暗影恶魔 is a menacing 远程 近战 英雄 who is most powerful in the early game for his strong set of spells. 崩裂禁锢 takes an enemy or ally out of the fight, banishing them to a shadowy realm and returning them a short time later along with two hostile demonic 幻象. 灵魂猎手 can curse his victims with vulnerability, causing them to take more damage from attacks and spells. His 暗影剧毒 can 骚扰 any unfortunate foe he encounters, gradually dealing more damage with each application until the Shadow Demon releases the poison from the target in a powerful, damaging burst. 邪恶净化, his 终极技能, is key for securing kills: The Shadow Demon greatly slows his fleeing victim and removes all purgeable buffs, crippling and weakening them, while also (when upgraded with 阿哈利姆神杖) applying a 破坏 that disables almost all passive skills. Heavily reliant on the coordination and effectiveness of his own team, Shadow Demon proves to be incredibly strong as a defensive support by keeping his teammates alive reliably and as an offensive support by amplifying damage and endlessly slowing enemies until they're unable to escape. A formidable ally, who requires little farm to contribute greatly to his team, good positioning and timing from Shadow Demon's spells can make all the difference, and makes for one of the most potentially powerful supports well into the late game. `

|定位：||辅助 控制 先手 爆发|
|玩法风格：||Conspiring to gain power in material plane, the Shadow Demon patiently amassed himself a cult of followers. An entity of malevolent corruption, he spreads Shadow Poison to pollute the pure, compounding its effects with Soul Catcher. Heroes sent into the void of Disruption are temporarily hidden, but return with two illusions under his command. A Demonic Purge strips unneeded servants of every enchantment, effectively relieving them of their duties—and their lives.|
- In Dota, Shadow Demon's hero name was Eredar. This was removed in his transition to Dota 2 to avoid copyright issues with Blizzard as the Eredar are a race of magic wielders from the Warcraft universe.
- Shadow Demon's fun/alternate name was "Giblet", innards of birds that are used in cooking.
- All of his spell sound effects are based on some of his voice lines in the demon language "Ozkavosh". This 播放 line (" Sa nith icha gluth.") is used for 崩裂禁锢, the first part of this 播放 line ("Ozh icha tak izh") is used by 灵魂猎手, this 播放 is used by 暗影剧毒 and this 播放 line ("Ozh icha tak lash") is split up into 3 parts and then used by 邪恶净化.
