* Disney's ''ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' has Dr. Facilier's shadow act sentient from him. Both the doctor and his shadow can take hold of someone, or affect inanimate objects by touching their shadows. [[spoiler:This is turned around on Facilier at the movie's climax when his "friends on the other side" [[DraggedOffToHell come to collect on his debts]].]]

When it comes to fighting in some series, it's not enough to just simply land wounds on someone's body and restrain them using conventional means. No, sometimes you need to go one step farther than usual and show off how {{badass}} you are, and what better way than to use a non-physical part of someone's body to pin them like a fly on a wall -- mainly, their shadow.

* The ''{{Pokemon}}'' Wobbuffet has an ability called Shadow Tag which prevents opposing Pokemon from fleeing or switching out.
** Baton Pass can bypass this effect, but the substitute takes the effect in turn. You cannot manually switch out until Wobbuffet is knocked out, and that might take a while. There are also moves that stop a Pokemon from leaving the battlefield as well, but the one that closest matches this trope is [[TheDarkSide Shadow Hold]].

Since the sixth generation, Shadow Tag doesn't work on Ghost-Type Pokémon anymore.
** Decidueye's SignatureMove Spirit Shackle damages the opponent and prevents it from fleeing or switching out.

* ''Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear'': Tsubasa's Shadow Weaving is a technique where she throws a dagger on the opponent's shadow to seal their movements. Interestingly, it's actually a {{Ninja}} technique taught by her manager Ogawa... who can perform this technique with a ''bullet''.

* Vamp from ''{{Metal Gear Solid 2}}'' can immobilize you if he hits your shadow with a knife. [[spoiler:You can stop him by shooting the overhead lights]]. Unlike most abilities in the series, this has no scientific explanation, though Otacon and Snake do offer an alternative explanation for Vamp's shadow-pinning power. They think it's some kind of hypnotism: "The power of suggestion augmented by his speech and movements, coupled with the manipulation of the light reflecting off the blade of his knife". Raiden only ''thinks'' he's been immobilized.
