Shellpods is a kind of an enemy that appears in the Subspace Emissary in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. They walk on four legs and come with a huge shell that covers their face. It is a tougher foe, taking a lot of damage before it is defeated.
However, when a player makes a Shellpod lose enough health, its shell will fall off and it will let out a screech. Its main attack is head-butting the player.
An enemy reminiscent of a horned beetle. A Shellpod can exhibit extraordinary destructive power thanks to the strength generated in its beefy front legs and its threatening long horn. Taking a hit from this bad boy spells trouble. But what's the deal with the color difference between the Shellpod's legs and shell? Hmmm... Therein lies a seeeeeecret.
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.
