The Imperial Shadow, also known as the Shade, Fallen Emperor, or the Revenger, is an enemy from Final Fantasy II. It is an undead specter of the Emperor, and a quite powerful enemy. However, it is not the real Emperor who came back to life, but merely a shadow. It has a nearly boss-level HP, high Attack power, and the Curse 8 move, which can hinder the player's Attack power greatly. In Palamecia, an Imperial Shadow guards the treasure chest containing the Thunder Spear in the lower left area of the third floor.
