The Shadow Androids were a mass-produced robot resembling Shadow the Hedgehog.



At some point in the past, Doctor Eggman stored some Shadow Androids in some specialized tanks in one of his bases, working with the traitorous member of the Diamond Cutters in order to lure them to their deaths. Dr. Eggman activated the androids, which proceeded to eliminate Smithy the Lion, Slinger the Ocelot and Claire Voyance. By the time Whisper got out of hiding and when the coast was cleared, entered the bunker, with sign of any remaining shadow androids.
