Shadow is an element acquired by Cynder in The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon. The shadow ability later reappeared in the reboot of the Spyro series, Skylanders, as one of Cynder's two Undead abilities.
The symbol of Shadow looks like a dark yin yang symbol of dark purple above a dark blue.
- Shadow Strike: Cynder can unleash her shadow element by diving into her own shadow and strike out from the darkness with shadow empowered claws. Shadow strike can also help Cynder get through purple doors.
- Deadly Shadow Strike
- Sinister Shadow Strike
- Shadow Fire: Cynder can unleash her shadow element by breathing a dark shadow fire to suffocate foes.
- Suffocating Shadow Fire
- Asphyxiating Shadow Fire
Both effects of the Shadow Strike and Shadow Fire will leave portions of the shadow magic coating the enemy's eyes, confusing them into attacking their own allies instead of their enemies for a short while.
In Skylanders, one of Cynder's abilities involve her turning into a shadow to dash past enemies, leaving behind a trail of ghosts that cause damage.
