Have you ever seen the blue spiny shell that locks on to the leader in Mario Kart referred to as a 'Master Shell'?

It's usually called a 'Blue Shell' or a 'Spiny Shell' in the manuals, but I feel certain that I saw it called a 'Master Shell' in an early manual somewhere for a Mario game that may not have been in the Kart series. I've always called it a Master Shell, but google has no knowledge of anyone calling it that (other than me). I figure on something such as this, google is pretty definitive; is it possible that there is something that was once written in a videogame manual that google is not aware of?
Obviously, this is an extremely important question. Have you ever heard it called a 'Master Shell', or did I just make it up?
