Shadow Troopers wear metallic blue, black, and red armor, depending on their rank. Blue is for basics, black is for elites, and red is for beast tamers. Their faces are covered by black visors that are shaped like overlapping plates, and and they wear black suits similar to Alien Magma's under their armor.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit

The Shadow Troopers were the grunts of the Shadow Empire. At multiple times they were sent to defeat Nova, but usually failed. Several Beast Tamers controlled creatures known as Astro Dinosaur, Spacer and Azteczaurus but the beasts were freed and Nova killed the tamers.
- The Shadow Troopers were inspired by the Sith Troopers in KOTOR II, and share their name with a stormtrooper variety from The Force Unleashed.
