Example.jpg| thumb|Rayman encounters a Shadow Creature.]][[ File:BigShadowCreatures2.jpg| thumb| Another screenshot.]][[ File: SmallShadowCreature.png| thumb| A couple of small Shadow Creatures attacks Rayman.]] The '''Shadow Creatures''' is a name for two enemies that spawn throughout the game.
= Variation of the Species == The first type of '''Shadow Creature''' that [[ Rayman]] will encounter, is the smaller ones, resembling a black, furry head with small white eyes. They have one form of attack, where they fly towards [[Rayman]] , in a certain amount of time, before colapsing and disappearing. If they succeed to hit [[ Rayman]], he will lose a small amount of health and the '''Shadow Creature'' ' will die at the impact. They can be heard before being seen, as they produce a a sound, similar to the a fly. However, they can be trouble, since they mostly appear at places where Rayman is either dangling or flying, making a single hit a possible death, considering there will be deadly water, lava or far heights if [[Rayman]] loses his grip.
The other type of '''Shadow Creatures''', has a very different act, but looks rather similar to the smaller ''' Shadow Creatures''' . The Big creatures are long, wormlike creatures, made from a line of the smaller '''Shadow Creatures''' , yet only the front ball has eyes. They often move in packs, having a sertain route where they snake themsalves around. they either jump from obsticle to obsticle or move at the at the ground. They attack [[Rayman]] by jumping on him, and does not die at the impact. They can also be hard to kill, as they move alot and can be hard to hit. Similar to the [[ Walking Shell]] s, some have respawn areas, which makes them an enemy that takes its time to defeat.
Where to Find Them == The first Shadow Creatures to be encountered, is found in [[The Fairy Glade]], at the small crater where [[Rayman]] has to climb a large tree and slide down a waterfall. However, many people never really see them, as it is possible to skip the combat. They can also be found later on in [[the Fairy Glade]], at the second visit through [[ the Echoing Caves]] and in the [ [Cave of Bad Dreams]]/the [[Kingdom of the Dead]] ( PS1 version) , the [[Sanctuary of Stone and Fire]] , the [[ Sanctuary of Rock and Lava]] , [[Beneath the Sanctuary of Rock and Lava]] and [[ Tomb of the Ancients]].
== Origin and Leader == In [[Rayman 2: Revolution]], there is a miniboss called [[Chenille]], which appears in the [ [Sanctuary of Rock and Lava]]/ [[Beneath the Sanctuary of Rock and Lava]] (PS2 version). It resembles '''Shadow Creature''', only red and splits into smaller '''Shadow Creatures''' when shot at. It is suggested that [[Chenille]] may be the '''Shadow Creatures''' leader, but such has never been confirmed. Their origin is unknown, however many believe that they are one of the outcomes of [[Polukus] ]' nighmares. Others believe that they are leftover spawns of [[Mr Dark]]'s evil. It is not easy to tell, since no information is given throughout the game or game manual.
