In Mario Kart, the Blue Spiny Shell is the harbinger of death and broken friendships. But, is there actually a Koopa in the Mario universe that wears this shell clad in spikes?


1 Answer 1


The only creature I've found with the Blue Spiny Shell is Sky-Blue Spiny, and is found in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.

Sky-Blue Spiny

There was a similar one in old Super Mario Bros. 3: enter image description here

If they aren't defeated in time, Spinies will flip themselves over and their shell will turn from red to green (and from green to blue if it happens a second time), making it faster.
