Shadow Lady is a secret
playable character in
Marvel VS Capcom.
She is a palette
swap of Chun-Li, similar to Shadow
Charlie. She is a roboticized and cybernetically-enhanced version of Chun-Li with a highly darkened color palette, increased speed and a few high-tech based moves which are empowered with Shadaloo technology. Chun-Li was altered the same way that Charlie Nash was turned into Shadow. However, she was not enhanced with Psycho
Power like Shadow, only gaining mechanical parts that enhance her mobility and power. Shortly after her remodeling, she regained her memory and ran away from Shadaloo, joining Shadow to fight against evil.
Shadow Lady's ending suggests that M.
Bison altered her similar to how he altered Charlie, but this is not
considered canon, as Shadow Lady is simply a "what if" design.
Additionally, she is not to be confused with Shadow Lady
the manga series by Masakazu Katsura.
Besides her playable appearance in Marvel Vs. Capcom (1998), Shadow Lady makes a cameo appearance as a palette swap for Chun-Li in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 and as a boss in SFV: Arcade Edition's Extra Battle Mode.
