This article refers to Lynx in Shadow Fight 2. For other uses, see Lynx (disambiguation).

I'm the leader of the Assassin's Order; you are not worthy of fighting me! At least your "battle" with Shin was entertaining.
–Lynx belittling Shadow.

Lynx is a demon boss in Shadow Fight 2. He is the first demon to be encountered In the game. Lynx has five bodyguards, which need to be defeated before the player can fight him. Lynx is the founder and the leader of an assassin organization known as "The Order". His bodyguards are members of the organization. He is the only enemy who has the Time Bomb enchantment on a weapon.


Lynx looks much like the stereotypical Ninja, clad in gilded black Armor and a mask which leaves only his eyes and the upper portion of his nose exposed. He bears the Demons' symbol on his shoulder, headband, and belt.

In the Old Wounds timeline, Lynx does not wear the headpiece that he wears in Shadow's timeline and only has a piece of black cloth covering his nose and mouth. He wears a sleeveless dark-grey jacket with bright gold highlights and light-grey patches. He is also shown to have black hair which he wears in a bun. He also wears shiny light-silver armor on his forearms and has black cloth covering his biceps and elbows. He has pupils whereas in Shadow's timeline he does not have any. The symbol he has on his armor has similar appearance to the symbol in Hermit's Armor.


Sensei's Story Part 1: The Witness

Lynx, along with his bodyguards Spark and Cleric, chases after the Prince before Sensei bumps into them and Prince asks for his help, saying that they're trying to murder him. Lynx tries to deceive Sensei by stating that the Prince is out of his mind and they were tasked with bringing the Prince back home. After seeing that Sensei is not believing it, Lynx decides to eliminate Sensei in order to remove witness. Sensei, however, manages to defeat Lynx and his bodyguards, saving the Prince's life. It is later revealed that Lynx was hired by Hermit in order to eliminate the Prince.

Act I: Hero Reborn

Lynx first appears at the tutorial, when Sensei tells Shadow that he thinks that he is ready to defeat Lynx, noting that he is still in shape. Lynx does not acknowledge Shadow's appearance, calling him a "lowly worm" and saying that Shadow is not worthy of fighting him. Lynx believes he is too superior to bother wasting his time fighting Shadow, and introduces Shin, the weakest member of his organization. He demands that Shin be defeated before he can have a chance of battling him.

When Shin is defeated, Lynx steps forward and introduces himself. He explains that he is the leader of the Assassin's Order. He states that Shadow is not worthy of the honor of battling him, but comments that the "battle" with Shin was entertaining, despite mocking him as well, stating that their battle was hardly a battle.

Lynx disappears for a time, until all of his bodyguards are defeated in combat and he has no choice but to face Shadow. When he is defeated, he is in denial. He becomes worried, because his entire organization is at stake. But when he learns that Shadow is only interested in his Seal, he hands over the seal with no complaints, calling the Seal a mere trinket. He tells Shadow to be gone from his sight, and warns him that he will not forget what Shadow has done.

Gates of Shadows

Lynx appears once more at the Gates of Shadows, where he attempts to stop Shadow from using the demon seals to lock him and the other demons away. At the Gates of Shadows, Lynx must be fought once again but this time he is fought in the company of his fellow demons. Before the fight, he greets Shadow.


After the Gates of Shadows, Lynx must be fought once again. This time, Lynx is fighting for a good cause, as he does not want Shadow to re-open the Gates of Shadows in order to save May, who was captured by Titan. He states that Titan is all-powerful and will wreak havoc upon their realm if Shadow were to open the Gates.

Equipment and Abilities

Lynx uses three-bladed claws as his primary weapon. He is the first enemy encountered to use ranged weapons (Shurikens and Throwing Daggers). Both his claws and ranged weapons are enchanted with Time Bomb and Poisoning. The chance to get inflicted is very high, regardless of the player's level and Armor power. His special demon ability allows him to disappear in a puff of smoke and turn invisible.

He uses Modified Light Helm as his helmet. ( It is not available in the store but it is similar to the Light Helm unlocked at Level 2 during Act 1 ). He will start using ranged weapons and invisibility after the player defeats him once. Upon reaching the Gates of Shadows and during the Interlude, he uses Force Wave as his Magic.


Lynx is an arrogant character, believing very strongly in his abilities and viewing those who serve him as insignificant. He will not entertain any challengers until they have proven "worthy" of the honor of fighting him, a sign of his arrogance and belief of his own superiority over others.

Lynx, despite being arrogant and viewing most other people other than himself as pawns, he does value his organization the Assassin's Order highly. He is terrified at the prospect of losing his authority over the organization after he is defeated by Shadow, and is relieved to learn that Shadow is only after the seal he bears.

Lynx is extremely aggressive and quick-footed in combat, and his assassins respect and fear him immensely. He is also known to be deceitful and cunning, as he managed to trick Ghost, a skilled assassin, into serving him.

Lynx does admit when an opponent is stronger than him, however - even if it is extremely rare. This is shown when Lynx opens up about his extreme fear of Titan, and does everything in his power to prevent Titan from being freed. Lynx acknowledges Titan's strength. Lynx's inferiority to Titan is shown when Lynx is rendered incapable of movement from just hearing the voice of Titan ringing in his head.
