From WiKirby, your independent source of Kirby knowledge.
Shelt is an enemy that debuted in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, which does not yield any Copy Abilities when swallowed.
Shelt is a small blue creature that wears a protective metal shell with a point at the front tip, and will attempt to charge anyone who approaches it. Shelt can take a beating, but it will eventually lose its shell and become vulnerable, at which point it will try to run away. Caution must be taken when dealing with a charging Shelt, as attacking it will not necessarily cause it to flinch. It may be better to just move past it, rather than waste valuable time and energy. Of course, Kirby can inhale Shelt's shell to make it less of a threat.
