Subsequently, one may also ask, what is the blue shell in Mario Kart called?

The spiny shell, commonly referred to as the blue shell, is a well-known power-up item of the Mario Kart series of video games. Originating in Mario Kart 64, it allows a racer to shoot a projectile directly at the first place racer.

Beside above, why does the blue shell exist? Blue shell is literally the opposite of challenging, it's entirely luck based and there's no way to avoid it. You can lose a race entirely because there was an RNG blue shell. At least in older Mario kart games it was possible to avoid them if you knew what you were doing. Now there's literally no avoiding getting hit.

Also question is, can you dodge a blue shell?

In Mario Kart Tour, blue shells can actually be dodged. With the right item or some expert driving, you can avoid the Blue Shell explosion and continue your dominance on the track.

Who does the blue shell belong to?

Blue Shells, also known as Blue Koopa Shells, are blue Koopa Troopa shells that first appear in Super Mario World, one of the few games where they are actually worn by Koopa Troopas. Like other Koopa Troopa shells, the Blue Shell can be launched when the Koopa Troopa wearing it is jumped on.
