Yellow water[1] is an obstacle that appears in Shadow the Hedgehog. It is a contaminated liquid that has infested Prison Island after the island's partial destruction.


The yellow water is a form of drainage that glows greenish yellow. Its origins are unknown, but it presumably leaked out on Prison Island following the large explosion caused there by Dr. Eggman. The yellow water is highly poisonous, making it hazardous to any living creature.[1]

In gameplay, yellow water is only encountered in Prison Island where aqueducts of it make up a big part of the Stage. Touching it will cause instant damage, so the player will more often than not find themselves traversing over the yellow water with the aid of an Air Saucer. Alternatively, the player can rely on the Invincibility effect created by the Hero and Dark Shadow transformations to walk across the yellow water without constantly being damaged.
