|This page is about the spiritual beast Genbu the Black Turtle. For the giant monster, see Gamera.|
The Turtle is a divine beast from Chinese lore Xuan Wu (Japanese: Genbu). It is one of the four beasts that Maria has control of. It is used as a sub-weapon, but it's more of a protective ability. Maria is able to form a shell around herself and tip toe slowly across the level. The shell can absorb many attacks, but not all. Other incarnations of the turtle divine beast have been seen in other games.
