"Hey, Mario! Since you didn't want that cake, I ate it. It was delicious. The most delicious I've ever eaten. Strawberries, frosting, the works. Man, you don't know what you were missing.”"
— Shellshock

Shellshock is a Shady Koopa and the leader of the Shellshockers. He is fought in the Major League of the Glitz Pit in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.


Shellshock has a personality similar to that of King K., and is shown to have some kind traits. Once Mario climbs to rank six in the' Glitz Pit, one of his adoring fans leaves him a cake which restores all Heart Points, FP, and Star Power to the maximum. Because of Shellshock's hunger, there is no saving it for another match. If Mario does not eat the cake as soon as it is given to him, he will discover it has already been eaten by Shellshock due to him being fond of sweets as he also mocks Mario saying he liked it. If Mario wisely refuses to eat the second cake given to Mario, Shellshock will eat it as well. After Mario and his partner return from their battle, they will find Shellshock lying on the floor in a semi-paralyzed state, moaning and groaning in utter anguish, due to cake poisoning and states that he will never eat another cake again.     

Later, in the cutscene before the fight with the Shadow Queen, Shellshock can be seen cheering Mario on, along with some of the other Glitz Pit fighters.
