The Hero Gauge[1] is a game mechanic that appears in Shadow the Hedgehog. It is an energy gauge used for the Hero Shadow state.


The Dark Gauge is a grey-framed gauge that appears in the upper left corner on the HUD. Inside it is a blue energy bar and on the left end is a hook.


In gameplay, the Hero Gauge is filled by committing heroic deeds.[1] These include:

Once the Hero Gauge is filled, the player transforms into Hero Shadow, which grants infinite ammo for weapons, invulnerability and usage of Chaos Control. However, the Hero Gauge will steadily decrease while Hero Shadow is active and using Chaos Control will deplete it completely. Once the Hero Gauge runs out Shadow reverts back to normal.

Due to the nature of certain mission, destroying Eggman's factions will only occasionally provide energy for the Hero Gauge.
