 Item Effect
The Green Shell is an item available in Super Smash Bros., Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It has decent knock-back and damage potential when chucked at an opponent. The shell is similar to any other Koopa shell featured in the Mario series. To use it, simply pick it up and throw it at a person or thing (attacking the shell will activate it as well). It will bounce off of walls and can potentially hurt you because of reflector abilities, so watch out.
The Green Shell is not like the Red Shell which will move back and forth on a platform once thrown. The Green Shell will simply keep moving around until it hits something, whether it be a wall, player, or just falling off the edge of the stage. Reflector abilities increase its power so be careful if it heads toward Fox, Falco, Wolf, Zelda or Pit. When using the item, just find a target and throw the Shell at them. The closer you are, the better it is so the target has less time to react. When trying to avoid the item, just be sure to keep a nice distance between you and the person holding it. Give yourself enough reaction time to at least get your shield up. Also, don't think that standing behind the person with this item is too safe. The holder can simply whip around and toss it straight in your face for good damage. Be on your toes, but if you're behind it when it's thrown, it won't head toward you without reflector-abled opponents.
