Shell Mario (sometimes referred to as Blue Shell Mario) is one of Mario's Power-Ups. Mario can access this form by putting on a Blue Shell.


Shell Mario can act like a Koopa Shell. With running speed, Shell Mario can slide across the ground inside his shell. While sliding, he bounces off of several walls and blocks, and can even break Brick Blocks or open Question Blocks. However, the downside is that Mario cannot control the horizontal movement the shell when sliding. He can still jump and stop whenever he wants, but moving goes automatic. The shell is also very durable and can withstand various kinds of damage, almost similar to Hammer Mario. It's good at taking out enemies with ease.
