— Hero Shadow, Shadow the Hedgehog

Hero Shadow is a transformed state of Shadow the Hedgehog in the game Shadow the Hedgehog. It is achieved when Shadow's mind is fueled by thoughts of justice, and once obtained, this form grants him full control over positive chaos energy. This form, however, only lasts for a few moments.


When utilizing the positive chaos energy builded by his good will, Shadow simply becomes coated in positive chaos energy which gives him a blue glow and a spark-like aura of the same color. His glow will fade when the energy is burned up entirely.


Hero Shadow allows Shadow to become invincible and perform a large scale version of Chaos Control to move fast forward at breakneck speeds during Stages or slow down time during boss battles. He can also use any weapon without draining its ammo/durability. Hero Shadow can be obtained by filling Shadow's Hero Gauge. It is the heroic version of Dark Shadow, which can be obtained through committing evil deeds. Shadow can also enter this form in his Super State.


  • The blue color shown on Hero Shadow may be a reference to Sonic, who is a blue hero.
  • When Shadow teleports using this state anyone who talks to him will stop until he finishes his Chaos Control move.
  • In Shadow the Hedgehog, the player can cancel out of Chaos Control early by pressing Gamecube X Button.png/PSTriangleButton.png.
