In the Blue Shell (Not a MKI) article it has a section of the Blue Shell (Mario Kart Item) but the Blue Shell (Mario Kart Item) has it own page O rly. YS Grape.gifGrapes YS Grape.gif

Spiny Shell[edit]

Shouldn't this be MERGED with Spiny shell? I mean they're practically the same besides this one has wings and is blue. 22360415-149x149-0-0 ++The+SpongeBob+SquarePants+Movie.jpg Boo der dash 180px-MaskedDedede.png

Always a Spiny Shell[edit]

There is an item box in Koopa Troopa Beach in Mario Kart 64 that always gives a Spiny Shell. YoshiHeadSSBU.png Tails777 Talk to me!SSBUStockIcon - Robin.png

Two articles[edit]

Two articles should be made oe for spiny shell other for flying spiny shell. Back me up plz User:JORDANDEBONO

I don't agree. The flying shell functions exactly the same as the ground shell. A cosmetic difference isn't enough to justify a separate article IMO.--Knife (talk) 13:12, 8 December 2011 (EST)

I agree with Knife's opinion. Bop1996 (Talk)

Name[edit]

Why this page is called Spiny Shell (Mario Kart) if it appears in Mario Superstar Baseball, Mario Hoops 3-on-3, etc.? I think it should be moved or merged. Mechanical Dirge (TalkCont) 17:17, 12 December 2011 (EST)

Destroying the Spiny Shell[edit]

Can't the Spiny Shell be destroyed by a Red Shell in Mario Kart: Super Circuit? SMW2yoshi.gif Super Chris HelperMario.png Sorry but no. It can't.:( YoshiFan08(Talk)(Edits)SMW2yoshi.gif

Weird Phenomenon In Mario Kart Wii[edit]

When I race and I am in 1st place, especially Wi-Fi, sometimes I get a Mushroom from an item box. Seconds later, a Blue Spiny Shell comes ready to kill me. A well-timed use of the Mushroom is pretty much the only way to escape the explosion unharmed, as mentioned in the article. Is this how the game warns you that this cheap item is coming your way? --Wildgoosespeeder 03:56, 7 July 2012 (EDT)

Possibly, but please note that we should save discussions such as this for the forums. Article talk pages are for discussing the article itself, not game strategies.

Title Change[edit]

Shouldn't we set the title of the Mario Kart shell as "Spiny Shell" and the other one "Spiny Shell (???)" ? The first is way more popular, so it shouldn't have brackets. But it's hard to give a proper title to the seconde one...

No. While this may be more popular, the other spiny shell is a spiny's shell. We don't go by popularity here. Anyways, this needs a TPP. --Bowser Jr Emblem MKW.png BowserJunior RULES! 00:21, 29 December 2012 (EST)
Actually, the naming policy does state that the more popular subject gets the non-identifier title.

Technically the actual spiny's shell would be more popular because it appears more often. Marshal Dan Troop (talk)
But if you still want a name change, you should make a TPP about this. A significant move is too important for a simple discussion. --NSMBWIIEJr.png BowserJunior RULES! 12:31, 29 December 2012 (EST)
I don't think it's that significant
Banon (talk · edits) 10:12, 4 January 2013 (EST)
It may appear more often, but when someone says "Spiny Shell" 90% think about the Mario Kart one. The Spiny's shell appearances besides Paper Mario and Mario Strikers games are very minor : they are just worn by Spinies. Plus, the Mario Kart Spiny Shell has a longer article, but this might not mean it's more popular.
Banon (talk · edits) 10:12, 4 January 2013 (EST)
How about Blue Spiny Shell? That would make more sense and cause less confusion between the Spiny Shell and Blue Shell

Unless it is officially named that, this should not be done. Yoshissm-animated walk.gif Yoshi the SSM (talk) 14:37, 2 December 2017 (EST)

Mario Kart 8?[edit]

Why did you say it is in Mario Kart 8? It did not come out of the item box.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by ‎98.117.71.18 (talk).

There was an interview confirming its appearance. Yoshi876 (talk)
I think it might be possible to destroy a blue shell with a green shell. I was playing Mario Kart 8 one time, and I saw a green shell fly into the back of a blue shell as it was going by and destroy it. Could someone please try this? --Reversalmushroom (talk) 06:15, 29 April 2015 (EDT)

Battle Mode[edit]

Does anyone know what happens in battle mode if two players on the same team are tied for the highest number of points and a blue shell is fired towards them?

Who would the blue shell hit?
