Shadow's pursuit attack. He takes down opponents with a downwards Spin Kick.

— Info, Sonic Battle[1]

Shadow Eagle (シャドウイーグル Shadōīguru?) is a move used primarily by Shadow the Hedgehog in Sonic Battle. In the game, it serves as Shadow's Pursuit Attack.


When performing Shadow Eagle, the user jumps towards a knocked-away opponent in midair. While moving at speeds where the user cannot be seen, the user approaches and attacks the opponent with a diving kick via an out-stretched leg where the foot is slightly tilted inward, pushing the opponent in a straight slope into the ground.

Compared to other Pursuit Attacks, Shadow Eagle is a very fast and powerful Pursuit Attack, but trying to land it against a grounded opponent is often the most difficult part of it. While it can be used early to contact the ground quickly to avoid a Pursuit Attack counter, it is offset by its difficulty in connecting with the opponent in specific situations.

Emerl can randomly obtain this skill after participating in a fight with Shadow, either with or against him.

  • Despite the card showing the same animation for Shadow Rocket, the move's actual in-game animation is too fast to keep track of, being a combination of both the aforementioned move and Shadow Slider/S. Teleport's animations.
