1. Green shell (Mario Kart)
The red shell was a fabulous thing. A glorious, ruby-tinted homing missile that could be sent hurtling towards your nearest competitor’s brakelights with astonishing accuracy. The blue shell was even better. At the touch of a button, it targeted the driver in first place, immediately detonating them and anyone within their blast radius. The green shell, however, was nothing but an elaborately comical suicide pill. Upon launch, it would generally ricochet chaotically off every surface in sight, before eventually returning to smash its distributor square in the face.
