Shadow the Hedgehog
Submitted by: DK3
October 28, 2012
Known as the "Ultimate Life Form", Shadow the Hedgehog is an artificially-created being. By using his patented Hover Shoes, Shadow has the ability to move at incredible speeds that rival those of Sonic, and by using a Chaos Emerald, he can distort time and space through the means of his trademark ability known as "Chaos Control". Shadow debuted in the Sega Dreamcast game Sonic Adventure 2 as Sonic's arch rival and the complete opposite of Sonic in terms of his take on life, however also being very similar in many physical traits as well. Depending on his own desires and needs, Shadow aligns himself accordingly with either Sonic or Dr. Eggman, effectively making him an antihero.

Special Moves
Attack Name Damage Details
Standard Special   Chaos Spear 4% - 6%   Shadow fires a bolt of Chaos Energy forward from a single extended hand. Like Fox's Blaster attack in the Smash Bros. games, Shadow can fire repeated shots of Chaos Energy using this attack. Although alone they are fairly weak, repeated successful bolts can prove to be more effective.
Side Special   Chaos Boost 5% - 16%   Shadow can perform this attack immediately after use, or the player can hold the Special Move button to charge the attack up. Upon use, Shadow will dash forward in a desired, forward direction with incredible speed. The longer the attack is charged for however, the more damage Shadow can deal with this manuever.
Up Special   Chaos Snap 3% - 6%   This ability warps Shadow in any direction determined by the Control Stick a great distance. Shadow moves in a flash of red light as he uses this move. The more this move is used, the shorter distance Shadow will be able to recover. On a new stock, the distance will reset.
Down Special   Chaos Blast 2% - 20%   Shadow will begin storing Chaos Energy within him before being able to release it all at once in an increasing shock wave of energy that can damage any and all opponents caught in its radius. Shadow cannot move while storing or building up energy, so it must be used immediately. If attacked as he charges this attack, Shadow will lose all built up energy and must begin the process again.
Final Smash   Chaos Control ?%   Shadow will use all the Chaos Energy from his Chaos Emerald to completed freeze time across the entire stage. This ability will stop players cold in their tracks and lock them in place, allowing Shadow to attack all his opponents freely and ignore any knockback his attacks would normally cause. This variation of Chaos Control will only last for 6 seconds before time returns to normal.
