The Phantom Shadow Move (幻影移動 Genei Idō?)[1] is a move that appears in Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut. It is a move used by E-101 Mark II that allows it to dodge attacks.


When using the Phantom Shadow, E-101 Mark II dodges an attack by moving at such high speeds that it creates black after-images of itself.

In gameplay, this move is used during the E-101 Mark II boss battle. The Phantom Shadow is used to avoid the player's forward attacks rather than deflecting them. This move is impossible to counter.
