The Shadow Androids are advanced Badniks designed to resembled Shadow the Hedgehog - dating back as far as Sonic Heroes, they are creations of Dr. Eggman and serve largely as Shadow's version of the Metal Sonic series.
Shadow Androids have powers similar to Shadow's own as well as missile attacks, unlike Metal Sonic they rarely attack alone and are considerably more lifelike (identical, in fact, to Shadow).
Shadow Androids apparently ceased being created by Dr. Eggman after the events of the Shadow the Hedgehog game, though the exact reasons why are still unknown.
