Shadow Metal

Shadow Metal (不在金属シャドウメタル Fuzai Kinzoku (Shadō Metaru)?, lit. "Nonexistent Metal") is a rumored metal which doesn't exist naturally in the world.

Principles[]

Depiction of esper abilities clashing, circumstances which can supposedly create Shadow Metal

According to Saten Ruiko, rumor has it that when hundreds of esper abilities clash (like during the Daihaseisai), a metal is created which doesn't naturally exist.[1]

During the Daihaseisai, Saten Ruiko, having learnt about the rumor concerning Shadow Metal, tried to investigate it, getting into trouble in the process.[1][2][3][4] At that time, the rumor was described as having developed from the increased security to prevent people from stealing DNA maps during the games, apparently baseless.[2][4]

Shadow Metal coating on the ground.

However, during the Level 6 Shift attempt on Misaka Mikoto and the efforts of Kamijou Touma and Sogiita Gunha to save her, a metallic substance was formed from the clash between Mikoto and Gunha's powers when he made a path for Touma to get to Mikoto. After the experiment was stopped, Gunha took notice of the area was now covered with a strange metal coating.[5][6]

Later, Aleister Crowley retrieved the Shadow Metal since he watched their fight through UNDER LINE.[7]
