It is one of the most powerful types of foes in Daemonheim, and can easily kill a player. It uses a mixture of Magic (blue-coloured) and Ranged (yellow-coloured) attacks, which are powered evenly. They are very dangerous and can deal very high damage for their level - even a mid-levelled shade can hit into the 800s regularly. They are weak to melee attacks, particularly from crushing weapons such as warhammers and mauls. For using prayer against exceptionally strong shades, either use Protect from Ranged or Protect from Magic or their respective Curse equivalents. Ranged armour offers the best overall defence against their attacks. If there is a single shade in a room (as there often is if soloing), it is almost always about as strong as the player and is likely to exhaust a player's food/prayer quickly if they are wearing melee armour.
This is one of the monsters within Daemonheim that will switch targets when in a multi-combat area, instead of continuing to attack the first player it sees. Thus if a group encounters a high level shade and one happens to get attacked, the shade will change target and during this time, the latter can have time to heal or run away.
In a Monolith puzzle room, however, the shades which appear tend to concentrate only on which player attacks them first, but if they kill their target they will become aggressive to all the other players in the room and attack each of them randomly.
- Please note that the quantities and rarities are random.

- The Mysterious Shades look similar like Echned Zekin, the 'captured' form of the demon Nezikchened, which the player has to fight during the Legend's Quest.
- Mysterious shades do count for slayer if a player is given a task of shades.
- There's a ghost wandering on the north shore of Daemonheim that looks like a Mysterious Shade.
