Shadow

From Dragon Quest Wiki

A shadow is a black, insubstantial, phantom-like creature introduced in Dragon Quest III. It was originally colored a dull blue due to the blank backgrounds on the NES games, but as of the sixth game it has become black to better match its name.

Characteristics[edit]

These phantom like fiends haunt remote ruins such as the Moonmirror Tower and the Norvik steppes, hardly taking physical damage thanks to their fading form. Screeching as they slash with ghastly claws, Shadows are a spooky sight for unexpecting adventurers. The let loose a cool breath to bathe the party in a chilly wicked wind.
