Super Smash Bros. Brawl

A Shellpod is a horned beetle-like enemy with a big brown shell for protection. It appears in The Subspace Emissary in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Shellpod uses its front legs and horns to attack. Its weakness is revealed when the player attacks its shell enough. After the shell breaks, it reveals its true form to be a blue-green creature. Without its armor and horn, it becomes much weaker offensively and defensively.

But what's the deal with the color difference between the Shellpod's legs and shell? Hmmm... Therein lies a seeeeeecret.

Brawl Extensive damage to a Shellpod will reveal its true form and uncover the big secret--it was the ARMOR that made the Shellpod look like a beetle! Well, no wonder the shelled creature had such funny-looking legs! But even without its armor and horn, this weaker Shellpod will still bring the thunder, just slightly less threatening thunder.
