Shadow Essence is a liquid that, when consumed, affects one's reaction to the Dark/Shadow element. In Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, this is called Resist Dark and causes "damage" by dark attacks to instead increase your health. In Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night, this material raises one's shadow affinity, although it does not help unlock Shadow spells.
