How to avoid blue shells?
Arg, I feel a bit like an idiot. I accepted an answer thinking you could do it for any answer you thought was correct in my last question, not realizing it'd close the question. So, to hopefully get a bit more help on it since I feel there might be more, reposting it, both answers, and a request for clarifcation on something.
I'm aware of the ability to evade an incoming blue shell by using a mushroom right when it prepares to drop and explode. However, I've heard that blue shells can be dodged by other items and methods, even that someone used a banana peel in a a fashion that was not explained to evade one. What are the other ways to do this, mega mushroom, bullet bill, and the star aside?
Metamorphazone - Some boosters on certain tracks (Moonview Highway, for example), if you boost at the right time, you can avoid them (it's harder though). I wasn't aware of any other items enabling you to dodge 'em.
moarmudkipz - On certain jumps, you can drop a banana at the precise time to make a Blue Shell explode prematurely. Also, my brother says he has dodged a Blue Shell by doing a trick and avoiding a POW block at the same time.
And, the clarification...
Certain jumps? You mean ones that put you high enough in the air to get level with the blue shell, like some of those on Waluigi Stadium?
Beyond clarifying that, are there any other methods? Too bad I can't practice the above in Time Trial.
