However, it was revealed that part of Nene's power survived and ended up in a Cube World where Nene regain his power in the form of an evil Killer Bat until he gave it up to save Himiko.
Killer Bat like the rest of the Shadows was later absorbed by the Egg of Light, two years after the Block World incident.
