|First Appearance||Nature Warrior|
Nightshade appears in Nature Warrior as the primary antagonist, having captured the mystical and rather unknown galaxy Umbron in order to use it as his base of operations to do a personal takeover of the world. During his quest, he attempts to kidnap princess Crymsia, although constantly fails.
Nightshade is malevolent, angry, and heated up by almost anything, and is extremely greedy. He's willing to do anything it takes to achieve his goals, but will usually be wise and back out of a bad situation if he comes up against one, and will stop himself if he knows he might cross lines or put himself at a disadvantage. As someone who loses a lot, he tries to learn all his weaknesses and protect himself from getting them exploited.
Sometimes he can actually come across as extremely lazy or somewhat intelligent, or both, and will get into periods of rambling over his past, the situation he's involved in, and how he's going to capture Crymsia, even around Crymsia if his laziness gets the complete and utter best of him. He gets really offended when treated as a joke, stomping the ground in a temper tantrum.
Nightshade is mostly capable of building machines and using tools to march forward with his goals. All of his machines sport monochrome colors with hints of red for simplicity reasons, and most of them have a way or two to capture the floral princess. While his mechanic talent does not match that of his magic talent, it's certainly formidable.
His main ability is held in magic, and he can fire multi color spells of different elements to confuse his opponents about his fighting style. The magic, while usually used as an offense, can also be used create a dark, thin shield and can be used to heal himself. His long, left arm has a very long reach and can move very quickly, allowing it to just about replace the missing right arm.
Relationships with other characters
Wanting to capture Crymsia for her body and fortune, it's easy to see why they're enemies. He wants to steal her and her belongings, which isn't much appreciated by others, who often beat him up or torment him, especially in the case of her friends.
- Nightshade's name comes from the nightshade plant.
