Iron Shadow Dragon Mode is an ability that can be gained by an Iron Dragon Slayer after having eaten shadow.[1] After the shadows and iron inside their body fuse together, the user gains the ability to enhance certain spells with shadows,[2] while still being able to use their basic Iron Dragon Slayer Magic. The user also gains the ability to transform their body into shadows, granting them a high level of adaptability.[3]
