Shadows are an uncommon enemy encountered in Prince of Persia: Warrior Within.
- "Expertly trained in the art of stealth, these creatures can traverse the castle grounds unseen. The Empress often puts them to use overseeing her other creatures. Sword and dagger strikes will rip a victim up before they can locate the source of such vicious attacks."
- —Official Booklet Description
Shadows are frightening creatures that are blessed with the power of invisibility. They can sneak up on the Prince and attack him without him even knowing they're there. Luckily, however, they possess no armor, and once detected, can be dispatched easily enough. Shadows have outlines that make them partially visible.
Their weapons are also completely visible, so it almost looks as if the weapon is floating on its own. Their swords, Camros and Fravashis, are cursed and can harm the Prince with each successful attack on an enemy using the weapons).
