- "First Panama, teach them the lesson they should have learned long ago. And then the rest of the world."
- ―The Shadow Lord to his army
The Shadow Army was a supernatural army created by the Shadow Lord. The Army was composed of all kinds of unliving objects which were turned into living creatures by the Shadow Lord. The Army was controlled by the Shadow Lord's magic, though he had some problems with them at the beginning, when they unintentionally destroyed his ship to find the material to make more shadow creatures. During the Shadow Lord's conquest, the Shadow Army destroyed Panama, and the shadow creatures were supposed to destroy the Brethren Court, but they ultimately failed because their master was defeated by Captain Jack Sparrow.
