In Shadow Fight, Dan is needed to unlock techniques for the player. It is represented by a belt. Every player starts with the lowest dan and increasing the player's dan unlocks harder techniques. The maximum dan level is 10. Players may increase their Dan by passing Dan Tests.
In the Dan Test, players battle against random players. Players may take the Dan Test if they have enough friends on Facebook who play the game, or by using Rubies. The number of battles the player has to finish will always be (their dan level + 1). Like the Tournaments and Bosses battles, there are no weaponry requirements.
However, like the Tower Of Death, the time limit of 150 seconds will not reset after battles and players may only gain back a portion of their health points.
When the player has won all battles, their dan will increase.
