The Vacuum Pod[1] is an object that appears in Shadow the Hedgehog. It is a Vacuum type weapon usable to both enemies and the player.


The Vacuum Pod has a sharp, triangular body. It has a greenish grey body, with it’s overall body being split into several sections which are connected by purple trimming.


The Vacuum Pod is the only weapon type of its kind in the game, making it unique, and can only be found in certain Stages. They can be wielded by Black Warriors who will use them against the player.

Vacuum Pods can be dropped by defeated Black Warriors that wield them or released from containers. Touching them will make Shadow pick them up automatically and pressing PSSquareButton/SNNBGAMECUBEDISCO/XboxX (whether on the ground or in mid-air) fires them. As a Vacuum, the Vacuum Pod can suck up varying objects, such as Rings, special walls and even small enemies such as Gun Beetles, which can then be fired back to deal damage to other enemies. A Vacuum Pod has a total of twenty shots and once those run out, it becomes useless. However, it can be reloaded with another twenty shots by picking up another Vacuum Pod.

In the Hero Mission in Central City, the Vacuum Pod is necessary for sucking up twenty small bombs. It is also needed to pull out special walls in the various Black Comet Stages.
