Shadow Form is one of Sora's forms from Kingdom Hearts.
Sora turned into a Shadow Heartless after his second fight with Riku. He is only in this form briefly and can only jump and run around. (If the Start button is pressed when Sora is in this form, Sora's menu cannot be accessed.) However, due to Kairi's heart, he was able to recover into his human form again.
Since he was a Heartless, albeit temporarily, he created a Nobody that became known as Roxas. Oddly, Sora could not do a lunge attack like all other Shadows. This probably has something to do with Sora's strong heart, which is the reason he can wield the Keyblade. Heartless only attack beings of light, or Nobodies, but because there were only Heartless around, Sora couldn't attack anything. Kairi's being there can be explained by Sora's strong heart, meaning he can't attack beings of light either, meaning he can't attack at all.
While this event gave birth to Roxas, it also gave birth to the unusual Nobody, Naminé, who is born from Sora's body and soul, but from Kairi's heart. That is the very reason Naminé has control over Sora's memory in Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories.
It is confirmed by Tetsuya Nomura that this event triggered a side effect and created the Anti Form when Sora was given his new clothes and Drive Form abilities a year later.
- During this form, Sora is unable to activate any of the lift nodes to bring him back to the ground floor, and has to rely on jumping off the sides of the building. However,If he jumps too far however and lands in the ravine below, the lift node activates to bring himself back to ground level.
