Yamino Kageto (闇野(やみの) カゲト), also known as Shadow (シャドウ), is a student who transferred to Raimon in order to join its soccer club after his own school was destroyed by Aliea Gakuen. He's a forward for Raimon and also for the Dark Emperors. He was also chosen as a candidate for Inazuma Japan but he didn't pass.





He has a spiky grey hair, and pure black eyes. He has a gloomy or serious expression all the time.


He is mostly quiet and calm, and rarely talks unless he has to. At first he joined Raimon because he loves strong players but he really loves soccer deep inside.


Season 2

Shadow transferred to Raimon during the invasion of the Aliea Gakuen. But because the members of Raimon Eleven had already left in the Inazuma Caravan, Shadow was left behind. Because of this, he went training with Sugimori Takeshi to perfect his hissatsu technique, Dark Tornado. Later, Endou Mamoru and the others returned to Inazuma Town and met Shadow. He stayed behind when the others left again as his shoot wasn't quite ready. After the destruction of Aliea Gakuen, Endou and the others returned back to Raimon to find that the other members, including Shadow, Nishigaki and Sugimori, turned to the Aliea Meteorite, becoming the Dark Emperors. They came back to their senses after seeing Endou's God Hand.

Three months later, Shadow was chosen as a candidate for the Inazuma Japan in Inazuma Japan B but failed the match. In episode 68, he is shown that he could sense dark aura from people like Midorikawa Ryuuji. After Inazuma Japan won the FFI and return to Raimon, they moved to graduation, and Shadow also graduated. In the last episode, Shadow plays along with Raimon in their graduation match. he has evolved Dark Tornado to 真, but was blocked by Endou, who used 真 Ijigen The Hand.


Shadow is initially part of the "Go home" club from Raimon, and hangs out by the lockers in the main building. When Endou asks him to join, Shadow initially wonders if Endou hasn't noticed that he can only exist in darkness, but, if Endou insists, he's surprised by his lack of fear and joins Raimon immediately. He warns Endou though about not letting his darkness consume him too. If Endou refuses, Shadow says that Endou is afraid of the dark, just like others.

  • 'Yami' means darkness, a pun to his personality and his hissatsu Dark Tornado, and 'Kage' means Shadow which was probably due to his nickname. So Yamino Kageto could mean "The Darkness of Shadow" it can also mean "Dark field of Shadow".
  • In the dubbed versions, Kidou says that Kageto is a forward for Mikage Sennou, even though his original school is never mentioned in the original.
