Trivia

  • Shadow Midas' CID is CID_A_257_Athena_Commando_M_CatBurglar_Ghost.
  • 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.
  • He is an alternate version of Midas.
  • The only way to have played as the original version of Shadow Midas would have been during Fortnitemares 2020 by using Mystique's Built-In Emote upon eliminating him.
  • The Fortnitemares 2020 version of Shadow Midas was one-eyed like the original Midas.
