sonic in many ways, such as the ability to travel at incredible speeds. He is Sonic's rival and is the antithesis of Sonic himself in all aspects of his life. He has been featured in a variety of media, including his own self-titled game. Shadow works together with either Sonic's group or Dr. Eggman, depending on what suits his own needs.
