- Archaeology: He is an expert in the study of ancient human history.
- Palaeontology: He is an expert in the study of prehistoric life.
- Endurance: Presumably referring to him having low stamina, evident by his robust physique.
- Shelly is essentially an abridged version of the Guide from the original picture book, since they are known to read maps.
- Shelly is the first character to lose a life in the film, introducing the players to the concept of having lives to worry about.
- The reason why Bethany chose Oberon was because his nickname was Shelly and was labeled the Curvy Genius; obvious misleads in believing Dr. Oberon was a female avatar.
- Shelly gave one of his lives to Seaplane McDonough to save his life.
