'''Flying shells''' are missiles in ''[[Rayman 2]]'' which
allow [[ Rayman]] to fly in the air. They are only found in [[ the Buccaneer]], except for in ''[[Rayman Revolution]]'' where one appears in [[ Rainbow Creek]] after [[Rayman]] frees the prisoners from [[ the Prison Ship]].
Description == A flying shell is a missile which, unlike normal [[ Shell]] s, can fly. They also don't need to be tamed and seem to show a certain liking towards [[Rayman ]] as can be seen in the final battle where one comes up and helps him fight the [[Grolgoth]]. When controlling a flying shell, the player can stabilize it by holding the strafing button. This does however not work on the [[ Rayman 3D|Nintendo 3DS version]]. In ''[[Rayman Revolution]]'' there is an error in the cutscenes which shows the flying shell with a grey color and looks like the flying shell from [[ the Prison Ship]] level. During the battle, it is yellow, like the common [[walking shell ]]s.
During the development of ''[[Rayman 2]]'', the flying shell didn't exist at first, being originally a [[walking shell]] running on the ceiling.<ref>''[[L'Histoire de Rayman]]'', Chapter 3 - Rayman 2 : The Great Escape, or the challenge of the 3D</ref>
== Appearances == Flying shells appear in all versions of ''[[Rayman 2]]''. Their primary appearance is on [[the Prison Ship]] and the final battle on [[the Crow's Nest ]]. In ''[[Rayman Revolution]]'' one also appears in [[Rainbow Creek]]. In the Playstation version the flying shell has a different functionality during the final battle.
