Turtle Shell is one of the multiplayer stages for the Battle mode in Sonic Heroes. When playing all three stages of Team Battle, this is the third and last stage in order if each player has won one stage.
The two teams battle against each other above an arena above a large turtle's shell (hence the name) which takes on the scenery from the stage Ocean Palace in single-player mode. The arena the turtle carries is a flat, fairly-rectangular piece of ruins with green and dark green tiles styled in a checkerboard pattern. A fair few plants grow on the arena such as tiny shrubs and palm trees.
A Wide Spring rests on the ground at either end of the turtle, which grants the player a fully filled Team Blast Gauge, giving the opportunity for the player to launch a Team Blast attack on the opposing team. Early through the fight, round, floating Item Boxes containing Power Cores to enhance the character's level can be seen, making attacks more powerful and able to take down the opposing team quicker. These item boxes will float across the stage before disappearing, so either team needs to be quick to touch them in order to obtain the Power Core.
The player can also knock the opposing team's character(s) off of the sides of the stage, preventing the lead character that got knocked off from being used. However, any lost character(s) can be brought back by using the team's Team Blast should they successfully fill their Team Blast Gauge.
The winner in this stage is whichever team can force the opposing team off the stage first.
