Shades are a type of ghost that are found throughout the many worlds.
Shades are created when someone tried to revive a dead loved one with magic. If they are inexperienced, the loved one's spirit turns into a shade and murders them.
Shades are known for their mindless, aggressive nature and their shape-shifting abilities. They are also known to posses machines and freshly killed creatures, but cannot posses living beings.
- The first Shade was created in Hyrule during ancient times, when a man tried to revive a Nix Wolf that he had raised since birth.
