Shadow the Hedgehog is a DLC Guest Playable Character in Injustice 2.

Biography

Origins

Shadow was created as the "Ultimate Life Form" by Gerald Robotnik, using the DNA of Black Doom, and is the final result of Project Shadow. His purpose was to provide ways of developing cures for deadly illnesses that had no cures, namely for Gerald's 12-year old granddaughter, Dr. Eggman and Eggman Nega's 12-year old cousin, Maria Robotnik, but he was captured and put into stasis by the military when he was deemed a threat to humanity.

He was released by Dr. Eggman to help him conquer the world. Initially, Shadow sought to destroy Earth to avenge Maria, who had been killed by the military, but was persuaded to help save it from Gerald's doomsday plans. In the process, Shadow lost his memories and he sought to uncover his past, which brought him into contact with the Black Arms. Ultimately, Shadow thwarted Black Doom and saved the world. From there, Shadow continued his mission to protect humanity by becoming a special agent of G.U.N..

Although he still achieves most of his goals alone, Shadow still allied himself with his teammates Rouge and Omega as well as Sonic and his friends when necessary.

Role in Injustice 2

During a team up with Sonic against Infinite, Shadow and Sonic were teleported with the villain into the One Earth Reality, where the two were recruited by Batman to help the Insurgency stop Superman from bringing the Regime back and defeat Brainiac and Grodd's Society while Batman also helped the duo defeat Infinite, who was at the time planning to perfect the Phantom Ruby's power and accend to god-like status.

In Game Scenes

Intro

  • Approach (first to talk): Shadow teleports into the arena (while causing a red lightning explosion during his entry) with his arms crossed before facing his opponent. After his opponent speaks, he responds as he loads his Shadow Rifle and enters his fighting pose. 
  • Challenged (second to talk): Shadow speeds up towards the arena riding his G.U.N. motorcycle before he back flips into his position and faces his opponent. After his opponent speaks, Shadow responds as he charges his fists with Chaos Control energy. 

Post-Round Stance

Shadow hovers in the air with his Air Shoes before his body ignites Chaos Energy and he punches his fists with one another while saying: "This is the Ultimate Power!" or roaring ferociously.

Wager Clash

Shadow locks his one of his Gold Rings as his other fist is charged with Chaos Force. If successful, Shadow will paralyse his opponent with Chaos Control and kick him/her away.

Character Select Attack

Shadow uppercuts his opponent with his Shadow Rifle.

Defeated Pose

The same of his counterpart Sir Lancelot's boss fight in Sonic and the Black Knight.

Outro

Shadow levitates in the air with his air shoes as a red aura ignites in his hair and a pack of Shadow Androids surround him. Just as the androids leap towards him to attack him, Shadow obliterates them with a quick but violent Chaos Blast.

  • Rifle Fire: Shadow fires a single shoot of his Shadow Rifle at his opponent. The Meter Burn version has Shadow fire three blasts, the last two going in higher arcs while the first remains going straight.
  • Chaos Spear: Shadow tackles his opponent with Chaos Spear. The Meter Burn version lets Shadow use Chaos Sphere to entrap his opponent in a energy bubble for a Combo opportunity.
  • Spin Dash: Similar to Sonic's, but with darker designs. The Meter Burn version is also similar.
  • Chaos Attack: Shadow's variant of Sonic's Homing Attack. The Meter Burn version is based on Shadow's Chaos Attack move in the 2006 Sonic the Hedgehog game.
  • Dark Dash: Shadow charges at his opponent with a light speed dash and knocks him down.

Character Trait

Chaos Rage: Based on Chaos Boost, his enhanced state from Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). It enhances all of his attacks, moves and even with Super Move for a short period of time.

Ultimate Life Form: Shadow entraps his opponent in a Force Sphere with a Chaos Control beam. If successful, Shadow kicks his opponent into another dimension before teleporting before him/her and attacking him/her three times (similar to his beating of three Black Arms monster spawns in the intro of his same name video game). Then, Shadow teleports his opponent near Earth's atmosphere, where he/she is blasted back to the arena by a blast of the Eclipse Cannon from the Space Colony Ark.
