Shadow the Hedgehog is the result of Project Shadow, a project started by Gerald Robotnik with the intention of curing his granddaughter's disease and creating the Ultimate Lifeform. After the project was shut down by the government, Shadow was put into stasis for 50 years until being reawakened by Doctor Eggman so he could help him conquer the world. Shadow seeked to destroy the world for revenge on Maria's death during a raid on the Space Colony ARK but was convinced by Sonic and Rouge that would not be what Maria wanted. Shadow then helped Sonic save the Earth from the Finalhazard's collision and they became allies.

Note: There are two schools of interpretation about Master Mogul. He was only explicitly shown destroying single universal spacetime continuums, one at a time, but on the other hand the versions of Tails from different timelines were apparently stated to come from different "multi-verses". It is extremely unclear whether "multi-verse" zones are to be interpreted as "zones within a multiverse" or as entire multiverses. However, when Mogul was defeated by Tails, only a single multiverse was mentioned, here by using the proper spelling of the word. Since most of the other high-level characters are scaled from him, this places them at unknown ratings as well.
In addition, for the moment these pages only cover the pre-reboot Archie Comics continuity. In the post-reboot continuity, the characters will eventually forget everything that happened before until nothing remains.
