"At first I found their song and dance to be rather cute, entertaining even. That was until I realized what they were doing... they didn't seem to realize it either until the large one came. Around me was the large cage and I couldn't flee... Just don't forget me" ~Mario

Physical Description[edit]

More often than not they'll be the host of yellow skin and an array of shell colors, ranging from green to blue or even red. Despite their oddities, they are rather stout and can hold their own against another giving them a rather surprising amount of strength.
