- —Shadow Lady (Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes)
Shadow Lady (シャドウレディ Shadō Redi?) is a video game character originating from the Marvel vs. Capcom series, first appearing in Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes as a secret fighter. This is the form Chun-li has taken after being infused with machine technology by Shadaloo.
Shadow Lady wears the same clothes as her original counterpart, but her clothes are now dark blue with golden details. Her alternate color is pink with green details.
The gameplay of Shadow Lady is in parts very similar to that of Chun-Li, players can use the Infinity Leg (a version of the Hyakuretsukyaku), Sky Counter Crash (Hazanshu) and some unique attacks such as Yosokyaku, Wall Jump, Kakukyakuraku and Reishiki Kikouken.
Shadow Lady also has her own attacks, which differ from Chun-Li's moves. She has the Rainbow Missile, three missiles fired from her back, the Miracle Drill, an attack that turns her hands into a drill to attack the opponent and the Plasma Barrier, a shield made of electricity.
Shadow Lady also has own unique attacks such as the Triple Jump and Air Dash, which she is capable of due to having compact Vernier thrusters on her soles. In addition to her Hyper Combos, Big Bang Laser, a giant energy laser, the Galaxy Missile, a series of missiles that Shadow Lady shoots towards the opponent and the Final Mission, a move she shares with Shadow.
Chun-Li's ending hinted that M. Bison intended to alter her in the same way as Charlie. Shadow Lady's ending in the game also showed a similar fate befalling fellow Capcom hero Jin Saotome. Shadow Lady's Capcom Fighters Network profile describes Chun-Li being captured by M. Bison and altered the same way that Charlie Nash was turned into Shadow. However, she was not enhanced with Psycho Power like Shadow, only gaining mechanical parts that enhance her mobility and power. Shortly after her remodeling, she regained her memory and ran away from Shadaloo, joining Shadow to fight against evil.
- A Shadaloo-brainwashed incarnation of Chun-Li appeared in the Street Fighter II V anime series. Though unconfirmed, this brainwashed form may have served as the inspiration for Shadow Lady.
- In Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Chun-Li is given an alternate color resembling Shadow Lady, but like Akuma's Cyber-Akuma DLC alternate costume, there is no change to her moveset.
