Shadow (Forces)

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

All Hail Shadow! Heroes rise again! Obliterating everything that's not your friend! Nothing can stop you now, No ghosts to bring you down! When there's nothing left to lose, You win!
~ All Hail Shadow

I hear no, see no evil. Black writing on the wall.

Unleashed a million faces. And one by one they fall.

Black-hearted evil. Brave-hearted hero.

I am all, I am all, I am.

~ I Am

​With Sonic


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 have genes to cure the deathly ill, specifically Gerald's granddaughter Maria. But before Shadow was able to be shared to the world, Maria was tragically killed. After that, Shadow tried to destroy the world, but eventually saved it instead.
