The Heal Shell is a type of armor for Bowser in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. According to its artwork, it is a turquoise shell with black spikes and red rings. The Heal Shell has a physical defense rating of 24 and a magical defense rating of twelve points. Like the rest of the final armor series, it can be bought from Croco late in Bowser's Keep, specifically for 100 coins. Despite its English name, the shell offers no healing abilities to the wearer. This is because its name was mistranslated from its Japanese name, Heel Shell.
