Shadaze is a romantic relationship between Shadow the Hedgehog and Blaze the Cat.

Fans created this couple because of their source of origin which was "Terios". Since both of them have similar personality. Because of being based on the same concept character, people see them as two halves of one entity and tha't why in their subjective opinion they fit perfectly.

Character development

Takashi Iizuka, the one who first established the concept of the story in the Sonic franchise. He created "TERIOS" (Shadow and Blaze first original appearance and theirs second name). After the game "Shadow the Hedgehog" (with his favourite character) which wasn't well received, Sega decided that the next project (Sonic 06) should be entrusted to another person. Shun Nakamura.

Shun Nakamura, Silver's creator and also the person who directed Sonic 06. During one of the interviews said that "he liked Silver's naivety". He is also the author of Blaze words. "you are so naive" and the last sentence of hers "Ive always liked that about you" to Silver. Though it is not love, this is a high degree of sympathy. and yes, with romantic music he tried to make Silvaze. However this doesn't work because as explained later by Sega "Blaze homeworld is similiar to Silver's and the two share a brother-sister relationship"

After bad reception of Sonic 06. Shun Nakamura fell in the post as director of sonic games, and since 2010 had no effect on the game of Sonic. At this point it's still uncertain if he will ever return to direct Sonic games. (Since 2010 - Silvaze is discontinued).

Later, when Sega realized that the failure of the game Sonic 06 is much worse than that of Shadow the Hedgehog in 2008 Takashi Iizuka became the head of "Sonic team". Takashi Iizuka till today is chief producer of Sonic games.

At Sonic Boom 2012, Iizuka has confirmed that Blaze is in fact from the Sol Dimension, not from the future. It means Sonic Rush is 100% canonical and that there is NO Silvaze. It never happened and since the creator of both Shadow and Blaze is back it also is highly possible there will be more hints of those two.

It was also explained by Ian Flynn, that since the events of Sonic 06 never happened, in archie comics both Silver and Blaze never actually meet, so this gives endless possibilities for Blaze to either remain forever alone or be with someone.

Cannon proof?

Just very recently Archie has put Shadow and Blaze in many awkward situations in Sonic universe 20 to 24

Example: Nack shoots the Sol Emerald in Jet's hand with a sniper, and causes the emerald to unleash a large, 

Page 16 of Sonic Universe, -24

protective ring of fire around itself and Team Babylon falls to the ground. Nearby, Blaze suddenly stops running and grimaces as a reaction to the assault on the Sol Emerald. Shadow is the first to react to this and gives concern. After a very small check up to see if Blaze is alright, Amy tells Shadow to carry Blaze, and the two exchange awkward glances.

Shadows constant regret hints a little more than neutality.

IMPORTANT: Archie comic and everything that is put inside them must be approved by SEGA. This means that the company approved of characters meeting each other and interacting in this kind of awkward situation.

In the games universe Sonic Generations, during the last cutscene Blaze is seen talking with both Shadow and SIlver, implying they interacted with each other in games. While it is NO proof, there certainly met with each other. It is still unknown how their the future interactions will affect wither character.

  • Personally, after a brief union of Shadow and Amy (producing Silver's ancestor, no doubt), I reckon Shadow and Blaze would work. They have something very few of these unions' member's do: similarity of personality. They're dedicated to their tasks of protection, they like solitude, they find various others annoying (and are quite open about it), and they don't let the full extent of their personalities be seen by many others. Also, I think they'd find each other's various powers very attractive. Plus, as an Emerald Guardian, Blaze is possibly immortal (in the same way Knuckles is), so, no death-related heartbreak.

  • Hopefully we will see them together in archie comics. Sonic and Shadow always mirror each other so, since Sonic is with Sally, Shadow should be with his own princess, and that would be Blaze the Cat, who not only isn't intimidated by him but can probably fight him with equal strength. - Neizd Ra'Zhair 13:13, August 3, 2013

Aren't you so lucky?*yoshi blows up*#ff58a3 19:13, January 11, 2011 (UTC)silaze and shadlin and sonamy are real, not this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's messed up because Silver is possably Shadow's son, so that means that Shadow is dating... HIS SON'S GIRLFRIEND!!! Wait, what??? IDK but you get the point. It's messed up... that's weird...

Silver and Blaze are actually real. SEGA would have to hit you over the head screaming it to make it any clearer. Shadaze are not real and never will be. Sorry about that.

Who came up with this stupid couple?! It's over 9000!! 18:59, June 8, 2011 (UTC)

No. Just... No. I've got to shoop-da-woop whoever thought this up! Pumpituppartyzone 23:30, July 3, 2011 (UTC)

Whoever came up with this couple is dumb.. like the creator of Fanouge! IceSeason101 23:35, July 25, 2011 (UTC)

Silvaze = OH YAH! Shadouge = Okeydoke! Shadaze = ARE YOU CRAZY?! I might except this if I'd read the comics...I prefer games and Sonic X, in which Silvaze and Shadouge are more popular. I mean, where did this even come from?! My game has my opinion about couples, including an all-new one.

NO! PitsBrother143

Nope.avi! Frozen Scorpio 13:17, May 19, 2012 (UTC)

Silvaze all the way! ~ Chamesthehero

Nope.avi! Sonaze fan here. These two have never interacted in the games, and their personalities just wouldn't work well together. --MaskedKitsune (talk) 16:01, August 14, 2013 (UTC)

Umm, Shadow and Blaze? No game ever screwed this couple up. I just don't like it that much. I ship ShadAmy, ShadAria and SonAze. ♪Pianoteen♪


I don't support this, or any other Blaze the Cat pairings. I gave my reasons for not supporting this on the talk page. The "proofs" listed on this page aren't actual proofs for a pairiing. Besides, isn't there much more evidence to support Shadouge than this? Can't spell distraction without action! (talk) 14:02, August 17, 2013 (UTC)

I would support this but Archie comics are non-canon to me and I focus more on the games with some of the events of comics happening.This event isn't one of them.Not to mention they didn't go off to a good start...There is a scene when Blaze tries to burn Shadow's face off.Yes!They love each other,don't they?(Sarcasm)~Cyclonestar

I don't know why, but this just does not appeal to me. Trozeiani206 When life gives you lemons, you make potato salad. HattyMcHattingtonDance 22:30, November 16, 2013 (UTC)
