Shadow the Hedgehog vs. Venom is a What-if Death Battle.


Sonic vs Marvel! Battle of the doppelgangers to determine who is the deadliest.


Wiz: The Black-Colored characters...

Boomstick: And not talking about the African American folks, we mean characters that are completely black.

Wiz: Anyway, some of them represent as the doppelgangers to heroes; so when it comes to black colored characters, these two come in common the most often.

Boomstick: Shadow the Hedgehog, the Ultimate Life Form and doppelganger to Sonic the Hedgehog.

Wiz: And Venom, A.K.A. Eddie Brock and doppelganger of Spider-Man.

Boomstick: He's Wiz and I'm Boomstick.

Wiz: And it's our job to analyze their armor, weapons, and skills to find out who would win a Death Battle.

Shadow the Hedgehog

Wiz: Shadow the Hedgehog was created by Professor Gerald Robotnik, in cooperation with Black Doom, to become the ultimate life form. Despite this, he created Shadow to help cure his ill granddaughter, Maria Robotnik.

Boomstick: But it does get short-lived when the goddamn G.U.N. soldiers killed everyone on board while Shadow escaped and planned on destroying Earth for revenge, after Dr. Eggman freed him from the facility and unintentionally got Sonic framed for stealing the Chaos Emerald from a bank.

Wiz: His powers and abilities are the same as that of Sonic, from his super speed to various damaging spin moves and martial arts.

Boomstick: But he also has some unique powers up his sleeve such as Chaos Control to freeze time around him, Chaos Spear like his own rendetion of the "kamehamehas", and Chaos Blast which can incenterate anyone and anything within its radius.

Wiz: Those do certain damage when he wears his inhibitor rings, but when he removes them, his chaos powers extend more but there comes a catch in which they tire him out more quickly.

Boomstick: Well, that's lame. But he does use those chaos powers when he has at least one Chaos Emerald, and when has all seven, he becomes Super Shadow.

Wiz: This form of Shadow makes him invincible, fly faster than ever before and even breathe underwater, but it will last shortly unless he gathers more gold rings.

Boomstick: Shadow is one Hedgehog to be threatened with.

Shadow: "I promise you... Revenge!"


Boomstick: Holy Shit, who is that monster imposter?

Wiz: That is Venom, he is the counterpart of Spider-Man.

Boomstick: Oh, well, at least he is pretty cool looking for a monster imposter.

Wiz: Back when Venom was known as Eddie Brock, he started out as a reporting rival to Peter Parker at the Daily Bugle.

Boomstick: Too bad for Brock that he was canned by ol' J.J. for cheating by fabricating photos or not giving him full info on the news report stories needed.

Wiz: Despite the things he putted himself through, he blames those events on Peter who eventually rejected a type of alien substance known as the symbiote, which makes a later acquaintance in Brock and even letting him know that Peter is none other than the webslinger himself, Spider-Man. So Brock became the doppelganger of Spidey, known as Venom.

Boomstick: Talk about getting even! Well, thanks to Brock and the symbiote bonding with each other, Venom has certain same powers as Spidey, except his strength and speed surpass those of his rival...

Wiz: ...and also lacking the unique Spider Sense.

Boomstick: But when those don't do the trick, his symbiote can lend a slimy hand, I don't see how though.

Wiz: The symbiote can simply shape-shift itself and/or its host into various forms whether it'd be spikes, tentacles or other people, or even change its size to giant proprtions or turn invisible.

Boomstick: Wow, now I want some of that symbiote on me!

Wiz: Despite all this however, Venom is not all that invincible as people would think, his own kyptonite is revealed to be extremely loud noises.

Boomstick: Nevertheless, Venom is a total Bad-ass!

Venom: "Such low-grade webbing! Here, have some of mine!"



Wiz: All right, the combatants are set, let's end the debate once and for all.

Boomstick: It's time for a Death Battle!


Shadow is seen on top of the building, holding a Chaos Emerald while trying to remember his memory, until he hears someone talking to him.

???: "So there is a powerful being around in these rooftops!"

Shadow: "That is right, I am Shadow the Hedgehog, the Ultimate life form."

As he turns around and sees Venom.

Shadow: "Who are you?"

Venom: "We are the poison of both Peter Parker and Spider-Man. We are Venom!"

Shadow: "'We?', there is only you! You must be nuts!"

Venom: "How dare you insult us, vermin!"


Venom uses his webbing on Shadow and catches him and pulls him in to his grip and throws him, but Shadow uses his feet to spring from the wall and uses a Spin Attack on Venom until his flesh showed in his abdominal.

Shadow: "You're a Human!"

Venom: "Not just any human, a human named Eddie Brock!"

Venom uses his webbing again, but Shadow was prepared that time.

Shadow: "Chaos Control!"

Shadow disappears.

Venom: "What? Where did he go?"

Shadow: "Right behind you."

The floating Shadow axle kicks Venom from behind him. Venom crashes to a wall.

Shadow: "Chaos Spear!"

The spear comes charging at Venom but he jumps out of the way.

Venom: "Don't think you are the only one who knows the value of surprise, get of load of this!"

Venom turns invisible.

Shadow: "Huh, now where did he go?"

Venom reappears behind Shadow grabbing him by the skull.

Venom: "Right behind you just like you did to us."

Venom throws Shadow until he busted through the window of a jewelry store. Venom follows Shadow to the store to try and finish him for good.

Shadow: "Big mistake, creep!"

(cue 'Diablon' theme from 'Shadow the Hedgehog'.)

Shadow pushes Venom back with force as Super Shadow.

Venom: "What the Hell?!"

Shadow: "Behold the true power I possess!"

Venom gets furious, lets out a roar and grows 50 feet tall!

Shadow: "Alright, now it's on!"

Venom and Shadow go on an epic fight until Venom hits shadow, causing him to set off a fire alarm in a fire dept. making a loud enough noise for Venom to screech in pain.

Shadow: "Now's my chance."

Shadow gets close to to screeching Venom close enough and takes his inhibitor rings off.

Shadow: "Chaos Blast!"

The big red exploding ball surrounded the area incinerating everything in the radius, including Venom who is shrieking in even more pain until he is gone. The Chaos Blast disappears and Super Shadow returns to the ground turning back into regular Shadow.

Shadow: "Hmph, pathetic creep."



(cue "I am all of me" from Shadow the Hedgehog)

Boomstick: Wow, that is one powerful showdown!

Wiz: Venom maybe more stronger than Shadow, but Shadow was faster and more strategic.

Boomstick: Even tried to turn himself giant to fight Super Shadow!

Wiz: But Shadow managed to get in close to use his Chaos Blast on Venom.

Boomstick: Just when you thought he hasn't done that before, Shadow actually has.

Wiz: He has used it in his fight against the G.U.N. Commander in his Diablon and that did damage, also, he dealt with Black aliens namely the Black Arms, including their leader Black Doom.

Boomstick: Venom didn't get quite the blast he wanted.

Wiz: The winner is Shadow the Hedgehog.
