Battle Mode refers to the bonus mode in Shadow the Hedgehog. It is the multiplayer versus mode of the game where two players can compete against each other in seven different competitions.
Battle Mode can be played by selecting "2P Game" in the main menu. As the name sake implies, only two players can play and compete against one another in a battle royale between the two Shadows. The objective is for one player to defeat the other player in order to win by attacking them without Rings.
In the character select, the players can choose from up to six playable Shadow Androids to play as. One resembles Shadow the Hedgehog while the others are recolors or metallic variants of Shadow with built in weapons. The metallic Shadow Androids have infinite ammo with their built-in weapons but are unable to drop their weapon or pick up other weapons off the field.

Located in a large volcanic cavern, three platforms connect to a larger platform at the center, with walkways and rails to grind on. The lava will occasionally rise forcing the players to seek the platforms. Air Saucers can be found which will allow players to safely move over the lava and explore the further regions of the stage.
