Plot Summary: Shadow boy or Shadar is a frozen warrior that is awaken to fight demons, witches, monsters and ghosts commanded by Spectro or Ghostar, the king of demons.

Sinister and dark tones to the show with virgin sacrifices, people being burned alive and families broken. There are two distinct phases in the show, the first one more childish with a talking dog as a companion, and a second phase where Shadar kills a vampire family and took the orphan as a sidekick, named Rocco.
