Rise of Green Ninja

He appeared again in Chapter 5. He was looking over a weapons transfer until Green Ninja appeared to stop him. But Batman got involved, giving him a chance to escape.

Andy and Zatanna: The New Adventures
Shadow is among the 42 Forces of Garmadon villains on the roster. He made another appearance in a number of stories as one of the main villains. He's also leader of the Forces of Garmadon when Garmadon is absent. He's known to have a severe hatred for the Justice League.
Andy and Helena: An Origin Story of Green Ninja and Huntress
Shadow was main villain in the prequel to Rise of Green Ninja and Andy and Zatanna. He had the control of the police force of New Ninjago due to most of it's officers being corrupt. Shadow made a deal with Commissioner Frank Devins, in return for 'bailing out any soldiers in jail', he would make Devins look good for the people.
He first faced a younger Green Ninja and felt he could take him on. Garmadon contacted him saying that Green Ninja is the hero destined to defeat him. With Skales, Samukai, Kozu and Cryptor, they planned to cause more problems for Green Ninja and Huntress. But things started to go bad for him when the two destroyed a Dark Matter mine. Shadow was enraged at this. So as revenge, he ordered 40'000 soldiers to attack New Ninjago via the sewers system. But Green Ninja opened the floodgates and swept them out.
Shadow was the last standing against Green Ninja and Huntress. He told him about Garmadon's philosophy that the world doesn't deserve to be saved. He faced the two in a huge fight but was no match for their teamwork. After his defeat, he was told he wouldn't terrorize the people of New Ninjago any longer. Shadow replied 'Hatred is the only thing people understand. If I can't teach you that, my master will'. He was then taken to prison.

Emotionless, cold, angry and blood thirsty, Shadow will kill anyone for the littlest reason. He has no regard for anyone except Garmadon. He feels that Garmadon is the only person that really matters.
Shadow suffers the same thing all Forces of Garmadon leaders suffer. For the smallest thing, he erupts in a frightening rage. He was also trained to push heroes over the line and to manipulate people to believe Garmadon and his forces are the answer to a better world.
