The Secret Key[1] is an item that appears in Shadow the Hedgehog. It is a key that is used to open Secret Doors.


The Secret Key is very similar to the Special Key from Sonic Heroes, except it only has one tooth and possesses dark yellow frames.

In gameplay, the Secret Keys can open a Stage's Secret Door. Every Stage has five Special Keys scattered throughout it which are all required to be collected to open its Secret Door. Touching a Special Key makes the player pick it up. It will then automatically be saved in the Game Data, ensuring the player does not have recollect them every time when playing a Stage. When the player brings all five Special Keys to the Secret Door, its locks will break apart one after another and its door will open.
