Well I don't know how many you want, but additionally:
1) The face dired-marked inherits from it.
2) The face ido-incomplete-regexp inherits from it.
3) The face iswitchb-invalid-regexp inherits from it.
4) The face cvs-fi-conflict-face is an alias for it.
5) The face compilation-error inherits from it.
and presumably more uses for shadow have been found since it was created
(I use it for out of scope watch expressions for a start).
