Rumplestiltskin's shadow is a character on ABC's Once Upon a Time that appears as the disembodied shadow of Rumplestiltskin.


Season 3

Rumplestiltskin uses his dagger to cut off his own shadow, which becomes alive, then commands his shadow to hide the dagger in a location that not even Rumplestiltskin will find. The shadow does this, but when Rumplestiltskin wants it back so that he can defeat Peter Pan, Rumplestiltskin's shadow returns to Rumplestiltskin's body, thus giving him the dagger.
