Not to be confused with Frozen Half or Frost Elemental.

The Frozen Shade is an enemy in the Castlevania series. It is a wraith that manipulates frigid air. They first appeared in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, where they were female spirits inhabiting the frozen areas of the Underground Caverns.


Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

The Frozen Shade is depicted as a naked female spirit that inhabits the frozen areas of the Underground Caverns. The sections they are found in are icy in appearance, an effect of their cold nature, which also serves as a slight camouflage. They attack by either conjuring a freezing wind against Alucard, or by summoning three rotating ice blades to impale him upon them.

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon

Unlike the rest of her incarnations, where they appear as naked female spirits, in Circle of the Moon Frozen Shades fashion a dress complete with a long skirt. They float about and freeze the air in front of them, forming two iceballs which they then throw at Nathan, one after another. If they connect, Nathan will become frozen, unable to move and left at the mercy of any surrounding enemies, while his DEF also severely drops. Nothing can be done if this happens, though, other than waiting until the effect wears off.

Frozen Shades look and act almost identical to Heat Shades, except for their color and element.

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow

In Dawn of Sorrow, she appears as a blue naked woman floating in the air. She is found in the Subterranean Hell and attacks by conjuring freezing winds, or by launching giant ice blades at Soma.
