Shadi is a character in the Toei Yu-Gi-Oh! anime. This is the series incarnation of Shadi Shin, from the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga.


Shadi went to Domino Museum to pass judgment on the organizers of an archaeological dig on an Egyptian tomb, which he regarded as defilement on the territory of the gods. He first played a Shadow Game with Curator Kanekura, in which he performed the Weighing of the Heart, using the Millennium Scales. He placed the Feather of Ma'at in one side of the scales and as he asked Kanekura a series of questions, his sins would add weight to the other side. He asked a series of questions to test Kanekura's morality. As he lied the sins side of the scales gained weight. Before the last question, Shadi used an illusion to transform Kanekura's chair into Ammit. The final question was if Kanekura had defiled the territory of the Gods for money. He begged Shadi to stop, offering to pay any amount of money. However this caused the sins side of the scales to hit the table. Shadi then inflicted a Penalty Game, where Kanekura was rendered unconscious by the illusion of Ammit.[1]
