Mega Mussel (シェッツ Shettsu) is a new enemy introduced in Kid Icarus: Uprising. It is a rather bizarre-looking, oyster-like creature that floats using tiny leaf-like wings. The inside of the oyster contains a soft pillar-like structure, supporting multiple rotating appendages that each hold one or more pink pearl-like eyes designed for 360-degree indiscriminate shooting. These eyes seemingly act as its life source and weakness, as destroying all of them will collapse and defeat the creature itself. In addition, each eye can also shoot a small light projectile, making the entire creature tougher when it has more eyes. It is first encountered in Chapter 3 at ground level. Its shell is invulnerable to all attack, so waiting for the three pink eyes to appear is ideal before attacking. The pearls will regenerate if the Mega Mussel isn't destroyed quickly enough, although they take longer to regenerate every time they are successfully destroyed.
Mega Mussel was designed to attack indiscriminately, and that's exactly what it does. When its scallop-like shell opens, its pearly eyes fire shots in all directions, decimating enemies that group together.
