Intially Big Shadow thought the ultimate weapon would be the Giant Devil robot, designed by the late Professor Gill, but after Kikaida and 01 destroyed the nearly finished model Big Shadow placed his hope for world conquest on "the child of the Devil" Zadam instead.
Until episode 20, Big Shadow's "right-hand-man" was Shadow Knight. In episode 20 Big Shadow moved Gill Hakaida into that role. After the appearance of Zadam (episode 25), Hakaida found himself demoted from second in Shadow to third and Shadow Knight to fourth. Shadow Knight attempted to redeem himself by destroying Kikaida 01 in episode 27 but was himself destroyed. With the appearance of Bijinda in episode 30, Hakaida may have found himself in fourth place if she hadn't switched sides joining 01 in fighting against Shadow. Waruda (introduced in episode 37) usurped Hakaida's role as the one assigned to destroy 01. Eventually Big Shadow tired of Waruda's failing and assigned 5 other swordsman the task of destroying 01 (episode 45).
Just as the Dark Demolition Corps monsters all had a color in their names the Shadow Organization monsters are all numbered, the number is usually (though not always) printed on their back. They do NOT appear in numerical order.
