Black Shell
Black Shell
A Black Shell from Mario Kart Arcade GP.
Description Explodes on impact to any object, wall or character.
First appearance Mario Kart Arcade GP (2005)
Latest appearance Mario Kart Arcade GP DX (2013)

One of the many Prize Items introduced in Mario Kart Arcade GP is the Black Shell. It also returns for Mario Kart Arcade GP 2 and Mario Kart Arcade GP DX. The Black Shell can be thrown or deployed behind a Kart like a regular Green Shell, but instead of bouncing, it detonates on impact, dealing massive damage.


The Black Shell is great for taking out a group of opponents who are close together, as it has AOE damage. It can also be shot from behind to clear out any nearby racers.
