Shadow Ghouls are enemies in Drawn to Life. They are the strongest purely-Shadow creatures in Wilfre's army. They will fly after The Hero if they notice them. Shadow Ghouls take approximately four hits to destroy, or two if The Hero is using the Flip Ability or Ground Pounds (since these do double damage).
They are made of Shadow and have a human-like form that is similar to Shadow Walkers. They have no legs so instead of walking, they fly around. They appear to only have one eye, but on some occasions two can be seen.
- Though officially named "Shadow Ghoul", a more accurate name for this enemy would be "Shadow Wraith": ghouls are classically considered to be living corpses or monsters akin to zombies, while wraiths are ghost-like entities.
- This enemy is one of the few enemies to have concept art.
- All other sprites and concept art depict them with having only one eye, but two eyes can be seen in their "death" and "attacking" animations.
