Green Shells are items in Mario Kart, and one of the oldest Mario Kart items. These are the green shells of Koopas. A racer using a shell can shoot it ahead or behind them in an attempt to hit an opponent. However, it is shot in a straight line, so hitting another kart with a green shell is hard, harder when shot backwards since it can be seen by anyone who would be hit by the shell. Although it will only travel straight, it will bounce off walls, although it will fall off the track or break if it hits a kart or wall enough times. This item can be found in any place, but it will seem more common in higher places since higher places have less other items to obtain.
