It's all up to you, Captain Turtle!

Ladybug to Carapace, "Anansi"

Shell-ter is the special superpower granted by the Turtle Miraculous to its owner.


The Turtle Miraculous owner holds up the Shield and materializes a green, spherical barrier with a glowing hexagonal pattern, much like the pattern on a turtle shell.

The force field is strong enough to endure the collapse of a massive, incredibly heavy structure, such as the Arc de Triomphe. So far, the only thing known to be capable of breaking through the force field is the power of another Miraculous. A Cataclysm was capable of breaking the barrier in a single hit; and a Sentimonster was capable of cracking the barrier after several hits.

Shell-ter is capable of cutting through anything that crosses its border, such as Anansi's webs.

Although Shell-ter is handy to use, Carapace must use it wisely, as he can only use it once before detransforming back into his civilian form after five minutes. Jade Turtle isn't subject to this limitation.
