Ow the Edge (シャドウ・ザ・ヘッジホッグ Shadō za Hejjihoggu?) is a fictional, anthropomorphic black hedgehog from the Sonic the Hedgehog series and the arch-rival of Sonic the Hedgehog



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 antihero, or a renegade who can just as easily serve the forces of evil as those of good. According to an official poll, Shadow is the second most popular character in the series, second only to Sonic.

Shadow is walking around in Westopolis and talks to himself saying that he has to find the remaining Chaos Emerald. He says that if he doesn't have it, the whole planet will be destroyed and that only he can save it. He then uses Chaos Control to teleport away from the scene.


NameHatsune Miku

Reason: Shadow is looking around four the reaming Chaos Emerald when he suddenly sees Hatsune Miku. He then looks at her and thinks she might have the last Chaos Emerald. He walks up to her and demands her to give the emerald, but Hatsune says she wouldn't give an emerald away. Shadow gets angry and demands the emerald but Hatsune says he will have to fight her to get it.

Connection: Shadow the Hedgehog and Hatsune Miku are both from Sega, although Miku is also still owned by Crypton Future Media.


Shadow returns, although not with a Chaos Emerald. He comments that the world apparently could be saved without the use of the Chaos Emeralds. He says that it also was just too easy, he says that he maybe should go away for some time, take a short break. He uses Chaos Control to leave the place.


Shadow is one of the fastest characters. He uses both his weapons as well as his Chaos Powers in battle, which are mostly based off his own game; Shadow the Hedgehog.
