|“||Hello, hello! What kind of weapon are you in the market for?||”|
— When the player enters Ammo Knights
Sheldon has brown eyes and 'buck' teeth, and because he is a horseshoe crab, Sheldon's helmet is the shell of that species of crab. Sheldon wears a military jacket and military boots, as well as a red scarf and a red belt. Sheldon also has, what appears to be brass binoculars that he assumingly uses as glasses.
Personality and traits
Sheldon is a genuine military fanatic from a well-respected family who is fascinated with his weapons. He has developed nearsightedness due to staying up late every night tinkering with weapons and small parts, causing him to be rejected from the military for his extremely poor eyesight. Undaunted, he decided to start a business selling weapons out of his own home, and Booyah Base was eventually built on the same land upon which that home stood. However, it was not Sheldon but his grandfather, Ammoses Shellendorf, who owned the land.
Sheldon's version of DJ Lee Fish's song Lookin' Fresh is more distant, showing his separation from the others as a weapons dealer. It also has static and other sounds reminiscent of a military radio, as a reference to his obsession with the military.
- Sheldon's name plays on the word shell: an ammunitions shell, and horseshoe crabs have large shells.
- Ammoses Shellendorf, Sheldon's grandfather (or Grandpappy as he calls him in the game), was part of the original Squidbeak Splatoon, led by Cap'n Cuttlefish.
