Counterpart: The Shadow
First Appearance (Manga): Chapter 38

Shade (Kanji: 影像, Katakana: シェイド, Romaji: Eizō) is one of the Clear Cards which Sakura secured after the mysterious clearing of the Sakura Cards.


Shade takes the form of a black silhouette in the shape of a dragon, with two large wings on the back, prominent claws and two tails. It has a long neck with protruding spikes, horns and two long mustaches coming out of its face. Yuna D. Kaito remarks how it resembles the Jabberwocky.


In Chapter 38, Shade appears after Sakura was shrunk and sent flying, she tries to lock it in with Spiral, but failed. When Syaoran uses The Shadow to protect her, Sakura understands that it is the same situation as with the Clow Cards, managing to use Blade to string Shade to a tree and secure it. Seeing everything that happened, Kaito speculates that the card was created because being shrunk makes Sakura remembering the story of Alice Through the Looking Glass.
