Shadows are special bosses in Chaos Rings II, accessed through special P.U.B. quests added in the April 2012 update, My Fang is All About the Magnum!. They appear as dark counterparts of the player characters, and use dark versions of their abilities. They are very similar to the Atmans from the original Chaos Rings, but are now more than just a palette swap. In addition, they can utilize their counterpart's Awakenings, and are all at Level 110 or greater, making them exceptionally difficult bosses. Defeating a character's Shadow rewards the player with that character's best weapon.
