A nimble Heartless that swims through the shadows.

Physical Description[edit]

A Neoshadow

A Neoshadow has a more humanoid body structure than a normal Shadow, but shares the same pitch black skin and spherical, glowing yellow eyes. Its crooked antennae are quite long and fall back behind the Heartless. It seems to be rather muscular, and its hands are very large, each one sporting five clawed fingers. Its feet, like those of a normal Shadow, are long and lack digits, but a Neoshadow's feet more resemble boots. Its body is also lined by several faint, blue veins of color.


The Heartless are physical, living manifestations of the darkness within people's hearts. They manifest in two forms; "Pureblood" and the artificially created "Emblem" Heartless. Neoshadows are pureblood heartless.


Heartless, as they seek and consume hearts, desire to return to the greatest heart, the heart of all worlds, Kingdom Hearts, that resides deep within the Realm of Darkness. And because of this, Heartless seek immense darkness, enough to completely consume the Realm of Light. The entryway into this place of great power is the Door to Darkness, the door that separates the realm of light and the realm of darkness. Heartless hardly ever gather together to form a civilization, let alone even gather the energy to think, save for one special case.

Neoshadow Names[edit]

Neoshadows, along with other Heartless, do not bear birth names, as they do not find them necessary. However, they could be given a nickname by someone else.
