The Survival Shard is one of the sixteen Shards of Adonalsium. Virtually nothing known about this Shard, like its intent or the planet it resides.

The one hint to its existence is a cryptic quote that Brandon signed in a book. Responding to the question "Give us the name of a Shard's intent we have not seen before," he wrote, "there is one who just wants to hide and survive."[1] Presumably, this refers to surviving Odium's onslaught, where he Splinters—and kills—Shards.

The Shard's intent is only tangentially related to their desire to hide. The desire comes from their knowledge of events in the Cosmere.[2] This desire to not be caught is "quite intelligent".[3]
