The Death Shadow are a set of four space battleships created by Tochiro Oyama using Nibelung technology provided by Miime. These ships brought their captain Harlock fame and prestige during the Homecoming Wars. The fourth ship however was involved in an accident and was later converted into the pirate battleship, Arcadia.

Appearance Edit

The Death Shadow all resembled their original counterparts including the dark colored paint jobs, elongated bodies, and powerful armor.

Abilities and Equipment Edit

The Death Shadow although small in number with only 4 being built, were able to turn the tide in a century long battle, defeating entire fleets with ease under Harlock's command. The prototype dark matter engines allow near unlimited energy, allowing them to run on long periods of time and have weapons with no drawbacks.

Early before the film, the Death Shadow Class is armed with 7 triple barreled energy cannons with 3 at the top and 1 behind and 2 below, the cannons were known to be powerful and have no drawbacks. Other weapons include AA Batteries and 6 forward missile launchers.

Defensively the ship is protected by heavy armor and Dark Matter Shields, other abilities are Self Repair, very likely done by Nano Bots. The Ship also carries 3 Dropships with cranes and is also able to attach and carry Dimensional Oscillation Bombs


History Edit

The Death Shadow ships were developed by Tochiro after acquiring the dark matter technology from Miime. With these ships, Captain Harlock commanded an invincible platoon that was practically undefeated. However when the War was still ongoing, the Gaia Leaders granted themselves permission and returned to earth on 3 Shuttles, taking it as a injustice, humanity retracing a path to total destruction, Harlock decided to form a layer around the Earth to permit no one to return, creating a truly sanctified zone, All 4 Death Shadow Class Battleships unleashed it's Dark Matter Drives, killing it's Niflung host and Crew, leaving the Arcadia and it's Host miime and Harlock the only survivors, the Unleashing of the Dark Matter also fused Tochiro's mind with the ship and later the ship was changed into the Arcadia.
