Of the thousands of Shadows that Sung Jin-Woo has, these are the ten strongest Shadows in the Solo Leveling manhwa that even have the strength of National Level Hunters!
Shadow is the name for Sung Jin-Woo’s servant, the main character of the Solo Leveling manhwa/webtoon, a Shadow Monarch who can resurrect the bodies of living beings into Shadow figures.
Jin-Woo’s thousands of Shadows had different ranks, often used as a benchmark for their strength. Here are Sung Jin-Woo’s ten strongest Shadows in the Solo Leveling manhwa.
The Tank was the Shadow that Jin-Woo raised from the ice bear monster he met at Red Gate. Tanks usually fight by relying on their animal instincts, using their fangs and claws to pounce on any enemy they encounter.
Because Tank has a reasonably low Knight rank, its strength is rarely shown in the latest Solo Leveling chapter.
Before serving Jin-Woo, Kaisel was subordinate to the Monarch of White Flames, Baran. Jin-Woo often rode Kaisel as his vehicle when fighting or when he couldn’t use Shadow Exchange.
Besides flying, Kaisel’s strength is rarely shown, so many think Kaisel is not as strong as other Monarch subordinates, such as Bellion or Antares’ dragon monster. He currently holds the same Knight rank as Tank.
Jima can be regarded as one of the forgotten Shadow. The resurrected figure of the Dragon Boss that Jin-Woo killed in this A-Rank Dungeon was rarely shown its power.
In his original form, Jima is said to have power armor, which is usually used as a material for making armor and shields for Hunters. Possessing the rank of Elite Knight, Jin-Woo himself mentioned that Jima had power on par with Tusk.
Iron is resurrected from the same place as the Tank. The difference is, Iron is not a monster but an A-Rank Hunter from the White Tiger Guild named Kim Chul. Igris killed him after trying to kill Jin-Woo.
Even though he only comes from the body of an A-Rank Hunter, Iron has grown stronger and now has the rank of Elite Knight. Similar to his original persona, he often rages on the battlefield while swinging a giant ax.
He can also use the Taunt skill (Shout of Provocation), but it is sometimes ineffective on enemies much stronger than him.
Greed was one of the two Shadow Jin-Woo obtained after killing humans. In Greed’s case, he was initially an S-Rank Hunter from the Scavenger Guild, Hwang Dong-Soo.
Greed is considered relatively strong because of the rank General, but his strength has not been shown much until now.
Behind his large body, Tusk is a mage who relies more on magic than physical strength. He can use dozens of magic, including controlling gravity, giving shields to friends, or shooting destructive fireballs (Hymn of the Blazing Fire).
Jin-Woo trusted Tusk with the Orb of Avarice so he could use stronger magic. His Hymn of the Fire Dragon had the power of Baran’s.
Even though he only has the rank of Elite Knight, Tusk is considered equal or even stronger than Shadow with the rank of General because of the buff from Orb of Avarice.
In the latest chapter of the Solo Leveling manhwa, Tusk is also able to sabotage Antares’ communication with Iron Body Monarch.
Igris was one of the first Shadows that Jin-Woo had. His figure looks like a warrior who wears steel armor from head to toe and wields a sword weapon that can emit lightning.
Before serving Jin-Woo, Igris acted as an opponent who was a condition for Jin-Woo to do a Job Change. After successfully performing a Job Change, Jin-Woo performed Shadow Extraction on Igris but failed in the first two attempts.
Although already strong from the start, Igris’s strength increases as the Solo Leveling story progresses. Upon reaching Marshal rank, Igris could talk like Beru and Bellion.
Like a monster that appeared in the S-Rank Gate, Beru’s strength was unquestionable. He single-handedly defeated dozens of S-Rank Hunters from Japan, and South Korea was sent to the Jeju Island expedition.
Beru’s main strength lies in his speed and endurance. He is also the only Shadow who can use Healing Magic, so Jin-Woo often trusts him to heal injured Hunters.
Beru and Igris’ strength was almost equal, but Beru reached Marshal rank earlier than Igris. He is also the most loyal Shadow because he is always worried about his master and will be angry if anyone insults his master.
Kamish had almost joined as one of Jin-Woo’s strongest Shadows. Even though Jin-Woo’s Shadow Extraction was successful, he didn’t last long because he had been dead for more than eight years.
If he joined Jin-Woo, Kamish was predicted to be of the rank of Marshal equal to or even stronger than Beru and Igris.
Bellion was probably the only Shadow Jin-Woo who had never been Jin-Woo’s enemy. As a Shadow loyal to Ashborn, Bellion served Jin-Woo because Jin-Woo was the figure chosen as the successor of his former master.
Bellion had the rank of Grand-Marshal, the highest among all the Shadows that Jin-Woo possessed. His strength is unmatched by other Shadows, and even he can subdue Beru easily.
When sparring with Beru, Bellion uses a giant sword weapon that can be moved flexibly like a whip. Not only fast, but this weapon also has an extremely destructive power.
