The Shelling is a species of enemy and a specific enemy in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift.
They are protected by extremely durable hides that make them very resistant to physical attacks. While not very agile or resistant to status effects, these tortoises know several very debilitating skills, such as the equipment-destroying Munch. Magic and debuffs work wonders against them.
- Great Tortoise
A hard, thick shell protects this beast. It often attacks by ramming its ponderous bulk into foes.
Rocky protrusions cover the shell of this immense tortoise.
The adamantitan crushes prey between its steel-like jaws.
No sword can pierce the shell of the toughskin, though many have been lost in the attempt.
Shellings crush enemies with their rock-hard carapaces.
