Super Paper Mario description Rams into enemies when you kick the shell.

A Shell Shock is an item in Super Paper Mario. Its design comes from the 8-bit sprite of a Green Koopa Troopa's shell from the game, Super Mario Bros.

When the player kicks the shell, it ricochets away and rams into enemies, damaging them. But it will also hurt the player when it bounces back, just like an actual Koopa Shell. Using the item activates a minigame where the shell bounces around the screen, and the player must press A Button while hovering over it with a crosshair. If the player succeeds, the shell grows to almost three times its original size, but if the player fails, it stays small.

If the player gives this item to Saffron to cook, she will make a Courage Shell.
