Damian Shade (デミアン・シェイド) is a character in Groove On Fight. While he basically only watches over Gartheimer's battle in the background, he can be made into a playable character by beating the game with any two characters in the console port. It is possible to play as him in the original arcade version via hacking, but he's in a very incomplete state. Damian was voiced by Seiji Kawagishi.

About Damian Edit

Damian is an orphan, who was adopted by the Gartheimer family. With time, he became a very special person to his master, Rudolph. Damian is a pacifist and dislikes violence, but his personality totally changes if someone tries to hurt his master. He has a special power that allows him to heal a living being just by touching them.

Relative Characters Edit


Damian pi-LP



  • He and Rudolph Gartheimer are the first openly gay couple in a fighting game.
  • It seems that at one point, Damian was meant to be playable in the original arcade version, since there's an incomplete (but playable) version of him that can be accessed by ROM hacking. One possible lead to this being true is that Gartheimer doesn't have a selectable "official" tag partner in this version, indicating Damian to fill that spot. He was completed for the console port of the game.
