Shadow Blade (シャドーブレード Shadō Burēdo?) is Shadow Man's primary weapon. The Shadow Blade is a large shuriken that can be shot in 5 different directions (left, right, diagonally up and right, diagonally up and left and straight up). In Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters, the directions are reduced to four, being unable to be shot straight up. The Shadow Blade has a relatively short range, as it boomerangs back. Unlike when Shadow Man uses it, Mega Man can only throw one Shadow Blade at a time.

  • For Kamegoro Maker, a certain amount of damage will be taken from the health meter for each of the five Kamegoros produced, regardless of which weapon the player uses against them. Each Kamegoro has 3 health.

Capacity

Two Shadow Blades can be used by one weapon energy unit in Mega Man 3 and Mega Man III, and one Shadow Blade uses one unit in Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters. With a full energy gauge, it can be used 56 times in Mega Man 3, 38 times in Mega Man III, and 16 times in Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters.

Exploit

In the NES version of Mega Man 3, the player can use Shadow Blade endlessly by changing the weapon after each shot, avoiding an energy unit being used by the second Shadow Blade. This issue was fixed in later releases like Mega Man: The Wily Wars.
