Shadow is an evil entity that takes the form of a dark shade. It can traverse through walls and, in some instances, can take the form and abilities of other creatures.

AppearancesEdit

Castlevania LegendsEdit

Not to be confused with Ghost.

Known in Legends simply as "Ghost", it is one of the most common, and yet most dangerous, enemies in the game. Ghosts appear from the very first stage and keep making a return throughout the Clock Tower, the Cathedral and the hidden stage.

They attack by homing toward Sonia in a somewhat erratic manner, usually in places where mobility is severely compromised. Since they are usually found in numbers and can reach the player directly from above or below, it is sometimes very difficult to attack them.

Castlevania: Harmony of DissonanceEdit

In Harmony of Dissonance, Shadow appears as the boss of the Sky Walkway (Castle B), appearing as a manifestation of Maxim's dark side.

In this version, Shadow first appears as a phantasmagorical face (similar to the Death Fire from Simon's Quest). It is intangible in this state, not being able to harm or be harmed. Not long after its introduction, though, it will shapeshift into the silhouette of one of three possible creatures: a Black Panther, a Moth or an Evil Sword.

Black Panther

Shadow usually starts with this form, which is perhaps the most vulnerable and easiest. The panther only makes runs from one side of the room to the other, occasionally performing leaps in an attempt to catch the hero in midair if they dare to jump too soon.

Moth

As a moth, Shadow flies across the screen, occasionally making slow swoops and sprinkling poisonous dust on its wake, in a very similar way as the second phase of the Princess of Moss boss fight from Bloodlines.

Evil Sword

Shadow's most dangerous form. Taking the shape of a big scimitar, it starts spinning around and chasing after the hero, slashing at anything on its path. Due to its size, it encompasses a large area of the screen, which makes it difficult to avoid sometimes.

The non-infused Axe sub-weapon is especially effective against this form, as the arc it traces allows it to hit this enemy three or even four times per attack.
