Field sprite.

Shadow is an enemy in Final Fantasy Mystic Quest present in Doom Castle, the final dungeon. It can multiply and self-destruct, causing massive damage, and can inflict Fatal, which in tandem with its ability to multiply, makes it among the more dangerous enemies. The Skullrus Rex uses Shadows as bodyguards.

Shadow has two phases. At first it rushes at the party with a katana. After it takes enough damage it is left clinging to a ledge.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

A shadow is an area where direct light from a light source cannot reach due to obstruction by an object. It occupies all of the space behind an opaque object with light in front of it.

Coincidentally, considering the Shadow enemy is a recolor of the Ninja enemy, they share the same name as a character in Final Fantasy VI.
