SPINY SHELL

Source: Mario Kart series
Featured in: Smash 4
Type: Throwing
Special effect: Targets the leader.

Trivia:
--Latter-day blue shell style, floating overhead & then crashing down.
--Can damage other players, but not much, unless they're nearby for the final blow.
--You can shield yourself from it with a platform above you.
--Blue Spinys are incredibly rare, only appearing in remakes of Mario Bros. '83 (where Spinys replace Shellcreepers & emulate their color changing), the Battle Mode of the SNES All-Stars version of SMB3 (again, as a color-change), or TTYD (as a variant species).

Nowhere near as effective as it is in Kart. Also, when there's a tie for the lead, it seems to choose a target at random, by which I mean it goes after me.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"
