|“||Some may mock this turtle for her average jumping and crushing abilities, but what they don't realise is slow and steady wins the race. Under Shelby the tortoise's tough exterior lies a turtle in a half shell with super high health. The only shell game Shelby plays involves crushing block after city block in Frisco.||”|
— Official Rampage: Total Destruction description
Shelby is a tortoise monster that made her first debut in Rampage: Total Destruction. She is one of 30 playable monsters (40 on the Nintendo Wii version). This is the only Rampage game she has appeared in.
Shelby was just an ordinary woman until she drank Scum Soda and had a violent reaction that mutated her into a giant tortoise monster. She then went on a rampage until he was captured and imprisoned in a Cryo-Tube hidden in San Francisco.
She is a giant tortoise with a bumpy shell, sharp claws, and sharp beak. Her design is based on snapping turtles.
To be added
- Her name may come from the word "Shell", the name of a turtle's caparace
- It is unknown, whether or not, if Shelby was inspired by Gamera, a giant tortoise kaiju, or Kamoebas, another giant tortoise kaiju.
- Shelby somewhat resembles Bowser, from the Super Mario Bros franchise (particularly the shell and beak).
- Shelby is also one of the slowest monsters, along-side Bubba, in the game. This is true in real-life, since tortoises are quite sluggish.
