The Queen of the Shadowkhan 08

The Shadowkhan are tribes of ninja-like shadow spirit warriors from the Shadow Realm. While some are reminiscent of ninjas, most simply look like creatures wearing black suits.


The Shadowkhan first appeared in the first season, working for Shendu. It was revealed in the fourth season that they are from Japan, and that there are many different types, each controlled by an Oni Mask.

Powers and Abilities

All Shadowkhan tribes can travel through shadows and are deadly each in their own way. The nine tribes' combined power can engulf the Earth into eternal darkness and erode all good magic.


Shadowkhan can be summon in several ways through a dark magic spell, through the use of an Oni Mask or through the tattooed Mark of Tarakudo. Tarakudo and his Oni Generals have the ability to summon their respective Shadowkhan naturally.
