  • Old-gen console versionMobile Version3DS Version Gives the player 30 defense when below 25% health.

While not normally visible, it displays as a small blue circle spinning around the character that emits light when active.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop VersionConsole Version This accessory works well with the Shrimpy Truffle, which gives the player a damage and speed boost when at or below 50% life.
  • The Frozen Turtle Shell is useful for fighting bosses and events, which usually expose the player to constant damage, thus activating the accessory more often than during regular gameplay.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Despite it being a Turtle Shell, it is dropped by the Ice Tortoise.
  • The buff can be canceled, although it will immediately activate again.

History[edit | edit source]
