Relationship with Maria Robotnik
Professor Gerald's granddaughter, Maria Robotnik, is by far the one person that made Shadow the happiest. She was like a sister to him, and they shared the same dream; to visit Earth. Unfortunately, GUN deemed Project Shadow to be too big a threat to the world. As a result, they eliminated everything they could in relation to the project, including the people. Maria was shot and killed by G.U.N. during the raid on the ARK. Her last parting words were "Sayonara, Shadow the Hedgehog," Shadow still stays strong to keep his promise to her and mourned her death, although at the end of Shadow the Hedgehog, he implies that he is putting his past behind him.
In Sonic X, After Shadow's creation, he became close friends with Maria to the end. Sadly, Maria was killed during the invasion of the ARK by the Guardian Unit of Nations, after releasing Shadow from a cryogenic tube in the Japanese version. However, in the English dub, they say she was taken away.
She is shown to be like Shadow's big sister. They were both born and raised on Space Colony ARK, and shared the dream of going to visit the planet Earth, shown best in a flashback Shadow has where he's talking to Maria. He states "What's it like to see the sky above your head? I want...to find out." However, when Project Shadow was shut down, Maria decided that she had to set Shadow free, and released him to Earth. Apparently, the last thing Shadow saw in that space station was Maria being shot and killed by a soldier. Shadow then spent his time after being awakened planning to avenge her by destroying the humans, which is why he showed Eggman the Eclipse Cannon. He often has hallucinations of Maria, such as seeing her reflection standing next to his on any glass surface, or hearing her plead to him when Chriswas asking for help. Chris reminds Shadow of Maria with his kind hearted ways.

I like better when it's not Zoophilllia. ~~~~
It's perfect! It makes SOOO much sense!- Mirandafan21
- Like how I support Sonails platonically, I believe that despite one being human and the other hedgehog, they were like brother and sister. A ♦ relationship as they find support and protection in each others company.--Mystic Monkey is a proud MonoBook Wikian. 03:38, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
- I LOVE THIS COUPLE SO MUCH!
- I support this couple all the way! I don't see how people think Sonelise is the same way. Shadow knew Maria for so long and Sonic knew Elise for like....2 days :/Nikki the Hedgehog is awesome and you can't deny it! 18:52, July 8, 2013 (UTC)
- I like this as Maria returning as a hedgehog.As a human I liked it as a brother-sister relationship.But if Maria comes back as a hedgehog,I will support this!So I'm a supporter~Cyclonestar
- I support this couple ever since SA2. Until Sonic 06 came, this was my 2nd favorite shipping. Honestly, the events of Sonic 06 screwed up lots of the shippings I support. If Maria was revived as a human or was reincarnated as a hedgehog, I'd still support. ♪Pianoteen♪

- Maria was like a sisther to Shadow! NOT a GIRL FRIEND! if you play Shadow the Hedeghog (Game) it says that Maria was like a sisther to Shadow! Shadow loves NO ONE LIKE A GIRL FRIEND!
- Yeah Amy! She was like a sister to him not a girlfriend! IceSeason101.
- A human and a hedgehog won't work, sorry can't support this, besides I support Shadouge.It's over 9000!! 02:05, June 13, 2011 (UTC)
- Human + Hedgehog = NOWAY! Plus, Maria was like a SISTER to Shadow. Has no-one played Shadow the Hedgehog the game? Bring it on or ya meet my sword! 14:05, June 18, 2011 (UTC)
- He is over his past! that means no more Maria!!!
- That is sick. Shadow and Maria are RELATED.Chippii 16:45, February 19, 2012 (UTC)Chippii
- No. No. No. Just No. They were like siblings, and Shadow is technically (not biologically) Maria's UNCLE. Not to mention the whole interspecies thing. Black Arms/Hedgehog hybrid + Human (or Overlander...) just doesn't work out. Magicisgreat (talk) 22:45, March 27, 2013 (UTC)
- I think we've had enough hedeghog/human relationships, don't you think? Food is an important part of a balanced diet. (talk) 06:09, September 19, 2013 (UTC)
