Hardened Shell is an ability introduced in Creature Chaos. In that mod, the maximum defense stat allowed for combined creatures is normally 75, but a creature with Hardened Shell can exceed this value. With this ability, a creature's highest possible defense is 82.

This trait can be very useful if an opponent lacks piercing attacks, as enemies without them will deal little damage to creatures with such high defense. If foes with piercing attacks are present, though, creatures with Hardened Shell will be highly vulnerable to them.
