Shadow's guard skill. Powered by Chaos Control.

— Info, Sonic Battle[1]

Shadow Guard (シャドウガード Shadōgādo?) is a chaos power used primarily by Shadow the Hedgehog in Sonic Battle. In the game, it serves as Shadow's Guard Skill.


When performing Shadow Guard, the user crosses both his arms to brace from oncoming attacks while using Chaos Control to power the guard. This briefly forms a spherical field, which is signified by a purple pulse emerging from and moving around the user that can block any incoming attacks.

In gameplay, if the player successfully deflects an attack with Shadow Guard, half of the received damage is transferred to the Ichikoro Gauge. If the blocked attack was a Special Move, the player's Ichikoro Gauge becomes completely filled up instead.

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