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 encounters Skullomania, who he believes to be a super villain.
- 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, who is the brother of the titular hero and possesses identical powers.
- According to his Shadaloo Combat Research Institute profile, Shadowgeist's body is equipped with a self-destruct mechanism.
