Trivia

  • Shadow Midas' ID is CID_A_257_Athena_Commando_M_CatBurglar_Ghost.
  • During Update v18.20 his reactivity worked differently as only his left hand was corrupted and the rest of him was gold, to which the corruption would slowly consume Midas and convert all the gold to purple whilst emitting a purplish glow, making him appear much like how he does now. This was changed in Update v18.30 to be all purple from the start and slowly glow.
  • In the Reboot quests in Chapter 2: Season 5, Bunker Jonesy thinks "the Midas that returned isn't the same Midas." This could potentially refer to Shadow Midas, but also to either the original Midas or Midas Rex.

  • After Update v14.50, Shadow Midas was heard speaking at The Ruins before it was destroyed in Chapter 2, Season 5. It was as if he haunted the location and his voice seemed to come from the basement of The Ruins, where the Device was built.
  • His voice lines were based on his original voice lines but they were distorted and/or reversed.
  • Players could play as the outfit during Fortnitemares 2020 by using Mystique's Built-In Emote upon eliminating him.
    • This version of Shadow Midas was one-eyed like the original Midas, and slightly altered from the outfit.

History

Chapter 2: Season 4

Close to the end of Chapter 2: Season 4, Midas who was "killed"[2] attempted to take back the eye of the island. Prior to Halloween 2020, his golden chair mysteriously appeared in The Authority. After a ritual with it was performed, Midas was "resurrected". He as Shadow Midas, in the Midas' Revenge event. He appeared as a boss in the Ruins of the Authority with his own Drum Gun. Shadow Midas successfully managed to "hack" the reboot system and Loop and got rid of Reboot Cards. He also made it so that when Loopers were eliminated, they returned once more as a Shadow, creating his own army of Shadows. His plan would eventually fail and Galactus destroyed The Ruins and the eye of the island by exposing the Zero Point.
