Umbra Automata, commonly called just "Umbra", are shadow-like monsters that inhabit Hyrule.
Umbras are creatures that look like the silhouette of their creators. They can not speak and are a solid black in color, just like shadows. They have red eyes, but can vary in overall appearance. They do only what their master tells them to do and are merciless killers.
- In Latin, "Umbra" means "shadow and "automata" means "puppets."
