Sonic the Hedgehog

Shadow the Hedgehog is the arch-rival of Sonic the Hedgehog. Shadow made his first appearance in Sonic Adventure 2.

He was created as the "Ultimate Lifeform" by Professor Gerald Robotnik using the DNA and blood of Black Doom. Shadow is immortal, and does not age. Since his debut, Shadow has appeared in a multitude of games, television shows, and comic books. His past was almost a complete mystery until the game Shadow the Hedgehog revealed the events surrounding his creation. In contrast to Sonic, Shadow is typically portrayed as an anti-hero, or a renegade who can just as easily serve the forces of evil as those of good.

In M.U.G.E.N, Shadow has been made by several creators, but two that stand out are MUGENHunter's and ABAB's. MUGENHunter made two versions of Shadow. His second version was edited by Shiruzato.

This version of Shadow uses custom sprites, a four-button layout and The King of Fighters-style gameplay, like MUGENHunter's other characters. He has moderate comboability, but a low damage output and almost no projectiles.


Dylanius9000's version


While this version uses the sprites from MUGENHunter's second version, his gameplay is completely different, having Veanko's gameplay style. Ironically, he actually relies on projectiles rather than lacking them. He also seems to have learnt some moves from Dio Brando. OW THE EDGE...
