Thorny Shadow Path (Japanese: いばらの影道 Thorny Shadow Path) is a dungeon in Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon that is located on the Grass Continent. It is unlocked after exiting Elegant Gorge via the stairs behind the locked door as a part of Marill's Connection Orb mission.

Prior to entering the dungeon, the game will warn the player of its special conditions: the leader's level will temporarily be set to 5 and teammates cannot be brought along. Additionally, all moves will have their stats temporarily reset to their initial values. However, there are no restrictions on the items or Poké that may be brought into the dungeon. As a unique feature, this dungeon regularly spawns sleeping Ledyba in clusters of four; when one member of the sleeping cluster is disturbed, all the Ledyba wake up instantly.
