“Did you hear the one about the tortoise and the bomb?”
    —Villain Vault

This Bomb Shell is one of the trappable Magic villains in Skylanders: Trap Team. He was encountered on the Chef Zeppelin, leading the Skylanders on a chase across the deck. Bomb Shell was finally cornered near the back of the deck, where he was taken down and trapped.


Bomb Shell can enter his shell and spin to attack enemies, and also throw bombs that release magic fire for continuous damage.
