Kingdom Hearts Birth by SleepEdit
Before the events of the game, when Ventus was training under Master Xehanort as his apprentice, Master Xehanort had him fight a group of Neoshadows, intending to force Ventus to use the power of darkness. When Ventus was defeated because he refused to use the darkness, Master Xehanort uses his Keyblade to forcefully unlock his heart, producing Vanitas from its darkness.
Kingdom Hearts 358/2 DaysEdit
Roxas and Xion will be sent to Beast's Castle to eliminate the Neoshadow in Mission 29: Eliminate the Neoshadow.
On Day 358, after returning to the World That Never Was in order to reclaim Kingdom Hearts and revitalize Xion, Roxas is attacked by several Neoshadows. He eliminates them, but is forced to side with Riku in order to finish off the rest of the continuously spawning Heartless. However, as soon as the Heartless are taken care of, the two Keyblade wielders turn on each other.
A Neoshadow has a more humanoid body structure than a normal Shadow, but shares the same pitch black skin and spherical, glowing yellow eyes. Its crooked antennae are quite long and fall back behind the Heartless. It seems to be rather muscular, and its hands are very large, each one sporting five clawed fingers. Its feet, like those of a normal Shadow, are long and lack digits, but a Neoshadow's feet more resemble boots. Its body is also lined by several faint, blue veins of color.
The name "Neoshadow" is derived from the prefix "neo-", which means "new", and "shadow".
The Neoshadow is stronger and faster than a Shadow, and is more strategic in combat. In Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, the Neoshadows are among the most difficult common enemies, working together as a team to defeat Sora.
In Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, and Kingdom Hearts II, they are less rare and dangerous but are still more difficult to defeat than regular Shadows. In Kingdom Hearts II, a powerful Reaction Command, Wind Dance, can be used to eliminate or intensely damage Neoshadows.
