|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.
