"I am the Shadow Man and I will never harm the person under whose bed I live."~ The Shadow Man's credo
He is first seen when he comes out from under a bed and tells Danny that he is the Shadow Man, and that he will never harm the person under whose bed he lives. Then he leaves. He then attacks two children. The following night, Danny falls asleep but wakes up to the shadow man, who once again states how he will not hurt Danny and then leaves. Danny tries to take a picture of him but the flash doesn't work. The Shadow Man shows up at the park. Eric runs off, but Danny, unafraid, stays. The Shadow Man begins choking Danny, who asks in shock why the Shadow Man is choking him.
The Shadow Man states his credo about never harming the person under whose bed he lives, but then says he is a Shadow Man from someone else's bed.
"I am the Shadow Man, and I will never harm the person under whose bed I live."
"But, I am a Shadow Man from under someone else's bed."
