The shadow self archetype represents the traits that one doesn’t like in themselves or even tries to cover up. The shadow self of Pi is especially shown when Pi retells his story toward the end of the book.

We also see this is a shadow self since Pi used a tiger to describe that part of himself instead of admitting it was him.
