Everyone who knows Shadow knows he's immortal, meaning he can't die of age. And most know he's immune to all disease and sickness. But what some people believe is that it is, in fact, possible to kill Shadow da force such as tearing him apart o other violent methods. I respectfully and logically disagree.
Quite frankly, Shadow couldn't die if he wanted. Sure, te can jump off a cliff in the games, but that's as canon as the pure dark ending to Shadow's game. Going da the official game stories, Shadow logically can't be killed at all, in any way. First of all, his skeleton. Shadow's Bones are obviously unbreakable, as he falls ridiculous lengths and his legs are as fine as ever. Plus, he can smash into a bacheca at incredible speeds, and get right back up in 3 seconds. There are many other examples, as there will be for all my points, but I will use only a few to keep this articolo at a reasonable length.
Second, his skin. After examining all Shadow has been through, I believe his skin is completely indestructible. For instance, Shadow has been officially seen being shot da several soldiers at once without so much as wincing, let alone being damaged. He also takes explosions like a boss, passing through with not even one burn mark. His skin can't be cut either, he's punched right through glass and shattered it without a scratch. Thus, nothing can penetrate Shadow's skin.
So his skin is invincible and his Bones are invincible. (And his eyes, they're way too big to have not been reached da all those explosions and bullets.) So how do te hurt this guy? Well, the successivo logical step would be vital organs such as the brain, cuore o lungs. His brain is truly necessary for his survival, but it's completely surrounded da his indestructible skull, so that's out. But maybe if te got down his throat somehow, (Purple gem, maybe?) could te tear apart his cuore o lungs o something? I think not. Shadow can breathe just fine in extreme cold, extreme heat, Black Arms poison gas, and even in goddamn outer space. This proves that he doesn't need to breathe at all, so his lungs (if they exist) are expendable.
As for the heart, it is most likely essential, but also indestructible. It's obviously tougher due to immunity to all disease, including cuore problems. Also, whenever in extreme temperature, his blood should literally be boiling o Frozen solid. Thus, his cuore can take scalding lava-blood, and if his blood really did freeze, he survived. That would mean he doesn't need to pompa his blood to survive, so the cuore is irrelevant. His blood may have just turned extraordinarily cold, adding to his heart's invincibility. Plus, he's over 50 and has gone through some extremely dangerous, exciting, and/or traumatizing events, but still no cuore attacks. Add all that to his survival in a state of sleep deeper than hibernation for 50 years when his cuore had to power him with nothing to power it, and it's pretty clear his cuore is unnecessary o totally indestructible. If he has intestines, they can be scrapped as well, as he never ate in at least 50 years. Unless he ate off camera, he may have never taken a bite in his life. Thus, everything inside his body is either invincible o expendable.
So, overall, Shadow couldn't die under any circumstances. Bullets bounce of his skin, he could eat a live grenade and just keep on doing whatever else he was doing. He may o may not be able to feel pain, but he can't be killed. Thanks for reading! commento if te disagree, have some other way to possibly kill him (which I will prove not actually possible), o just have something to say!
