Shadowgeist (シャドウガイスト Shadougaisuto?) is a video game character from the Street Fighter series, first appearing in Street Fighter EX2 as a hidden fighter. He is a merciless, cyber-enhanced vigilante seeking to bring down his country's totalitarian government.
Shadowgeist was once a normal man. Living under a harsh dictatorship, his wife was murdered by the government and his daughter subsequently went missing. Burning with contempt, he enhances his body with cybernetic parts, becoming a violent vigilante and taking the name Shadowgeist. He fights against the dictatorship of his country in order to protect the people from becoming victims like his family had.
He shares a similar moveset to Skullomania. The actual relation between them is unclear, however.
- Shadowgeist is one of the five playable characters to have their name shortened under their lifebar (appearing as "Shadow"). The others are Cycloid Beta, Cycloid Gamma, Cracker Jack and Skullomania.
- While keeping Skullomania's homage to the Kamen Rider series, Shadowgeist seems to be based on a villain from Kamen Rider Black, Shadow Moon, whose brother of the titular hero possessing identical powers, whom he is forced to battle with.
- According to his Street Fighter V profile, Shadowgeist's body is equipped with a self-destruct mechanism.
