One of the most coolest,Popular, badass, complex, powerful Sonic Character's this side the Sonic Franchise. Knuckles The Echidna and Metal Sonic have Once Rivaled Sonic The Hedgehog in Speed and Power, but now as time goes by so does most competition. Shadow has proven himself that he's Sonic The Hedgehog's most powerful and Formidible Arch Rival Ever to grace his True Blueness. Shadow is now Sonic's Real True Rival in speed and Power, Shadow can easily match his blue counterpart to last last mile per hour in terms of speed, with the help with his powerful body and hover shoes, He is one of the most fastest Sonic Characters ever. With macthing looks, abilitys, and acrobatic moves, Shadow is to Sonic as Wario is to Mario, a doppleganger character to the Main Character.

Shadow's special ablity and Signature move is Chaos Control, his Chaos powers come directly from the Emeralds he possess (even thought he needs no emeralds to preform these tricks) the choas emeralds amplify his strength and speed ten fold making the After affects of Chaos Control even more deadly.

Born in the Space colony ark, Shadow The Hedgehog is Dr. Gerald Robotnick's greastest creation, he was a benevolent man with his Grandaughter Maria, he wanted to benifit mankind in everyway, he also researches Chaos Emmerald's and Immortality. Soon discovering his Grandaughter had a disease called NIDS, he started working on a project known as Shadow who would later befriend the scientist's granddaughter. Soon after he was created, Shadow and Maria were best friends, But when a Incident happened involing the G.U.N. forces of earth, Gerald was captured and Shadow and Maria were in trouble. Maria had gotten killed by one of the soliders, while Shadow was safe in a cryo tube, due to the sacrifice Maria had done. Shadow 50 years later wanted revenge on the humans that killed Maria in cold blood, Eggmnan soon discoverd that Gerald (his grandfather) had left him a weapon for him to conquer the world, Shadow was that weapon.

In a battle between good and evil Shadow relized Maria wanted peace and happiness not Revenge. So he sacrificed his life to save the planet from the destrution of the ark and his prototype Biolizard.

Shadow's best freinds are, His Rival Sonic sometimes, Rouge The Bat, and E-123 Omega. His personaltiy differs from sonic, He's Depressed, Violent, Calm, Collected, Ruthless, and somewhat cocky. He will do anything to get what he wants.

His popualarity is massive and off the wall, he has so many fans and yet so many hater/dislikers as well. He's with out a doubt is one of the greatest Sonic Characters of all time. The Ultimate LifeForm is Shadow The Hedgehogs. Sonic has met his match.

My name is Shadow The Hedgehog, I'm the world's ultimate lifeform, there's no time for games, farewell.

An emo hedgehog that appears in the Sonic games, who's debut was in Sonic Adventure 2 Battle. He died, then was brought back to please rabid fangirls by a mysterious plot-hole.
He is now known as a gun wielding emo who doesn't give a rat's ass about life. He curses and stuff, and has daily flashbacks that are stupid and annoying. He is a very cliché character in all.
Shadow the Hedgehog is an emo recolour and should die.

Common term reffering to "shadowy" game character who wields guns for the sole purpose of grabbing the attention of shooter fans and nothing more. A Dante wannabe.
"Mario uses a bazooka now? Man he's such a Shadow."

A fictional Emo character that only lonely fangirls who haven't been beaten enough like.
I am Shadow the Hedgehog, and I had to make my own game to prove I'm better than Sonic! This is WHO I AM!

A character added during Sonic's last "alright" days before his descent to shit. It's become a trend to call any dark character emo, so he's no excuse. Get's shat all over by internet trend whores who think it's cool to bash popular stuff. Don't bring up his name unless you want to see 3 pages of bitching and moaning about how he's so emo and stole Sonic's spotlight AND THIS IS WHY SONIC GAMES SUX!!!1111! WHA WHA WHA. Cry sum moar. Sonic's game's have been blowing hard with or without him in it, fanboys.
Dude: Eh, Shadow the Hedgehog's ok, not the greatest character ever though.

Shadow the hedgehog is a new character created by SEGA. He made his first appearence in Sonic Adventure 2 (Sonikku adobencha tsu). I think he's just a FUCKING MISTAKE!! SEGA WENT TO FAR WHEN THEY CREATED HIM. I HATE HIM! It should be Sonic Tails and Knuckles. Only them in the video games.
Some people thinks he's cool . and some fucking hates him!
I fucking hate him!
And i hate all the other characters like Chris and friends and Silver The Hedgehog??? oh god what's next sonic get's a son named Ultra sonic?
But i don't want you to hate Shadow or like him.
You can think as you want.

If SEGA continues to put any more characters like this then i'm gonna quit being a sonicfan.
Person 1: Ya like Shadow the hedgehog?
Person 2: NO!
Person 1: Yeah the classic sonic is the best! ^^.
