He was freed by Doc.Robotnik, and decides to make an alliance with him to find all seven Chaos Emeralds. Shadow made his idea to fulfill the wish of Maria, his best friend, who was also his creator's niece. That's a pity that his memory sometimes plays troubles to him, convincing him that Maria wanted revenge having been brutally killed. And, just when the Planet was about to be destroyed, Shadow remembered what Maria truly wanted: forgiveness and a chance to Earth's people to live happily. Shadow fights by Sonic's side against the prototype of ultimate life and manages to save the world, by sacrificing his own life. Or so it seems.
