Shadow is a powerful Elemental Power that allows the controller manipulation over darkness itself. While commonly associated with evil, it was not always. It wasn't until the Brotherhood of Makuta became corrupted that it became associated with evil.
Makuta possess a wide range of Elemental Shadow powers and are the main reason that Shadow is typically associated with 'evil' in the BIONICLE universe.
Shadow Matoran represent the Element of Shadow. They contain a minuscule amount of Elemental Shadow Energy. In most universes they do not exist naturally, but instead exist due to the moral light of a Matoran of any element being drained.
Toa of Shadow possess Elemental Power of Shadow, allowing them to create and control any type of shadow. As with Shadow Matoran, they do not exist naturally in many universes, but instead are the result of transformed Shadow Matoran, or a Toa having their moral light drained.
