Shadow Blade is Shadow Man's signature weapon, originating from Mega Man 3 and reappearing in Mega Man III and Mega Man: The Wily Wars. It is featured in Mega Man Maker as of version 1.4.0.

It lets the user throw a shuriken that travels 5 tiles outward before returning to the point from which it was thrown. It can be aimed upwards and diagonally upwards, allowing for 5 possible directions to be thrown in. Only one Shadow Blade can be onscreen at a time.


  • Shadow Blade was created as a part of Luigi's Programmer Application for the development of version 1.4.0, and was added in as a bonus when he was accepted onto the team.
  • Its description refers to how similar in function Shadow Blade is to Metal Blade.
