Shadow Gear MK II is a Shadow Walker which appears exclusively in the SNES port of Gradius III. Unlike the original Shadow Gear, its design is more in line with the other Walkers in the series, though it only has four legs. The Shadow Gear MK II is also one of the few Walkers which can actually be destroyed, with its central body serving as its weak spot. You face two of it at the same time.
