These are the Top 10 Strongest Characters of Eminence in Shadow………
10. Midgar Alexia
Midgar Alexia is the ex-girlfriend of Cid Kagenou they dated for a while because Alexia wanted to annoy her fiance even though she is the second princess of “Midgar Kingdom”.
She acts like well-mannered royalty in front of everyone but, in reality, she loves looking down on others and thinks they could be swayed easily if offered money. As she thinks that no one is perfect and everyone has one or two faults in them that are also the reason she doesn’t want to marry her fiance because she thinks he is too perfect to be true.
Alexia’s skills are considered mediocre by others as both her swordsmanship and magic are average. Although she does not have the physical development and natural talent for swords like her older sister, through her sheer effort, she has become one of the top students at Midgar Royal Spellsword Academy. But after seeing “Shadow’s” swordsmanship, she was mesmerised because it closely resembles the perfect and ordinary swordsmanship style.
9. Oriana Rose
Oriana Rose was Cid’s upperclassman. She was also the former student council president of Midgar Royal Spellsword Academy after she was the victim of the cult of diablos due to her fiance “Doemu Ketsuhatto” who wants to overtake the “Oriana kingdom”.
She is head over heels for him as she misinterprets Cid’s actions as he confesses to her and believes that Cid is also in love with her. She is considered towards her juniors and classmates.
Rose was considered to be the second strongest student at “Midgar Royal Spellsword Academy” when Iris Midgar was still at the school. Rose has immense physical strength. As we have witnessed that she easily subdued Claire Kagenou. Her magic prowess is not that good but it’s just a little inferior to Iris Midgar.
8. Annerose Nichtsehen
Annerose was a wandering swordsman from the “Velgalta Empire” and was one of the contestants who took part in the Goddess’s Trial. She was the only combatant who was able to summon a “legendary warrior” and win her duel other than “Shadow”.
She has vast admiration for swordsmen. She even tried to help “Jimina Senen” who was holding back his powers to get out of the tournament and after losing to him she even offered him a worthy position in the Velgalta Empire.
She is good at assessing others’ power. She is renowned for her swordsmanship. During the Goddess’s Trial, aside from “Shadow”, she was the only one to have defeated a projection, which impressed even Cid. She was also a favourite to win the Bushin Festival Tournament. Also, she was the only one who could also see the movements of Jimina for a little while other than Beatrix and Iris. Without a doubt she is one of the Top 10 Strongest Eminence in Shadow Characters.
7. Midgar Iris
She is the first princess of the Kingdom of Midgar and was undoubtedly the strongest student at Midgar Royal Spellsword Academy and was considered the strongest swordsman in overall “Midgar Kingdom” during her time.
She is an anger-driven person and does not like “Shadow” for personal reasons and loves her younger sister Alexia more than anything and always protects her.
Both her strength and stamina were close to Beatrix’s and her speed can keep up with the supersonic chase when she fought alongside Beatrix against “Shadow”. Even though she was considered a prodigy with the sword her magical level wasn’t on the level of the “Shadow Garden”. She uses her magic aggressively when fighting and strengthens her body to be able to barely withstand the near-deadly attacks from Shadow, even when he wasn’t using his full power. She also can heal her wounds.
Beta is also from the elf race just like Alpha she is the third member of “Shadow Garden” and has a speciality over knowledge of any kind.
She loves to listen to her master Shadow’s tales of the otherworld which is unknown to her but even if she has so much knowledge she does not hone the skills. By writing the tales that “Shadow” shared with her she even became a famous writer under the pen name of “Natsume sensei”.She is a loyal servant to her master and has good leadership skills.
She is known for her ability to gather information and is a great actor just like her master. Beta is one of the best swordsmen in the entire Kingdom. It’s stated that most of the Knights do not compare to her in swordsmanship. Her magic power is also huge and she has extremely high potential. According to Sid, she is only a little inferior to Alpha in mana capacity.

Delta is a female beastkin which gives her wolf-like traits and because of her beastkin race, she is compatible with search and combat. In hand-to-hand combat, she is second to only Cid in the whole Shadow Garden. Other than Cid nobody can restrain her. She is the 3rd most important member of Shadow Garden & one of the 10 Eminence of Shadow Strongest Characters.
Delta is a simple-minded girl and is quite afraid of alpha for some reason she is open about her love towards her master and is a muscle brain.
Delta’s powers are one the destructible area as she has the most destructible powers in Shadow Garden only just her combat powers and searchability are worth mentioning as she Does not possess any other abilities like swordsmanship but has control over the slime suit which means her magic abilities are far better than those of outside “Shadow Garden”.
Beatrix is assumed as Alpha’s relative because she is also from the elf race. She was the first champion of the Bushin festival and she holds the title of “war goddess”.
Beatrix is simple-minded and what she thinks and is calm-headed and mature but, she is also a fight junkie as started fighting “Shadow”. She has this unfazed look on her face even when fighting with “Shadow”. She was just assessing his strength and was shocked by his powers.
She has high swords skill but doesn’t have a good grip on the magic part. She was recognised by shadow due to her swordsmanship. She was capable to fight “Shadow” and was able to see his moves for a while.
Alpha is the second strongest member of the “Shadow Garden” and is from the elf race. Her power is second to “Shadow” even “Shadow” admits her strength she is also considered a descendant of the hero “Oliver”.
She is a loyal servant to her master and has good leadership skills but when she and Cid are alone she likes to act as his lover. She has the utmost faith in “Shadow” and has seen his full powers, she is considerate towards her comrades and even for others.
Alpha’s powers are second to “Shadow”. Her swordsmanship and magic are acknowledged even by Shadow. She just one shot the mutated girl which Iris was struggling to defeat.
Aurora who once plunged the world into chaos owned the title of ”Witch of Calamity” and also known as the demon “Diablos”, is a mysterious person from the distant past. She is considered as strong as ‘Shadow’ as she was called forth as a projection when Cid summoned a “legendary warrior” to duel against him.
Aurora was very fond of Cid she was even afraid of Cid because even being a human he is more powerful than anyone. She wanted to forget about her past that’s why she called Cid to the sanctuary but ended up not wanting to forget a memory that is of the time she spent with Cid.
As she was called forth as a worthy opponent for “Shadow”, her powers rivalled him. She once rained chaos and destruction down and is also known as the “Witch of calamity”.
1. Cid Kagenou
Cid Kagenou is the mc of the series & also the Strongest Character of Shadow Garden, His goal is to become the Eminence in Shadow.
To put it simply he wants to become the strongest person and would only appear when the world needs him and should vanish away when the problem is solved he doesn’t want any attention as he wants to stay an NPC and does everything to blend in the crowd.
Even though Cid poses himself as an NPC in reality he trains harder than anyone. He is determined to achieve his dream of becoming the Eminence in Shadow and to achieve it he trains himself to become the strongest.
He always thinks of the scenarios and the way he could act just to become the most mob character when he’s Cid and a cool strong character when he’s Shadow. He thinks of everything like a game or a stage and doesn’t take anything seriously else than being the ‘Eminence in the Shadow’.
Cid Kagenou even when he was not reincarnated was quite strong as he was always training to become “Eminence in the Shadow”. He used to beat up robbers with a crowbar as he thinks that crowbars have potential.
After getting reincarnated he got the powers of magic and swordsmanship and also trained and honed his skills to a level that he became the strongest person.
After the end of season 1, it’s clear that Cid is currently the best swordsman and his hand-to-hand combat skill is also on a different level. He ridiculously mocked and defeated Beatrix & Midgar Iris. His control over magic is also excellent. His skills were good enough to turn the mutated monsters into their original forms.

Cid Kagenou is the main protagonist and the strongest character until the season end. Even though he poses himself as an NPC but in reality he works harder than anyone to achieve his dream.
In the end, it is easily noticeable that the power level of “Seven Shades” is that of top class and this is due to Cid Kagenou’s wisdom and knowledge of magic and swordsmanship which he passed to the members of “Shadow Garden” and those of outside of the organisation are thinking that no human can obtain such tremendous strength and that’s why they borrow someone else’s power such as that of “cult of diablos”.But, other than them some people became strong through their sheer efforts.
