Allows the user to control and manipulate the shadows.

–When shadow is described by the magic choosing screen.

Most of Shadow's attacks inflict the Wither status and have no weaknesses, but on the other hand, also have no apparent strengths compared to other magics besides the Wither status effect.

The only exception is if Shadow is also the player's First Magic, in which case the Second Magic Shadow will have every move unlocked instantly and identical tier levels as the first.

  • Shadow is the sixth magic to be added to Arcane Adventures.
  • Kraken also possesses Shadow Magic, though uses a different move set that is not available to players.
  • Marua's staff is imbued with Shadow magic, albeit he does not possess it himself.
  • Shadow Bullet's Tier 5's smaller circle is smaller than other Tier 5 magic Qs. Speculated that this happens due to its shorter cast time.
  • Dark Impact used to be an uppercut move, just like most magic E grabs before it was changed.
  • Dark Explosion was named Dark Rage before it was later changed. Dark Rage is almost similar to Dark Explosion.
  • Unlike every other Shadow attack, Dark Binding does not inflict the Wither status effect.
  • Shadow can be really useful during nighttime, appearing to be almost invisible.
