The Shadow Team is a small group currently consisting of Shadow Assassin, Spyro, Robin, Shadow the Hedgehog, and Dark Knight Super Monkey. Their goal is to stop Ripto from attacking Dragon Soul and performing any other plans he may have. They currently are away from the main gang. The group was first formed in The Dream Dimension.
- The name was formed because Moon Snail didn't want to constantly refer to the group as "Shadow Assassin, Spyro and Robin".
- They're always a few rooms ahead of the gang, but never perform any of the tasks in the rooms. They just rush through them to get to Ripto faster.
